What did Troll Piers say on Twitter?
A Twitter user tweeted to Piers: “Tonight @piersmorgan will be in a boardroom cheering on England. This is the man who attacked Raheem Sterling and called the players “woke up”.
“History will judge him.”
Piers didn’t have one with him, however, and responded violently with a list of comebacks.

The bestselling author replied, “a) I will be in the bulk, not in a box.
“B) I never woke up the players and I always supported them when they kneeled.
“C) I get on very well with Raheem. In fact, we texted each other last night. However, you are right about one thing – I will cheer England on. “
How did Piers’ followers react?
But not all Piers fans are so convinced. Several pointed out that Piers called Raheem many times about a gun tattoo.
One user argued, “Was that after begging for forgiveness or did you convince them that the gun tattoo was not an issue?”
And another user replied: “You asked him not to play for England anymore when he had a gun tattooed on his leg, you said it triggered the gun culture.”
a) I will be in the bulk, not in a box.
b) I never woke up the players and always helped them kneel.
c) I get along very well with Raheem. In fact, we texted each other last night. However, you are right about one thing – I will be cheering England on. 🏴 https://t.co/Qi6fDllCIh

While a third user claimed, “They planned Sterling because he had a gun tattooed on his leg.”
What did Piers say about the tattoo?
In fact, in 2018, Piers repeatedly expressed disdain for Sterling’s gun tattoo.
At one point he tweeted: “England star is tattooing an assault rifle on his leg shortly before the World Cup – and is it the media’s fault to report / question it? Do me a damn favor! Sterling did this consciously and knew exactly what excitement it would cause. “
And on another occasion he hit back Dan Walker’s apparent approval of the act by saying, “So you think it’s perfectly fine for an English soccer star to have a big assault rifle tattooed on his leg where it can be seen right before a World Cup Billions of people? I find THAT quite strange and sad, regardless of its explanation. “
In fact, Raheem revealed that the tattoo was in honor of his slain father. And that it serves as a symbol that he would never use a weapon himself.
He said on Instagram: “When I was 2, my father died by being shot.
“I made a promise to myself that I would never touch a gun in my life. I shoot with my right foot so it has a deeper meaning and is still unfinished.”
