Piers Morgan, 56, has made another attack against “woke culture” as he fumed over recent news. The outspoken broadcaster was left annoyed after a librarian had to apologise for sharing a photo of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The King’s College London employee reportedly had to say sorry for using the picture after Prince Philip’s “history of racist and sexist comments”.
Reacting to the news, the former Good Morning Britain presenter fumed that it was “insanity”.
He penned in view of his 7.9 million followers: “This is where woke culture is taking us… to utter insanity.”
He then retweeted the article published in The Times about the Prince Philip news.
According to the publication, the picture was used in a bulletin sent around to announce his death.
However, following its publication, an email was reportedly sent around with an apology.
In the email, which was obtained by The Mail on Sunday, this said: “The picture was included as a historical reference point following his death … the inclusion of the picture was not intended to commemorate him.
“Through feedback and subsequent conversations, we have come to realise the harm that this caused members of our community, because of his history of racist and sexist comments.
“We are sorry to have caused this harm.”
The Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9 at the age of 99.
Piers is known for standing up against “woke culture” and often takes aim at it.
In a recent interview, he took aim at the “woke brigade” over his exit from Good Morning Britain.
Speaking about leaving the show, he said: “We had broken our ratings record twice in the previous week.
“You know, I wasn’t expecting a carriage clock for beating the BBC, but I didn’t expect it to be my last day either.”
He then added to the Daily Mail: “It fundamentally came down to a lot of pressure being applied internally.
“This is going on everywhere around the world, you know?
“The young, self-righteous, angry woke brigade affect everything.’”
Elsewhere Piers has revealed he was sent a letter simply addressed to “Mr Piers Morgan National Icon”.
Sharing a picture with his followers, he penned: “It got to me.”
He accompanied the tweet with a laughing emoji, with more than 3,500 fans liking the snap.
