The television personality, 56, made headlines about a month ago when he offered intense criticism of Markle and Principe Harry‘s claims made against the royal family in their tell-all interview con Oprah Winfrey.
The fallout from his criticism included him storming off the set of “Buenos Días Gran Bretaña” after being called out for his constantly negative view of the Duchess before it was announced that he would not return to the daytime program.
Él era defended online by Sharon Osbourne, who subsequently exited “La conversación” after receiving criticism for ultimately enabling his comments, which many have deemed racist.
As the drama surrounding the incident winds down, Morgan has revealed what he would say to Markle, 39, should they speak.
“I would say to Meghan Markle, ‘Look, sit down with me with your husband for an equally long interview … and let me ask you more difficult questions about all your claims,” he told Extra. “But let me ask you a wider question, which is this: If you hate the royal family that much, why do you keep your royal titles? Why do you keep calling yourself the Duke and Duchess of Sussex? Why would you do that if it’s just not to make millions and millions of dollars?”
Él agregó: “And playing the victim as you do is, frankly, nauseating.”
After the royals’ interview, Morgan said on air that he did not believe the claims they made, including accusations of racism by the royal family and the reveal that Markle faced suicidal thoughts due to intense media coverage.
Complaints were lobbied at “Buenos Días Gran Bretaña” over his comments, and it was reported that Markle was among those to do so — reportedly even calling an ITV executive to discuss the matter.
Morgan dicho he wasn’t aware that Markle had contacted his employer until after he left the show.
“It was certainly a very interesting revelation from where I sit because clearly, she was trying to put huge pressure on my bosses to take action against me,” él dijo.
es más, he said the complaints came from “an online mob” who he accused of “abusing” his sons and “issuing death threats to them.”
“The idea that my sons had to be targeted by so-called liberals in a way that was threatening to them, abusive and death threats and so on is completely disgusting,” Morgan said.
He also addressed the drama surrounding Osbourne, quién sparred on-air with co-host Sheryl Underwood as she tried to explain why Morgan’s views could be considered racist, and why Osbourne’s support could be considered enabling.
