Piers Morgan Hits Out At Meghan Markle, Calling Her 'Princess Pinocchio'
| Last updated
Piers Morgan has hit out once again at Meghan Markle, branding her 'Princess Pinocchio'.
The TV presenter tweeted an extract from the book Battle of Brothers, in which a royal staffer claimed that Meghan had 'portrayed herself as a victim'.
Accompanying his tweet, Piers wrote: "Wow, I'm shocked. I thought Ms Markle was the Queen of Empathy, Kindness and Compassion?"
In the comments, a fellow user hit back: "Sarcasm like this belittles genuine mental health issues. Not a good look."
Piers then replied: "Ah, so when a mental health campaigner urges me to be 'gotten rid of', that's fine. But if I respond with sarcasm, it's 'not a good look'. Do you teach this woke bulls*** in your classes?"
Another user then said: "But you're not being urged to 'be gotten rid of'. The guy was referencing when ITV got rid of you...which they did! And you go on about virtue signalling!! Give me strength."
But Piers quickly pointed out that he was not sacked from his job, and took the opportunity to have another pop at Meghan.
He said: "ITV didn't get rid of me. I left GMB because I declined to apologise for disbelieving Princess Pinocchio.
"I still work for ITV, as you'll see tomorrow when my Life Stories show with Dame Joan Collins airs at 9pm."
It came ahead of the Duchess' interview on US radio about her new children's book The Bench, which is centred on the relationship between fathers and sons.
Speaking at the time of his departure from Good Morning Britain, Piers defended his right to free speech.
And he recently claimed that he had been asked back.
Speaking to The Sun, the 56-year-old said: "I have had some quite random third-party feelers put out to see if I would consider a return to the show.
"I don't want to say on the record who, but a pretty close third-party.
"As the Americans say, they reached out - there have been approaches to test the water in the wake of their obvious ratings issues.
"It makes me sad to see all the hard work we did to beat the BBC in viewing numbers evaporate so fast.
He continued: "I have no doubt I could take the ratings back to where I left them - but the doubt is, would anyone be allowed to do it that way again?
"I was hired to give very strong, honestly held opinions, which I did. But in the end I was asked to apologise for a genuinely held opinion."
