Piers Morgan’s Meghan Markle Rant Draws Highest Number Of Complaints In UK Television History

Piers Morgan’s comments about Meghan Markle on Good Morning Britain last week have officially become the most complained about moment in British television history, according to the UK media regulator.

Ofcom revealed on Wednesday that 57,121 complaints have been made about the show, in which Morgan questioned if Markle was being genuine in saying she felt suicidal during a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey last week.

That’s up from 41,000 last week, and puts it above an episode of Celebrity Big Brother in Ofcom’s hall of shame. Some 44,500 complained about the Big Brother episode in 2007, when Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty was targeted by Jade Goody and Danielle Lloyd.

Ofcom announced last week that it is investigating Good Morning Britain to establish whether Morgan broke the UK broadcasting code. Morgan himself resigned last Tuesday after he refused to apologize for his remarks.
