Piers Morgan Ripped After Accusing Adele Of Exploiting Her 'Son's Pain' Over Divorce To Sell Albums

Piers Morgan is currently making headlines after attempting to call out and shame another famous woman.

Pier Morgan, known for working for Rupert Murdock and on the talk show Good Morning Britain, wrote column for Murdock tabloid The Daily Mail where he called out English best-selling musical artist Adele over the topic of her newest album.

The album—titled 30—delves into Adele's divorce from Simon Konecki in 2019.

In addition to vocalizing her pain, the award-winning singer also features her son, Angelo, on her album as they both talk about their difficulties handling the divorce.

In the song titled "My Little Love," we hear Angelo as he attempts to stop his mom, Adele, from crying.

Adele sings to him:

"I'm so sorry if what I've done makes you feel sad."

She then says:

"Tell me you love me."

To which Angelo replies:

"I love you, one million percent. I feel like you like me too."

Adele then adds:

"You know Mummy doesn't like anyone else like I like you, right?"
"Mummy's been having a lot of big feelings lately, I'm confused and I don't know what I'm doing."

While this may seem like a wholesome way for Adele and her son to bond over the emotional distress they have both been dealing with following the divorce, Morgan found the song distasteful.

In his column for The Daily Mail, Morgan called Adele "shameless" and "hypocritical."

He accused her of using her son's emotional pain for profit.

He wrote:

"Has she given a moment's thought to how Angelo might feel when he grows up to have had his agonizing conversations with his sobbing mum about her decision to dump his dad broadcast to the world?"
"She's crossed a line by exposing her young son's innermost feelings to public scrutiny in such a soul-baring, intimate way."
"And worse, she's done it for attention, money, and sales. Sorry, Adele—but I find that shameful, and given all your pleas for privacy, horribly hypocritical."

Morgan, noting he is a fan of Adele's music, also strangely tried to compare Adele's emotional music to the drama surrounding Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle. Morgan stormed off the set of his former job at Good Morning Britain after being criticized for racist and misogynist attacks against Markle.

Morgan has previously been cited for hypocrisy, misogyny and racism in his comments about Serena Williams, Greta Thunberg and other famous women—especially women of color. Many noted Morgan failed to take such a moral high ground when it came to his longtime friend Donald Trump.

Morgan wrote:

"(Her) behaviour is straight from the Meghan and Harry playbook, right down to invading her own privacy to America's foremost TV therapist, Oprah Winfrey."

As a result of his column and tweets, Adele's defenders are dragging Morgan on social media.















Morgan made a follow-up post on Twitter backtracking on his previously critical stance, calling Adele the "best singer in the world."

As of this writing, Adele has not responded to Morgan's criticism.
