Chrissy Teigen’s cookware range has been removed from Target stores, but the company insists the decision was made before the recent bullying accusations against her.

Teigen recently publicly apologised after resurfaced tweets from 2011 and 2012 showed her harassing the then 16-year-old model Courtney Stodden.

The tweets said nasty things like, “i hate you” and “go. to sleep. forever.”

In a four-part statement on Twitter, Teigen apologised for her actions, explaining that at the time “I was an insecure, attention seeking troll”.

Stodden, 26, accepted the apology but said it may be an attempt at limiting damage to Teigen’s reputation rather than a sincere attempt to make up for the bullying.

Teigen, who is married to singer John Legend, has become an entrepreneur with a focus on cooking. She has released cookbooks and also had a cookware line, exclusively on sale in US supermarket Target.

It was reported by TMZ that her Cravings cookware line was no longer available to purchase online from the retailer.

However, a spokesperson for the site confirmed that the removal of her products from the website had occurred last month and the decision was made long before the bullying revelation came to light.

The supermarket told Page Six: “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.”

Teigen’s cookbooks are still available to buy from the store and some locations will continue to sell the remaining stock they have.
