Taking to Twitter, Piers said some celebrities are using the current global situation as content for their social media accounts.
Retweeting a link to an article about Sam Smith, Piers Morgan wrote: 'FFS. I can't take any more of this celebrity attention-seeking bullsh*t. 'Get a grip, the lot of you. 'This is a war, not an Instagram story op.' Sam Smith wasn't the only celebrity Piers Morgan took aim at as he criticised a number of celebrities for taking part in a video. The video showed celebrities such as Gal Gadot, Jamie Dornan and Jimmy Fallon singing Imagine by John Lennon. Retweeting a post calling the video 'moving', Piers disagreed with the assessment. Moving? The only thing it's 'moved' is the entire world to realise there's something even worse than Coronavirus. — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 19, 2020 This isn't the first time Piers Morgan has publicly fought with Sam Smith. After Sam came out as non-binary and confirmed they would be using the pronouns they and them, Piers blamed the singer for the Brit Awards axing male and female categories. Piers said: 'I think it's great that so much time on awards should be wrecked like this because one guy can't decide if he's male or female. 'They want to accommodate non-binary performers like Sam Smith, which is what I said last week, which category will be now enter? 'He won't have to, he'll now enter the non-binary categories.' Piers went on to say that scrapping gender categories will negatively impact female performers as he believes men will win the bulk of the awards.
