British television personality and troll, Piers Morgan, recently posted an insensitive tweet following the loss of Muhammad Ali, “I hope people don’t make me sound too perfect when I die. No coats of sugar please,” which many found inappropriate and rude including John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.

The singer and model both went in on Morgan with John tweeting, “You could test us by announcing your retirement,” and Teigen saying, “From what? trolling isn’t a job (I’ve tried).”

The British personality did his best to clap back with an insult tossed at Teigen, who quickly fired off another shot.

Morgan continued to bait the couple by telling them to read his column on Ali and racism, but Teigen was having none of it, comparing Morgan’s claim that he wasn’t racist to Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense, “Remember when Bruce Willis didn’t know he was dead? It’s like that.”

Morgan recently came under fire when he wrote a piece for the Daily Mail declaring his disdain for Beyonce’s Lemonade and it’s “political, race-fueled tone.” At this point, we think Piers just needs to log off and chill with those Twitter fingers.
