GMB profiting from Piers Morgan’ transphobia

Hopefully, this will be our last post about this attention whore until he finds his final 'resting' place.

A twitter poll by Good Morning Britain (GMB) with nearly a half-million votes showed people want Piers Morgan fired by a margin of 60%. This poll, purportedly conducted in good faith was in response to Piers Morgan’s latest transphobic tirade on GMB.

Piers Morgan responded angerly to the poll in a tweet on the GMB timeline calling transgender people ‘snowflakes’, a dehumanizing term which he often uses insinuating that we are of no substance.

But he looked helpless, perhaps even penguin-like, as his imagined personal ‘army’ failed to rise to his defense.

And according to the trash tabloid, Mirror Piers Morgan said farewell Wednesday morning and won’t be seen for at least two weeks. Well, of course, that was a lie.

Sadly this all is just another display of the deeply troubled British media’s duplicity.

I live in the States and don’t watch GMB so I am nearly ignorant about Piers Morgan other than an understanding that he has made controversy his trademark with transphobic and racial commentary in the past.

But I have read that the UK is suffering a surge of hate crimes, as societies do when ‘conservatives’ lead. The UK and Wales hate crimes reported to police increased by 10% last year according to the BBC. And according to the Guardian, hate crimes have doubled in the past 5 years,

There were a record 103,379 offenses in 2018-19, Home Office figures show.

The Home Office said the increase was largely driven by better recording by police but charities said the figures were “the tip of the iceberg”.

Hate crimes are offenses motivated by hostility towards someone’s race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or transgender identity.

Race hate crimes accounted for around three-quarters of offenses (78,991) and rose by 11% on the previous year.

Transgender hate crime went up 37% to 2,333. For sexual orientation the rise was 25% to 14,491, for disability 14% to 8,256 and for religion 3% to 8,566.

Piers Morgan retweeted this interview from June 2019 as if to vindicate himself.

Dr. David Mackereth was fired from his job at the NHS as he refused to identify transgender patients by their chosen gender as they are against his Christian beliefs. Journalist India Willoughby gives her thoughts on transgender and religion after Piers challenges Dr David on his issue with transgender rights.

He proved a point but not the one he intended to. Piers Morgan is a moral reprobate, an attention whore, who uses controversial and bigoted comments for his personal gain. And Good Morning Britain is twice as bad for employing him and profiting from his immoral divisiveness.

Pink News is turning lemons into lemonade with the help of the London Zoo. (My name wasn’t top of the list, but they are all so adorable)

The Petition calling for his removal details his bigotry and a decade long disregard for social norms and journalistic integrity.
