English broadcaster, journalist, writer, and television personality Piers Morgan seems to be obsessed with Meghan Markle. He claims that he does not hate her but only that he sees "right through her”. But it is worth noting that Morgan tweets an extraordinary amount about the Duchess of Sussex.



 

Markle’s controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey has become a global talking point, and many speculated about what she might say prior to its airing. But, a Twitter account pointed out that few people (or at least the ones with any kind of influence and celebrity) were as obsessed with her as Morgan.

One Twitter user claimed, “P*ers Morgan has tweeted about Meghan Markle FIFTY SEVEN times (yes, I counted!) in the last week alone. There is a irony in the fact that he thinks Meghan is a bully but his own pathological obsession with a woman that wants nothing to do with him is perfectly normal…” adding, “I want to know why this man has the power to go on Television and just say whatever the hell he wants? He's a complete narcissist and those that continue to give him a platform are complicit in the very harassment Meghan is talking about..”



 

Morgan, in the aftermath of that tweet, has spoken even more about the Duchess of Sussex. His latest tweets read: “Let’s be clear: Prince Harry and his wife just spent two hours trashing everything the Queen stands for & has worked so hard to maintain, whilst pretending to support her. And they did it while her 99yr-old husband Philip is seriously ill in hospital. It’s contemptible,” and “I wouldn’t believe Meghan Markle if she gave me a weather report.”



 

 



 

Counting the number of tweets that directly reference Markle (or Harry, the Duke of Sussex), Morgan has, since March 1, tweeted at least 55 times about either of the Sussexes or both or about the Royal Family in the context of the two. This does not include things he has retweeted or tweets directed at his critics -- where he has not directly mentioned the two. His tweets about Markle include claims like she “falsely accuses the British press of being racist,” and that “The Sussexes seem to inspire a special brand of sado-masochism in their supporters.”



 

 



 

 

British television presenter and journalist Susanna Reid, Morgan’s ‘Good Morning Britain’ co-host, too has accused him of being obsessed with the Sussexes. “I’m not, I write about them no more than anybody else,” Piers insisted on the show last week, claiming the couple should expect “legitimate criticism” if they continue to remain in the public eye.

“One person’s legitimate criticism is another person’s toxic coverage,” Reid argued. “The toxic thing and the bullying thing and the obsessive thing, all that is such lazy critique… I don’t know a single writer, apart from one, who hasn’t totally agreed with me about this. You’re the outlier, you’re the one who seems to want to constantly defend them.”

Markle said in an interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey that aired on CBS late on Sunday in the United States that post her marriage into the British royal family in 2018, she ended up having suicidal thoughts and considering self-harm after asking for help but getting none.

“It was only once we were married and everything started to really worsen that I came to understand that not only was I not being protected but that they were willing to lie to protect other members of the family,” Markle said. “There’s the family and then there’s the people that are running the institution, those are two separate things and it’s important to be able to compartmentalize that because the queen, for example, has always been wonderful to me.”

In the aftermath of the controversial interview with Oprah, Morgan said on his show: “I’m angry to the point of boiling over. I’m sickened by what I’ve just seen. This is a two-hour, trash-a-thon of our monarchy, and royal family. They trash everybody! They basically make out everybody in the royal family is a white supremacist. I just don’t think that’s acceptable.” Morgan also said on Twitter that 'Good Morning Britain' was "going to need a longer show" and to nominate Meghan for an Oscar, implying that the interview was just an act.
