Piers Morgan faced backlash over his recent comments about Naomi Osaka, comparing the world’s famous tennis star to Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle.

The former ‘Good Morning Britain’ presenter took aim at Naomi for her denial to give interviews during her time in the French open.

The world number two tennis star revealed she has been suffering with depression since the US open in 2018. Following increased attention, she subsequently said she was pulling out of the tournament.

The 56-year-old slammed the star and said: “Narcissistic Naomi’s cynical exploitation of mental health to silence the media is right from the Meghan & Harry playbook of wanting their press cake and eating it.”

Social media users were quick to blast Morgan for his criticism of Naomi, 23, and for comparing her to Archie’s mom Meghan Markle.

One person wrote: “Now you’ve got Naomi Osaka rent free in your head alongside Meghan and Harry! Still, you have got plenty of space I guess.”

A second penned: “Piers, stop that please. Criticism on Naomi Osaka and Meghan Markle. Just stop it, please. Just stop.”

Piers Morgan previously decried the Duchess of Sussex for writing children’s book The Bench, which was inspired by her husband Prince Harry’s relationship with their son Archie.
