• Chrissy Teigen called on critics of Meghan Markle to "stop it"
  • The "Lip Sync Battle" host was concerned that the media attacks may put Markle's pregnancy at risk
  • Twitter users had mixed reactions to Teigen's tweet

Chrissy Teigen is speaking out against Meghan Markle's critics and calling out tabloids for potentially putting her pregnancy at risk ahead of the duchess' tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The "Lip Sync Battle" host took to Twitter Friday to share her two cents on the ongoing media attacks toward her former "Deal or No Deal" co-star, who is pregnant with her second child with Prince Harry after a miscarriage last year.

"This meghan markle s—t is hitting too close to home for me," Teigen tweeted. "These people won’t stop until she miscarries. f—king stop."

This comes amid a report from the U.K. newspaper The Times claiming that the Duchess of Sussex bullied royal staffers. The "bullying" accusations surfaced in the lead-up to her and Prince Harry's sit-down interview with Winfrey in which they are expected to share details about their decision to step away from the royal family last year.

A number of Teigen's followers chimed in, agreeing with her statement and defending Markle.

"It’s disgusting and half of it is because she’s black. I haven’t seen a SINGLE thing she’s done wrong - she’s being attacked because she’s literally the first black American to marry a prince. Disgusting and unwarranted," one commented.

"Oh God I’m sorry, the stress of bullying, horrible racist people," Rosanna Arquette tweeted, while a third user added, "You are so correct! Keep speaking the truth, Chrissy

However, some netizens believe the alleged bullying claims, while others think Markle should have expected this situation when she chose to do the tell-all interview and perhaps should have waited until she had given birth to her second child.

"I believe she initiated it with the interview. There are staff that have come forward. Don’t blame the victim and assume it’s not true. She was in a position of power over them and if she abused it, she should be held accountable," one wrote.

"A lot of people here are not saying ‘dont do it at all’. They are saying, in response to the miscarriage comment, ‘dont do it when pregnant’. That was her choice, to do it while pregnant. She chose to do it atm. & They knew (bc of experience) this would go south very fast & ugly," a second user added.

"I hope her pregnancy is okay, but didn't they choose this interview? They had to realize there'd be activity surrounding it," a third netizen wrote.

Earlier this week, Buckingham Palace announced that it is conducting an official investigation into bullying accusations. A rep for Markle then said in a statement that "the Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character."

Meanwhile, Teigen, who met Markle in 2007 when they were both models on "Deal or No Deal," also previously praised the duchess in an interview.

"I am especially a fan of Meghan," she told Daily Mail in November 2018. "I was on Deal or No Deal with her and she was lovely. Now everyone asks me what she was like and I say, ‘Sorry, no dirt. She’s gorgeous.'"
