Alison Roman Is Being Called Racist After Her Vicious Attacks on Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo
All is not well in the celebrity cooking world. After being attacked by chef Alison Roman because of her Cravings By Chrissy empire, Chrissy Teigen has officially said goodbye to Twitter for now. The feud between the women escalated quickly with Roman first insulating that Teigen was a sell-out before trolls began jumping in calling Teigen’s children, who were conceived by IVF, “Petri dish babies.”
At first, Roman doubled down on her attack of Teign, before trying to walk it back. However, cooking fans and Twitter users are now pointing out that Roman, a white woman, decided to throw her ire at two women of color.
Now, Roman is being called a racist who attacks other women.
Alison Roman attacked Chrissy Teigen calling her business a ‘content farm’
In an interview with The New Consumer where she should have been promoting her own work. The Nothing Fancy author decided to use her time to shine to drag Chrissy Teigen.
“What Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me,” she said. “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 f****ing money.”
Teigen caught wind of the interview and revealed how upset it made her. “This is a huge bummer and hit me hard,” Teigen wrote. “I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews. I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article I just had no idea I was perceived that way, by her especially. And Marie, too. Marie is awesome.”
Alison Roman shaded Marie Kondo for capitalizing on her fame
In addition to Teigen who has spoken openly about finding her love for cooking because she was trying to impress her husband, John Legend, Roman also took out her ire on Netflix star, Marie Kondo.
“Like the idea that when Marie Kondo decided to capitalize on her fame and make stuff that you can buy, that is completely antithetical to everything she’s ever taught you … I’m like, damn, b*tch, you f—king just sold out immediately!” Roman raged. “Someone’s like ‘you should make stuff,’ and she’s like, ‘okay, slap my name on it, I don’t give a sh*t!’”
Fans of Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo are calling Alison Roman out for her blatant racism
Now fans are calling Roman out for her racism amid her attacks of the Tidying Up star and Teigen. “okay so alison roman having such an issue with marie kondo and chrissy teigen making money off of their passions and interest but has no problem with whatever the f*ck gwyneth paltrow is doing says a lot,” one Twitter user said.
Cultural critic Roxane Gay called it how she saw it. “I like Alison Roman’s recipes,” she tweeted. “I really like Chrissy Teigen and her various endeavors. That interview included some terrible takes. It’s lousy that women of color were the target of her disdain when this is a space dominated by white women. I mean come on.”
Another user said, “Alison Roman coming after Marie Kondo for being successful and making a lot of money is pure Karen energy. There are so few Asians in this lifestyle influencer space anyway and I wonder why she feels the need to drag women of color down just because she doesn’t like competition.”
