Piers Morgan and son Spencer called 'revolting' by stranger in the street after star quit GMB over Meghan Markle row
PIERS Morgan's son Spencer has revealed that they were called "revolting" by a stranger in the street after the star's dramatic week.
The 55-year-old presenter sensationally quit Good Morning Britain on Tuesday following an on-air spat with co-star Alex Beresford.
He has been supported by famous pals – including Amanda Holden and Sharon Osbourne – and his family in the following days.
And Spencer, 27, was blown away to see the support that his famous dad was getting – but slammed one "woke Karen" for lashing out at them.
Taking to his Twitter page he wrote: "Wow. Just went on one of them lame Covid walks with @piersmorgan
"The level of public support on the street was actually mind blowing. The social media bubble is fake. Team Piers is real. And it’s huge ?"
He then added: "Admittedly one dumba** woke Karen did walk past and say ‘you revolting people’ as two couples were praising him haha".
Piers received over 41,000 Ofcom complaints in just one day after Monday's episode of Good Morning Britain, where he accused Meghan Markle of lying about her mental health struggle in her and Prince Harry's bombshell Oprah interview.
The following day, Alex confronted his co-star live on Good Morning Britain, referencing Piers' personal grudge with the Duchess.
He said: "I understand that you don't like Meghan Markle, you've made it so clear a number of times on this programme.
"I understand you've got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one and she cut you off… She's entitled to cut you off if she wants to.
"Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don't think she has, but yet you continue to trash her."
And the remark hit a nerve, with Piers dramatically standing up and saying: "Okay, I'm done with this", as he stormed off set.
He was off-screen for almost 20 minutes, and tensions quickly grew again when the debate continued later on in the programme – with Alex repeatedly insisting that he wasn't accusing Piers of being racist.
That evening, ITV confirmed in a statement that Piers would not be returning to Good Morning Britain – with his comments on Monday's show also receiving criticism from lead mental health charity Mind.
