Morgan quit “Good Morning Britain” after it was announced that he would be investigated by U.K.’s media regulator Ofcom over his insensitive remarks about Meghan Markle‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey. Ofcom officials noted that Morgan’s comments about the wife of Prince Harry drew more than 41,000 complaints.
Commenting on Markle’s explosive sit-down, Morgan said in the Monday, March 8 episode of his breakfast show, “I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report.” He was referring to the former “Suits” actress’ revelations which included confession that she contemplated suicide while living with the British royal family.
Having landed in hot water for his comments, Morgan tried to clarify his statements. “When we talked about this yesterday, I said an all-encompassing thing. I still don’t believe what Meghan Markle says generally in this interview and I have serious concerns about the veracity of a lot of what she said,” he first pointed out on Tuesday.
“But let me just state my position on mental illness and on suicide. These are clearly extremely serious things and should be taken extremely seriously,” he further explained. “And if someone is feeling that way they should get the treatment and the help that they need every time. Every time.”
