Piers Morgan slams Kim Kardashian's "inappropriate" social media post in wake of Pittsburgh synagogue shootings
Morgan has never been a big fan of Kim Kardashian's social media posts, and now he seems to have a problem with their timings too
Piers Morgan wasn't very thrilled with what Kim Kardashian tweeted in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre which claimed the lives of 11 people, and the 'Good Morning Britain' host did not hesitate to slam the 38-year-old TV personality over the same.
Morgan re-tweeted a series of images of female figures which Kardashian had probably put up to endorse her latest makeup and perfume bottle collection.
Morgan, who despite being a supporter of Trump, has always been vocal against America’s notoriously lax gun laws, considered Kardashian's timing to upload the pictures as highly inappropriate.
In, what seem to be Morgan's anger about the shootings at Pittsburgh, the Twitter post says, "As America reels from a despicable mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Kim Kardashian posts this image to Twitter. Delete it, @KimKardashian - if you have a shred of decency left.”
While Morgan's criticism of Kardashian's liberal approach to social media is nothing new, it was initially reported that on seeing the tweets she had removed the images from her Twitter page.
Following the apparent removal of tweets, Morgan had also posted, "UPDATE: @KimKardashian has now deleted her repulsively inappropriate tweet.”
However, it seems that the popular socialite is adamant about promoting her products, and since Morgan's recent updates, she has put up several more such images which all showcase a naked female figure. Morgan is yet to comment on these posts.
This is certainly not the first time that Morgan has spoken up about what he thinks of Kardashian's approach to social media. His animus towards her approach gained prominence when in 2016, he wrote an entire column in The Daily Mail where he criticized a naked selfie the reality TV personality had posted on her Instagram account.
Calling the image "depressing", Morgan wrote, "She still looks fantastic, and of course has every right to post as many naked pictures as she likes. It's her body, her life but it's hard to escape the creeping suspicion that this new frenzied and frankly rather desperate attempt to 'break the internet' is happening because other younger members of her family have been grabbing all the scantily-clad attention recently, notably, half-sister 20-year-old Kendall 'Instagram Queen' Jenner."
However, Morgan seems to have been quite affected by the shooting in Pittsburgh, as he openly stated his opposition to citizens possessing AR-15 under the law.
He tweeted, "Pittsburgh shooter is reported to have used an AR-15, the preferred weapon of choice for most mass shooters in America (Sandy Hook, Vegas etc) because they kill lots of people very fast. This is what they look like.. I ask again: why the f*ck are these legal for civilians?"
