AIBU to expect Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson to stop having a go at Prince Harry and Meghan. To me their behaviour and the continual reporting in the press of their various obnoxious statements smacks of bullying.

They are two of a kind ....big headed arrogant bullies I can’t bear to see either of them hideous men disgraceful behaviour

It’s not unreasonable to wish their comments were not given prominence in the press or the media. I know nothing about anything they say because I don’t watch if they’re on. It’s the only way to avoid it.

Yes you are being unreasonable. They are obnoxious people I wouldn't expect anything else from them.

Jaxjacky Sun 04-Apr-21 13:16:18

I haven’t seen any of it since the incident of Piers walking off a TV programme which was widely reported.

JaneJudge Sun 04-Apr-21 13:21:13

I wonder how many complaints JC actually got last night? shock

As much as they may be disliked, they are allowed their opinion as many Gransnetters have theirs.
Free speech and all that.
IMO.

Here’s a piece of advice to help you stop getting angry.
Stop watching, listening, reading anything from the above.
It’s not difficult.

What MerylStreep said.

I was only aware that PM and JC were having a go because I read it on GN!

Was JC whingeing about them on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? I wasn't aware he was on any other programme.
And PM has gone into the blue yonder hasn't he?

I have only watched Morgan once , he interviewed Rupert Everett. Didn’t know Clarkson had a new programme so watched it after reading the O/P.

One joke about Meg, what about the jokes about Matt Baker, went on for ages and about others .

maddyone Mon 05-Apr-21 17:15:44

Yes, you’re being unreasonable. Don’t watch, read, or listen to anything they say and then you won’t be upset. I think that’s what most people do.

eazybee Mon 05-Apr-21 17:25:28

Perhaps they are trying to provoke MM into suing them.

suziewoozie Mon 05-Apr-21 17:30:03

They are two willy waving men probably with not much to wave. I only hear about them second hand and that’s too much. Yuk.

Ngaio1 Mon 05-Apr-21 17:30:52

At least they were trying to defend our Queen.

Anniebach Mon 05-Apr-21 17:33:47

Has Clarkson said anything about her before that programme ?

N4n4 Mon 05-Apr-21 17:35:10

I'm with suziewoozie!

BlueBelle Mon 05-Apr-21 18:02:07

Yes that’s it suziewoozie never watch anything Clarkson is on and haven’t seen the other one since he did his flounce
Oh my word ngaiol that’s a laugh 😂

She must be in a bad way if she needs these two to defend her 😂

Piers Morgan has simply stated his opinion that he doesn’t believe a word of Meghan’s nasty spiteful accusations of the Royal family in the Winfrey ‘interview’

A great number of us completely agree with him.

‘Simply stated’ 😂😂😂😂😂Over and over and over again because she didn’t fancy him - that’s what willy wavers do when their ‘charms’ are rejected. Poor little man. 🙄

BlueBelle Mon 05-Apr-21 18:36:36

And judging by the complaints an even greater number don’t agree jennifereccles
I m sure if he’d ‘just’ given an opinion no one would have thought twice but when you shout down everyone in a loud and very aggressive manner constantly, it just shows a very unattractive side and didn’t clarkson once clock someone who disagreed with him both loud ignorant bullies

Anniebach Mon 05-Apr-21 18:46:14

There was 41,000 complaints , is that a greater number ?

grannyrebel7 Mon 05-Apr-21 18:56:31

I agree with you Jennifer Eccles Piers is entitled to say he didn't believe MM and he has a right to express his opinion. I like Piers, ok I know he's an ego on legs, but he didn't used to take any waffling from the politicians and wasn't afraid to say exactly what he thought. I like people who are straight. As for Clarkson, I'm afraid I can't defend him!
