Piers Morgan took another nudge from Meghan Markle when responding to criticism from a follower who apparently claimed he was fired from ITV.
Morgan has been an outspoken critic of the Duchess of Sussex for many years. Most dramatically, he left the set of Good Morning Britain after being called out for his typically negative coverage of Markle after her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Morgan later announced that he would not be returning to Good Morning Britain because he refused to apologize for his opinion on Markle.

“ITV didn’t get rid of me” Morgan wrote over the weekend. “I left GMB because I refused to apologize for not believing Princess Pinocchio.”
