  • Chrissy Teigen apologized after making a joke about rapper Megan Thee Stallion on Twitter.

  • Chrissy called the joke "pointless" after receiving criticism from her followers.

Chrissy Teigen is in hot water (again...) after making a bad joke about rapper Megan Thee Stallion, who is currently recovering from a gunshot wound. Despite Chrissy's unique sense of humor, it might not be the right time to poke fun at Megan.

The drama started when Chrissy retweeted TV writer Nell Scovell's tweet: "I have a Charles Manson joke and it kills." In a similar vein, she tweeted "I have a megan thee stallion joke but it needs to be twerked on." The post has since been deleted, but not before it was captured and shared by Twitter users. She tweeted a few follow-up statements and then wrote an apology.

Some of Chrissy's followers considered the joke to be insensitive considering Megan's condition. Even though it wasn't mean-spirited, fans thought it wasn't appropriate and in the end, Chrissy agreed.

"I used the play on words joke with a celeb and something their known for with meg and twerking and I should have known that it is just not the right time especially for something so dumb and sh*tty and pointless as the joke was," she tweeted. "Making anyone feel reminded of a terrible time or letting you guys down sucks more than anything to me so I am sorry to Megan and anyone who thought this was about the incident at all. You'll say someone else wrote this or that I don't mean it and that's always the punishment for having said it in the first place so I'll take it."

As far as apologies go, that's a pretty good one.
