Getting booted from Good Morning Britain after criticizing Meghan Markle wasn’t enough to silence Piers Morgan. The controversial British media personality now has a new job and he’s threatening to use it to settle scores.
Morgan is launching a column titled “Uncensored” in UK tabloid The Sun. In a preview article this weekend, he vowed to emerge like biblical figure Lazurus.
“Effectively I was censored at my previous job and told to apologise to Meghan Markle for an honestly held opinion, which obviously I wasn’t going to do,” he says. “Pushy little Princess Pinocchio tried her utmost to cancel me, and she will be in for a very unpleasant surprise when I emerge, like Lazarus, from my den.”
The column in the Rupert Murdoch-owned paper comes after Morgan was ousted from GMB in March 2021, following a heated debate about Meghan and Prince Harry’s sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Morgan said at the time he didn’t believe a word the Duchess of Sussex said, then stormed off the set of the morning show when he was challenged.
Now he’s vowing to speak his mind, take on his critics and battle efforts to cancel him.
“The woke brigade have a narrow, humourless, draconian view, it’s a form of fascism,” he says. “I want to single-handedly lead the charge around the world to end cancel culture.”
Meghan’s fans responded to Morgan on Twitter, saying he’s bitter and jealous because she wasn’t interested in dating him.
“Oh look everyone, Piers is still fragile that Meghan told him no, and then went with the sexier guy who turned out not to be a racist, sexist, misogynistic douche-nozzle,” one person tweeted.
“This fixation @piersmorgan has is becoming very dangerous!” another person tweeted.
“Piers, sit down & keep Meghan’s name out of your mouth. You really need to talk a licensed professional about your obsession with Meghan because it’s unhealthy,” someone else tweeted.
“I honestly haven’t been able to discern whether Piers Morgan is obsessed with Meghan Markle because he has unrequited love for her, or because he wants to BE her? Or, I guess, ya know.. there’s always the possibility that its just plain, old fashioned racism,” someone else wrote.
“Piers Morgan has lost his marbles. He’s promising that his return to media will be ‘very unpleasant’ for Meghan Markle. Dude, she’s married w/two babies and doesn’t want to date you. Move on,” someone else tweeted.
