Good Morning Britain's TV host Piers Morgan got into a heated argument with a female rights activist Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu live on TV.
During a debate segment concerning the damning Oprah Winfrey interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Shola branded Piers a liar and disgrace for his criticism towards Meghan.
Piers, who's a known critic of Meghan, had even gone on social media labelling the hard-hitting piece "self-serving nonsense" and blasting Harry for letting it happen.
During the interview, Piers asked Shola about Harry and Meghan's behaviour towards the royal family, especially when Prince Philip is lying in hospital.
A stunned Shola found the comments insulting and called Piers a disappointment, adding he constantly uses his platform to aggravate sexism, racism, and even being misogynistic.
"You are such a disappointment, I wish to God that one day you'd even surprise me. You constantly use your platform as a white privileged man with powered influence to aggravate and escalate sexist, racist and misogyny attacks. And you do it shamelessly," she argued.
She questioned if Philip being 99 and in hospital and the Queen at 94 meant they should not be called out for any wrongdoing.
