Good Morning Britain Slammed As Four White Men Join Piers Morgan On Panel To Debate Meghan Markle's Character

Good Morning Britain has come under fire after four white, middle-aged men were invited onto the programme to discuss 'bullying' accusations levied at Meghan Markle.

The ITV breakfast programme saw journalists Andrew Neil, Chris Ship, Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire join Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid to debate the news story, which recently broke in The Times.

The newspaper claimed that Meghan was accused of "emotional cruelty" and alleged that she faced a bullying complaint from one of her closest advisers at Kensington Palace.

The complaint reportedly suggested Meghan "drove two personal assistants out of the household and was ­undermining the confidence of a third staff member."

The Sussexes have since vehemently denied the story, responding in a statement that they are victims of a "calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation".

However, some viewers were left less than impressed when they saw that GMB had invited an all white, male panel to pour over Meghan's alleged behaviour, with some even going as far to call it a "character assassination".

"Five men character assassinating a woman," one wrote. "No wonder Meghan left the UK. This was uncomfortable to watch. This is the reality women face daily. Disgusting."

"Five men debate whether Meghan Markle is a bully," said another. "So tired of it all."

"Thank God GMB made sure five middle aged or older white men were given a huge platform on national television to give us all their opinion on a woman," a third sniped.

"Breakfast media this morning is exclusively middle-aged, white men laying into Meghan Markle, it is actually sickening to watch," chimed in a fourth.

Piers Morgan has had a lot to say about the Sussex royals this week, and was also called out on Monday and Tuesday by many viewers for the way he slammed them live on air.

Tyla has contacted a spokesperson for Good Morning Britain for comment. Later in today's programme, media personality Joanna Jarjue, and journalists Emily Andrews and Ella Whelan were invited on to discuss the story.

The British media has faced widespread criticism for its coverage on Meghan Markle, with many describing some headlines and opinions published about her as "racist."

The developing story comes after it was announced both Prince Harry and Meghan will speak to Oprah Winfrey in a no-holds-barred interview to be aired later this week.
