Piers Morgan’s Jennifer Aniston-Inspired Column Gets A Bashing From Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen: 1. Piers Morgan: 0.

Piers Morgan made the interesting decision to pen a column on Jennifer Aniston on Wednesday (13 July), and within minutes of its publication, the ‘Good Morning Britain’ presenter found himself being taken to task by Chrissy Teigen.

Now, Piers knows how to rile people up, so his decision to take down Jen’s careful and considered blog on media sexism, and the pregnancy rumours that follow her like a shadow, wasn’t exactly surprising.

In his piece, Piers takes aim at a section of Jennifer’s blog that hones in on “the objectification and scrutiny we put women through”, which she labels “absurd and disturbing”.

In short, Piers reckons this is a view Jennifer isn’t entitled to, as she’s previously posed for pictures which were then digitally altered for magazine covers.

“There’s another reason why the media objectify and scrutinise famous women, and why little girls get confused about beauty and body image,” he writes. “It’s this: female stars like Jennifer Aniston deliberately perpetuate the myth of ‘perfection’ by posing for endless magazine covers which have been airbrushed so much that in some cases the celebrity is virtually unrecognisable.”

The intricacies of this argument are a whole other issue - but while Piers does arguably make a fair point, we’re pretty sure Jennifer’s not responsible for sitting with the laptop and slimming down her own image.

Enter Chrissy Teigen, truth-teller du jour and all-round queen, who swiftly hit ‘send’ on this string of tweets:

Things then escalated quite quickly, and Piers, for reasons that aren’t quite clear, also brought Chrissy’s husband John Legend into it.

Until Teigs promptly blocked him, which should have ended the conversation. Alas, Piers just had to get the last word:

This isn’t the first time model-turned-cookbook writer Chrissy has proven herself as one of Twitter’s finest.

Back in April, Chrissy had the last word after being shamed for going out shortly after having a baby, and she also frequently takes on Donald Trump over his controversial views.
