Hope the apology was hand written but Chrissy Teigen returned to Twitter on Monday evening following her feud with food writer Alison Roman.
The supermodel, 34, took a one-day break from the social media platform after the Nothing Fancy author, also 34, blasted her and Japanese host Marie Kondo’s business models in a recent interview.
However, the pair have now appeared to make amends as the wife of musician John Legend ‘thanked’ New York Times’ Alison for issuing an apology over her ‘stupid, careless and insensitive’ remarks.
The media personality made her account, followed by 12 million users, private over the weekend and vowed to step away from the micro-blogging site after experiencing a backlash.
Acknowledging Alison’s efforts to patch things up, Chrissy wrote: ‘thank u for this, @alisoneroman. To be clear, it never once crossed my mind for u to apologise for what you genuinely thought!
‘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!
‘I don’t agree with the pile-on, ppl waiting with bated breath for apologies, deciding if that apology is good, the ppl who say u were right & never needed to in the first place – there are so many different types in this kind of situation & tbh, I just want it to be over.
‘I think we are alike in so many ways. I remember the exact time I realised I wasn’t allowed to say whatever popped in my head – that I couldn’t just say things in the way that so many of my friends were saying. Before, I never really knew where I stood in the industry, in the world.’
Admitting she was once able to identify with the columnist’s outspoken nature, Chrissy added: ‘Eventually, I realised that once the relatable ‘snarky girl who didn’t care’ became a pretty successful cookbook author and had more power in the industry, I couldn’t just say whatever the f— I wanted.
‘The more we grow, the more we get those wake up calls. Oh! but how I still think some of those things. I just maybe don’t unleash on my peers on super public platforms lol…
‘and if anyone needs a lesson on how less is more, please look at the amazing Marie Kondo, who so very wisely didn’t say s— through any of this [sic].’
The mother-of-two’s social media comeback came after Alison posted a lengthy apology on her own Twitter page.
The LA native shared: ‘It was stupid, careless and insensitive. I need to learn, and respect, the difference between being unfiltered and honest vs. being uneducated and flippant.
‘Why couldn’t I express myself without tearing someone down? I definitely could have, and I’m embarrassed I didn’t.’
Calling herself a ‘white woman who has and will continue to benefit from white privilege,’ Alison claimed her position ‘makes what I said even more inexcusable and harmful.’
She added: ‘The fact that it didn’t occur to me that I had singled out two Asian women is one hundred percent a function of my privilege (being blind to racial insensitivities is a discriminatory luxury).
‘I know that our culture frequently goes after women, especially women of colour, and I’m ashamed to have contributed to that [sic].’
In Alison’s New York Consumer interview – which sparked the outrage – she had described Chrissy’s climb to the top of the food empire with her Cravings empire as ‘crazy.’
She added: ‘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.’
