Piers Morgan Got Absolutely Thrashed By A Black ‘Good Morning Britain’ Colleague After Bashing Harry And Meghan And Defending The Royal Family’s Racism [Photos + Video]

There has been a lot of reaction to the explosive sit-down, both on social media and in the U.S. and U.K. press. On Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan called the segment an “absolutely disgraceful betrayal.” He went even further to dismiss claims that racism drove the couple from the royal family, but GMB guest Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, a political and women’s rights activist, wasn’t having any of it.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Sunday night interview with CBS Evening News ended up being the result of the couple not being able to publicly speak their mind for years. One could reasonably expect that their feelings about how Meghan was treated by the British Royal Family would come out, and that definitely happened. People were outraged, and a few portions of the interview in particular have drawn much ire. That would be the part where Harry more than suggested that, during discussions with unidentified family members about Harry and Meghan’s child, Archie, that a racially-charged motivation surfaced against Meghan. During the interview, Meghan also revealed that she’d grown suicidal while living as part of the British Royal Family, and she felt that Harry’s decision to leave saved her life. Well, Piers Morgan is a cheerleader for the Royals, and he tweeted his distaste for Meghan (who he called “shameful” while accusing her of “vile destructive self-serving nonsense”) following the interview.

Bright and early on Monday morning, Piers popped into his hosting gig on Good Morning Britain, where he complained of a “two-hour trash-athon of our Royal Family, or our monarchy, of everything the Queen has worked so hard for, while her husband is in hospital.” However, Black activist and This Is Why I Resist author Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu (who’s a frequent face on GMB) was ready for him while he kept on interjecting to dismiss Meghan’s claims. Here’s what Shola had to say:

“Listen, you might learn something. The royal family is an institution rooted in colonialism, white supremacy, and racism. The legacy is right there. So you’re now surprised that a comment would have been made by several members of the royal family about how dark Archie’s skin is… You’re more outraged that Harry and Meghan had the audacity to speak their truth than at the actual outrage of racism.”
To that, Piers could only offer that he felt it was “disgusting” that Shola would say such a thing about the Queen, to which Shola responded, “You are disgusting!”

Shola also made note of how the Queen didn’t lift a finger to defend Harry and Meghan, but she has gone to great lengths to protect her own son as Jeffrey Epstein-related allegations swirl about Prince Andrew having sex with a 17-year-old girl (with a monetary transaction involved). The controversy certainly isn’t over yet. The subject has even prompted a resurfacing of a John Oliver prediction (from 2018), in which the Last Week Tonight host declared. “I don’t think you need to have just seen the pilot episode of The Crown to get a basic sense of, ‘She might be marrying into a family that could cause her some emotional complications.’”

It’s worth noting that GMB had no issue with posting the fiery exchange between Piers and Shola on YouTube, but they did turn off the video’s comments. Well, Shola is drawing praise elsewhere, including this tweet: “Good morning to Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu only, who woke up this morning and dragged Piers Morgan.”

As for Piers, he followed up his performance with a photoshopped image of “himself” in a loin cloth in front of a fire, Deadpool-style, “to show my appreciation” for International Women’s Day. Oh boy.

Protect Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu.
