One ambulance to a burn center for Mr. Morgan, coming right up.

Infamous British troll Piers Morgan tweeted a less-than-humble plea on Sunday as the world mourned the death of boxer Muhammad Ali.

The backlash was instantaneous, as it is to so many of Morgan's tweets. John Legend was just one of the celebrities to weigh in.
But it was Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen who really took Morgan to task.
Always up for a fight, Morgan fired back.
But Teigen was characteristically non-plussed by Morgan’s retorts.
Teigen, whose other Twitter pursuits of late involve lobbying for better bitmoji features and getting husband John Legend recognition for his on-point tux game, clearly has bigger fish to fry.

But seriously, Piers. Ya burnt!

Muhammad Ali was an amazing athlete—but don't forget about his activism
Muhammad Ali was undoubtedly one of the world's best athletes. At the age of 22 in 1964, the boxer defeated heavyweight champion Sonny Liston in a surprising upset that would propel him to superstardom. He went on to win the title of world heavyweight champion twice more in 1974 and 1979. The legend also won the gold medal in the light heavyweight division at the 1960 Rome Summer Olympics.
