Piers Morgan, the former British TV presenter, said Meghan Markle has a “very unpleasant surprise” coming when he starts a regular newspaper column after losing his TV job last year for making sinister comments – about Meghan Markle.
Morgan vowed in comments Friday in Rupert Murdoch’s The Sun that he will start a regular column next week, titled “Uncensored.”
Morgan left as co-host of the popular “Good Morning Britain” nine months ago after storming the set when faced with his many attacks on Markle.
He was then angry about Markle and her husband Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey about the racism they faced in the royal family, and about Markle’s struggle with suicidal thoughts.
Morgan criticized the interview on “Good Morning Britain” as a “filth” of the monarchy, and called Markle a liar.
“I can’t believe a word you’re saying,” he shouted into the air. “I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report, and the fact that she launched this attack against our royal family, I think is despicable.”
He walked off the set the next day when he was confronted by teammate Alex Beresford, who criticized him as “diabolical”. Beresford also called for Morgan’s peculiar fixation by repeatedly attacking Markle, even though the two had previously been friendly. They even went out for drinks before Markle met Prince Harry, Morgan wrote.
“I was effectively censored at my previous job and was asked to apologize to Meghan Markle for an honest opinion, which of course I won’t,” Morgan noted in The Sun.
He added: “It was a very painful experience at Good Morning Britain but I am now working somewhere where I am free to express my opinions.”
Morgan alleged that Markle exerted influence to get him fired from GMP. But his comments were widely disparaged, particularly by mental health organizations and experts who condemned Morgan’s arrogant exclusion of Markle’s revelations about her mental health struggles amid the stress of her life in Britain.
Morgan has since criticized gymnast Simone Biles after struggling with her mental health at the last Olympics. Are mental health issues now the preferred excuse for any poor performance in elite sport? What a joke, he tweeted.
Morgan noted that he aims to continue attacking Markle, as well as the “vigilance culture,” in which people strive to be sensitive to things like racial, sexual and national differences, which he called “a form of fascism.”
The Sun noted that Morgan is starting his new job after six months spent with “long COVID” at his Beverly Hills home.
