Bloomingdale’s cancels promo event with Chrissy Teigen

Bloomingdale’s has become the latest brand to drop Chrissy Teigen over her 2011 Twitter message to Courtney Stodden telling her to kill herself. 

Teigen was due to sign a contract to host a promotional event at the department store but it was torn up at the last minute. 

An insider told Page Six on Tuesday: ‘They pretty much had it together but they had to cancel it’. 

It comes as little surprise given Bloomingdale’s is owned by the same parent company as Macy’s, which pulled Teigen’s cookware line earlier this week.     

Teigen, 35, has come under fire over the past several days, after tweets in which she told a then 16-year-old Stodden, now 26, to take their own life, resurfaced.

Stodden has alleged how Teigen sent her shocking tweets and direct messages that appeared to encourage her to take their own life. 

Stodden revealed Teigen still hasn’t apologized to them privately and has called for her to lose her lucrative branding deals, warning companies that it’s ‘not a good look’ to be ‘aligning with someone who encourages a minor to commit suicide’. 

Stodden blasted Teigen saying she had ‘made her career out of apologizing’ and questioned the sincerity of her public Twitter apology. 

On Monday morning, the kitchen items, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen line did not show up at all on Macy’s website. 

In the wake of the scandal, it was also revealed that Teigen lost her contract with retail giant Target, although the retailer said a decision was made to drop her in December, before the current scandal broke.

Its website also no longer displays her cookware line Cravings by Chrissy Teigen – which she launched with them exclusively in 2019 – but it is still selling three of her cookbooks.

Target say the partnership ended at the end of 2020 and has nothing to do with the controversy. 

‘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,’ the company said in a statement. 

Teigen came under fire last week after Stodden revealed the former model and wife of John Legend sent abusive messages in the past telling them to commit suicide. 

In 2011, Teigen inundated Stodden with nasty tweets including one where she told her to ‘go to sleep forever’. 

Stodden was 16 at the time. 

Teigen, who took pride in her tweets previously and won millions of fans through them, has apologized publicly and she said she tried to contact Stodden. 

Stodden says she has not.  

‘She apologized on Twitter but I was blocked from the apology so couldn’t really see it but a few people sent it to me,’ they said.

‘I feel if she was sincerely sorry she would have at least got in touch with me privately. She said she did but she didn’t.’
