The queen of clap-backs! Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter on Wednesday, July 13, to put Piers Morgan in his place after he wrote a Daily Mail column criticizing Jennifer Aniston’s recent op-ed about the way women are portrayed by the media.

In his piece, Morgan, 51, argued that Aniston, 47, shouldn’t be writing about the “absurd and disturbing” objectification of women since she poses for photos that are digitally airbrushed for magazines.

“There’s another reason why the media objectify and scrutinize famous women, and why little girls get confused about beauty and body image,” the British TV personality wrote on Wednesday. “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 unrecognizable.”

Morgan’s critique of the Friends alum’s essay — which was published by the Huffington Post on Tuesday, July 12 — didn’t sit well with Teigen, 30, who swiftly fired off a string of tweets aimed at the opinionated U.K. native.

“@piersmorgan saw your piece on Jennifer Aniston. Why do you ALWAYS take the road of being the piece of s–t a–hole?” the outspoken model wrote. “particularly with women and people of color. tell me it's just for clicks?? Please tell me you aren't TRULY this vile.”

“unfortunately, I read it,” the mom of one continued of Morgan’s column. “I'm not so much a diva as I am a person who slows down at car crashes, apparently.”

Morgan responded by writing, “No, my little bundle of hypocrisy, YOU'RE using ME for clickbait. Now hush before your sanctimonious spleen bursts.”

Not one to step away from a heated Twitter exchange, Teigen immediately fired back: “@piersmorgan you're right. It's ME who writes weekly columns demeaning and criticizing women and black people. All me. Goodbye, King troll.”

As Teigen’s Twitter tirade raged on, Morgan made an attempt to recover from the Cravings author’s cutting remarks by professing his love for her husband, John Legend: “Says the world's biggest, lamest 'celebrity' troll. Your husband's a genius so I forgive your childish impudence.”

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit stunner was quick to let Morgan know that Legend, 37, isn’t a fan of him: “@piersmorgan my husband thinks you are one of the most misogynistic, condescending morons on the planet but thank you.”

More insults ensued. Morgan suggested that Legend has “problems” since he agreed to marry Teigen, and the Lip Sync Battle cohost told the former America’s Got Talent judge that his comments are only “proving [her] point” further.

Then Morgan threatened to write his next piece about Teigen. “Might have to do my next @DailyMail column on @chrissyteigen,” he teased. “just to REALLY annoy her.”

This isn’t the first time Teigen has taken Morgan to task. Back in June, following the death of Muhammad Ali, she and Legend sparred with Morgan over his racially charged tweet comparing the late boxing legend to Donald Trump.

“Muhammad Ali said far more inflammatory/racist things about white people than Donald Trump ever has about Muslims. #fact,” the London resident wrote. “Why sugar-coat what Ali said or stood for? He never did that to himself, or when speaking to others. I hope people don’t make me sound too perfect when I die. No coats of sugar please.”

The “All of Me” crooner came across Morgan’s tweets and responded, “You could test us by announcing your retirement,” to which Teigen added, “From what? Trolling isn’t a job (I’ve tried).”
