Piers Morgan says Meghan Markle is a 'whiny, hypocritical celeb who exploits victimhood to suppress free speech'
PIERS Morgan has branded Meghan Markle a 'whiny, privileged, hypocritical celebrity who exploits victimhood to suppress free speech'.
The 55-year-old journalist sensationally quit Good Morning Britain on March 9 in the wake of Meghan and Prince Harry's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Piers explained the comments he made on the show in the hours after Meghan and Harry's interview aired, and his reasons for leaving.
He also discussed the aftermath of that decision, including the fact his good friend Sharon Osbourne subsequently quit US show The Talk after she defended him.
Piers wrote: "Sharon Osbourne's quit The Talk, driven out for the crime of defending me, a friend she knows isn't racist, from a co-worker saying I'm racist simply because I disbelieve Meghan Markle.
"It's outrageous, but what's happened to Sharon and me in the past fortnight isn't really about Ms Markle.
"She's just one of many whiny, privileged, hypocritical celebrities who now cynically exploit victimhood to suppress free speech, value their own version of the truth above the actual truth, and seek to cancel anyone that deviates from their woke world view or who dares to challenge the veracity of their inflammatory statements.
"No, it's about a far bigger issue than one delusional Duchess, and that's everyone's right to be free to express our honestly held opinions, forcefully and passionately if we feel like it."
Piers didn't hold back in his article, claiming former GMB co-star Alex Beresford for being the only member of the team not to contact him after his departure.
He also revealed co-host Susanna Reid was "angry" with him for quitting the ITV show and how Internet trolls had threatened to kill him in front of his children over his Meghan rant.
However, he concluded his article by saying: "To be clear: I'm not a victim and I haven't been cancelled.
"In fact, in many ways this has been one of the most exciting and affirmative periods of my life."
