Piers Morgan Cancels Himself From Award Shortlist

Piers Morgan cancels himself from the Editors of UK Columnist Award shortlist, which he was nominated for alongside others. He said the move was him trying to be a step ahead of what he called ‘deranged wokie’ who might kick off a petition calling for his name to be removed from the nominee list.

He had said this, a few hours after calling for US talk show, to apologise to his friend, Sharon Osbourne for shaming and bullying her to apologise for defending him. He tweeted saying: 

I’ve been nominated in @EditorsUK awards as Columnist of the Year. Obviously, some deranged wokie is now going to make a fuss about this & demand I be cancelled from the shortlist, to make a name for themselves. So before they do, I am cancelling myself. Remove my nomination,” Piers Morgan cancels himself from the award with this statement.

Piers Morgan reaction is coming days after he departed Good Morning Britain in the wake of expressing cynicism towards Markle’s interview with Winfrey, and specifically her claims that she considered suicide amid sustained criticism from the UK press.

Over 41,000 people reportedly wrote the UK media regulator calling for his investigation and sacking from ITV, before he announced his departure.

Piers Morgan quits the show to avoid being sacked by the management, after fans complained to U.K. media regulator Ofcom about his conduct surrounding Meghan Markle on ITV.

Also reports have it that over 200,000 also wrote a petition calling for him to be returned to ITV, but he has sine turned that down, saying his major aim for joining ITV has been met, so he is not interested going back.

Ofcom has since launched an investigation into the show, following his comments about ‘not believing Meghan’ when she told Oprah Winfrey she had previously felt suicidal.

Piers has been under fire since Monday’s episode where he condemned Meghan’s comments in her and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah. During the chat, Meghan claimed that a senior member of the Royal family ‘expressed concern’ over baby Archie’s skin colour while she was pregnant, and said that the pressure of being in the family left her suicidal.

Discussing the revelations, Piers said that he ‘didn’t believe a word that she said. He had tweeted this, calling Meghan a ‘Pinocchio Princess’. 

Lots of people on here want me fired for expressing my opinion on the Pinocchio Princess. If you want to join them, there are various petitions still doing the rounds from the last few times you’ve all tried, and failed, to have me fired for saying what I think,” he said.
