Macy's drops Chrissy Teigen cookware line over Courtney Stodden row, Candace Owens calls it 'the right thing'
As per reports, ‘Cravings’ products did not show up at all on Macy's website days after the model was slammed for bullying Stodden
Chrissy Teigen has recently been at the receiving end of online outrage. Following that, Target made a change in its partnership with Teigen. The American retail corporation has reportedly pulled Teigen’s ‘Cravings’ cookware line from its website. This revelation came on Thursday, May 13, just a day after Teigen apologized to Courtney Stodden for telling them to commit suicide in 2011. Now, reportedly, Teigen's ‘Cravings’ kitchen line has been taken down from Macy's website.
Teigen has apologized for her behavior, saying that she is “mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll,” and that she had “tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize.” Stodden accepted her apology, even though they claimed that they “never heard from her or her camp in private”.
And reportedly, the partnership between Target and Teigen reportedly ended in December 2020. Target simply removed the line from its website as part of a previously agreed change with the company whereby Cravings is no longer exclusive to Target, as per reports. A Target spokesperson told the press, "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."
But now, right-wing political commentator Candace Owens has come into the fray, attacking the model. “I am pleased to announce that as of this evening, Macy’s has removed Chrissy Teigen’s cookware line from its website. Thank you @Macys for doing the right thing. Teenage suicide is not a joke. Thank you to everyone on the media for covering this story extensively,” Owens tweeted.
More people spoke about this online. One Twitter user said: “Macy’s and target really said idk her to Chrissy teigen.” Another Twitter user said, “Chrissy Teigen gets booted from Macy's and Target. Don Lemon is leaving CNN Tonight... as his career slowly fizzles & fades. Ellen DeGeneres is ending her show. Bet her staff is grateful to no longer be tormented by her tyranny. Having a great week. How about you?”

As per various reports, on Monday morning, May 17, ‘Cravings’ products did not show up at all on Macy's website. Neither Teigen nor Macy’s had issued statements regarding this at the time of writing this report.
In a recent interview, Stodden said that Teigen “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’... There were a lot of celebrities acting like playground bullies. Some of the worst treatment I got was from women, and we’re not going to get anywhere if we keep holding each other back.”
Regarding Teigen's apology, Stodden shared a screengrab of Teigen’s Twitter account where she had blocked them. Stodden said that Teigen had blocked them on Twitter. “All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record,” they said.
