Loose Women panel slammed for ‘insensitive’ remarks on Chrissy Teigen baby loss

Loose Women caused a storm today when the panel of women shared "insensitive" remarks about Chrissy Teigen's baby loss.

Viewers rushed to Twitter to share their fury with the panel after they discussed Chrissy's heartbreaking post, which revealed that her and husband John Legend had lost their newborn son.

The 34-year-old model uploaded a black and white photograph of her holding her baby Jack with John, 41, stood next to her hospital bed.

While discussing the heartbreak, the panel decided to share their thoughts on whether Chrissy should have uploaded the personal snap or not – with many viewers accusing them of being "insensitive" to Chrissy's pain.

After host Christine Lampard read out Chrissy's message of "deep pain", Nadia Sawalha branded it "heartbreaking" and opened up about her own experience of miscarriage.

Co-star Carol McGiffin went on to to say that while she agreed that it was "so sad and so tragic" she felt "uncomfortable" seeing the pictures.

She said: "I have to say that I did feel a little bit uncomfortable looking at them because I felt like I was intruding in a way.

"I know that she's put them up there and I know that she's had a lot of followers and fans who care deeply for what's going on with her whole pregnancy up until yesterday but I just felt like this was not something I should be witnessing."

Carol continued: "I'm not judging her and saying that she's wrong to do it but I don't know, I just think that it's such a private thing.

"I kind of question if there are some things that you shouldn't have to share on social media.

"I don't know where we're going with all of this."

Jane Moore then went on to share her views, which again left viewers very angry and upset.

Jane asked: "Do you think it's the timing? Because it's very soon after it happened and I suppose that for me is the most 'oh' thing of it.

"I look and I think – she's going through the most painful of experiences and I'm thinking, is she in the right head space of that moment to make that decision to put it out there?"

She added: "Then again, I guess we're all different. Would I put that out there? No I wouldn't."

Many viewers dubbed their comments more "judgemental" than "helpful".

One wrote on Twitter: "Are Loose Women seriously criticising a family after they’ve just lost a baby? Last time I watch this programme."

A second tweeted: "Bashing poor Chrissy Teigen who's just had a miscarriage, so much for the sisterhood , bloody old harpies."

"Women should keep their pregnancy loss private? Why? So they don’t have support and care and love, so they feel shame? Disgusting from Loose Women," wrote another.
