Piers Morgan has received a telling off on social media after he asked if someone could drop a “silence bomb” on Prince Harry.

It came after it was revealed Harry would be dropping more “truth bombs” in his TV series with Oprah.

“Can someone drop a silence bomb on the little berk? His constant whining is damaging my mental health,” Piers tweeted.

Fans were not impressed.

One tweeted: “So you’re saying he should remain in silence? Great message to send to others who deal with mental health issues.”

The promised “truth bombs” came out today, with Harry revealing more details about how Meghan was suicidal.

Piers previously said he didn’t believe Meghan when she said she previously felt like she didn’t want to be alive. She made the revelation in their bombshell interview with Oprah earlier this year.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter refused to apologise for his comments. He eventually quit the show after receiving a record number of complaints.

Now, in the wake of Harry’s latest revelations in his new docuseries, Piers has lashed out again.

He tweeted: “Oh FFS. Is there no end to Prince Privacy’s victimhood tour? Constantly abusing his family, knowing they can’t respond, is so pathetic & cowardly. Man up, Harry – and shut up.”

A social media user then replied criticising him, saying: “Seriously think you’re the one who needs to shut up. Your complete lack of understanding and empathy is appalling.”

Piers responded: “What ’empathy’ is Harry showing his family as he constantly trashes them in public? It’s grotesquely unfair (they can’t answer back) outrageously hypocritical, and he’s making millions from doing it. THAT’S appalling.”

Response

Meanwhile, people were quick to defend Harry.

“This poor kid was asked to ‘man up’ when he was 12. He knows more about ‘manning up’ and toxic masculinity than you ever will,” said one.

Another referred to Piers walking off the set on GMB after he was criticised: “‘Man up’ says man who storms off when the going gets tough.”

Someone else added: “I don’t quite see it as trashing his family. He’s putting what he believes to be their part in his experience into context. I’m certain many have or are experiencing what he is, that may in turn help them”

This person got a jab in: “Being forced to go to other countries constantly would make someone exhausted though, but not quite as exhausting as listening to you bash Harry and Meghan over your hurt feelings that she ghosted you.”

However, others agree with Piers.

One said: “Oprah & Harry are Executive Producers of this series & making a great deal of money from hurting others. Along with the “interview” this is a very lucrative business for them both. All said noone was paid for the 1st interview but kept silent about the business relationship.”

“If he was only talking about his own feelings & how he was getting help then I’d be extremely sympathetic. But to trash your family in such a public way, fully knowing that they cannot properly reply, is self-indulgent and just plain wrong,” adds another.

Do you think Piers is right?
