Chrissy Teigen has apologised for joking about Megan Thee Stallion as the rapper recovers from gunshot wounds.
The Bring The Funny host made the hitmaker the subject of a quip online, as she joined a viral joke circulating on Twitter, writing, “I have a megan thee stallion joke but it needs to be twerked on (sic).”
The wordplay trend started when Nell Scovell tweeted, “I have a Charles Manson joke and it kills.”
After the tweet sparked derision from fans, Chrissy followed up by saying, “Before u start, I love her,” later adding, “I’ll delete because you guys are sooooo f**king annoying. Just unfollow me you absolute tools (sic).”
Chrissy then returned to the site on Saturday to further retract her words, writing: "I used the play on words joke with a celeb and something their known for with meg and twerking and I should have known that it is just not the right time especially for something so dumb and s**tty and pointless as the joke was (sic)."
Continuing her apology, she said the tweet was not intended to be a comment on Megan's injury: "Making anyone feel reminded of a terrible time or letting you guys down sucks more than anything to me so I am sorry to Megan and anyone who thought this was about the incident at all."
Megan was hospitalised after police found her in a car with Tory Lanez following a party incident in Hollywood earlier this month, with
TMZ sources revealing the Hot Girl Summer star underwent surgery on her foot.
