Piers Morgan and Meghan Markle: Paul Sinha mocks ‘screaming’ GMB host

The quizzer likened the situation to the plot of Monsters Inc

The Meghan and Harry interview had Piers Morgan calling out ‘racist bullying’ aimed at him over his criticism of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 55, is a vocal critic of the royal couple and after their bombshell interview on American TV on Sunday (March 7) evening with host Oprah Winfrey, he took to social media to blast the impact of the conversation.

But his tweets appeared to attract the ire of The Chase quizzer and comedian Paul Sinha, who mocked the GMB presenter on Twitter.

What did Paul Sinha say about Piers Morgan and his Meghan Markle ranting?

Paul Sinha made a reference to the Pixar film Monsters Inc in a scathing tweet about Piers.

He wrote: “Monsters entirely fuelled by screaming seemed far fetched ’til Piers Morgan.”

In Monsters Inc, the characters work in a factory that powers a city by bottling children’s screams.

Another said: “Didn’t realise screaming was the only way to communicate until this morning when Mr M was ‘communicating’.”

Monsters entirely fuelled by screaming seemed far fetched ’til Piers Morgan.

A third wrote: “Scrolling through here today with a hard hat on.”

During the Oprah interview, which airs tonight (Monday, March 8) on ITV, the Duchess of Sussex claimed there were “concerns” among the Royal Family over how dark Archie would be.

She also revealed she felt suicidal during her pregnancy, and claimed that when she said she needed help, someone told her she “couldn’t… it wouldn’t be good for The Institution”.

What has Piers said?

Piers was angry on Twitter as calls for the abolition of the monarchy started trending.

He wrote: “So, #AbolishTheMonarchy is now trending, albeit below me. Congrats Meghan and Harry – your mission is complete.”

And he fumed on Good Morning Britain earlier, while his co-host Susanna Reid sighed next to him: “They’ve trashed everything the Queen has worked so hard for and we’re supposed to believe they’re compassionate?”

On Twitter later, he demanded that people stop sending him abusive tweets.

He penned: “Can all the Meghan/Harry fans currently abusing me with stuff like ‘shut the [bleep] up white man’ please stop trying to silence my voice with racist bullying? Thanks.”
