A Twitter Fight Over Cookbook Recipes Has to Be the Whitest Shit Ever

If you’re not in touch with “foodie Twitter” allow me to fill you in. The other day, Chrissy Teigen tweeted her displeasure with a fellow foodie, Allison Roman, basically shitting all over her for things that weren’t readily apparent to anyone outside that world.

In an interview, and subsequently in a Twitter thread, Roman basically went off on Teigen for selling shit to her followers? Which is basically the point of an influencer?

It was a long and confusing diatribe, thankfully found through Twitter’s trending algorithm. Thank god Twitter knows my hunger for a catfight. But this was better; it was petty and meaningless (moreso than usual).

Roman made terrible points throughout her thread, only further distancing herself from a sane human (even for a basic white girl foodie influencer) which is a tough hole to climb out of.

The gist of her argument seemed to be that Teigen was using her cookbook success to get a product line at Target. Apparently parlaying success into bigger and better things isn’t cool?

Like I’m sure if Roman got offered such opportunities she’d turn them down because who wants money? Especially in Brooklyn, which I’d be shocked if she lived anywhere else.

The thread has been deleted, but boy was it a treat. Roman also claimed that she would never participate in capitalism, even though she has a best-selling cookbook and is planning her own product line, but it’s not a product line because it’s expensive (again I am just the messenger). 

An excerpt from the article shows her lack of understanding of the word “horrible”. It’s supposed to be a bad thing, like spousal abuse, rape or murder. But, like, so is having a cooking line.

“What Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me,” Roman recently told The New Consumer. “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.”

She also took shots at Marie Condo, in a cooking-turned-accessorizing-feud. This is where things also get a tad racist. Wild times in quarantine, I tell you.

“The idea that when Marie Kondo decided to capitalize on her fame and make stuff that you can buy, that is completely antithetical to everything she’s ever taught you,” Roman said, referring to Kondo’s online store where fans can purchase household items like crystals and storage bins. “I’m like, damn, bitch, you f–king just sold out immediately! Someone’s like ‘you should make stuff,’ and she’s like, ‘okay, slap my name on it, I don’t give a s–t!’”

So yeah, this girl sucks. After trashing a fellow foodie, and executive producer of her show (?) she just had to make things far worse for herself by literally biting the hand that feeds her.

She finished off with a super chill Tweet, since she is clearly the victim of this Twitter beef.

Who am I kidding there’s no way this chick eats beef.
