Piers Morgan condemns ‘vermin’ attacking Captain Tom over Barbados trip

Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan has been a vehement supporter of Sir Captain Tom Moore ever since he came into the public eye for his heroic efforts at raising an eye-watering amount of money for the NHS. On Sunday, the veteran’s family confirmed Captain Tom was in hospital after contracting Covid-19 and the news led to online trolls abusing the fundraiser and his family blaming his recent Barbados trip for the diagnosis. 

Piers began: “There are these disgusting vermin, to be abusing him and his family, to be mocking them on Twitter, at such a moment where there are serious concerns about his life, I find utterly contemptible.

“As contemptible as the racist abuse I saw aimed at Marcus Rashford over the weekend. What have we become? Seriously?

“Where are we as a society where so many people on Twitter, on social media, are sitting at home and sitting up and thinking ‘I know what I will do – I will abuse Marcus Rashford, I will abuse Captain Tom’.

“Why don’t you do what Marcus Rashford did? Why don’t you get off your racist bigoted nasty backsides and do something yourselves for your country.”
