Piers Morgan is once again sounding off on Meghan Markle, this time accusing her being “shamelessly hypocritical” for agreeing to guest-edit the September issue of British Vogue. But the cantankerous British TV show host may have met his match when he went on to diss the duchess for including Jameela Jamil among the 15 “world-changing women” featured on the magazine’s cover.
Morgan moaned that Meghan’s “heroine” Jamil had made negative comments about stars like Rihanna and Beyoncé in the past, suggesting that made her unsuitable for the British Vogue honor.
*NEW: One of Meghan's 'kind & inspiring' female-empowering Vogue 'heroines' is @jameelajamil - who called @Beyonce a 'stripper', said @MileyCyrus was a 'vagina with no platform' & told @Rihanna to 'put your m*nge away.' https://t.co/u5A652tz7y pic.twitter.com/kj8U9Rn5YC— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 29, 2019
The outspoken Good Place actress and activist fired back, calling Morgan — who has carved out his own reputation for picking on female celebrities — the “just the thirstiest b***h alive” on Twitter.
Jamil also acknowledged her past “problematic” comments, citing her pinned tweet, which reads, in part, “I used to be slut-shamey, judgmental and my feminism wasn’t intersectional enough.” But while the British star says she’s learned from her “mistakes,” Morgan continues to lash out.
“My pinned tweet is all of the mistakes I made, owning up to being problematic when I was young,” she tweeted at Morgan. “I have nothing to hide. You are old, and still a problematic slut-shaming, fat-shaming, misogynist, irrelevant s**t stain, smeared across our country.”
Morgan responded to the dig by mocking Jamil’s support from Meghan, whom he recently told to “go back to America” over reports that she’s concerned about maintaining privacy as a royal.

Some Morgan followers agreed with him, insulting Meghan as a “wokewitch,” “an embarrassment” and a “stain on the royal family.” One fan even sparked outrage by tweeting a death threat aimed at the duchess.
This sort of person feeds off you Piers. You are the disgrace, not Meghan.— Samara vT (@Sammygirlrox) July 30, 2019
But many were supporting Jamil and Meghan and accused Morgan of bullying behavior.

I guess the inverted commas mean you don't approve. Why, I have no idea as @jameelajamil is a force for good amongst the tirade of sewage spewed by most people on here— Duncan Stripp (@DuncanStripp) July 30, 2019
@jameelajamil nailed it! To be fair, perhaps you should post the precursor to her her tweet. Your bullying is becoming out of control. It will come back to bite you. Mark my words. Power in the wrong hands is a very dangerous thing.— Samara vT (@Sammygirlrox) July 30, 2019
She’s declared her youthful mistakes & apologised. You’ve never fully admitted all your adulthood mistakes, which have ruined lives. You still continue to make mistakes daily, predominately picking on young, successful, beautiful women. Maybe it’s time for a mirror Piers! 👹— Haze (@haze2003purple) July 30, 2019
The Meghan-edited issue of British Vogue also includes an interview with former first lady Michelle Obama as well as a piece in which Prince Harry calls out the “unconscious bias” he sees when people discuss race.
