In news just in, Piers Morgan has decided to “leave” Good Morning Britain after shocking comments about Meghan Markle.
ITV’s statement below…
Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.
ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.
The timing of the “decision” will certainly lead many to wonder just how much of Morgan’s decision the move actually was.
For, today it was announced that UK TV regulator Ofcom received over 41,000 complaints about the comments he made about Markle’s revelations about feeling suicidal in a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Reacting to the Duchess’ truth, Morgan told shocked viewers:
“I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report.”
The sum of complaints is more than any other UK broadcast in 15 years.
It also follows an explosive week, during which Morgan went viral after a verbal lashing from Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu. He also made headlines today after walking off GMB following critique from Alex Beresford.
Piers Morgan, a wealthy white privileged man believes the reputation of “our” monarch is more important than the wellbeing & racial discrimination of Meghan plus Archie.
