Piers Morgan is ‘ready to retaliate’ against high-profile ‘woke’ celebrities

Piers Morgan has promised that he will not be silenced following his dramatic departure from Good Morning Britain last week.

The outspoken journalist came under-fire following his controversial comments surrounding his comments after Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, revealed that she contemplated suicide during her time as a senior working royal.

He sparked outrage for saying that he did not believe a word that Meghan has said during her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Piers then left the ITV show after being co-anchor for five years, after refusing to apologise for his comments.

Now he has threatened to come for his attackers tweeting: “Memo to all high-profile, insufferably woke, unctuously virtue-signalling, shamefully race-baiting hypocrites: I'm watching, and I will retaliate.”

Some fans praised the star’s tweet with one writing: "What we all have to remember is, Piers Morgan has a challenging interviewing style, and why shouldn’t he? It is his job after all.

"Yes he holds people to account but don’t forget, he also recognises those same individuals when they’ve done well. Crack on @piersmorgan."

However, Piers drew some twitter users’ ire with one commenting “By woke, you mean people who aren’t racist?”

This is not the first time this week he has taken to Twitter to dismiss the “woke brigade”.

He took a swipe at ITV yesterday, tweeting out an excerpt of his book Wake Up alongside the caption “This entry from my book aged like a bottle of corked Liebfraumilch.”

The excerpt read: "Cancel culture is not about whether obvious racists should be given platforms.

"It's about potentially seeing your life and career turned upside down for expressing opinions that the woke brigade don’t like about anything.

"I'm lucky in that although there have been repeated attempts to 'cancel' me, including petitions to have me sacked, I've survived because I have strong-minded employers who refuse to bow to the mob, and I have a powerful TV, newspaper column and social media platform to fight fire with fire."

ITV announced Piers' exit last week, saying: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."
