Chrissy Teigen's Cravings kitchen line taken down from Macy's website after Courtney Stodden's bullying claims
CHRISSY Teigen's Cravings kitchen line has been taken down from Macy's website after claims that the star bullied Courtney Stodden when she was just a teen.
Courtney – who is nonbinary and prefers "they" pronouns – alleged in a new interview that Chrissy would send horrific tweets and DMs, including comments that appeared to encourage suicide.
Courtney, 26, rose to fame when they married then 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison in 2011 when they were just 16 years old.
The bullying tweets from Chrissy are from 2011 and 2012 – when Courtney was still a teen.
After the tweets were brought back into the spotlight last week, Chrissy issued a public apology, but the damage appears to have already been done.
On Sunday morning, the kitchen items in the model and chef's Cravings by Chrissy Teigen line were marked "unavailable" on Macy's website.
By Sunday afternoon, the did not show up at all on the website.
As The Sun exclusively reported, Chrissy's kitchen items have also been removed from Target's website, though the retail giant has insisted that was a mutual decision made prior to the drama with Courtney.
Target came under fire after Courtney's story broke, with many fans vowing to stop shopping there if they did not stop carrying the products of someone who "admitted to encouraging teen suicide."
In response to a request for comment, Target told The Sun: "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."
Macy's has not yet replied to The Sun's request for comment about Chrissy's brand.
Chrissy apologized this week for her comments from a decade ago.
However, Courtney said they are not buying the apology, and the 26-year-old is even allegedly planning to detail the controversy in a memoir.
Though Courtney has mentioned her problems with Chrissy in the past, they recently spoke out against Chrissy again in an interview with The Daily Beast.
"She wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, 'I can't wait for you to die,'" Courtney said.
Chrissy, a mom of two, took to Twitter to issue a public apology.
"Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls**t in front of the entire world," she began.
"I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll.
"I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that…is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel," she confessed.
Chrissy also added that she "tried to connect with Courtney privately" but since she "publicly fueled all this," she decided to "also publicly apologize."
However, Courtney slammed Chrissy's public apology and claimed she never did so "privately" and only did it to "save face."
This is not the first time Teigen has been under fire for bullying behavior on Twitter.
The mother of two faced backlash for calling Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham a "w***e", claiming "everyone hates you," and for posting a self-harm comment about Lindsay Lohan.
