CANDACE Owens celebrated the removal of Chrissy Teigen's line from Macy's website as she blasted the model with a reminder that "teen suicide is not a joke."
Teigen, 35, has come under fire after claims she bullied Courtney Stodden online when she was just a teen.
Old tweets have also resurfaced in which Teigen called on Sarah Palin to "shoot herself in the face."
The Sun exclusively revealed yesterday that Teigen's kitchen line has been taken down from Macy's website.
On Sunday morning, the kitchen items in the model and chef's Cravings by Chrissy Teigen line were marked "unavailable."
By Sunday afternoon, they did not show up on the website at all.
"I am pleased to announce that as of this evening, Macy’s has removed Chrissy Teigen’s cookware line from its website," Owens wrote on Twitter as the news broke.
"Thank you @Macys for doing the right thing.
"Teenage suicide is not a joke. Thank you to everyone on the media for covering this story extensively."
Owens had blasted Teigen as Stodden's claims came to light, claiming the mother-of-two "should've been canceled long ago."
She shared multiple old tweets from Teigen in which the model targeted Sarah Palin and referenced Lindsay Lohan as self-harming.
"It’s been brought to my attention that Chrissy Teigen also mocked Demi Lovato for seeking treatment for addiction at a rehab center in 2010, telling her to 'make the bed for Charlie [Sheen]' on her way out," Owens also claimed.
"Demi was also just a teenager.
"#SurvivingChrissyTeigen should be a documentary," Owens added.
"Insane how many celebrities have quietly reached out to me thanking me staying on this story.
"She has been a media-sanctioned predator for a long time."
Stodden – who is nonbinary and prefers "they" pronouns – alleged in a new interview that Teigen would send horrific tweets and DMs, including comments that appeared to encourage suicide.
The 26-year-old rose to fame when they married then 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison in 2011 when they were just 16 years old.
The bullying tweets from Teigen are from 2011 and 2012 – when Stodden was still a teen.
After the tweets were brought back into the spotlight last week, Teigen issued a public apology, but the damage appears to have already been done.
Target also came under fire after Stodden's story broke, with many fans vowing to stop shopping there if they did not stop carrying the products of someone who "admitted to encouraging teen suicide."
Teigen's kitchen items have also now been removed from Target's website, though the retail giant has insisted that was a mutual decision made prior to the drama with Stodden.
In response to a request for comment, Target told The Sun: "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 apologized last week for her comments from a decade ago.
"Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls**t in front of the entire world," she began.
"I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll.
"I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that…is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel," she confessed.
She added that she "tried to connect with Courtney privately" but since she "publicly fueled all this," she decided to "also publicly apologize."
However, Stodden slammed Teigen's public apology and claimed she never did so "privately" and only did it to "save face."
The 26-year-old is even allegedly planning to detail the controversy in a memoir.
Although Stodden has mentioned their problems with Teigen in the past, they recently spoke out against her again in an interview with The Daily Beast.
"She wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, 'I can't wait for you to die,'" Stodden said.
This is not the first time Teigen has been under fire for bullying behavior on Twitter.
The mother-of-two faced backlash for calling Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham a "w***e", claiming "everyone hates you," and for posting a self-harm comment about Lindsay Lohan.
