Alex Beresford, the weather man who called out Piers Morgan on his racist vitriol against Meghan Markle, is speaking out now that Morgan has left Good Morning Britain, saying in a statement:
There is so much that could be said. Piers' departure sincerely wasn't the conclusion I was hoping for.
Over the last few years, Piers and I have had a lively, cheeky on-air relationship. We both wanted to be on the show Tuesday morning, and from our very public conversations on Twitter, we both knew how strongly our opinions differed on the treatment of Harry and Meghan pre and post the interview that has split the world.
I hoped we could reach a place of understanding. It's sad that we weren't able to get there, but challenging his opinion was not an outrage. On this occasion, we have to agree to disagree.
I didn't want him to quit, but I did want him to listen.
Personally, Piers has always supported my growth. He's given me advice on several occasions and for that I am grateful. I wish him well!
I disagree with him. Good people can disagree, but Piers Morgan is not a good person. He has spewed horrendous daggers of character assassination against anyone who's rubbed him wrong for hears. Beresford had it right originally: “Diabolical.”
