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!
