Piers Morgan Slams Ariana Grande For Not Visiting Fans After Manchester Bombing
Just days after his Twitter spat with Lily Allen, Piers Morgan has taken to the social media website once again.
This time it is to criticise the pop singer Ariana Grande for not remaining in Manchester after the bomb attack.
On Monday night, shortly after she finished performing at the Manchester Arena, a bomb went off and took the lives of 22 people and injured numerous other people.
Just hours after the suicide bomber attack, Ariana left the country, flying back to the US.
Flying into Florida with her mother, Grande, 23, was met by her boyfriend Mac Miller.
Ariana and her team have also announced that the rest of her tour dates have been cancelled.
Piers’ comments come after Katy Perry tweeted a message of support. The ‘I Kissed A Girl’ singer praised the queen for visiting the victims of the attack.
The pop singer wrote: “God bless The Queen and her kind heart.”
Good Morning Britain host, Piers was quick to respond saying “Agreed. Might have been nice if @ArianaGrande had stayed to do the same.”
Receiving backlash for his comments, he was reminded that Ariana herself would have been traumatised by what occurred and most likely needed/wanted to be in a familiar environment, surrounded by friends and family.
However he continued on,
“Probably not as much as those killed and & wounded. She should have stayed to visit her injured fans.”
“I expected better from her. Her fans have been decimated. Stay, visit, comfort.”
Not one to let things go, when one follower mentioned Ariana’s young age, he shot back with “23 is not a child.”
Suggesting that had he been in her position, he would “100%…stay & visit those who had been killed or wounded watching me perform”
“It struck me as odd that the Queen would visit the wounded fans & not the star who they had paid to watch.”
Despite his comments, people continued to defend Ariana’s decision to return home, pointing out that she has reached out to the families.
The 23-year-old singer has offered to cover funeral costs of the victims of the attack.
