As if these times aren't dark enough already, Chrissy Teigen, supermodel, cookbook author, and Instagram-famous mom, has announced she's taking a break from Twitter. The announcement comes on the heels of a drama stirred up by popular food writer Alison Roman, who criticized Teigen, as well as Marie Kondo, in an article which riled up Twitter late last week.
Roman is a New York Times food columnist, chef, and cookbook author.
In an article published Thursday in The New Consumer, she basically called Chrissy Teigen a huge sellout, saying:
Like, what Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me. She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her. That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of fucking money.
I’m more interested in expanding myself as a writer. My next book is going to be narrative nonfiction — essays and short stories and stuff.
