In addition to her derogatory comments and criminal past, Apron users also from Evans for her past drug addiction. The mother opened up about her battle with drugs in her 2017 book, “Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mother.”
According to the People in the book, the teenager’s mother spoke about the beginning of the victims of abuse and said that they were “not glorifying the drug by going into the long details of the reason why people love it so damn much”, but admitted that her first trip was great.”
But the star also detailed the disadvantage of the use of drugs, to explain how it controlled her life and the struggle to get clean.
“My life has changed so much since I stopped doing drugs, my whole attitude has changed,” she told the People in 2015 an interview.
Since he is released from the food delivery brand, Evans has lashed back to the Apron by retweeting complaints from customers on her Twitter page.
@blueapron Would like to add a “handle with care” label to your boxes! Some bruised produce, but I’m just happy that the cold bag was still sealed. #food2MyDoor @ellieca321 #goodEats pic.twitter.com/x7bHtmsF4M

@blueapron hey there, just received my 4th box in a row that had a kind of packing problem of leaky chicken pockets smooshed herbs and today leaks ancho chile paste. I know that things happen in transport, but I am starting to get a little disappointed. ??
