According to Allure, Nancy Sidley, who runs The Sophisticated Vegan blog alongside her twin sister Stephanie, often calls out celebs on Instagram for wearing fur. Cheban joined the long list of stars such as Scarlett Johansson and Kim Kardashian when Sidley commented "#furhag" on one of his pictures. The comment was enough to send Cheban into a typo-laden insult spree that targeted Sidley's body, face and...eyesight?
@jonathanchebantrolled my IG to tell me, I'm ugly for wearing glasses, I need lip injections, I need a chin implant, I'm the worst looking vegan alive and I'm fat. If I'm all those things, maybe he should be the one wearing glasses? I can't believe @kimkardashian is BFF's with this guy? What if North grows up and doesn't want to get any plastic surgery like me? Would he says the same things to her? The Kardashian brand should not be about putting down women based on their looks and he is part of their brand. He is on their reality show and apart of Kim's Hollywood game. People need to call this guy out on body shaming. We are all beautiful just the way we are. ❤️
When a Twitter user told Cheban that she found his words shocking, this is how the celebrity personality responded. Cheban later deleted the tweet, but not before Sidley grabbed and posted a screenshot.
A girl on Twitter was shocked by the comments #jonathancheban made about my looks and weight and this was his reply to her. How do I stalk his life when he literally trolled my page and wrote how ugly I am over not having plastic surgery? And why would I be "excited" over a guy body shaming a woman?? He's insane! Of course he deleted it 5 minutes later because he looks like a total douche. Thank you, screenshots!
Other than that, Cheban has been mum when it comes to addressing the incident. But then again, he might have just been too busy celebrating his birthday in Paris to make an official comment.
Nancy Sidley decided to take Cheban's derogatory comments in stride by wearing this hilarious t-shirt that the celebrity stylist would probably deem a faux-pas.
Nancy Sidley will soon be selling the t-shirts on her website and donating 100% of the funds to the Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary. The blogger also plans on matching each donation.
Now that is turning lemons into sweet, vegan lemonade.
