Bloomingdales is the latest to drop Chrissy Teigen’s products amid her cyberbullying scandal, according to The Daily Wire.
“Page Six has learned that Bloomingdale’s walked away from a deal with Chrissy Teigen at the 11th hour because of her explosive cyberbullying scandal.”
“Bloomingdale’s was hours away from signing a contract with the Twitter personality and cookbook author, which would see her host a promotional event for the store, but pulled the plug on Monday because of the toxic press swirling around Teigen.”
“They pretty much had it together … but had to cancel it.”
“Stodden revealed Teigen’s messages in a recent interview, saying that Teigen had told her directly to kill herself.”
“'[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,’” Stodden stated.
“Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.’”
“Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world.”
“I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll,” Teigen stated.
“I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
“‘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.”
From The Daily Wire:
Luxury department store Bloomingdales is the latest retailer to end its relationship with model and actress Chrissy Teigen amid allegations that Teigen bullied reality star Courtney Stodden and several other individuals over Twitter.
Bloomingdales had reportedly been poised to ink a deal with Teigen for a promotional event for the chain’s Manhattan store but pulled out on Monday because of “toxic press” surrounding the star.
Teigen, who rose to fame as a model before becoming a social media influencer and cookbook author, also had deals with Target and Macy’s to sell her branded line of cookware and kitchen items, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen.
Last week, however, allegations surfaced that Teigen, who recently styled herself as an anti-cyber-bullying advocate, had bullied Stodden and other reality stars over Twitter. As The Daily Wire reported, Stodden says that Teigen sent threatening and harassing messages to her over Twitter and through the platform’s direct message function.
Teigen issued a lukewarm apology for her behavior, acknowledging that she had sent inappropriate messages to Stodden and others.
Stodden said the apology was inadequate, and the mea culpa was, apparently, not enough for Macy’s, which reportedly pulled Teigen’s Cravings line from its website earlier this week. Teigen’s cookware is no longer available at Target, but that mega-retailer says it dropped its relationship with the star back in 2020 because it was seeking an exclusive relationship, well before allegations of Teigen’s online behavior emerged.
