Chrissy Teigen has been a Twitter ally for Meghan Markle, who recently shared she experienced a miscarriage back in July.
Meghan Markle publicly shared that she had a miscarriage in a New York Times op-ed on Wednesday and not everyone is extending their heartfelt sympathy.
You may remember that Chrissy Teigen revealed her own miscarriage on Instagram in September, which many shamed her for. How dare a celebrity share something so personal? So when a Twitter user came after Markle for the same reason, Teigen jumped in.
“Award for today’s absolute piece of s–t goes to… Congratulations, piece of s–t.”
Teigen deleted the tweet, writing, “Sorry forgot I’m trying to be nicer lol.” She went on to explain why she’s not on social media as much these days:
“I’m not tweeting much because I’m honestly in a bit of a grief depression hole,” Teigen wrote Wednesday. “Do not worry as I have so much help around me to get better and I’ll be fixed soon.”

Markle explained in her op-ed that she had a reason for sharing her experience, writing that it’s a step toward healing.
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by a few. We have learned that when people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief often becomes lighter — for all of us.”
A source exclusively told US Weekly on Wednesday that royal family members are “deeply saddened” by her and Harry’s miscarriage and that Prince Charles has been especially helpful. “[He] regularly checks in on them.”
As USA Today notes, other British royals also have suffered terrible pregnancy losses. In 2001, the queen’s daughter-in-law, Sophie Countess of Wessex, suffered a life-threatening ectopic pregnancy and required hours of surgery to terminate the pregnancy.
