Piers Morgan’s popularity continues to plummet – not only is the petition calling for him to be deported now on more than 61,000 signatures, but Jeremy Clarkson has weighed into the fray, issuing a public plea that the chat show host is NOT returned to Britain.
The row erupted after CNN host Morgan attacked the right to bear arms in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre.
A gun lobby petition to deport Morgan is now well over the required threshold of 25,000 signatories – meaning the White House has an obligation to respond.
The UK Petition Reads: “We got rid of him once and why should we have to suffer again. The Americans wanted him so they should put up with him. We washed our hands of him a long time ago.”
