Piers Morgan faced backlash over his commentary regarding Meghan Markle and her interview with Oprah Winfrey. It was reported that an executive at ITV was talking to Piers Morgan about things he says regarding Meghan Markle, especially of late after that Oprah interview.

Piers later took some backlash over his comments and now he literally quit the show.

The Daily Beast had some minor details about Piers Morgan quitting the ITV show, but it's a developing story.

Hours after storming off the Good Morning Britain set amid his hissyfit over Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, Piers Morgan has quit the program, ITV said on Tuesday.

“Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain,” the British network said in a terse statement. “ITV has accepted this decision and as nothing further to add.”

Where did all this drama come from?

Piers Morgan was critical of Markle, like he has been in the past, and he took some heat for it.

Reuters added the following:

Morgan has cast doubt on Meghan’s comments in the interview. When his co-presenter noted that Meghan had said she’d been driven to the verge of taking her own life, Morgan replied: “She says that, yes.”

McCall, who was presenting ITV’s full-year results, said Morgan had “qualified” his earlier comments.

Morgan said on Tuesday: “I still have serious concerns about the veracity of a lot of what she said, but let me just state for the record about my position on mental illness and on suicide.

“They should be taken extremely seriously and if someone is feeling that way they should get the treatment and help that they need every time, and if they belong to an institution like the royal family and they go and seek that help they should absolutely be given it,” he said.

McCall said Morgan was a freelance presenter and ITV had no control over his Twitter account, which has 7.7 million followers.

Was Piers Morgan asked to quit? Or did he quit on his own because he's not going to let any network get on his back about criticizing public figures?

I don't know about you, but I am so sick of hearing about Harry and Meghan and could not care less about either of them.

Imagine being Meghan Markle and everyone is sick and tired of hearing your name. I feel bad for Harry and the royal family.
