For someone who insists he’s being cancelled, Piers Morgan is still getting his message across just fine.
The now-former Good Morning Britain host has shared a hand-written message, that angrily explains what happened.
In the note, scrawled in marker pen, he insists it is the third time he has lost a job for “standing his ground”.
The letter reads: “Hi everyone. To all my supporters, I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks. (To all my haters, whatever.)
“It has been an extraordinary week for me, for Britain, for our monarchy and for our future.
“Those of you that know me well enough know that, despite my many faults, I’m always willing to stand my ground for the things that I think matter most.
“My fervent opposition to the Iraq War led to my demise from the Daily Mirror. My outspoken views on the insanity of American gun laws led to the end of my time at CNN.
“And now I’ve lost my job at Good Morning Britain because I chose not to apologise for disbelieving Meghan Markle’s claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“However, I do believe the defence of free speech and the right to express honestly held opinions, is the most important issue of my career, and the most important issue in British society.”
“Freedom Of Expression”
Always finding time for a cheeky plug, Piers then urged his followers to buy his book: “It’s less than a tenner.
“I didn’t write it to make more money but because the very foundations of democracy, built upon freedom of expression, freedom of thought and freedom of speech, are under attack like never before and must be defended.
“It is a privilege to live in a democracy, and it is a privilege to be British. As I said when I left GMB, the right to free speech is a hill worth dying on. So, have a read, and if you like it, give it to one of your friends.
“This is not simply an act of defiance, but a commitment to our collective futures.”
The host then signed off: “Kind regards, Piers.”
He quit the show after six years, after more than 41,000 complaints were received by OFCOM.
In the sensational interview with Oprah, Meghan Markle had said she felt suicidal.
The morning after the show aired, Piers claimed he didn’t believe Meghan.
He then stormed off set the following day, when co-host Alex Beresford criticised his comments.
Now, Morgan’s son says Piers is being sent death threats by teenagers.
Mental health charity Mind and many other celebrities also slammed his remarks on the show.
Speculation is rife about what Piers will do next, with many predicting a move to GB News.
Something tells us we haven’t heard the last of Piers Morgan.
