Piers Morgan has spent 4 years trashing Meghan Markle relentlessly, but couldn’t handle 10 seconds of being called out for it, so he quit his job

The saying “You sure can dish it out, but you can’t take it” was basically created with fragile white men in mind. Piers Morgan, Captain of the SOS Fragility Express, almost shattered completely this morning when a colleague of his dared to confront him about his consistent cruelty regarding Meghan Markle. Particularly following Sunday’s explosive Oprah interview. Now? He’s out of a job.

The poor little Precious Moments™ figurine stormed off the set of his own show, Good Morning Britain when co-star Alex Beresford called Morgan out for his mouth-frothing obsession with shitting on Meghan Markle (we’ll get to the reason behind his obsession in a moment). Hours later, it was announced that he’s quit the show. Amazing how Meghan endures years of his abuse but all it took was a minute or two of being called out himself and Morgan melted.

“I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle,” Beresford said to Morgan earlier today. “You’ve made it so clear a number of times on this program, and I understand that you had a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off. Has she said anything about you after she cut you off? She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. And yet you continue to trash her.”

Following Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah on Sunday, Morgan immediately launched into the typical anti-Meghan rhetoric of racist Brits. On Monday’s Good Morning Britain, he said he didn’t “believe a word” Meghan said about asking for help regarding her mental health and suicidal ideations.

If that wasn’t abhorrent and dangerous enough, Morgan also called her “Princess Pinocchio” in a later tweet. His actions didn’t sit well with some of his co-stars, which is why Beresford called him out this morning.

After being confronted with his own words, Morgan huffily said he “can’t do this” and stormed off the set of his own show before flouncing entirely.

It’s worth noting that Piers Morgan, who has been an active participant in the racist media abuse that drove Meghan Markle to contemplate suicide after more than three years of enduring it, could not sit through two minutes of being confronted about his own abhorrent behavior.

Of course, Twitter was only too happy to wave bye-bye to little Piers.

So why does Piers Morgan seem to have it out for Meghan so badly? Why has he spent the better part of the last four years trying to destroy her credibility while elevating the voices of racist royalists and her own father, who continues to betray her at every turn for a quick buck from the tabloids?

I’m glad you asked! It’s racism, of course. No question. But for him in particular, there’s more to it: he caught feelings for her that she didn’t return. Most people probably don’t know that Morgan truly believes with every fiber of his being that Meghan Markle was going to date him if Prince Harry didn’t beat him to it.

Here, allow him to explain it himself:

Oh, to have the confidence and delusion of a straight, white man! Whew. WHEW.

And because Meghan Markle, one of the most beautiful, intelligent, warm, motivated women to ever exist, apparently rejected him romantically, he has spent years publicly harassing her and trying to destroy her with his vitriol.

He has no problem dishing it out, clearly. But when the tables are turned, Piers Morgan wilts faster than a head of lettuce on a humid August afternoon. Good riddance, TBH.
