Piers Morgan has attacked abandonment culture around the world, sensationally calling it ‘as dangerous as Covid’.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter, 56, will return to the small screen later this month, condemning the world’s current break-up culture.
The outspoken journalist explained how he wants his new show to help “undo the cancellations of the canceled.”
Speak with metroHe said, “Basically what I want to point out is that the abort culture, in its own way, is just as dangerous to society in terms of its attack on freedom of expression as the coronavirus.”
He continued: “It could get more dangerous in the years and decades to come. I think when a democracy like ours or America or Australia where this show is airing loses what free speech means and stops defending the right of an individual to have an opinion, you’re not a democracy.”
And he insisted his new show would be used to advocate for democracy.
Piers previously hinted that his goal for his new show is to “annoy all the right people.”
The hour-long show will include opinion segments as well as debates and interviews.
Piers also went out to claim his departure from the ITV morning show following his comments about Meghan Markle was a “farce”.
He left the show after storming off the set after saying he didn’t believe Meghan’s claims from her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
His comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints, the most in Ofcom’s history.
Piers continued: “I thought the whole thing was a sham and I’m delighted that indeed as a result of the sham we have a whole network now committed to preventing this type of sham from happening again.
“You shouldn’t be shamed or slandered or removed for having an opinion unless you’re really spouting hateful, bigoted stuff.”
Piers is joined on TalkTV by the likes of Sharon Osbourne and Tom Newton Dunn.
His new global show Uncensored will premiere on April 25 at 8pm and will also air on Fox Nation in the US and Sky News Australia.
Piers has also reignited his feud with Dan Walker prior to the presenter’s move to Channel 5.
Dan, who has hosted BBC Breakfast since 2016, is coming to 5 News later this year, replacing Sian Williams.
Asked about their rivalry, Piers snapped: “Dan who? Hasn’t he gone to Channel 5 or something.
