Alison Roman is going to read bell hooks now

Alison Roman, after giving an apology that sounded like "a woke Amazon Alexa," is back, baby! And now she's gonna be woke as hell!

On Twitter and Instagram, she said she wants to thank those who have taken the time to write her over the last few weeks. If you missed it, Roman received backlash after criticizing Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo for the empires they've built, while trying to shill a new line of vintage spoons reminiscent of Blake Lively's Preserve. People also came out of the woodwork to say she has a history of being one of the most toxic people in food media — especially toward Asian women.


On the list:

-Nora Ephron's "Heartburn"
-Jon Ronson's "So You've Been Publicly Shamed"
-Ijeoma Olu's "So You Want to Talk About Race"
-bell hooks' "all about love"
-Joan Didion's "Slouching Towards Bethlehem"
-T Fleischmann's "Time Is the Thing a Body Moves Through"
-Alexander Chee's "How to Write An Autobiographical Novel"
-Garth Greenwell's "Cleanness"

Sources 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

ONTD, have you ever had to performatively reveal your reading list after getting publicly dragged?
