Piers Morgan ruined on Twitter by teenage cancer patient


Share This Article:

Britain was able to enjoy a much-needed break last week as professional wind-up Piers Morgan took some time off presenting Good Morning Britain.

However, this relief was short lived when Morgan returned as obnoxious as ever, taking to Twitter to boast about his manliness.

Morgan wrote ‘UPDATE: I'll be co-hosting @GMB tomorrow with 3 broken ribs. For the more fragile snowflakes among you, this is called 'manning up' - sparking some serious backlash.

Many took the bait, responding to the tweet with examples of their own bravery, knocking Morgan’s little ailment out the park.

American long distance runner Dane Rauschenberg, who once ran a marathon with a separated shoulder, was among those responding, telling Morgan to ‘F*** off with your ‘sitting and talking’’.


While these responses made for great reading, one stood out among them all. Helen Birch, a 19-year-old student from London, hit back at Morgan with the monumental tweet;



What followed was a multitude of responders with similar issues, thus creating an amazingly inspirational thread.

From a woman who went through a whole work day in labour to a Cambridge grad who was once told she could never be a doctor due to her mental health, the motivational list is endless.

Even Morgan's co-presenter Susanna Reid got involved:

When asked why she chose to tweet, Birch replied ‘My point was that he’s acting like a hero for doing exactly what anyone else would be expected to do without complaining’.
