PIERS Morgan today broadened his attack on the celebrities he reckons should be ashamed of their behaviour during the coronavirus crisis – by attacking 20 of them at once.
The Good Morning Britain host, 55, sent a rocket in the drection of stars including Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba and even the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Writing in his Mail column today, he warmed up by blasting Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot for her much-criticised, "tone deaf" version of Imagine that was supposed to lift people's spirits but left people cringing.
But he soon moved on to weightier targets, saying Idris Elba had a place on his "idiot" list despite having contracted coronavirus himself – because he exposed the fact that A-listers were getting tested while NHS staff couldn't.
He later attacked High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens, who called the virus a "bunch of bulls**t", saying she was in "urgent need of shutting the f*** up".
And his ire soon turned on singer Sam Smith, who earned a place on Piers' list thanks to a series of pictures they shared of a "meltdown" in self-isolation.

The TV star raged at the time: "FFS. I can’t take any more of this celebrity attention-seeking bulls***. Get a grip, the lot of you. This is a war, not an Instagram story op."
Another favourite target, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, got both barrells from Piers too, with him calling them "staggeringly entitled" for jetting to Hollywood to search for homes during the coronavirus crisis.
Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian also earned a stinging rebuke each, for reigniting their ancient feud while the world faced an unprecedented health emergency.
He told The Sun yesterday: "No one gives a rat’s ar*e about Kim’s latest barbs with Taylor. These people should be using their platforms to raise awareness about health workers and the importance of staying at home, not for their own gain."
Even Gwyneth Paltrow found herself being blasted for putting on a face mask while flying to Paris and joking it was like her 2011 movie Contagion.
Piers failed to see the funny side, insisting the drama raging around the world was "very damn real".
