Some hours back, the British journalist took to his Twitter handle to repost a report on India welcoming its Olympic achievers and wrote alongside, "Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?"
Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that? https://t.co/FYSBM7ErAf— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 24, 2016
His comment didn't go down well with the Twitterers and in no time, they started slamming the 51-year-old TV personality saying, "Nothing more embarrassing than being Piers Morgan."
"@piersmorgan Piers, population size has literally no correlation to sporting success at all., wrote the other," tweeted another.
"@Mendelpol Let's not forget how developed nations force sports of their choice to have multiple medals. U must b 1 proud bully @piersmorgan," said one.
"@piersmorgan slamming fans in small towns that don't have a lot to celebrate is strange behavior from a man who has a lot," wrote another.
Earlier this month, Morgan was also slammed for his tweet about Olympic medals.
"Just can't get excited by Silver & Bronze medals. You win or you lose. Gold is all that matters. #Olympics2016," Morgan tweeted then.
Many, notably English swimmer Chris Walker-Hebborn, who competed at the 2012 Olympics and in Rio this year, did not take it well and said, "Jog on you muppet."
