What an utter disgrace

Piers Morgan

The 55-year-old did not hold back after seeing The Apprentice star’s, 73, remarks denoucing some of the public for sunbathing in the UK yesterday.

The father-of-four shared a number of tweets with police saying they’d seen some having “picnics and sunbathing” despite being on lockdown, admitting it was “horribly selfish”.

It was then that Lord Sugar posted in view of his own 5.3 million users, claiming he didn’t see what was “wrong” with the move.

He posted: “I can’t for the life of me understand what @piersmorgan is on about in respect to sunbathing.

“If you are 10ft away from the next person in the open what’s wrong with that. In Essex we have big fields if you are in the middle of one chilling out in the sun what’s wrong with that?”

Piers shared his tweet as he replied: “Billionaire hiding safely in his luxury Florida home demands the right for British people to all go out sunbathing, in direct contravention of Govt instructions, as UK #coronavirus death toll rockets incl more & more NHS staff on the frontline.

“What an utter disgrace,” which has since garnered almost 4,000 likes.

His BBC Breakfast rival Dan Walker agreed with him: “With respect, it’s about respect. Look up Nero… this is the modern equivalent #StayAtHomeSaveLives.”

Piers went on to say he’d had enough of Lord Sugar, after spotting one person tell him: “Piers, why are you even giving this idiot your time.

“Sunbathing, when our NHS staff are dying trying to save lives… shame on everyone who is doing this or thinks it’s ok to do it.”

The Good Morning Britain replied: “I’m done with @Lord_Sugar, trust me. His behaviour over this crisis has been an absolute disgrace, especially for a peer.

“But when he actively encourages British people to go out sunbathing, I can’t just sit back & say nothing. His reckless, shameful stupidity will kill people.”

He angrily added on seeing one fan quip “ding ding, round three,” in relation to the spat: “This is not a f**king game.”

Piers did not stop there as he retweeted various messages as well as responding to ones that hit out at him.

He shared: “Come and do a shift with me Lord Sugar. Come and stand with us as we fight to save our patients, knowing that some of them will not make it.

“We are pushed to the limit. Your tweet is just another example of people ‘not getting it’. Grow up.”

He then reiterated by sharing: “‘Sunbathing is against the rules that have been set out for important public health reasons… to save lives & help the NHS.’ – Health Secretary @MattHancock on @SophyRidgeSky. This could not be any clearer. If you go out today to sunbathe, you are a selfish, reckless b***ard.”

One of Piers’ user citisiced, tweeting: “Wonder if Piers Morgan is giving up his massive garden and pool in sympathy with all the families in cramped council flats he thinks are selfish reckless b***ards for enjoying a bit of sun.”

And the star did not take that lying down, adding: “I’m in London with no pool, and a very small garden. I’ve lent my LA home to a friend who had a very small one.

“And my parents are self-isolating at our Sussex home. Hope this helps with your concerns, which have nothing to do with someone’s ability to observe simple rules.”

Good Morning Britain continues tomorrow at 6am on ITV.
