GMB’s Piers Morgan accuses guest of race-baiting in furious Meghan Markle row

Things got seriously heated on Piers Morgan this morning.

Host Piers Morgan was seen getting in to a furious row with lawyer and political and women's rights activist Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu.

Piers, 54, accused Dr Shola of "race-baiting" as she spoke out to defend Meghan Markle on the ITV show.

Dr Shola claimed Meghan was a target of racism in the UK.

However, Piers slammed Meghan once again, saying she "ripped Prince Harry away from his family."

Piers was also seen telling Dr Shola that she "has to let people have their say".

He added: "I'm going to teach you the art of listening."

The lawyer quipped back: "Oh, says Piers."

He told her: "Well it's not your show."

Many GMB fans seemed to support Dr Shola over the row.

One viewer tweeted: "Oh God, turn on the TV and the very first thing I see is the hate mongering Piers Morgan literally spitting with anger about Meghan Markle. Get the f**k over it you horrible specimen. Can we put him in a rocket and shoot him to the moon?"

While another added: "I don't have much time for the royals, but I've followed the coverage of Meghan in the media. It doesn't surprise me the likes of Danny Baker, Piers Morgan, and Schoolboy Schofield are blind to the racism directed at her. They're white, they're privileged, and they're ignorant."

A third chimed in: "Someone needs to tell Piers Morgan on TV he’s behaving like a creepy, obsessed old man."

Piers was supported by some though, as one fan wrote online: "Well said Piers Morgan."
