Piers Morgan criticises Ariana Grande for heading home after Manchester terror attack instead of visiting the victims like the queen did

Piers Morgan has criticised Ariana Grande for returning immediately to Florida following the suicide bombing at her concert rather than stay back and sympathise with her fans who were injured or lost family members. The attack occurred on Monday and on Tuesday, Ariana was back home and though she released a statement expressing her sorrow at what happened, Morgan thinks that's not enough.

He expressed his opinion after singer Katy Perry praised Queen Elizabeth for visiting the injured kids yesterday at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. Katy wrote on Twitter :


"God bless The Queen and her kind heart."

And Piers replied: "Agreed. Might have been nice if @ArianaGrande had stayed to do the same."

Piers' tweet sparked immediate outrage, with one social media user telling him he had to apologize for his statement.

"Spectacularly ill thought out, that deserves a rethink, retraction and an apology," BristolSteve tweeted.

But Piers remained adamant, replying: "If the Queen can visit the victims in hospital, so can the star they paid to see."

He added: "I can 100 per cent guarantee you I would stay and visit those who had been killed or wounded watching me perform."


Some people agreed with Piers Morgan while some were against him, telling him that people grieve in different ways. Do you think Piers was right?

That's trauma for you! Ariana is shaken up by this incident. she needed to be taken care of too by her close family and friends. Please put yourself in people's shoes before you open your wild mouth. Think about it, '22 dead and scores injured at Ariana Grande Manchester Arena concert'. Her name is forever attached to that unfortunate incident. She's super traumatised.

This is so insensitive, of what use will her visit be if she get there and break down;crying and all. I mean how can she comfort anyone when she needs comforting herself? she is a victim of the blast as well, just because she does not have any physical injury does not prove otherwise.


And he said he would have visited them if it was him? Mtchew, one thing I have learnt in this life is you can never truly know how someone feels unless you have been in their shoes. that's why it's easy for the constituted authorities to keep us at home for 11months without an iota of remorse, after all their kids schooled abroad and they both got the Awolowo free education

Very true ,and you will think the so called Morgan will understand that.

Yea piers is right.its not just to take their money and run back to Florida and send condolence message from there.staying back on Manchester would have just been the best thing to do

Dis one will not stay on his lane. Attacking a Lil girl his daughter's age. No be about who go nai d thing pain pass. She may be petrified and terrified all at once and still unable to process d whole ordeal. But "Mr I must criticize EVERYTHING" wouldn't give her d chance to. Better no let dat poor girl go commit suicide o, bcos we all kw suicide is panadol for u pipo.

I beg to differ. They were not killed bcos deh came to watch her...deh were killed bcos some psychopath planted a bomb. If it didn't happen in her show, would have happened elsewhere anyway.
Lets not forget she's a kid too..celebrity or not.

Ariana also needs people to visit her.
She is a victim of the attack as well
Piers Morgan, Shut the hell up!!!

Chi said...

This man is just an ode,she was a victim too. Not until it happens to you, only den can you judge,if not just keep quiet

Vic said...

Piers Morgan is actually right, even though people as usual love insulting him. Then she releases a statement saying she will return to perform a benefit concert on behalf of this (which is not free). She may be a victim, but we often forget that most public figures often think about making money in virtually all situations. To her team, they are still seeing this as a business opportunity even though it was a tragic incidence.

One sense! Just one o!! You no get I swear.

Don't be an idiot, Piers Morgan. Cut the poor girl a slack. She's not as old and as mature as your Queen, and so probably not as mentally strong to handle what had happened. You don't have to be an asshole every day of your life, you know.
