Yesterday, the internet and women everywhere applauded Jennifer Aniston for the epic Huffington Post essay (opens in new tab) she wrote lashing out at the tabloid media's portrayal of women. So it should come as a surprise to virtually no one that today, dependable internet troll Piers Morgan had something misogynistic to say about Aniston's piece—and Chrissy Teigen is having none of it.

Morgan wrote his own response to Aniston's essay on the Daily Mail (opens in new tab), claiming that the actress shouldn't be writing about the objectification of women since she poses for photos that are airbrushed by magazines. Teigen, Queen of Twitter Comebacks (opens in new tab), came to the actress' defense and publicly called out Morgan this morning for his comments.

"Saw your piece on Jennifer Aniston. Why do you ALWAYS take the road of being the piece of shit asshole?" Teigen tweeted at Morgan, starting a back-and-forth argument between the two.

Unsurprisingly, Morgan replied to Teigen's tweets in his signature mansplaining tone, calling the model's remarks a "diva tantrum."

Teigen then proceeded to put him fully on-blast, even thwarting Morgan's attempt to compliment her husband John Legend as a "genius."

Someone please grab a chair for Morgan to take a seat in; another Twitter win for Teigen in the books.
