Piers Morgan Blasts Hugh Grant As ‘Tedious Little Man’

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Do not invite Piers Morgan and Hugh Grant to the same dinner party.

Morgan just slammed Grant on Twitter, and publicly banned him from his show, “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

The CNN host tweeted, “Hugh Grant is now banned, in perpetuity, from @PiersTonight and Life Stories. And anything else I ever do. Tedious little man.”

Morgan, a former editor of the British paper News of the World – which recently paid out Sienna Miller for allegedly hacking into her cell phone – was ticked off by an interview Grant did today with BBC Radio host Richard Bacon.

In the 10-minute long exchange with Bacon, Grant, who himself had his phone hacked, unleashed his distaste for England’s tabloids.

The Love Actually star said, “The tabloid press is completely unnecessary… We don’t need them, we don’t want them, and the sooner they go out of business the better.”

Morgan, who we’re told has a longstanding feud with Grant, apparently took personal umbrage to the actor’s statements, further tweeting, “Listening to Bishop Hugh Grant telling @richardpbacon he wants popular newspapers eradicated. I feel the same about his crap movies.”

But tell us how you really feel, Piers.
