Piers Morgan is a big Olympics fan. His Twitter feed is full of posts cheering on his fellow Brits.
Now, when Team America won their first gold medal in shooting, the ever-pompous Piers had to send a shot across the celebrating American’s bow being the anti-gun, lib nut-job he is.
19-year-old Virginia Thrasher had just won the women’s 10-meter air rifle competition when Piers Tweeted this out, mocking our love affair with the Second Amendment, keeping our families safe, etc., etc.
Of course, Americans weren’t about to take the jab lying down. They gave Piers a Twitter roasting of his own.
One of those responding to Piers was none other than U.S. Marine Sgt. Johnny (Joey) Jones, a hero veteran who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan.
Jones sent a Tweet to Piers, joking about him losing his CNN show, Piers Morgan Live.
Piers, not one to allow a double-amputee war hero get the best of him mockingly replied, “I have 3 shows Johnny but they’re all in the UK where you can’t march around with your guns pretending you’re Rambo.”
Piers, realizing it probably wasn’t the best thing to do to attack a US Marine who lost both of his legs in war, deleted the Tweet shortly after. We were fortunate enough to get a screenshot of the Tweet with Sgt. Jones’ epic reply.
Piers thought he could mock a double-amputee war vet and get away with it, but in the end, got Owned in the process. Serves him right. Maybe next time he’ll think twice before messing with Team America. Go, USA!
Share if you think Piers is a pompous a**, and if you love guns, America, our hero vets, apple pie, and your moms!
