Target is no longer selling model and liberal activist Chrissy Teigen’s cookware in their stores.
“The retailer has pulled her Cravings cookware line from its website,” a Fox Business report outlined Thursday. “However, her trio of Cravings cookbooks remain available on the site.”
“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,” the company said in a statement.
Teigen made headlines this week when it was revealed that the model harassed, bullied, and allegedly sent private death threats to a then-16-year-old girl named Courtney Stodden.
It remains unclear when the cookware was pulled, but according to a source at TMZ, it was removed in April. However, The Sun suggested Thursday that the products were “scrubbed” from Target’s website following the Stodden scandal.
The TMZ report noted that Teigen’s cookware is still available on her website and other retailers, adding that “some Target brick-and-mortar stores still have the line in their inventory,” according to Fox Business.
Daily Wire host Candace Owens, who recently called on Target to dump Teigen, celebrated the report on Thursday.
“Great news! [Target] has removed Chrissy Teigen’s cookware line from their site after she tried to convince multiple women to kill themselves. This is a good start.”

Earlier this week, The Daily Wire reported on Teigen’s alleged behavior toward Stodden:
When Courtney Stodden was just 16 years old, Teigen sent the minor numerous nasty messages online that included a “fantasy” of Stodden taking a “dirt nap.”
Stodden, whose mother troublingly signed off on her then-teen daughter’s marriage to a 50-year-old actor, told The Daily Beast that Teigen even sent her death threats via direct message.
“[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.’”
The DM’ed death threats have yet to be substantiated, but The Daily Beat posted screenshots of Teigen’s now-deleted nasty messages to the teen online. Here are some of the highlights:
“@CourtneyStodden My Friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby.”
Retweeing Stodden, Teigen posted: “Go. to sleep. forever.”
“@CourtneyStodden what drug makes you do that with your mouth? asking for a friend who really wants to look like an idiot. thanks.”
“@CourtneyStodden do you have a family.”
“@CourtneyStodden I hate you.”
Retweeing Stodden, Teigen posted: “Why do you speak like a Fabio book?”
Following the revelations, and an apology from Teigen acknowledging her behavior, more troubling messages from the model resurfaced.
According to The Mirror, Teigen targeted child actress Quvenzhané Wallis when she was just nine years old. Singers Mariah Carey and Avril Lavigne, actresses Lindsay Lohan and Tamera Mowry, and MTV’s “Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham were also allegedly targeted by Teigen with vile messages, some related to suicide.
