Meghan was one of more than 40,000 people to complain about Piers Morgans rants against her.
When Meghan Markle sat down to drop truth-bombs with Oprah Winfrey, she was aiming them at the royal family. The fact that the fallout cost her most relentless and petulant critic his job is just welcome collateral damage.
Now, it seems she may have had a direct hand in Piers Morgans ejection from the flagship breakfast show Good Morning Britain.
It was reported today by Chris Ship, ITVs royal correspondent, that Meghan formally filed a complaint to ITV, the network which broadcasts the show, on Monday, after Morgan rubbished Meghans claims as untrue.
Morgan was fired from the show on Tuesday, hours after a flaming on-air row with the shows weatherman, Alex Beresford, who said Morgans rants against Meghan were diabolical. Morgan subsequently stormed off the set.
However, the timing of Meghans complaint suggests she was objecting to Morgans remarks on Monday, when he said, Im sorry, I dont believe a word she says... I wouldnt believe her if she read me a weather report.
Mental health advocates and critics were outraged at his suggestion that Meghans experiences about having suicidal thoughts were fabricated.
On Tuesday, Morgan sought to dial down the controversy a little after returning to set, saying that he believed mental illness and suicide are topics that should be taken extremely seriously. But he maintained he had serious concerns about the veracity of a lot of what [Meghan] said.
It has been reported that over 40,000 complaints were filed over his remarks, one of which was sent on Meghans behalf.
He wrote, On Monday, I said I didnt believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. Ive had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still dont. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill Im happy to die on. He said he was off to spend more time with my opinions and appended a Winston Churchill quote about free speech.
Speaking outside his home, he told Sky News that his departure had been amicable and said, I had a good chat with ITV and we agreed to disagree. He said he would enter a temporary hibernation and was always in talks with people about other job opportunities.
