Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 56, has branded Chrissy Teigen, 35, “the worst kind of shameless, duplicitous woke celebrity” following her public apology after her historic “trolling” comments and messages were unearthed over the past few weeks. Taking to Instagram, the mother-of-two issued a lengthy apology for her 34.9 million followers to see, where she branded herself a “troll” and said that she thought it made her “cool and relatable” to “poke fun” at celebrities.

But in your case, it couldn’t happen to a nastier hypocritical bully

In his column for The Daily Mail, Piers rejected the apology which Chrissy issued over social media and instead branded the former model a “sham”.

He wrote: “Yesterday, in a desperate attempt to save her career, Teigen posted a lengthy apology in which she bleated that she was a changed woman, this all happened when she was young, and she’s so sorry for being a ‘troll’ and an ‘a**hole’… blah blah blah.

“So, like everything else in Chrissy Teigen’s warped world, her mea culpa yesterday was a lie, a sham and deliberate attempt to con the world into thinking she’s a nice person really. She’s not and never has been”, he added.

The ITV presenter went on to liken the TV personality to Jameela Jamil and Meghan Markle, claiming that she demonstrates a lack of both “kindness and compassion” in her treatment of other people.

Piers said: “Like Jameela Jamil and Meghan Markle, she constantly preaches about kindness and compassion whilst simultaneously treating people with a shocking lack of either.

“She never apologised for any of her hateful tweets until they were unearthed, and she never showed an ounce of compassion or forgiveness to any of her myriad victims that she so relentlessly hounded and tried to ruin”, he added.

In 2019, Chrissy demanded the boycott of fitness companies SoulCycle and Equinox after it was reported the chairman of the company had planned to hold a fundraiser for President Donald Trump.

Piers continued and accused the American of “fuelling” cancel culture before calling for the model to be “cancelled” herself and branding her a “bully” over the situation.

He added: “You revelled in fuelling cancel culture, and now you’re getting cancelled yourself because it turned out you’re worse than any of the people you trolled, and yes, I include Donald Trump in that.

“I don’t like cancel culture, because in most cases the victims of it don’t deserve to be cancelled.

“But in your case, it couldn’t happen to a nastier hypocritical bully”, he ended his column.

Over the past few weeks, the wife of singer John Legend has come under fire for messages and posts which have been unearthed from years ago.

Sent to the likes of actress Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Stodden, and Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, Chrissy profusely apologised for her nasty messages and confessed to being a “troll.”

She wrote: “I know I’ve been quiet, and Lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate ‘sit here and think about what you’ve done,'” Teigen wrote.

“Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.”

She continued: “As you know, a bunch of my old awful (awful, awful) tweets resurfaced.

Chrissy continued: “I’m truly ashamed of them. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?”

The star went on to reveal that she was “in the process” of privately contacting those who were on the receiving end of her messages to apologise.

She said: “There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor.

“I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry”, she said before adding that she thought it made her “cool and relatable” to poke fun at celebrities.
