Piers Morgan, 55, has accused Meghan Markle, 39, of being a “liar” as he waded into the news that Sharon Osbourne’s US TV show The Talk has been pulled off air. It comes after the former Good Morning Britain presenter had to leave the ITV show last week as he refused to apologise to the Duchess of Sussex for his controversial comments about her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Sharon then defended Piers on the CBS show by having a heated debate with her The Talk co-star Sheryl Underwood about his opinions on Meghan and her husband Prince Harry.

Piers was accused of racism by Sheryl, who also said that Sharon’s tweet in support of him could be misconstrued.

CBS recently confirmed that the show is under “internal review” and will be going into a hiatus in the meantime.

Addressing the situation, Piers took to Twitter to share a throwback photo of himself appearing on The Talk alongside Sharon and her co-hosts.

He wrote beside the snap in view of his 7.8million followers: “So ⁦@CBS has yanked The Talk off air while it investigates the ‘scandal’ of ⁦@MrsSOsbourne defending me when @sherylunderwood said I was ‘racist’ for disbelieving Meghan Markle. 

“The REAL scandal is me being branded a racist for refusing to believe a liar.”

Twitter users took to the comments section of Piers’ post to share their thoughts on the row over the chat show.

One person argued: “It was because she screamed at Sheryl and demanded she ‘educate her’ on racism, like say Google isn’t free. Defending would’ve been ok if she didn’t scream at Sheryl and also weaponise her whiteness with those crocodile tears. Lets not confuse defence with aggression!”

 

Another added: “No, you have decided she’s a liar. That’s your opinion, not a fact.”

A third person replied: “This is because she hurt his feelings by dropping him as a friend. He is an obsessed bully, but I dont think racist.”(sic)

However, some sided with Piers, with one fan commenting: “Piers is the least racist person I’ve ever seen. He just states his opinions and the woke brigade can’t handle it. Keep doing your thing Piers, you’re the best tv presenter this country has ever seen.”

A second person penned: “Oh this is getting rediculous Piers, Sharon is NOT racist, you’re NOT racist. People need to get a grip of the situation here! “The world’s gone nuts!!” @piersmorgan @MrsSOsbourne.”(sic)

Sharon has since said she was “caught off guard” in Wednesday’s instalment of The Talk, which saw her speak about her support for Piers Morgan.

The former X Factor judge has since apologised “to anyone of colour” that she may have been offended while discussing the matter on air.

She wrote in view of her 2.3 million followers: “To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said.

“I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive and allowed my fear and horror of being accused of being racist take over.”

She went to say that she was “not perfect” and “will continue to learn, listen and do better” in the future.

In a statement, the network said: “We are committed to a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace.

“All matters related to the Wednesday episode of The Talk are currently under internal review.”

Earlier in the week, Sharon had tweeted her support for her friend Piers.

“@piersmorgan I am with you. I stand by you. People forget that you’re paid for your opinion and that you’re just speaking your truth,” she wrote on March 9.
