This could get UGLY
I wonder who's right, here.
Piers Morgan on Wednesday doubled down on his comments about Meghan Markle that led to his departure from “Good Morning Britain” — while blasting the Duchess of Sussex for her “contemptible” Oprah interview.
Morgan, 55, reiterated that hestill doesn’t believe Markle, 39, was genuinein the tell-all special in which she revealed her mental health struggles behind palace walls,the Sun reported.
“I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queenat a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and frankly contemptible,” Morgan told reporters outside his home in London.
The famed host said he stepped down from his morning TV gig Tuesday after having a “good chat” with network ITV.
“We agreed to disagree,” he said.
“I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion,” the outspoken anchor added. “If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that’s entirely their right.”
“If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out with in that interview, so be it,” he continued.
Remember that annoying British guy PIERS MORGAN? Well, he QUIT his job at a show called "Good Morning Britain", after one of his co-hosts BERATED him over Meghan Markle.
Piers has never been quiet about his dislike for Meghan . . . and after the interview aired on Sunday, he went on a rant about not believing a thing she said.
On yesterday's show, his co-host ALEX BERESFORD went off on him, and said he just has it out for Meghan because she "cut him off." Piers got SUPER TRIGGERED by that and stormed off the set. (Here's video.)
Later in the day, the network said Piers decided to leave the show, and they were cool with that.
The reason Piers was so wounded by Beresford is because Meghan really DID cut him off.
Piers was a big fan of Meghan's show "Suits" back in the day, and he struck up a friendship with her on Twitter. One time, Meghan came to London to watch SERENA WILLIAMS play at Wimbledon, so she and Piers got together at a pub.
After a few drinks and some conversation, Piers put her into an Uber and she headed off to a party . . . where she met Prince Harry for the first time. And Piers NEVER HEARD FROM HER AGAIN.
And apparently, he's always held a grudge.
