Good Morning Britain‘s Piers Morgan went off yesterday morning on Megan Markle, whom he apparently regards as something of a shifty personality who manipulates and cuts people off at random. (Morgan is one of those she’s cut off, he admitted.) He ranted too strongly as thousands of Twitter complaints were posted in response. Two days ago Harry told Oprah Winfrey that someone in the royal family had voiced a concern about the potential skin shade of their unborn Archie. This struck Morgan as incomplete and incendiary.

This morning Morgan and GMB weatherman Alex Beresford got into a long argument about the merits, and you can just feel the vibe — Beresford believes Morgan is some kind of unconscious toxic racist and Morgan feels this right back, and their argument was as fascinating as the one between Lester Maddox, Jim Brown and Dick Cavett on on 12.18.70.

Beresford: “I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle. 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,” Beresford said. “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.” In response Morgan lost his temper and walked off the set.
