Meghan Markle's sister absolutely savages 'airhead' Chrissy Teigen in bizarre tweet
In case you weren't aware, Meghan Markle's father dropped some serious shade on his daughter during a nine-hour interview in which he said that he "made" her and that she had completely cut him off from her life. Understandably, the revealing interview raised more than a few eyebrows across the world and was greeted with a degree of sympathy for Thomas, as well as a large amount of criticism.
As we all know by now, Meghan Markle's family are a bit, shall we say... peculiar. Throughout her journey to becoming a duchess, her half-siblings and her father seemed hell-bent on ruining the transformation, with them regularly polluting headlines and accusing the duchess-to-be of being an awful daughter and family member.
But, things seemed to plateau after the wedding, with Thomas wishing the newly-weds well and being outspokenly positive about his daughter. However, as quickly as an olive branch was extended, it was snapped away. During his explosive interview, Thomas claimed that Meghan - and the Palace - had completely cut him out of the picture:
"I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off. Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter."
Not done there, the father also aimed shots directly at Meghan's personality, claiming that she had a "sense of superiority." According to Thomas, she would be nothing without him and all of her success is down to him (hmmm, yeah okay then!)
"I refuse to stay quiet. What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority. She'd be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her. [...] She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her. And did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn't even speak to me now. How cold is that?"
While Thomas may have been trying to draw in the sympathy vote, one person who didn't have any time for him was Chrissy Teigen. Teigen, who is often heralded as the best celebrity on Twitter, took to her social media to shame Thomas Markle for his comments about his daughter, writing:
"this guy...this guy sucks. what is wrong with him? let your daughter be happy, please. this is embarrassing."
And in response, Samantha - Meghan's half-sister - decided to hit up her own (private) Twitter account to call Chrissy a "pudgy airhead." Her full comment is as follows:
"So this pudgy airhead @Christinetiegen Who knows nobody in the family is opening her pie hole? 'This guy' is our father and deserves a lot of respect,.. you are the one who sucks."
Unsurprisingly, Chrissy has refused to acknowledge Samantha's tweet, let alone reply to it. Honestly, Samantha, if you're going to pick a fight with someone, it's probably best to leave the Queen of Twitter alone.
