Piers Morgan has made the unlikely decision of stepping away from Twitter.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter, who quit the show in March, has stepped back from the social media platform.
Piers has issued an update to his followers, saying: “When, as I’ve been doing these past few weeks, you spend a lot less time on Twitter, and a lot more time out & about in the real world, you realise just how many god-awful & unhinged people are on this platform.”
And Piers added: “I intend spending even less time in their putrid company.”
The controversial former newspaper editor left Good Morning Britain after a backlash to his comments about Meghan Markle.
Piers took aim at the Duchess of Sussex in the wake of her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan made a series of extraordinary allegations during the chat with US chat show legend Oprah.
The interview lasted 1 hour and 25 minutes and was broadcast via CBS in America and ITV1 in the UK.
Among Meghan’s claims was that the Royal Family expressed concern over how dark baby Archie’s skin would be.
She further claimed she sought help for suicidal thoughts but was not offered any.
Piers claimed he did not believe “a word” of her suicidal ideations.
He was implored to apologise by ITV chiefs – but refused to give an on air apology.
It came after thousands complained to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom over his comments – including the Duchess herself.
GMB continues to air each weekday at 6am.
