LONDON (AP) – British TV host Pierce Morgan on Tuesday shut down “Good Morning Britain” after making controversial comments about Megan following a bomb interview about the royal family.
An earlier UK media watchdog said earlier on Tuesday it was launching an investigation into the show’s damages and crime following more than 41,000 complaints about Morgan’s comments about the Duchess of Sussex.
Morgan’s departure was announced shortly after the announcement of Buckingham Palace, which said that allegations of racism in an interview given by Prince Harry Օ Megan to Oprah Winfrey were “disturbing”.
In an interview shown Monday night in the United States and Monday night in the United Kingdom, Megan spoke of how she “no longer wants to be alive” as she struggled to enter the monarchy. He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture and that his confession had been obtained through torture and that his confession had been obtained through torture.
“Sorry, I do not believe what he said,” Morgan, 55, told Good Morning Britain on Monday during a discussion of Meghan’s revelations.
“I would not believe him if he read the weather report to me,” he said, adding that the duchess had “attacked” the royal family.
It was criticized by many, including the mental health charity Mind, which said it was frustrated and worried about Morgan’s comments, not believing Megan had suicidal thoughts.
“It is very possible that when people reach out for help or share their experiences of poor mental health, they are treated with dignity, respect and compassion,” said the charity.
In Tuesday’s episode, Morgan made the comments the day before, stressing that he believed that mental illness and suicide were topics that should be taken “extremely seriously.” But he insisted that he had “serious concerns about the veracity of what Meghan said.”
She then broke into the program as weather presenter Alex Beresford criticized her attitude towards Megan. When Morgan left, he said: “I’m done.”
ITV, which produces “Good Morning Britain”, said on Tuesday. After discussions with ITV, Pierce Morgan decided that now was the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has made this decision, “there is nothing else to add.”
Morgan was a former judge on America’s Got Talent, and in 2011 he replaced Larry King’s primetime slot on CNN with his own talk show, which was canceled in 2014 after poor ratings. Former editor of the tabloid newspaper, he joined Bari Luys Brittany in 2015.
