Piers Morgan says Meghan Markle pressured him to conform
In his recent interview with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, Piers Morgan has made some startling revelations. The former Good Morning Britain host revealed that the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle pressured Morgan through OfCom to conform to her account of how her life was like as part of the British Royal Family. This was after Morgan publicly refused to believe her story.
Meghan Markle pressured Piers Morgan to “conform” to her version of the story, claims the former GMB host
In his first televised appearance since his departure from GMB, Piers Morgan completely unleashed Meghan Markle. While talking to Carlson, Morgan revealed that the Duchess herself wrote a personal complaint to ITV boss, Dame Carolyn McCall.
What I didn’t know and what was a fascinating thing to discover after I left GMB was that Meghan Markle, between the Monday and Tuesday, had made a personal complaint to the boss of ITV, Dame Carolyn McCall. I didn’t know that and I was never told that and I do not know what pressure Meghan was directly putting on but I know she did personally contact her.Piers Morgan to Tucker Carlson
Piers Morgan further revealed that both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had also contacted OfCom. And they did so to pressure Morgan into conforming to their version of the events.
I also know that Meghan and Prince Harry did contact Ofcom which is a Government regulatory body that is designed to regulate what we put out on news shows. I was under attack by Meghan, both directly to my boss and the Government regulatory body… to basically conform to her version of events and I had to believe her.Piers Morgan
Moreover, Morgan alleged that in case of his refusal, he would lose his job and be branded a racist.
I had to believe her otherwise I was a callous racist and I should be condemned and ultimately as it turned out by the end of the day, lose my job.Piers Morgan
Markle should give specific details of her experience, urges Piers
Apart from these startling claims, Morgan again questioned Meghan Markle’s version of the story as described to Oprah. He also wants details, such as the names of the British Royals who passed racist remarks to Markle. Furthermore, he wants the Duchess to reveal who denied her professional help when she felt suicidal among the Royals.
Meghan Markle is making these incendiary claims, you are accusing two people in the Palace of being unspeakably cruel, simply to protect the brand of the Royal Family. If that is true, let us have the names of these people. Let’s go to them and ask them if this is true. We will ask ‘did you tell a suicidal woman who told you she was suicidal that she was not allowed to get help?Piers Morgan
Despite the outrage on social media, Morgan has received support from several people on social media and on news. That includes former Fox host Megyn Kelly, who defended Morgan’s right to a free speech.
