The New York Times recently put the cooking columnist Alison Roman on temporary leave after she made some disparaging comments about Teigen’s food brand, Cravings, and Netflix organizational star Marie Kondo.
Roman said that Teigen’s fast success in the food market “horrified” her and claimed that other people were “running a content farm for her.”
Roman said that Kondo was a “sell-out for trying to capitalize on her fame and make stuff that you can buy” when her shtick is to declutter your life.”
Teigen responded that Roman’s remarks “hit me hard.”
“I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social, and praised her in interviews,” Teigen said.
More from Fox News:
Roman was blasted on social media for knocking another woman’s business and subsequently apologized to Teigen and Kondo in a long letter on social media a few days later.
“I need to learn, and respect, the difference between being unfiltered and honest vs. being uneducated and flippant,” she wrote. “The burden is not on them (or anyone else) to teach me, and I’m deeply sorry that my learning came at Chrissy and Marie’s expense. They’ve worked extremely hard to get where they are, and both deserve better than my tone deaf remarks.”
I’ve thought a lot this weekend about my interview and the things I said. I know this is a lengthy note (succinctness has never been my strong suit). I appreciate you taking the time to read. pic.twitter.com/3iGAyN3c9d

Teigen publicly forgave Roman. They also are reportedly working on a TV show together but production has been put on hold during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I very publicly forgave Alison and that was real,” Teigen wrote on Twitter.
“When I said I don’t believe in being canceled for your honest opinion, that was very real. I don’t agree with what the NYT has done, I am not them. I didn’t call them, I didn’t write, and most of all, I’d like her back.”
