PIERS MORGAN and his son have allegedly been verbally abused by a woman who branded the pair “revolting people” while out for a walk.
The TV presenter’s son, Spencer Morgan, revealed that they were yelled at following his dad’s outspoken criticism of Meghan Markle.
The former Good Morning Britain host stepped down from his role with the show after facing criticism over his comments related to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
During the chat, Markle revealed to the US talk show veteran that she was left feeling suicidal during her time as part of the Royal Family.
However, Morgan disputed those claims in a series of remarks made on GMB and via Twitter.
Those comments prompted a raft of complaints, including one from Meghan Markle. Morgan quit the show this week after refusing to apologise live on air.
Writing on Twitter, Spencer said his dad had received an incredible amount of support from members of the public in the street while they were out for a walk in London.
However, he also revealed that the pair were also confronted by a “woke Karen” who berated the pair.
The 27-year-old said: "Wow. Just went on one of them lame Covid walks with @piersmorgan.
"The level of public support on the street was actually mind-blowing. The social media bubble is fake. Team Piers is real. And it’s huge."
He continued: "Admittedly one dumba** woke Karen did walk past and say ‘you revolting people’ as two couples were praising him haha."

Despite facing criticism from mental health organisations over his response to Markle’s claims, Morgan has so far refused to back down.
Following his departure from GMB, Morgan wrote on Twitter: "On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview.
"I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK.
"Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions."
Though Piers Morgan was born in Surrey his late father, Vincent Eamonn O’Meara, was a dentist from Galway.
Christened Piers Stefan O’Meara, Morgan sadly lost his dad at a young age.
His mother later married Welsh publican Glynne Pughe-Morgan, with Piers going on to take his stepfather’s surname.
