The GMB host took to his Twitter page to show his contempt for “celebrity attention-seeking.” Piers has been using his social media platform to urge people to self-isolate amid the COVID-19 outbreak So far the coronavirus pandemic has claimed over 100 lives in the UK, and the number of fatalities is growing every day.
While many are still faced with heading to work during this uncertain time, for the A list it is a time to keep indoors as many celebrities have shared photos in self-quarantine.
However, Sam Smith took it a step further, as they shared a series of photos on his Instagram where they depicted the several stages of a “quarantine meltdown” while holed up in their £12 million mansion.
The singer began the series by showing a pained expression on their face, followed by holding their head in their hands appearing to cry.
Sam also told their followers in a previous video that due to “allergies” and a “headache” they would be staying inside to be safe.
Piers replied to Sams online behaviour by saying: “FFS.
I can’t take any more of this celebrity attention-seeking b**t.
“Get a grip, the lot of you.
“This is a war, not an Instagram story op.”
A third exclaimed: “I agree! It’s absolutely annoying. Most of the limousine leftists are self isolating. The very ones that claim they like to help the underdog! Where are they now? All in hiding!”
It comes as Morgan published his new column for the Daily Mail where he ripped into “selfish millennials” like High School Musical star “Vanessa Hudgens.”
In the column, he slammed “brainless” youngsters for not taking the current pandemic seriously, after high school musical star Vanessa Hudgens said on her Instagram live: “I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus, I get it, I respect it. But at the same time, like, even if everybody gets it, like, yeah, people are gonna die.”
The columnist reacted to Hudgen’s statement in his article with fury: “ In the general scheme of things right now, the thoughts of someone like Vanessa Hudgens shouldn’t matter.
“But when someone with 38.4 million followers who hang on her every word is spewing such dangerous nonsense, it actually does matter.
“It can literally mean people live or die.
“And her casual, self-absorbed gormlessness explains why all those Spring Break students are partying on the beach, why so many others are still hitting any bars and club still open in Britain and America, and why they’re so furious at their holidays being cancelled, or their gyms being closed, or their favourite sport being canned?”
He added: “This is a woefully entitled generation that’s grown up whining about absolutely everything – yet has so little to legitimately whine about given how much safer, healthier, less war-ravaged and more prosperous the world is now compared to any other time in recorded history.”
It comes as London is braced to finally lockdown with 40 Tube stations already closed and bars and restaurants to be shut in a bid to stop the rapid spread of coronavirus.
