The couple aren't here for any Ali slander.
After Chris Brown recently clapped back at Piers Morgan’s claims that boxing legend Muhammad Ali was “more racist” than Donald Trump, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have now got involved.
Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen initially clapped back after Morgan tweeted that he hopes people don't idolise him in the same way they idolised Ali.
I hope people don't make me sound too perfect when I die.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) June 5, 2016
No coats of sugar please.
@johnlegend from what? trolling isn't a job (I've tried)— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 5, 2016
Piers Morgan responded by telling them to read his latest newspaper article. But Teigen hit back with a quick-witted response.
@piersmorgan remember when Bruce Willis didn't know he was dead? It's like that.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 6, 2016
She then continued to slay Morgan in a series of tweets.
I can't tweet him anymore. He has fans somehow and they...they aren't quite "all there", as they say.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 6, 2016

Hi, Piers. I know you're reading this. You unequivocal douche.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 6, 2016
The late, great boxer Muhammad Ali died on 3rd June, from a "septic shock due to unspecified natural causes".
