Speaking on talk show The View as a panelist, Meghan, 36, got involved with a discussion about the fact that model Chrissy Teigan, 35, had quit Twitter due to its “negativity.”

Asked for her opinion, Meghan got candid about her experience of social media and revealed she receives vile abuse on an almost daily basis. 

The journalist regularly comes under fire because of her conservative views on topics such as gun control and anti-abortion. 

Discussing how her opinions often get trolled on Twitter, the television personality revealed that when people take offense to her thoughts they quickly get nasty and personal.

She said: “I say things that people don’t wanna hear and if they disagree with me it automatically gets personal about how fat I am, I’m a disgusting white woman of privilege, I only get anywhere because of my dad.

“Everything you guys have said is not anything I haven’t thought and felt insecure about for my whole life.”

Fighting back tears, Meghan continued: “It has 100 per cent impacted my mental health. I have suffered from depression because of things people have done to me on social media.

“We are living in an absolutely toxic time.”

The mom-of-one then recalled, “a day after my dad died a picture went viral of someone putting a glock gun at my head at a picture of me crying over my dad’s casket.”

Chrissy Teigen shocked fans earlier this week when she QUIT Twitter saying the the platform “doesn’t serve her any longer.”

The 35-year-old also claimed she’s not the “clap back girl” she’s portrayed to be.

The model explained her decision to leave Twitter in a series on tweets on Wednesday, which began: “Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends.

“But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something.”

Chrissy continued: “My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not.”

The thread concluded: “My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!”

She deleted her account shortly after the announcement.
