Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 55, has taken to social media in defence of his friend Sharon Osbourne, 68, after it was announced that she made the decision to leave the show The Talk earlier today. Piers claimed the presenter was “bullied out of a job” after defending him and his comments about Meghan Markle, who he continued to brand a “liar.” It was announced by CBS that the presenter had made the decision to leave The Talk after sparking furious backlash as she defended Piers Morgan’s comments on Meghan Markle.
Bullied out of her job for defending me
The former newspaper editor posted a picture of himself hugging the red-haired media personality in view of his 1.6million Instagram followers.
The caption read: “What’s happened to @sharonosbourne is an absolute disgrace that shames CBS.
“Bullied out of her job for defending me against an invented slur of racism because I don’t believe a liar.”
The ITV host went on to vow to tell his version of the “truth” about what happened in a tell-all story tomorrow.
He continued: “I’ll tell MY truth about this woke cancel culture bull***t.”
This morning Piers took to social media to vow to tell his side of the story about “Meghan, Oprah, racism, the Royals and quitting GMB.”
The Life Stories star wrote: “COMING TOMORROW… Everyone else has had their say, now I’ll have mine.”
It was announced in a statement released by CBS earlier today that Sharon chose not to return to The Talk after she was criticised for her comments about Meghan Markle and Piers Morgan.
The statement read that the former host’s “behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace.”
The Talk has been on hiatus for two weeks awaiting the results of CBS investigation, but will now resume from 12 April.
Sharon clashed with her The Talk co-hosts as she defended Piers Morgan after he made comments following Meghan Markle’s landmark interview with Oprah Winfrey.
During the chat, the Duchess of Sussex spoke about how she was unhappy in the royal family and her own mental health struggles.

Piers then made comments on Good Morning Britain claiming he did not believe her, which led to more than 57,000 complaints to Ofcom.
Sharon defended her Britain’s Got Talent friend and former co-presenter on the March 10 show of The Talk and was accused of validating racism.
Her co-host Sheryl Underwood said to her: “What would you say to people who may feel that, while you’re standing by your friend, it appears that you gave validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist, even if you don’t agree?”
Sharon responded: “I feel even like I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist so that makes me a racist.”
Following backlash from viewers, Sharon later apologised for her actions in a lengthy post on Twitter for her 2.3million followers to see.
It read: “To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said.
“I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive and allowed my fear and horror of being accused of being racist take over.”
She went to say that she was “not perfect” and “will continue to learn, listen and do better” in the future.”
