Piers Morgan today claimed he has been the victim of “racism” after being called a “fat white gammon” on Twitter.
The Good Morning Britain host lashed out at suggestions coverage of Meghan Markle has been racist – saying there had been “legitimate” questions over her and Prince Harry’s conduct.
And he instead claimed he himself had been the target of racism on social media.
Speaking today, he said: “On social media, I get called a fat white gammon all day long. That is also racist.”
Susanna Reid jumped in, saying: “I don’t think we should use people’s skin colour too insult.”
GMB viewers also took to twitter saying ”If someone is called a ‘fat white Gammon’ that is most definitely a racist comment.”
