Thomas Markle is a particularly controversial character in the media these days, best known for giving “exclusive” interviews about his royal daughter, Meghan Markle. Of course, many of the stories revolve around how unhappy he thinks she is, how much he disapproves of her new family, and how left out he feels since his daughter seems to have minimized contact with him. So, yeah, controversial.
Markle has supposedly cut contact with him, and can you blame her? It’s hard not to sympathize with the Duchess of Sussex, especially with the exhausting about of interviews her father has made public. Anyone with any amount of fame knows what it’s like to have their life picked apart by the media, and even more so when someone in their life take the opportunity to air their dirty laundry to the public. Like Chrissy Teigen, queen of social media and all things relatable.
Teigen took to Twitter to express her dislike of Thomas Markle and her disapproval of how he’s handling the situation, going so far as to say, “this guy sucks.”

Of course, Teigen’s critique of Thomas went viral, with plenty of people criticizing the new royal’s father for how he’s handled the media buzz — and for how he’s treated his daughter, who seems to want nothing but privacy.
Naturally, though, Teigen’s own critique was met with another from Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, who has also taken to airing her grievances with the royal to the media. Samantha complained on her (private) social media account about the tweet, despite the fact that there was no way Teigen would see the comment.
Basically, everyone’s mad at everyone, per usual. Teigen hasn’t acknowledged Samantha’s tweet, though I’m not holding my breath waiting for a response. Even if she does notice the tweet (unlikely), there are just some things in life that aren’t worth the trouble.
