Chrissy Teigen wrote a scathing tweet about Meghan Markle's dad's most recent interview drama
In the latest drama surrounding Meghan Markle and her dad (but mainly her dad), an explosive interview he gave resulted in some pretty damning things being said about his newly-royal daughter. Among other things in his nine-hour (yes, nine-hour) whinge to the Daily Mail, Thomas Markle claimed Meghan would be "nothing" without him and that he's been cut off from the palace because of his recent media stunts. "I made her the duchess she is today," he even said at one point.
To back-track a bit, Meghan's dad was caught up in a media scandal shortly before her royal wedding to Prince Harry after it was revealed that he staged photos of himself to sell to media. Since then, he's apologised, but it seems that the taste of fame and the spotlight – as well as the money – have tempted him into giving out interview after interview.
But rather than sharing adorable childhood stories of Meghan or saying anything nice about her current situation, Thomas has been complaining about how Meghan and the Palace have treated him unfairly. He claims that he's now been cut off from contacting the royals, saying that "numbers were disconnected" and he has no way of contacting Meghan now. But with all the nasty remarks he's been making – not to mention all the rumours that he's started – who can blame them?
Take this, from the Daily Mail interview:
"What's sad is that some time in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I'll be a grandfather, and if we're not speaking I won't see my grandchild. How tragic is that, to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family?"
Obviously he's just trying to tell the newspaper what they want to hear so they can make a bold claim about the newlyweds and the likelihood of them making a few heirs soon. Eugh. Can he be any more annoying?
Well, it seems a lot of people feel the same about him, one of them being none other than Chrissy Teigen. In fact, she got so irritated by the whole thing that she decided to take to Twitter to voice her disapproval of what he was doing to his daughter.
Posting screenshots of the article, Chrissy accompanied them with a slamming caption: "this guy...this guy sucks. what is wrong with him? let your daughter be happy, please. this is embarrassing."
Many would agree with Chrissy in saying that Thomas' latest interview is not something he's doing with his daughter's interests at heart, but just an opportunity to sell some words and cause some drama. People agreed with Chrissy and added their own thoughts to her tweet.
To reiterate what Chrissy said, Thomas Markle – you should just let your daughter be happy.
