After A Hypocritical Comment, Piers Morgan Gets Roasted By His Coworkers On The Air

The look on his face is nothing short of priceless

It’s been several years since Piers Morgan left his CNN show in America, but he’s remained a controversial figure on social media throughout. In the past several years, he’s been embroiled in racially and socially-charged Twitter feuds with the likes of J.K. Rowling, Chrissy Teigen, and other celebs far more beloved than he is.

It seems that while he might be adept at dishing out criticisms, he’s not so skilled at receiving them, as this Good Morning Britain clip shows. When Morgan begins to rant about how he can’t stand when people use social media to prattle on about politics, co-host Susanna Reid was none too slow in sarcastically agreeing, knowing that Morgan himself is guilty of the very act.


It doesn’t take long for the other co-host, Kate Garraway, to chime in as well with “And you just need rest … and a break and you just wish you could de-friend them.” It’s right around then that all doubt is removed, and Morgan realizes these are thinly-veiled criticisms about him.

It’s hard to tell what Morgan’s true reaction is, but his face displays a puzzled, confused expression while Reid tears him down, suggesting that perhaps he doesn’t know what he’s done to earn such mockery.

In any event, Morgan should be used to it, because this is hardly Reid’s first time to displeasure at Morgan’s rants. Here’s a wonderful compilation of such instances, showcasing her impatient and pained expressions as Morgan talks and talks.

I mean, this is a guy whose own son sided with J.K. Rowling during their Twitter beef, so clearly being close to the man doesn’t necessarily endear you to him.

The World Health Organization is hoping to drive down the cost of insulin by encouraging more generic drug makers to enter the market.

The organization hopes that by increasing competition for insulin, drug manufacturers will be forced to lower their prices.

Currently, only three companies dominate the world insulin market, Eli Lilly, Novo Nordisk and Sanofi. Over the past three decades they've worked to drastically increase the price of the drug, leading to an insulin availability crisis in some places.

In the United States, the price of insulin has increased from $35 a vial to $275 over the past two decades.

Oh, irony. You are having quite a day.

The Italian region of Veneto, which includes the city of Venice, is currently experiencing historic flooding. Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro has stated that the flooding is a direct result of climate change, with the tide measuring the highest level in 50 years. The city (which is actually a collection of 100 islands in a lagoon—hence its famous canal streets), is no stranger to regular flooding, but is currently on the brink of declaring a state of emergency as waters refuse to recede.

Since the International Whaling Commission banned commercial whaling in 1986, whale populations have been steadily recovering. However, whales in the wild still face other dangers. In the summer of 2018, four Russian companies that supply aquariums with marine animals captured almost 100 beluga whales and killer whales (aka orcas). After a public outcry, those whales are swimming free as the last of the captive whales have been released, the first time this many captured whales have been released back into the wild.

In late 2018 and early 2019, a drone captured footage of 11 orcas and 87 beluga whales crammed into holding pens in the Srednyaya Bay. The so-called "whale jail" made headlines, and authorities began to investigate their potentially illegal capture.

The NRA likes to diminish the role that guns play in fatal shootings by saying, "Guns don't kill people, people kill people."

Which is the same logic as, "Hammers don't build roofs, people build roofs." No duh. But it'd be nearly impossible to build a roof without a hammer.

So, shouldn't the people who manufacture guns share some responsibility when they are used for the purpose they're made: killing people? Especially when the manufacturers market the weapon for that exact purpose?
