Former Good Morning Britain co-anchor Piers Morgan, 56, has aired his thoughts after it emerged that Chrissy Teigen, 35, had sent abusive messages to reality star, Courtney Stodden. It’s said that John Legend’s wife is “mortified” by her previous behaviour.

Does Ms Teigen, the Canceller-in-Chief of celebrity cancel culture, now get cancelled herself then?

Chrissy has since admitted that she sent Courtney, 26, messages urging them to kill themselves in 2011, for which she has now apologised.

Former Celebrity Big Brother star Courtney found fame aged just 16 when they married Doug Hutchinson, who was 51 at the time of their wedding in 2011.

The reality star, who recently came out as non-binary, revealed earlier in the week that they received multiple abusive messages from Chrissy.

Piers, who is known for his outbursts, has said that Ms Teigen should be “cancelled” after her previous messages came to light.

In view of his 7.9 million Twitter followers, Piers wrote: “Does Ms Teigen, the Canceller-in-Chief of celebrity cancel culture, now get cancelled herself then?

“Or does she get a pass for her despicable conduct because she’s a wokie?”

Piers’ Twitter followers instantly took to the replies to stand in solidarity with his view.

“She apologised on Twitter not to the person as she blocked her, an apology isn’t worth anything if the person doesn’t hear/see it and it only happened after she got called out for it,” said one.

A second went on to ask: “Has Chrissy always been ashamed and completely embarrassed of this behaviour or just since it became common knowledge?”

While a third penned: “Any adult that bullies a 16-year-old and tells them to die by suicide deserves to be banned from every social media organisation for abusing the platform.”

Following Courtney’s revelation, Chrissy has since taken to her Twitter page in front of her 13.6 million followers to address the claims.

The author admitted that she is “sorry” for letting her fans down.

In a series of tweets, Chrissy wrote: “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past b*****it in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll.

“I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behaviour but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.

“I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!”

She added: “I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fuelled all this, I want to also publicly apologise. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am. And I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago.”

Courtney claims that Chrissy “would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself” before adding that the model previously told the star to “go to sleep forever”.

They added: “[Chrissy] wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.'”

A ‘dirt nap’ is a derogatory term to describe somebody who has been buried.

It’s believed that in 2011, Chrissy tweeted: “[email protected] my Friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmm baby.”

In a statement issued to TMZ, Courtney said: “I accept her apology and forgive her. But, the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter.

“All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realising her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record.”
