Macy’s Pulls Chrissy Teigen's Entire Cookware Line After Bullying Messages
Wife of singer John Legend faces more backlash
Chrissy Teigen’s cookware line has been pulled by Macy’s online store after bullying messages surfaced on the star's Twitter account.
Teigen was forced to issue an apology last week for pressuring the then-16-year-old to kill herself.
The 35-year-old model and wife of singer John Legend admitted she bullied then-minor Courtney Stodden.
The Sun reported:
The kitchen items in the model and chef’s Cravings by Chrissy Teigen line were marked “unavailable” on Macy’s website.
By Sunday afternoon, they did not show up at all on the website.
Teigen’s cookware line was also dumped by Target last week after they announce their decision to part ways because of a 'new direction.'
“We made the mutual decision in December to no longer carry the cookware line, given our continued focus on brands we develop, and that can only be found at Target,” Target said in a statement.
Stodden said in a recent interview that Teigen had told her directly to kill herself.
“[Teigen] wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself,” Stodden said.
“Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.’”
Teigen told Stodden:
“My Friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby,” “Go. to sleep. Forever,” and “what drug makes you do that with your mouth? asking for a friend who really wants to look like an idiot. thanks.”
Teigen apologized for her behavior last week.
“Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world."
"I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll,” Teigen said on Twitter.
“I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior, but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
“I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved, and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly."
"These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try, but god I will try!!” she added.
But Stodden said Teigen's apology was just an attempt to save face over the scandal.
“I accept her apology and forgive her,” Stodden said in an Instagram post.
“But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter.”
“All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record,” she added.
