Chrissy Teigen is apologizing for making a joke about Megan Thee Stallion, days after it was reported that the rapper was shot in the foot.
Her tweet was in response to TV and magazine writer Nell Scovell’s play on words where she posted: ‘I have a Charles Manson joke and it kills.’
Teigen followed up with a one-liner of her own that referenced the Hot Girl Summer rapper directly when she wrote: ‘I have a megan thee stallion joke but it needs to be twerked on.’

‘(Before you start, I love her),’ Teigen clarified in a post on Friday.

One day after her tweeting her joke, Teigen took to Twitter to make her public apology.
‘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 sh***y and pointless as the joke was,’ Teigen wrote on Saturday.
‘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.
‘You’ll say someone else wrote this or that I don’t mean it and that’s always the punishment for having said it in the first place so I’ll take it,’ the cookbook author and television personality added.
