"It wasn't the time or place for me to correct that because the issue wasn't—like that felt really petty to be like, ‘Not true. Nuh-uh,'" Roman said.
Ziwe also asks Alison how many black friends she has.
i asked Alison Roman how many black friends she had and her answer... was enlightening. check out my instagram stories (@ ziwef) for the full interview pic.twitter.com/0r4KXl7IaO— ziwe (@ziwe) June 26, 2020
Here are some other highlights:
-Ziwe and Alison played a game where they identified civil rights leaders.
-Alison Roman says there were no black people when she worked at bon Appetit (even though New Yorker writer Doreen St. Felix replied that she worked WITH Alison when she interned there). Alison said she contributed to a toxic culture at BA by doing and saying nothing.
-Alison tries to name 5 Asian people and it's a struggle.
Also obligatory in every Alison post:
Don't feel bad. She's long had the reputation of being the most toxic person in food media, particularly—and weirdly—to Asian women. Previously, it was lesser-known people. Sorry, you caught that end of the stick—everyone else in food respects you—but it's not new from her.— Mari Uyehara (@mariuyehara) May 9, 2020

ONTD, what a bizarre lie on Chrissy's part if true. Why do you think she would lie?
