Piers Morgan responded to an open letter to ITV accusing him of “bullying and harassment”.
The 55-year-old Good Morning Britain star was recently caught in a Twitter spit with former Life Stories researcher Adeel Amini.
Their argument began after Adeel announced that he would refuse to work with Piers again.
Since then, over 1,000 signatories have signed an open letter to ITV accusing the star of “bullying”.
The letter presented to ITV executives was organized by an anonymous group of freelancers.
What did Piers Morgan say about the letter?
Today (February 22nd) Piers replied: “Beyond the parody. Mr. Amini aimed at me and said he wanted to “poke the beast”. I am therefore the victim.
These signatories now shame me.
“These signatories now shame me. I have no choice but to report to ITV now of my own ordeal from these 1,200 shameful bullies. “
