Piers Morgan sparks division by taking pop from ‘stinky’ revelers at Glastonbury Festival | Celebrity News | Showbiz and television
Piers Morgan took aim at Glastonbury Festival revelers as thousands flocked to Somerset for a fun weekend of music by legendary artists such as Sir Elton John, Paul McCartney and Diana Ross. The TalkTV host made his feelings clear when lashing out at festival-goers in a scathing tweet on Friday.
Looking at his 7.9 million followers, Piers, 56, claimed the attendees were a mass of “stinky partygoers”.
He tweeted: “I can’t think of anything worse in the world than being at Glastonbury trapped in the middle of a seething mass of sweaty, stinky revelers.”
Social media users flocked to comment on the post as his comments caused a split on the microblogging site.
Twitter user @Kazz said: “It’s not funny but I’ve been in meeting rooms, no open windows, maybe there were participants with not very personal hygiene. good. At least in Glastonbury it’s outdoors and not as trapped as a meeting room. Plus you have music and good times.”
