The New York Times, a far-left paper that recently allowed one of its columnists to disseminate a despicable lie about Fox News host Sean Hannity, has suspended another columnist for the apparent sin of criticizing anti-Trump celebrity Chrissy Teigen and organizing expert Marie Kondo.

In an interview earlier in the month with another outlet, this columnist, famed cook and food expert Alison Roman, dared to criticize the route Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo had taken career-wise. And now, roughly two weeks later, her column has reportedly been suspended.

“A spokesperson for the paper confirmed … on Tuesday that Roman’s column is “on temporary leave.” The paper did not elaborate on how long it would last nor did it give a specific reason for why,” The Daily Beast reported.

All this because Roman had expressed feeling as if Teigen and Marie Kondo had chased after fame and fortune instead of displaying real passion and interest for cooking and organizing, respectively.

“She had a successful cookbook, and then it was like boom, line at Target,” she’d said of Teigen. “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. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of f—ing money.”

She’d added: “I’d rather stay small and always be myself. But at the same time, I do need to figure out how to turn this into money.”

In response, Teigen had thrown a “woe is me” fit.

Look:

There was a certain irony to it, given as Teigen is a nasty woman who has no qualms about spewing genuinely vile remarks about President Donald Trump and his family.

But faced with simple criticism, she fell apart to such a degree that Roman felt compelled to issue an apology to her and also Kondo.

Look:

“I need to learn, and respect, the difference between being unfiltered and honest vs. being uneducated and flippant,” she wrote. “The burden is not on them (or anyone else) to teach me, and I’m deeply sorry that my learning came at Chrissy and Marie’s expense.”

But the apology was apparently not enough for the Times, which has no issues publishing blatant lies and smears — not to mention assassination fantasies about the president — but cannot tolerate one of its columnists uttering criticism toward a profanity loving anti-Trump zealot.

The apology was enough for Teigen, though:

It’s unclear if and when Teigen will ever be held accountable for her own stinging, hateful comments toward anyone who dares to think differently than her.

In a tweet posted two months ago, she described first lady Melania Trump’s successful “Be Best” program as “be best s–t” and labeled the president a “do nothing f—ing loser wimp.”

Look (*Language warning):

It’s not clear why the Times is more concerned with not hurting this woman’s feelings than it is with not being a garbage paper.
