Chrissy Teigen attacked Piers Morgan on social media after the former talk show host said that Muhammad Ali has said more racist things than Donald Trump.

On Monday, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model got into a war of words with Morgan on Twitter after he wrote an article in the Daily Mail comparing Ali’s comments about whites, versus Trump’s about Muslims. “Muhammad Ali was a racist who repented,” Morgan wrote. “Trump isn’t a racist, but he too needs to sing a more tolerant tune.”


Teigen and her husband John Legend then took to Twitter to share their displeasure with the article. The model continued when Legend backed off.
