Piers Morgan Slammed By Mind Over Meghan Markle Suicidal Comments – Deadline

Benny told Politicalite: “Piers saying that he doesn’t believe Meghan is telling the truth about her suicidal thoughts is the reason so many people suffer in silence.” 

“Why was Piers Morgan even allowed to go on Good Morning Britain again this morning?” 

“He should be suspended right away with the comments he made against Meghan, this is why nobody takes mental health seriously.” 

He slammed ITV and said if Brits agree with what Morgan had to say about Meghan and her suicidal thoughts then just know your going to stop your friends and family ever coming to you for help.”

Benny was blocked by Morgan on Twitter after defending Meghan Markle and highlighting the effects Morgan’s comments could have on ITV viewers who are not in the public eye and may need help, but could be put off due to the out-dated stigma echoed by Morgan.

Responding to Benny, an ITV spokesperson told Politicalite: “ITV is committed to mental health and wellbeing and working with our charity partners on Britain Get Talking, which is about encouraging people to talk about their mental health.”

“It is very important that if anyone has suicidal thoughts that they should always speak out and be listened to.”

“You’ve convinced yourself just because she’s rich and famous that she’s not a person, and in doing so, have forsaken your own empathy.”

Another said: “Piers Morgan having a platform to say disgustingly insensitive things that could be dangerous to the mental health of millions of people: NO”

Another added: “I’ve never complained about anyone, pretty much ever, but hearing #PiersMorgan claim someone having suicidal thoughts was a lie.Nah.That got me. He’s lucky he’s never been there. My #Ofcom complaint has been submitted. No one deserves dissmisal on that point nomatter who they are.”
