Sarah Silverman And Piers Morgan Get Into An Ugly Twitter Feud

Sarah Silverman has called out British journalist Piers Morgan, for shouting at an anti-Trump protester in London in a video that “Good Morning Britain” later posted.

Silverman tweeted: “Shouting your narrative at a guest [because] she has answers that don’t prove your point does not even resemble journalism. What if you listened to her instead? I urge you to wonder what it is you feared would happen if you had let yourself hear what she had to say?”

Note Morgan’s comment that Silverman was enamored with a “clueless communist heroine”, to which Silverman shot back, “You invented she’s my heroine even [though] I made zero comments about her, you adorable deflector.”

The fieriness of this dispute is only a microcosm of the drama bound to happen in the coming days, in the midst of Trump’s highly-anticipated UK visit, and we will be watching at the edge of our seats to see how the protests unfold.
