Piers Morgan has attacked yet another woman for actions he calls “shameless”.
Chrissy Teigan, 35, released a statement on Monday confirming that she “was a troll, full stop” following Courtney Stodden’s shock reveal of cruel messages sent to her by the model when she was just starting out in the industry.
The public apology has divided opinion with many claiming that Teigan is “only sorry she’s been exposed”.
In his latest MailOnline column, Piers wrote: “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: “In fact, she’s always been a despicable piece of work who built a career around being married to a pop star and being a professional social media troll.”
After comparing her to his famous foe Meghan Markle and actress Jameela Jamil, the former Good Morning Britain presenter said: “She never apologized 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 continued. ‘In fact, quite the opposite – she told them she wished them dead.
“So, sorry Chrissy – but spare me your pathetic crocodile tears.
“I don’t like cancel culture, because in most cases the victims of it don’t deserve to be canceled. But in your case, it couldn’t happen to a nastier hypocritical bully.”
The statement from John Legend’s wife, released on Medium, says: “I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs,
“I know I let you down, but I hope I can make you proud. It’s been a heavy few weeks, so I’m going to take some more time to focus on things that are most important — being with my family and taking care of myself,
“We are all more than our worst moments. I won’t ask for your forgiveness, only your patience, and tolerance.
“I ask that you allow me, as I promise to allow you, to own past mistakes and be given the opportunity to seek self-improvement and change.”
