Piers Morgan's remarks on ITV's 'Good Morning Britain' have invited much backlash for the television show host and the most recent celebrity to slam him is Jameela Jamil. She tweeted on Tuesday, March 9 about Morgan after he quit the show.

She tweeted, "I almost killed myself a year ago because of Piers Morgan's relentless campaign of lies and hatred against me last February," and added, "I'm glad I'm still alive today for many reasons. But watching him leave GMB today is right up there and has me feeling."

In a series of tweets, she added, "May we NEVER have to watch minorities have to go on mainstream news and have to *defend* their right to be treated with dignity and respect... ever again. All while being screamed over by this man. @GMB."

Then, she also added, "Now he can fuck off to that little basement they are making into the new Hard right news channel. “For bigots and incels... By bigots and incels.” She then said, "OH MY GOD IS IT MY BIRTHDAY AGAIN?! I hope @alexberesfordTV replaces his role. What a gent!"





Jameela had also criticized Thomas Markle's interview on 'Good Morning Britain' after Markle gave her and Prince Harry an ultimatum on live TV asking them to get in touch with him or risk more interviews from him. She tweeted, "HOW MUCH MONEY WAS THOMAS MARKLE PAID TO TRASH AND THEN BLACKMAIL HIS PREGNANT DAUGHTER ON YOUR SHOW @ITV @GMB AND CONTRADICT HER ON THE RACISM OF A COUNTRY AND FAMILY HE’S NEVER EXPERIENCED PERSONALLY? HOW MUCH ARE YOU TRYING TO SPEND ON A MISCARRIAGE?"

Markle had in this interview said that he did feel bad about setting up the paparazzi shots and said that "in spite of all that, I still apologized, I'm apologizing today again." He added, "we all make mistakes... but I've never played naked pool and I've never dressed up like Hitler." He also added, "Bottom line is I’ve never heard back from Harry and Meghan in any way, shape or form. Basically what I do because I don’t hear from them, [is] I do a story with the press."

He also added, "If I don’t hear from them in 30 days, I'll do another one. I would love to hear from them. When they decide to talk to me, I’ll stop talking to the press. I've been pushed around and knocked down for one thing I did, for one big mistake I made, and I've apologized for it as many times as I possibly can."

Morgan, on the other hand, said that he did not believe Meghan's claim about how her mental health was affected while she was living as a senior royal or that she felt suicidal when she was pregnant with Archie. At this time, fellow host Alex Beresford called him out for his remarks leading to Morgan walking out of the sets and later quitting the show.
