Chrissy Teigen Says the Recent Meghan Markle Drama Is Hitting "Too Close to Home" for Her

😞

It kinda goes without saying, but this week has been a rather stressful one for Meghan Markle. Ahead of Meghan and Prince Harry's Oprah tell-all interview (opens in new tab)—which is airing this Sunday—it came out that one of Meghan's former advisors filed a bullying complaint against her while she was living at Kensington Palace (opens in new tab). It's been a flurry of negative attention for Meghan ever since, and Chrissy Teigen (who has vocalized her support for Meghan in the past (opens in new tab)) wants people to knock it off.

On Twitter, Chrissy wrote: "this Meghan Markle shit is hitting too close to home for me. These people won’t stop until she miscarries. Fucking stop it."

Chrissy is, unfortunately, no stranger to insensitive trolling—after Chrissy posted intimate pictures of herself just minutes after the loss of her son, Jack (opens in new tab), she received a ton of hate for it with her critics saying she should have kept the moment to herself. In a personal essay posted to Medium (opens in new tab)Chrissy spoke about the backlash she experienced (opens in new tab) and said:

"I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos. How little I care that it’s something you wouldn’t have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me."

Recently, Meghan revealed she too has experienced losing a pregnancy in an op-ed for the New York Times (opens in new tab)Meghan detailed what happened (opens in new tab) on that sad day:

"It was a July morning that began as ordinarily as any other day: Make breakfast. Feed the dogs. Take vitamins. Find that missing sock. Pick up the rogue crayon that rolled under the table. Throw my hair in a ponytail before getting my son from his crib. After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right. I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second."

PSA to all of Meghan and Chrissy's haters: Please let these women live (and share) their truth in peace. Thanks.
