Piers Morgan Makes Fun of India's Olympic Heroes; Gets Slammed

Piers Morgan Makes Fun of India's Olympic Heroes; Gets Slammed

Tears for Piers

Internationally acclaimed journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan found himself at the receiving end of a lot of criticism (well, there were more expletives than any kind of constructive criticism to be fair) after yet another insensitive low-blow-ish comment he made.

Morgan, who is well known for saying controversial stuff shamed India for celebrating it's meagre olympic medal tally. In his tweet today Morgan said "Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?"

Morgan's tweet was citisized by almost everyone in his replies. He was pointed out the fact that population had no correlation whatsoever with the number of medals a country might win. He was made aware of the irony of England's rather abysmal performance in cricket, considering the fact that they were the ones who created the sport.

Whatever may it be, the replies were entertaining to say the least:

This common-sense fueled rebuttal

This important life-hack

These nuclear burns

This serious allegation

This genuine question

This on-point observation

This totally is like that one time Piers Morgan tried bat to Brett Lee and failed massively.

In fact, Morgan got trolled so much, he tried to redeem himself with this rather vanilla attempt at humour.

Sigh.
