Alison then apologized amid backlash, but then Chrissy also faced plenty of backlash from her own critics.

As of Sunday (May 10), Chrissy has decided to take a step back, and also went private.

“I really hate what this drama has caused this week. Calling my kids Petri dish babies or making up flight manifests with my name on them to ‘Epstein island’, to justify someone else’s disdain with me seems gross to me so I’m gonna take a little break. This is what always happens. The first day, a ton of support, then the next, 1 million reasons as to why you deserved this. It never fails,” she wrote.

Food writer Alison Roman found herself in hot water this week after she made some negative comments about Chrissy Teigen and the Cravings empire.

Alison then released an apology to Chrissy on Twitter after receiving a lot of backlash, but many people are not believing her words. “Being a woman who takes down other women is absolutely not my thing and don’t think it’s yours, either,” Alison wrote.

In response to this tweet, a fan replied, “Dude you also mouthed ‘she’s so annoying’ and elaborated on how much you don’t like her *weeks ago* on the Murmurr broadcast. So weird that you’re acting like this was an isolated thing.”

Chrissy saw this tweet and replied, “good to know.”

Alison Roman Apologizes To Chrissy Teigen For Her Comments About 'Cravings' Empire

Chrissy Teigen has received an apology from Alison Roman.

If you missed it, earlier today, cookbook author Alison shaded Chrissy and her “Cravings” books and line by saying that she “didn’t aspire to be that”.

Chrissy then took to social media, revealing she was hurt by Alison‘s comments.

“I started cravings because I wanted something for myself. I wanted something John [Legend] didn’t buy, I wanted something to do that calmed me, made me happy and made others happy, too. Cravings isn’t a ‘machine’ or ‘farmed content’ – it’s me and 2 other women,” she had written.

Now, Alison is making a formal apology to Chrissy for what she said.

Chrissy Teigen Reacts To Alison Roman's Shade: 'This Hit Me Hard'

Alison Roman made headlines this afternoon after sharing that she didn’t want to be like Chrissy Teigen at all.

The food writer and columnist, whose popularity has grown in quarantine while people make her recipes, told New York Consumer, “What Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me. 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.”

Now, Chrissy is responding to her comment.

“This is a huge bummer and hit me hard. I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews,” Chrissy explained on Twitter. “I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article.”

She added, “I started cravings because I wanted something for myself. I wanted something John [Legend] didn’t buy, I wanted something to do that calmed me, made me happy and made others happy, too. Cravings isn’t a ‘machine’ or ‘farmed content’ – it’s me and 2 other women.”

Alison also defended her comments in the article as well: “I want to clarify, I am not coming for anyone who’s successful, especially not women. I was trying to clarify that my business model does not include a product line, which work very well for some, but I don’t see working for me.”
