Piers Morgan has made a career out of trolling on social media. And on Sunday, Morgan had some inflammatory words about Muhammad Ali that didn’t sit well with anyone.
“Muhammad Ali said far more inflammatory/racist things about white people than Donald Trump ever has about Muslims #fact,” Morgan wrote on Twitter Sunday morning.
Of course, no one was feeling the comparison, especially since it came days after Ali’s death.
Once Morgan realized that once again he was public enemy No. 1, he offered that people should not rush to sugarcoat his own life when he is dead and gone. John Legend offered some well-needed advice to Morgan.
Morgan attempted to defend his comments on Monday’s Good Morning Britain.
“There was another side to Ali; he was incredibly controversial,” Morgan stated.
“His preferred world is segregated. Black people living with black people, white people living with white people,” he continued.
Morgan eventually apologized for his original tweet, but something tells me he’s not at all sorry.
“I’m sorry for ‘saying inflammatory things for attention.’ That’s the last thing Muhammad Ali would have condoned,” he wrote.
