British journalist Piers Morgan has praised Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester concert and even apologised for 'misjudging' her previously for not visiting her injured fans in hospital after the Manchester suicide bombing that killed 22 people and injured 59 on 22nd May.
The former editor of the Daily News had criticised the American pop star, saying that if Queen Elizabeth could visit the hospital to meet the injured, Ariana Grande should have also done the same.
If the Queen can visit the victims in hospital, so can the star they paid to see. https://t.co/PhYo3sMbb7— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 25, 2017
I expected her to stay, visit & comfort her wounded fans & relatives of those who died. https://t.co/We5yVgG7gw— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 25, 2017
However, this is not the first time Piers Morgan has been at the centre of a Twitter controversy. Last year, he had hit out at India's performance in the Rio Olympics.
1,200,000,000 people and not a single Gold medal at the Olympics?— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 24, 2016
Come on India, this is shameful.
Put the bunting away & get training.
Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that? https://t.co/FYSBM7ErAf— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 24, 2016
During Sunday's concert, Grande had said she had not planned to play so many of her big hits but changed her mind after meeting the mother of Olivia Campbell-Hardy, 15, who was among the victims of the blast that kiiled 22 people at her concert last week.
She said: "I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia's mummy a few days ago and I started to cry and gave her a big hug and she said 'Stop crying, because Olivia wouldn't have wanted you to cry'."
"And then she told me Olivia would have wanted to hear the hits. We had a different show planned and we had a rehearsal yesterday and we changed everything."
