Sharon Osbourne Erupts On The Talk After Defending Piers Morgan

It was announced on Tuesday that Morgan had left Good Morning Britain after saying he "didn't believe a word" that the Duchess of Sussex said in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Following Morgan's departure from GMB, Mr Wells tweeted: "I can not say how happy I am to learn of the resignation.

If you did, OK", Morgan said in a characteristically combative Tweet on Wednesday morning. "ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add", it said.

Piers Morgan didn't appear on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday morning but he did take some time to speak to the press who were waiting outside his London home.

Morgan has been a vocal critic of Markle ever since she cut off contact with him after she met Prince Harry, and he launched a scathing attack on her following the couple's interview with Oprah Winfrey. Thanks for all the love, and hate.

Speaking to reporters, Morgan called his exit from the show a "temporary hibernation" and doubled down on his views of Meghan.

In the wake of this, Ofcom, a United Kingdom broadcast regulator, said Tuesday it had launched an investigation into the "Good Morning Britain" episode under its "harm and offence rules" after having received more than 41,000 complaints.

The Duchess of Sussex has made a formal complaint to British broadcaster ITV relating to Piers Morgan's comments about her mental health.

ITV "dealing" with Piers Morgan, says network CEO
The 2021 iteration of the clan consists of eight senior working royals who officially represent Her Majesty at events. Executives insisted the dramatic scene was impromptu, not manufactured.

CNN understands that Meghan's complaint to ITV concerned the impact Morgan's comments could have on others and how it could degrade the seriousness of mental health issues. I don't believe nearly anything that comes out of her mouth.

"My real concern was a disbelief frankly... that she went to a senior member of the Royal household and told them she was suicidal and was told she could not have any help because it would be a bad look for the family", Morgan said on the show. Morgan said that cancel culture was not only intolerant but the "antithesis of liberalism" and the "enemy of democracy", almost predicting the controversy that would soon surround him.

Morgan also shared his opinions on Meghan and Prince Harry's claims in the Winfrey interview of racist treatment from the British tabloids and racism within the royal family itself, referencing conversations about "how dark" their son Archie's skin might be.

"According to the British broadcasting regulation rules, the number of viewers who complain matters, but if the person themselves who is the object of the report makes a personal complaint, then it has to be dealt with all the more quickly", Lacey told Today.

But later in the program when Alex Beresford, the weather presenter on the show, criticized Morgan's treatment of Meghan, Morgan walked off the set saying, "Sorry, can't do this".

Morgan responded by storming off the set as he uttered, "Okay, I'm done with this, sorry".

News bulletins in Britain were reporting Meghan's letter was "crucial" to Morgan's removal, he said.

Buckingham Palace issued a statement in response to the Sussexes' revelations on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II, who promised that the topics discussed in the interview have been "taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately".
