On the Good Morning Britain news today, John Barrowman shared viewers after launching a rant against the government.
As a result, on Friday (March 19), the Dancing On Ice judge became embroiled in ministers for failing to assist theater staff during the coronavirus pandemic.
However, not all GMB viewers were interested in hearing John’s disgrace.
Shortly after her interview with Minister of Culture Oliver Dowden, he wanted to see Charlotte Hawkins and Kate Garraway.
Good Morning Britain News: What Did John Barrowman Say?
He raged, “Let me start with the £ 200 million given to the theater industry. Most of it went to theaters across the country and to theaters and producers in the West End.
“Not much of it went to the actors and performers, the stage workers, the wig mistresses, the healthy people, the staff in front of the house – everyone else who deals with theater.”

John continued, “I’m a sports lover myself, but I always get sick and tired when I keep hearing, ‘Let’s fill the stadium and make it socially aloof.’ “
John went on to explain how Oliver Dowden attended a show at the Palladium Theater over Christmas. Everyone had distanced themselves socially and wore masks, while the performers wore face protection. And it turned out to be certain that theatrical productions could work safely, argued John.
Stop whining Barrowman, stick with what you can …
He went on to say that the conversation always seems to be about sports venues before saying, “Fill the damn theaters to partial capacity, Oliver Dowden!”
John also pointed out that theater is a “huge industry” valued at “£ 800 million a year.”
He concluded: “[The government is] When I don’t care about the artists or performers, I’m sick of it all the time, Charlotte and Kate, I really, really do. “
The audience tells John to stop whining.
A viewer raged on Twitter: “[Bleep] Out, Barrowman … all he’s bothered by is the attention he hasn’t gotten in a year. “
“Stop hitting Barrowman,” said a second, adding, “stick with what you can … oh what is that?”
“I hate this Barrowman …” said a third frustrated viewer.
“#GMB football is a lot of money John … theater work is little money … you do the MATH,” argued a fourth. They added in a separate tweet, “Oh [bleep] before John with this theatrical crap … it’s not a priority. “
“Lots of other industries are suffering, John, not just theater FFS,” said a fifth with an angry emoji face.
“John Barrowman is going to be a monkey,” remarked another.
Stop hitting Barrowman #GMB stick with what you can … oh what is that?

Some praise “fantastic” rant
Not everyone felt that way, though. Some praised John’s “passionate” speech and called his interview “fantastic”.
One fan tweeted, “Passionate speech from #johnbarrowman on #gmb about how the government grant for theater went to venues and producers. NOT performers and backstage staff! “

Another wrote: “Absolutely amazing @JohnBarrowman on #GMB. No person in this government has ever spoken of this industry with such passion! Oliver Dowden couldn’t even get the show’s name before waffling on with his monotonous, boring sucker. “
Someone else said: “Yes #gmb, I have to see @JohnBarrowman vs @OliverDowden, John will ask Oliver what to ask!”
“Ooh John Barrowman is mad,” said another, adding, “He has one point though. It was all about sports.”
