British-born Nigerian South London activist and author Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu has earned global recognition following her intense argument famous British TV presenter, Piers Morgan during a recent Good Morning Britain appearance.
While talking about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview by Oprah Winfrey on Good Morning Britain, Shola took on Piers and schooled him each time he attempted to paint Meghan in a negative light.
In his response to the timing of the Oprah interview, Piers said: “I think it’s piling hurt on the Queen who is already suffering greatly from her husband’s illness.”
Piers immediate hostile reaction reflects how the UK media treated Meghan during her time as part of the Royal family. As far as the UK media is concerned, Meghan should be blamed for anything that happens and whatever Meghan does, is done with malicious intent.
While responding to Piers’ statement, Shola said: “You constantly use your platform as a wealthy, white privileged man, with power to influence, to aggravate and escalate the bigoted, sexist, racist, and misogynist attacks on Meghan Markle.”
Shola countered as Piers labeled it “race-baiting nonsense.” Piers kept on getting louder throughout Shola’s appearance and tried to subdue her as she tried to get her point across. Shola did not give in and said: “What kind of grandmother would be so close to her grandson, Harry, but then not use her power and influence as Queen to protect them from the racist media coverage.”
While schooling Piers, Shola said: ” Listen. You might learn something. The royal family, as an institution, is rooted, listen you might learn something, is rooted in colonialism, white supremacy, and racism. The legacy is right there. So you’re now surprised that comments would be made by the royal family about how dark Archie’s skin is?”
Piers acted like he wasn’t listening and tried to cut Shola off because what she was saying didn’t go well with him.
Shola later tweeted about her experience during the show and said: “The Queen is not above reproach. She & the Royal Family are neither faultless or perfect. They have a case to answer for the failure to support #HarryandMeghan from racism/ hate media which led to them stepping back royal duties.”
Also, she called out Piers for his double-standard as far as covering Harry and Meghan is concerned and using certain media titles to portray the narrative he wanted to.
She tweeted: “Piers didn’t like me calling him a liar and disgrace for using coverage of paper headlines of #MeghanAndHarry Engagement and Wedding while conveniently ignoring the headlines BEFORE the Engagement and BETWEEN it and the Wedding.”
