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.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
