The Good Morning Britian show had an explosive segment today March 8 as its host, Piers Morgan and author/women’s right activist, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu clashed over the British media personality’s comment about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Recall that Piers Morgan had likened Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to dictators who according to him want only positive media coverage. The comment was made ahead of their interview with media mogul, Oprah Winfrey.
Reacting to this on live TV, Dr Shola stated that the British media personality is disgusting and also a liar.
Furiously ranting about the Royal Family as she accused them of being “white supremacists”, activist Dr Shola said:
“What kind of grandmother would be so close to her grandson Harry, but not use her power of influence to protect them from the racist media coverage?Loading...
“You sit there, Piers, and bang on about how the royal institution is not racist. Are you out of your God forsaken mind?”
Piers responded: “I find what you are saying about the Queen disgraceful. You are entitled to your opinion, but I am allowed to respond?”
Dr Shola spoke over Piers saying: “Listen, you might learn something. The Royal Family is rooted in colonialism, white supremacy and racism.”
Piers cut in adding: “Are we allowed to engage in any of this? You are not stopping them. Am I allowed to respond to this? I think what you have said about the Queen is disgusting.”
Dr Shola responded by saying : “You are disgusting.”
Piers said: “Allow me to explain. Allow me to defend our Royal Family. The Queen is 94, her husband is 99 and lying in hospital seriously ill.”
Dr Shola shocking replied: “So what?”
Stunned Piers shouted: “Let me speak. Please let me speak Shola. I’d like to finish please.”
Dr Shola continued:
“You bring up coverage of Meghan and Harry on their wedding day and their engagement but conveniently forget to show the coverage before they were married, between their engagement and their wedding day.
“And I am sorry, but you conveniently forget Prince Harry spoke out in November 2016 of the racist undertones of the British media coverage.
“You conveniently forget all of that to show that and show a picture which is all hunky dory. Nonsense.”
The exchange has received a huge social media response as many stated that Dr Shola has finally put Piers Morgan in his place.
