At the top of a discussion about Mental Health Awareness Month with co-star Colin Jost, Davidson joked, "If there's one good thing about the pandemic, besides getting Chrissy Teigen out of our lives..."

The 27-year-old comedian paused due to the audience's boisterous response. He then made a face and added, "I'm relieved," while shrugging his shoulders and quickly moving on to talk about mandatory mask-wearing and chats with his therapist.

He did not mention the 35-year-old model-turned-cookbook author again.

The Twitter-loving wife of John Legend has found herself in a major career pickle following allegations she once urged a then-teenage Courtney Stodden to kill themselves.

Just last week, Bloomingdales became the latest major retailer to distance itself from her.

According to Page Six, the Upper East side institution pulled out of a nearly finalized deal with Teigen – which reportedly involved her hosting a promotional event for the store – due to her recently resurfaced cyber-bullying scandal involving Stodden and others.

"They pretty much had it together … but had to cancel it," the insider said.

Mere days before that, Macy's – which shares a parent company with Bloomies – appeared to pull Teigen's Cravings by Chrissy cookware line from its website, as the entire collection is now "unavailable" for purchase.

Another source familiar with the situation told Page Six that Macy's removed the products from its site because internet users were flooding the review sections with opinions on the scandal. The source added that the company has not yet made a decision about whether Teigen's merchandise will ever be available on Macy.com again.

Along with Davidson's public dig, this is all the latest in the continued fallout stemming from Teigen recently having copped to cyber-bullying Stodden, who claimed Chrissy's decade-old public Twitter attacks got darker in private.

Back in 2011/2012, Chrissy was vocal about her hatred for Courtney, often publicly tweeting messages wishing they would take a "dirt nap" and "go to sleep forever." At the time, Stodden was just 16 years old and under heavy public scrutiny for their marriage to a then-50-year-old man, actor Doug Hutchison.

But the allegations against Chrissy really only made headlines this month, after Stodden alleged Teigen would also urge them to commit suicide private messages.

In response to the backlash, Teigen tweeted a public apology to Stodden and her fans, saying she was "mortified and sad" at who she used to be. "I was an insecure, attention seeking troll," she went on, claiming she had "tried to connect with Courtney privately."

Though Stodden accepted the apology and forgave Chrissy, they claimed they "never heard from her or her camp in private." Courtney noted the apology felt like "a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her 'wokeness' is a broken record."

Interestingly enough, Target did pull her Cravings cookware line from its website, but it reportedly happened before the current Stodden saga made the news.

Eagle-eyed fans have since uncovered more mean tweets from the then-model's days of spewing hate online.

She once called a then-9-year-old actress, Quvenzhané Wallis, "cocky," and called a then-21-year old Farrah Abraham a "whore" who everyone hated.

Teigen has not commented on the matter further and has remained mum on social media.
