It's very rare when Piers Morgan isn't making headlines for his bold and often outrageous comments. Usually, Morgan's tantrums are targetted towards one person, in particular... take his vendetta against Meghan Markle, for instance.
But this time, he's decided to direct his anger at twenty other people too in a list titled "cov-idiots" and you know what? We actually agree with him for once! Wow, this is quite revolutionary in itself.
Stick with me as we count down his top 20 picks...
Piers Morgan does not hold back.
via: Getty ImagesYou know that filter that most of us try and implement while we're talking? Well, it seems as though the former TV judge just doesn't have that and because he is lacking, he always seems to find himself offending the masses.
Whether it be ranting about Meghan Markle, or mocking an entire nation...
via: Getty ImagesIt seems as though Morgan always finds one thing or another to latch on to so that he can spread some "well-informed" trash to audiences around the world.
However, recently, he's become somewhat of a hero.
via: Getty ImagesYes, you read that right. The day time TV host has given up his crown of terror and swapped it out for a cape instead.
While the coronavirus continues to infect our world, Morgan has taken it upon himself to call out injustice when he sees it.Besides this "all-star" list, which we will get into in a minute, he has decided to do a public service by asking his followers if they have unfairly been let go by their employers so that he can help them...
...Even if that does mean just calling them out for his millions of followers to see.
Rather than attack the police for taking action to enforce life-saving social distancing, can we focus instead on a… https://t.co/022fSXkCSB— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan)1585587139.0
And we can't forget about his coveted list, can we?
via: Getty ImagesRecently, he published a list in which he named the top twenty nominees for the unofficial title of the "Cov-Idiot." And it's actually hilarious to see how many famous faces it includes, but all of them are on there for very specific reasons as you'll see.
And weirdly enough... I agree with Morgan.
via: Getty ImagesThis is not a statement I would willingly admit, but hey, when you're right, you're right. Let's start the count down.
20. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
via: Getty ImagesSurprisingly, Megan Markle and Prince Harry sit comfortably on the twenty spot? With the way Morgan rants about this pair, I thought they would easily claim the throne on the list, but it seems as if other people have annoyed the TV host more.
Meghan and Harry have been involved in many scandals recently.
And Morgan had no shame in calling them out for it.
via: Getty ImagesHe wrote: "As British royals like the Queen and Prince William have risen to the crisis and been comforting faces and voices for people less fortunate, Meghan and Harry flew in a private jet to Hollywood to look round potential $20 million Malibu homes, whilst posting their best wishes to UK health workers ‘from across the pond.’ I don’t want to hear another word from this staggeringly entitled duo for the duration of this crisis."
19. Gwyneth Paltrow.
via: InstagramPaltrow recently received a flurry of hate for her careless selfie. The actress posted a picture of herself wearing a mask and captioned it, "I've already been in this movie." Yikes...
After referring to her mask as "silly", he made sure to deflate her particularly large head:
via: Getty Images"This is not a bloody movie, Ms. Paltrow, this is very damn real."
18. Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift.
via: Getty ImagesRemember just a few weeks ago when someone (probably Kris Jenner) leaked the actual phonecall that "ended" Swift's career back in 2016? We were all transported back 4 years for a few minutes to correct the narrative.
However, according to Morgan, it was irrelevant.
via: Getty ImagesHe wrote that "[no one] gives a rat’s a*se about their historically petty feud right now. We [really] don’t so shut up the pair of you."
I found it pretty entertaining, to be honest...
.@taylorswift13 has chosen to reignite an old exchange - that at this point in time feels very self-serving given t… https://t.co/NiUAqjM5d5— Kim Kardashian West (@Kim Kardashian West)1585022275.0
17. Elon Musk.
The coronavirus panic is dumb— Elon Musk (@Elon Musk)1583527359.0
No Musk... It's COVID-19.
via: Getty ImagesPiers had some savage words for the billionaire, writing, "...What’s ‘dumb’ is an arrogant, ill-informed billionaire complacently dismissing very real and fully justified concerns over a deadly virus destroying lives and economies all over the world."
16. Evangeline Lilly.
via: Getty ImagesWhere do I even start with this delusional woman?
Lilly thought it would be a good idea to be selfish during this pandemic.
Yes, even from Morgan...
via: Getty ImagesAfter she continued, writing, "Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over lives. We all make our choices", Morgan snapped back saying: "Yes, and some people clearly value shamefully selfish stupidity over common sense, don’t they Evangeline?"
15. Jaime King.
via: Getty ImagesThe number fifteen spot was claimed by Jaime King who "...Thanked coronavirus. No, seriously, that is exactly what she did – posting a photo of the virus with the caption ‘Thank you for shaking us and showing us.’ What the flying f***????? It’s shaking us into ICU beds and showing us how to die, you imbecile." I'm glad someone else said it.
via: Getty ImagesRapper and producer Drake finds himself at number fourteen for his "relatable" post.
Spoiler Alert: It was not relatable at all.
via: Instagram"Drake was keen to show us the harsh limitations of his own self-isolation, posting a video to Instagram of his private full-size basketball court inside his mansion with the words: ‘My life for the next however long. Very relatable, I’m sure, to a family of ten living in a tiny home in the projects." Re-think your idea of relatable, please.
13. David Geffen.
via: Getty ImagesAnother entitled billionaire? Of course. Geffen thought it would be touching to tell us how he plans on self-isolating... And no, it didn't involve staying in a house, that's for sure.
And Morgan had some not-so-kind words for his "struggles."
"Well, we're trying, Dave..."
via: Getty Images"...But unfortunately, most people don’t have a $590 million bloody yacht to hide on. If you really want us to ‘stay safe’, maybe sell your yacht and give the proceeds to those who can’t afford to protect or feed themselves?"
12. Jared Leto.
via: Getty ImagesI used to think Leto was so cool until he proved himself to be an actual idiot.
Here's Morgan explaining why:
via: Getty ImagesThey always say "music has the power to heal"... But I've never heard anyone say "music has the power to eradicate a disease that is killing thousands of people around the world", have you?
Well, Bono tried to pull that latter statement and it didn't go down well...
via: Getty Images"Bono always means well, but he came out of the traps with what many saw as indecent speed to release a ballad for the people of Italy entitled ‘Let Your Love Be Known’ and urged Italians to ‘sing it from the rooftops.’ As one critic responded acidly: ‘Haven’t they suffered enough?’"
10. Vanessa Hudgens.
via: Getty ImagesThe number 10 spot was claimed by none other than the woman who destroyed her illustrious career with one Livestream... Oh, this one was bad.
This is what Piers Morgan had to say about her.
vanessa hudgens got that vid of her being ignorant abt corona deleted.... we got u on tape ma’am ! https://t.co/nKScrn90xQ— ʚɞ (@ʚɞ)1584481155.0
9. Sam Smith.
via: GettyThis is the only one that I think placed too high for the situations. There have been bigger idiots during this pandemic than Sam Smith, but hey, it ain't my list.
It seems as though Morgan has more of a personal problem with Smith...
8. Cardi B.
via: Getty ImagesIn some instances, Cardi B is actually very relatable, but not according to Piers Morgan.
He wrote this about her corona-antics:
7. Idris Elba.
via: gettyAgain, the top 10 is a little questionable but see if you agree with Morgan's reason as to why Elba ranked so highly.
It was all because of one certain video...
via: Twitter"Idris Elba, who thought he was doing the right thing when he released a video revealing he had tested positive for the virus - and urged others to stay safe. The problem was that in doing so, he exposed how wrong it is that celebrities like him are getting expensive private tests when most health care workers can’t."
He continued writing:
via: getty"The furor this sparked was exacerbated when his wife Sabrina posted about having her own test several days later." Sadly, this seems to be a problem with many celebrities like Elba.
via: gettyYes, in general. Anyone that went out to 'party", even while they were advised not to, I'm talking to you.
And so is Morgan:
via: Getty Images"Spring-Breakers who flocked to the beaches in Florida, ignoring all advice not to, infecting each other and then returning home to infect and possibly kill their elderly relatives. I don’t know what the collective word is for a very large group of selfish, reckless morons, but shall we go with Covidiots?"
5. Boris Johnson.
via: getty ImagesNow here's one I can definitely get behind. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has been nothing short of stupid during this pandemic and here's the proof...
Remember when he gushed about "shaking hands with everybody?" Idiot.
Thanks to everyone who has been staying at home. By delaying the spread of the disease we can reduce the pressure… https://t.co/GXLPPHGL5z— Boris Johnson (@Boris Johnson)1585508554.0
4. Donald Trump.
via: GettyIn a shocking turn of events, we see that one of his former "inspirations" has landed himself in the top 5 "Covid-idiots."
This is why:
via: getty"President Trump, who decided yesterday was a good day to boast about his Bachelor-finale-level TV ratings, and then hand out pens to his top aides as they stood two inches from each other in the Oval Office. Trump needs to socially distance himself from such diabolically delusional and dangerous behavior – fast."
3. The Colvin Brothers.
via: TwitterAs Morgan refers to them, the "douchbags" that hoarded thousands of sanitizers in their garage.
And he didn't sugarcoat this one at all...
via: Getty images"Those douchebag Colvin brothers in Tennessee who drove around the state stockpiling 17,000 bottles of hand sanitizer, then were banned from selling them online. The selfish, greedy berks need their brains sanitizing if it can be established that they have any."
via: InstagramI never thought I'd see the day Madonna emerging from milky water with a face full of make-up and referring to a global virus as "the great equalizer." God, these celebs are so out of touch with reality, it's unreal.
And I'm glad Morgan wrote this:
via: getty"Yeah, right. I would imagine those candles alone could feed a health worker for six months. As for the rose petals, we can only hope and pray they don’t clog up her pipes and require a plumber to break off from vital emergency virus-related work to fix it."
1. Gal Gadot.
via: gettyCelebrities and their methods to "raise awareness', "fix problems" and "spread joy" is what is wrong with the world. "Wonder woman star Gal Gadot and her toe-curling celebrity accomplices on that diabolical "Imagine" video. It was supposed to be the self-isolating version of We Are The World but rapidly became a We Are Being Mocked By The World abomination."
