MANCHESTER ATTACK UPDATE: Piers Morgan has criticised Ariana Grande for returning immediately to Florida following the suicide bombing at her concert rather than stay back and sympathise with her fans who were injured or lost family members.
He expressed his opinion after singer Katy Perry praised Queen Elizabeth for visiting the injured kids yesterday at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. Katy wrote on Twitter :
“God bless The Queen and her kind heart.”
And Piers replied: “Agreed. Might have been nice if @ArianaGrande had stayed to do the same.”
Piers’ tweet sparked immediate outrage, with one social media user telling him he had to apologize for his statement.
“Spectacularly ill thought out, that deserves a rethink, retraction and an apology,” BristolSteve tweeted.
But Piers remained adamant, replying: “If the Queen can visit the victims in hospital, so can the star they paid to see.”
He added: “I can 100 per cent guarantee you I would stay and visit those who had been killed or wounded watching me perform.”
Some people agreed with Piers Morgan while some were against him, telling him that people grieve in different ways. Do you think Piers was right?
