Target Is Selling Chrissy Teigen's Cookware Again Despite Her Problematic History
From "woke" politics to selling Chrissy Teigen's cookware, it's almost like Target is trying to tank its sales on purpose.
Target has pulled their LGBT+ items from their shelves following a massive backlash from shoppers. Last week, CEO Brian Cornell touted the chain's efforts to be more inclusive, but the collection only led to complaints that allegedly threatened workers' safety. “Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work,” Target said in a statement.
“Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior.” But the pullback was too late, and the chain had lost $9 billion in market value following boycotts.
In other news, Target is now reportedly selling Chrissy Teigen's cookware, Cravings, again after the retailer pulled her line from their websites in 2021. The decision was made after she came under fire for bullying Courtney Stodden, though the chain claims they were focusing "on brands we develop and that can only be found at Target."
Between 2011 and 2012, the model and author told Stodden, then 16, to kill herself several times through DMs after she made headlines for marrying 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Stodden revealed that Teigen repeatedly sent her harmful messages. Teigen took to Twitter to apologize shortly after this, but people believed it was just an attempt to save her partnership with Target. "I have tried to connect with Courtney privately, but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am," she said.
The model was also known for writing problematic tweets that sounded a lot like pedophilia. "I just saw a baby that looked like a porn star," she wrote on September 23, 2009. "Like a trashy do-anything porn star. Is this wrong to think?"
In a similar (and gross) fashion, she once said: "I'm bored. Really wanna watch kids give birth. Where can I watch teens giving birth? MTV? I mean that doesn't make sense but I'll try."
One of the worst ones she had the audacity to post was, "seeing little girls do the splits half naked is just..... i want to put myself in jail. #toddlersandtiaras." Perhaps she's joking – or maybe, there's actually something else going on. Whatever the case, her history with abusive remarks and gross statements should be compelling enough for people to stop shopping at Target.
