‘Shut up clowns’: Piers Morgan torches the New York Times

Piers Morgan has labelled the New York Times as “clowns” after the publication tweeted an article about how British taxpayers will be footing the bill for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

“Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, which will involve elaborate processions, vigils and rituals, will be paid for by British taxpayers as they deal with soaring energy prices and high inflation. The British government has not yet said how much it will cost,” the tweet read.

The Sky News Australia host hit back, accusing the New York Times of not understanding the magnitude of loss British people feel after the longest serving monarch died.

"Oh shut up, you clowns. You have no understanding about how we Brits feel about our great Queen, or you’d stop click-baiting all this negative garbage,” Piers Morgan tweeted.
