Activist and author Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu argued that former Good Morning Britain (GMB) host Piers Morgan had an obsession with Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle that borders on stalking. Mr Morgan decided to leave his position as host of GMB following thousands of complaints to Ofcom and backlash over his comments regarding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. He insisted that he did not believe a word of her grievances which sparked rows surrounding the discussion of mental health and race issues.
While speaking on BBC, Dr Mos-Shogbamimu accused Mr Morgan of being maliciously obsessed with the Duchess and consistently critical of her.
When asked whether she felt it was right that Mr Morgan was now gone from GMB, she said: “I think, love him or hate him, agree or disagree, there is no denying that his malicious obsession over Meghan Markle is truly reprehensible.
“His irrational dislike of her has led him to abuse his position as a host on one of the national platforms of the country.
“That means he inevitably escalates and aggravates the bigotted, racist, sexist and misogynistic attacks on Meghan Markle.”

She added that she had told Piers Morgan her views on this matter directly.
Dr Mos-Shogbamimu continued to highlight her concerns about Piers Morgan’s behaviour regarding the Duchess.
She said: “How in heaven’s name could I possibly feel any sympathy to Piers Morgan.
“Piers Morgan cut off his own nose to spite his face by being so utterly repugnant to Meghan Markle because she ghosted him.

Meghan Markle and Harry: Queen told to ‘step up’ by commentator
“If this was any other man we would be calling this stalking.”
“Let us understand that his job as a broadcaster should not be that he uses his own personal dislike of someone to aggravate ongoing dislike against them.
“I think that is beyond his job.”
Following his comments and departure from GMB, Piers Morgan told reporters outside of his home that he stands by his comments and is not concerned about his job prospects.

He said: ” said he is “always in talks with people” about other jobs.
He commented: “I think it’s fair to say, although the woke crowd will think that they’ve cancelled me, I think they will be rather disappointed when I re-emerge.”
He added: “I’m just going to take it easy and see how we go.
“I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion.
“If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that’s entirely their right.”
