On an episode of Good Morning Britain, co-host and weatherman, Alex Beresford discussed his feelings on Meghan Markle’s mental health and the awful mistreatment she has received at the hands of the tabloids. As Beresford continues to speak, Piers grows more agitated. Finally, Piers says, “I’m done with this, sorry.” In the wake of Piers’ backlash from his behavior towards Meghan Markle, ITV News released a statement announcing that Piers Morgan will be leaving Good Morning Britain.

Beresford brought up Piers’ relationship to Markle and hinted that he had grown obsessed with the Duchess of Sussex. Beresford told Piers that while he has made it abundantly clear on numerous occasions that he does not like Markle, making comments about not believing Meghan’s suicidal ideation and troubling mental health is ludicrous.

Viewers of Good Morning Britain were appalled and disgusted with the way Piers had dismissed Markle’s mental health issues.

Viewers of Piers’ show called out his hypocrisy when he paid tribute to Caroline Flack, a fellow ITV presenter who had died by suicide in 2020. Piers’ show has been in the middle of hosting a mental health campaign and viewers cannot make sense of his failed mission of spreading kindness when he has done nothing but spew hate. Viewers have flooded social media saying that Piers and ITV have not learned anything about Caroline Flack’s passing since they are continuing to allow Piers Morgan to bully Meghan Markle.

Viewers cannot be happier for Piers’ departure. Hopefully, he will take the time to listen and believe those that are suffering.
