Macy’s reportedly pulled all products from Chrissy Teigen’s cookware line from its online store days after years-old bullying messages Teigen made to a then-underage girl resurfaced online.
Teigen issued a public apology for her behavior toward Courtney Stodden on Wednesday. Teigen and her brand may still be suffering from the blowback of her messages to Stodden, sent in 2011 and 2012 when Stodden was a teen, however. According to the U.K.’s The Sun:
On Sunday morning, the kitchen items in the model and chef’s Cravings by Chrissy Teigen line were marked “unavailable” on Macy’s website.
By Sunday afternoon, the did not show up at all on the website.
Macy’s did not immediately return The Daily Wire’s request for comment.
Target has dumped Teigen’s cookware line. The retail corporation said that it made the decision to part ways with Teigen back in December because of a new direction the company wanted to take. The decision, the company said, was made before the revelations about Teigen surfaced and was not impacted by Teigen’s decade-old messages.
“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 revealed Teigen’s messages in a recent interview, saying 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.’”
In a series of since-deleted messages, 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.
Stodden slammed Teigen’s apology on Twitter, suggesting that it was an attempt by Teigen to save face over the scandal. Stodden also said that she had never heard from Teigen or received an olive branch or private apology Teigen had tried to send privately.
“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.
