A food writer and New York Times columnist, Alison Roman, has slammed Chrissy Teigen’s website, which she called a ‘content farm.’ Furthermore, she even revealed that the supermodel’s food empire ‘horrifies’ her in an interview for The New Consumer.
Hearing about the harsh criticism, Chrissy, who is well known for how outspoken she is on social media, did not hesitate to clap back and defend herself.
That being said, she admitted to feeling ‘really bummed’ over what the food writer had to say about Cravings by Chrissy Teigen – her cooking site!
Roman stated via The New Consumer in an article published a couple of days ago that ‘what Chrissy Teigen’s done is crazy to me. She had a successful cookbook. And then, Boom, line at Target. Boom, she now has an Instagram page which has over a million followers where it is just, like, other people running a content farm for her. That horrifies me and it is not something I ever want to do. I do not aspire to that. But like, who is laughing now? Because she is making a ton of f***ing money.’
Soon after, Chrissy took to her Twitter account to clap back at Alison.
The Cravings author wrote that: ‘This is a huge bummer and it hit me hard. I’ve made her recipes for years, bought her cookbooks, supported her on social media and praised her during interviews. I even signed on to executively produce the show she talks about doing in the article.’
She made sure to defend her website against the accusation that it is a ‘content farm,’ stressing that she simply started it so she would have something that husband, John Legend did not buy for her – something all hers that made her and others happy.
Chrissy insisted that the site’s content is not ‘farmed’ and that only she and other two women work on publishing content.
‘I didn’t ‘sell-out’ by making my dreams come true. To have a cookware line, to get to be a part of that process start to finish, to see something go from sketch to in my hands, I love that,’ the mother of two also tweeted.
