In the week that preceded the Oprah Winfrey interview with Harry and Meghan (the exiled Duke & Duchess of Sussex), professional whinge-bag Piers Morgan Tweeted about the Suits actress ‘at least 57 times’. Obsession is often a one-way street, and in trying to score points against the former Royal, the TV host has only succeeded in netting an own-goal.
But with him being such a vehement Arsenal fan, we’re sure Morgan is used to humiliation by now…
Morgan’s compulsive interest in Meghan is nothing short of bizarre. He has been one of the most vociferous critics of the 39-year-old – and the broadcaster rubbed his hands gleefully last week when allegations of bullying were levelled against the outgoing princess. Sensing an opportunity to spout his bile again, Piers went into battle on Monday morning.
Unfortunately for him, he was up against an educated queen: Dr. Shola Mos-Shogamimu – lawyer, solicitor, author, and Cambridge Graduate – brought a wealth of knowledge to the table in her showdown with the veteran journalist.
Well, we call him a journalist – but that’s only because we haven’t got a particular word for ‘person who publishes fake, shit-stirring photos of British troops‘ yet. It seems like the sort of thing German linguists would have sorted by now…
Dr. Shola, as she likes to call herself, eviscerated the competition. During an appearance on ITV’s flagship breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, the legal professional took the six-foot slab of gammon to school, turning the tables on an abrasive line of questioning set out by Piers Morgan:
Thank god for intelligent, articulate women like Dr Shola who have what it takes to criticise the professional shit stirring of Piers Morgan and the way he uses his platform, leaving him left with with no reply other than “leave my queen alone!” pic.twitter.com/MKpxfHSRhc— Harrison Brocklehurst (@harrisonjbrock) March 8, 2021
As fun as these exchanges are on the surface, Morgan’s behaviour is symptomatic of something much more serious. Meghan spoke in the big interview about how suicidal she felt, as a result of intense negative media coverage. The ITV anchor is front-row centre whenever there’s an orchestrated pile-on for the Duchess…
Had the one-time Royal decided to end her life, Piers Morgan would be as complicit as anyone in her death. Undeniably, blood would have been on his hands. But the unrepentant rent-a-gob isn’t backing down anytime soon, and the fact he’s fixated on Meghan – rather than the disturbing activities of Prince Andrew – speaks volumes about his character.
Despite his barrage of Tweets, Meghan is yet to acknowledge Morgan’s complaints. And it’s killing him inside.
