Chrissy Teigen Slams Thomas Markle For "Embarrassing" His Daughter, The Duchess Of Sussex

Thomas Markle, the estranged father of the Duchess of Sussex, has been in the news lately for his far-from-savory comments about the royal family. In a new interview granted to The Mail on Sunday, the retired lighting director insisted that his daughter and the Palace are cutting him off completely.
Markle says that the phone numbers he used to contact the Duchess were no longer working. He claims that the royals are punishing him for the photo session he granted to the press before the royal wedding – an incident that caused a lot of drama.
Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter.
In the meantime, Chrissy Teigen seems far from pleased at the new accusations Markle raised. In a swift response to the new interview, she took to Twitter with a post of her own, calling out Markle for “embarrassing” his daughter.
this guy...this guy sucks. what is wrong with him? let your daughter be happy, please. this is embarrassing. pic.twitter.com/FADsBT5sfX— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 28, 2018
Other commentators on social media are also speaking out against Markle. Some insist that a lot of information Markle is spreading is false, and find it hard reconciling his apologies with statements he made in the past about his daughter.
As long as the press keeps giving him attention and paying him for these interviews, he isn’t going to stop. For some reason that family can’t see that everything they’re doing is just making it worse. No wonder she’s cut them all off.— Alyssa Campanella (@AlyssCampanella) July 28, 2018
Him saying he won't stop, and she would be nothing without him is awful, I can't imagine how - even if they aren't particularly close - she must be feeling to hear him publicly criticise her, her mother and her husband.— B... (@SimplyBeckyyy) July 28, 2018
Among other things, Markle has expressed his concerns about the Duchess shutting him out of her life and fears he may never get to meet his grandchildren. In the meantime, the Duchess continues to enjoy a healthy relationship with her mother, Doria Ragland.
Did he ever think that maybe it’s his fault she wants nothing to do with him? He’s made it quite clear the kind of man he is, and I would cut him off as well.— Becky Cooley (@beckyv25) July 28, 2018
Oh I think he is well aware he is humiliating her and that humiliation is being used as a weapon for cutting him off which his behavior absolutely warrants. That 'family' is awful.— Aimee S (@xb_xs) July 29, 2018
Meghan’s sister got it from somewhere. I honestly don’t think she was that close with them. And you look at her and see how very welcoming and loving she is and she’s not that way to that side of the family, so something’s up.— Bass Grrrl 🎸 (@pookerella) July 29, 2018
Markle bailed on attending the royal wedding at the last minute, a move that was quite upsetting to many Britons. Neither the Duchess nor any member of the royal family has made a statement about Thomas Markle or his new accusations.
