Piers Morgan is to give his first on-camera interview since he was sensationally fired from his show “Good Morning Britain” over comments he made about Meghan Markle.
Morgan drew heat after he said he doubted Markle’s claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey that she was suicidal during her stint in the Royal family and that some of the Royals are racist.
Morgan is to sit down with Fox News host, Tucker Carlson on Monday night.
‘Tucker Carlson tonight’ is the number one top rated news show in the USA, constantly drawing in over 4.3 million viewers in his time-slot.
“How is it that the most privileged in our society get to pose as the most oppressed?,” Carlson told the NY Post when asked why he thought the interview is an important one, “Piers Morgan dared to ask that question, and they hurt him for it.”
The hour-long chat will appear on his “Tucker Carlson Today” show on streaming platform Fox Nation and portions of it will appear on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Morgan, 56, has claimed that he was fired from the British morning show because he refused to apologize for his views about Markle.
“Those of you that know me well enough know that, despite my many faults, I’m always willing to stand my ground for the things that I think matter most,” he wrote on social media.
He claimed that his opposition to the Iraq War and views on American gun laws had cost him jobs at Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper and CNN.
“And now I’ve lost my job at Good Morning Britain because I chose not to apologise for disbelieving Meghan Markle’s claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, sources told Page Six that Morgan isn’t bothered by the commotion of the drama and “thrives on the uproar.”
