PIERS Morgan has been getting “vile and abusive” death threats from “teenage girls,” his son Spencer has revealed.
It comes after the presenter, 55, said he doesn’t believe many of the claims Meghan Markle made in her recent interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Piers and GMB co-star Alex Beresford clashed over their take on the chat during Tuesday morning’s episode of the breakfast show.
Alex criticised Piers for his coverage on the interview, which resulted in Piers storming off set.
That evening Piers stood down from the programme after 41,000 people complained to Ofcom over his remarks about Meghan.
Now his son Spencer has urged his dad’s critics to “get help”.
Speaking out about the messages his dad has received, he told his 59.1k followers on Twitter: “To be specific it’s early teenage girls.
“The ones who ‘stan’ stuff and have s**t like One Direction in their bio. Sending death threats etc, you name it. Poor kids – hope they get help.”
The tweet comes after he stated that people on the social media platform are “too scared to go even the slightest bit against the grain”.
He followed up with another post an hour later that said: “What’s also become clear is it’s the brainwashed young are the most vile and abusive on Team Woke. Their parents must save them.”
Thousands of GMB viewers were left angered by Piers’ comments about the Duchess of Sussex earlier this week.
He said: “I’m angry to the point of boiling over. I’m sickened by what I’ve just seen.
“This is a two-hour ‘trashathon’ of our Royal Family, the monarchy and everything the Queen has worked hard for, done while Prince Philip lies in hospital.
“They basically make out they are a bunch of white supremacists
by dropping a racist bombshell.”
YOU’RE NOT ALONE
EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.
It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.
Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.
If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:
He also queried many of Meghan’s claims, including her mental health struggles.
He said: “Who did you go to? What did they say to you?
“I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe a weather report if she read it.
“The fact she has expressed an onslaught against our Royal Family is contemptible.”
