Hours after Morgan walked off his ITV morning show (only to return moments later), ITV announced that Morgan won't be back. “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add," ITV said in a statement. Morgan has bashed Markle relentlessly before, but his comments Monday doubting Markle when she said in her Oprah Winfrey interview that she considered suicide resulted in 41,000 complaints to British regulator Ofcom, which announced it would investigate his comments. This morning, Morgan doubled down on his doubts, saying "if I'm wrong, it's a scandal." Viewers, meanwhile, blasted ITV as "hypocrites" for allowing Morgan's comments while running a mental health campaign. After his comments, the mental health charity Mind said it was "disappointed and concerned" with Morgan and that it would have conversations with ITV. As the news broke, Morgan tweeted an image of tick-toking clock.
