Piers Morgan give up Good Morning Britain final week after storming off the set, and the one-time Queen of the Seven Kingdoms appears fairly proud of it.
Last week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey the place they talked about Meghan’s mistreatment by the hands of the British Royal Family, laying out why they left. During the interview, which you’ll be able to watch on CBS.com, Meghan and Harry get into the household’s lack of curiosity in addressing Meghan’s psychological well being struggles, inappropriate questions concerning the race of her child, failure to guard them from the famously intrusive British tabloids, and extra.
Predictably, the interview impressed rather a lot of intense reactions each sympathetic and unsympathetic. Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan was positively within the latter camp, saying on air he didn’t imagine Markle when she talked about her failing psychological well being particularly. Although he later clarified that he takes psychological well being points and suicide severely, his phrases resulted in an enormous backlash, with over 41,000 folks submitting complaints with ITV. There was additionally the incident the place Morgan walked off his personal present when cohost Alex Beresford identified that Morgan’s well-established dislike for Markle had much less to do with something substantial and extra along with her not pursuing a friendship with him a couple of years again.
From there, ITV gave Morgan a couple of choices: apologize, get fired, or give up. He selected to give up, which has set off a brand new spherical of intense reactions.
One of them comes from Game of Thrones veteran Lena Headey, who’s clearly fairly jazzed concerning the growth, flipping Morgan the chicken in an Instagram video:
Piers Morgan, you’ve been known as out, mate, on some true, true colours. Maybe we will pop in and do an episode of your podcast you might be doing from a shed. Not that there’s something flawed with doing a podcast from a shed however I feel you’ll contemplate your individual fall from grace far worse than any else.
Morgan is unquestionably a polarizing determine along with his fair proportion of scandals, from telephone hacking accusations to allegations of racism, misogyny and transphobia to an amazing many feuds. He’s principally an expert troll, and I’m not shocked to see folks indulging in slightly schadenfreude now that he’s vacated his spot on Good Morning Britain.
That stated, I’m certain Morgan will likely be again in some type or one other quickly sufficient. More intense reactions are incoming.
