AceShowbiz - Chrissy Teigen does not approve of the New York Times' decision to temporarily shelve Alison Roman's food column. Days after she got into a war of words with the food critic over the latter's insensitive remarks, the former swimsuit model learned about the publication's move, and made it clear she wants her back.
"I very publicly forgave Alison and that was real," wrote the 34-year-old in response to a Twitter critic. "When I said I don't believe in being cancelled for your honest opinion, that was very real. I don't agree with what the NYT has done, I am not them." She went on to call for the reinstatement of Alison. "I didn't call them, I didn't write, and most of all, I'd like her back," she stressed.
The wife of John Legend has also expressed her disappointment when one fan asked, "Has the beef been squashed?" She tweeted in response, "I hope we can laugh about it one day but I'm not happy with the NYT leave so she def can't laugh about it yet. It just sucks in every way." In a separate tweet, she noted, "I don't like this one bit and I'm doing what I can (off Twitter) to make that known."
Chrissy had a fallout with Alison in early May after the blogger claimed she was left "horrified" by the "Lip Sync Battle" host's popularity in the food world. Her remarks let to Chrissy declaring a social media break after admitting that the words "hit me hard." She added, "I genuinely loved everything about Alison. Was jealous she got to have a book with food on the cover instead of a face!! ... I guess we should probably unfollow each other @alisoneroman."
After Alison issued her second apology for her remarks, Chrissy returned to Twitter to thank the journalist for trying to make amends. "To be clear, it never once crossed my mind for u to apologize for what you genuinely thought!" she added. "The comments stung, but they more so stung because they came from u! It wasn't my usual news break of some random person hating everything about me!"
Though Chrissy has accepted Alison's apology, a representative for the New York Times confirmed on Tuesday, May 19 that Alison's column has been put "on temporary leave."
