Piers Morgan condemns ‘vermin’ attacking Captain Tom over Barbados trip

Captain Tom Moore trolls are ‘vermin’ says Piers Morgan

Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan has been a vehement supporter of Sir Captain Tom Moore ever since he came into the public eye for his heroic efforts at raising an eye-watering amount of money for the NHS. On Sunday, the veteran’s family confirmed Captain Tom was in hospital after contracting Covid-19 and the news led to online trolls abusing the fundraiser and his family blaming his recent Barbados trip for the diagnosis. 

Piers began: “There are these disgusting vermin, to be abusing him and his family, to be mocking them on Twitter, at such a moment where there are serious concerns about his life, I find utterly contemptible.

“As contemptible as the racist abuse I saw aimed at Marcus Rashford over the weekend. What have we become? Seriously?

“Where are we as a society where so many people on Twitter, on social media, are sitting at home and sitting up and thinking ‘I know what I will do – I will abuse Marcus Rashford, I will abuse Captain Tom’.

“Why don’t you do what Marcus Rashford did? Why don’t you get off your racist bigoted nasty backsides and do something yourselves for your country.”

“Get free school meals for one of millions children living in poverty. Do what Marcus Rashford did,” Piers continued.

“Do what Captain Tom did. Raise millions and millions for the NHS – you lot haven’t raised 39 pence for charity, have you?

“You selfish, little… well I won’t say the word. You know what you are.”
