Chrissy Teigen ‘not happy’ Alison Roman’s column went on leave

Chrissy Teigen 'not happy' Alison Roman's column went on leave

“I hope we can laugh at it one day, but I’m not happy with the New York leave, so he can’t laugh yet,” Teigen wrote in a tweet. “It sucks anyway.”

Roman’s column was placed on “temporary leave,” a New York Times spokesman, who declined to elaborate, told CNN earlier this week.

Teigen replied after The Times colleague Bari Weiss tweeted a story from Daily beast, who was the first to report that Romano’s column was put on leave.

“You once had to do something real to be canceled. Apparently now you just have to criticize a celebrity!” Weiss wrote.

“I don’t like it a bit and I’m doing what I can (off Twitter) to make it known,” commented Teigen in response.

CNN contacted Roman for comment.

Roman apologized and said she was “deeply embarrassed” for the comments she made regarding Teigen and Marie Kondo’s activities in an interview with New consumer published last week.

“Among the many unpleasant things that I started to elaborate is the awareness that my comments were rooted in my insecurity,” Romans wrote in a post on social media last Friday. “My inability to appreciate my success without confronting and knocking others down – in this case two established women – is something I certainly recognize the struggle with, and I’m working to fix it. I don’t want to be a person like that.”

Both Teigen and Kondo have a kitchen line that they sell as part of their commercial empires, which Roman seems to criticize in his interview with New Consumer.

“The idea that when Marie Kondo decided to capitalize on her fame and do things you can buy, this is completely antithetical to everything she ever taught you …” Roman said to consumer demand and pollution. “I’m like, damn, fuck, you just ran out immediately! Someone’s like ‘you should do things’, and it’s like,’ okay, slap my name on it, I don’t ‘give it like ***!'”

Roman’s criticism of two successful Asian women was met with a backlash on social media and hurt by Teigen, who wrote on Twitter that she considered herself a Roman advocate and admirer.

Before the column was suspended, Teigen accepted Roman’s apology in a series of tweets.

“I still think you have an incredible talent” Teigen wrote. “And in an industry that doesn’t really lend itself to supporting more than a handful of people at a time, I feel like all we have are in each other!”

A Kondo representative previously told CNN he had no comment.
