‘ENTITLED ARROGANCE’: Piers Morgan Blasts Prince Harry After First Amendment Scoff


Celebrity television personality Piers Morgan blasted Prince Harry for his First Amendment criticism in a recent Daily Mail op-ed, referring to it as “entitled arrogance.” 

“Like so much of the absurd Meghan-inspired psychobabble that spews out of [Harry’s] mouth, none of this makes any sense, and he clearly doesn’t understand what he’s saying either,” Morgan wrote. 

If you aren’t familiar with the story, during an appearance on Dax Shepard’s podcast “The Armchair Expert,” Prince Harry called the First Amendment to the United States Constitution “bonkers.” 

“I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,” Harry said, as reported by Human Events. 

Morgan continued to point out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s continuous fight with the British media. 

“Though we can safely assume that he just hates anything which affords any protection to journalists to say things he doesn’t like because that has been a familiar theme from the indignant media-loathing Prince for the last few years,” Morgan wrote in his op-ed. “It’s the same mindset that makes Meghan think she can complain to the bosses of TV networks when presenters like me refuse to believe her lies – and have them removed from their jobs if we don’t apologize for our impertinence.” 

“All that Americans will take away from Harry’s outburst about the First Amendment is a posh, privileged British royal slamming their Constitution and their unalienable rights to freedom of speech and expression,” Morgan continued. “It takes an extraordinary amount of entitled arrogance to mock the most revered building block of your adopted country’s history.”
