John Barnes called out Piers Morgan over his racist Chinese impression

John Barnes called out Piers Morgan over his racist Chinese impression

the poke - 1 month ago

Nobody would ever accuse Piers Morgan of being too politically correct, but on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain, he chose to illustrate an item about the Queen’s grandson making a milk advert in China with a shocking impression.

Here’s what happened.

John Barnes spotted the unfortunate moment, and this is how he reacted.

Morgan tried to defend his behaviour, claiming the Chinese weren’t the target of his mockery.

John Barnes picked a big hole in that one.

The incident divided Twitter, with some on John Barnes’ side …

and some not.

Matthew Shankly Wilson had this assessment of the situation.

In case you were curious, here’s the milk ad in full.
