Piers Morgan blasts ‘distasteful’ TV hosts for mocking Kate after health update

Date:

Piers Morgan shared his fury over some people’s attitudes towards Kate, the Princess of Wales following this evening’s announcement. The TalkTV broadcaster took to X, formerly known as Twitter to exclaim to his 8.7 million followers: “The way certain American talk show hosts like @StephenAtHome mocked the Princess of Wales over her marriage in recent weeks now looks especially distasteful.”

He was referring to an American comedian who decided to make the Princess a figure of fun following her photo editing backlash earlier this month. He also poked fun at the online speculation about Kate. Express.co.uk has approached representatives for Stephen Colbert for comment.

Meanwhile, Piers, who’d shared the news of Kate’s cancer on Twitter just six minutes after her video statement went public, also reposted a comment describing her as “pure class”.

“Stephen Colbert needs to retire,” one follower quipped in response. “It was always distasteful to comment on things [when] the family chose to maintain privacy,” another exclaimed.

“Now the misinformation machine needs to be outed and made an example of. Enough is enough.” Another follower called for everyone to stop “hounding the family”, describing the actions of some as “simply astonishing and beneath journalistic and human integrity.”

Stephen Colbert isn’t the only US celebrity to have seemingly poked fun at the senior royal in recent days, or made light of her situation.

Kim Kardashian was warned to “stay in her lane” after she published a series of Instagram pictures with the caption: “On my way to go find Kate.”

It came after Kate apologised for editing a photograph with her three children on Mother’s Day that was posted online

Not everyone supported Piers, however, with one follower griping: “Dude.. you stoked the fires just as bad.”

And while some branded Stephen “disgraceful”, one follower attempted to make light of his words, reasoning: “Chill it, man! He is a comedian!”

Kate announced this evening that she is undergoing “preventative chemotherapy” after cancer cells were discovered following a successful abdominal operation.

The Princess says she is now fully focused on recovery, explaining: “My work has always brought me a deep sense of joy and I look forward to being back when I am able.”
