PIERS MORGAN has jokingly blamed women for creating coranavirus — sharing a meme that highlights how men’s favourite pastimes have been shelved because of the pandemic.
The controversial broadcaster posted the ‘public service announcement’ to his 909,000 Instagram followers, saying it ‘makes perfect sense’.
The borrowed gag concludes: ‘Think about it lads… 1 — No sports. 2 — All pubs to shut. 3 — 14 days quarantine (so you can finally get those odd jobs done). 4 — Symptoms of corona are flu-like… they know that’s our Kryptonite. 5 — They even had the audacity to name it after a beer.’
Morgan, 54, also revealed that his eight-year-old daughter Elise had set up a ‘zero tolerance strategy’ in their home, the likes of which ‘our government should be deploying’.
Outside his home office she placed a sign reading ‘Wash hands right now!’ alongside tissues and antibacterial wipes for her dad to use. And a tip box.
