“I expected such disingenuous, self-serving wrecking-ball stuff from a social-climbing Hollywood actress like Ms Markle, but for Harry to publicly shred his family and the Monarchy like this, while Prince Philip was seriously ill in hospital, is so out of character for a man who once bravely served his Queen and country in war,” Morgan stated at the start of his column, including that when he broadcast later on that early morning after viewing the interview he was “angry to the point of boiling over”.

Meghan has actually been dealt with no even worse than other royal bride-to-bes, he declared, “but she’s the first to claim negative press has been motivated by racism, and it’s a very dangerous charge to make with so little to back it up”.
He stated he was informed by his ITV network employers he required to clarify his discuss the air and weatherman Alex Beresford independently informed Morgan he required to comprehend the point of view from a bi-racial individual, so Morgan asked that Beresford be on the program the next early morning to dispute it on-air.

He stated he later on returned on the program to state he still didn’t think what she stated however clarified that mental disorder ought to be taken really seriously.
Morgan stated he was informed he required to apologise or he would need to leave the program and after a fair bit of reflection he chose not to apologise since he stated the capability to disagree with somebody who you do not think is the “essence of freedom of speech”.

He stated he called his ITV manager back to state he would not apologise and they concurred he would leave the program.
One of the very first individuals to share their assistance with him, he composed, was Sharon Osbourne.

A couple of days later on, his book, Wake Up, which knocks cancel culture, soared to be a top bestseller, he composed.

“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,” he composed.
“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.”
