Fired breakfast talk show host Piers Morgan says he has received death threats over his comments about Meghan Markle.

"I've always subscribed to the 'if you dish it out, you've got to take it' philosophy," he wrote. "But my three sons told me they too are all being targeted, and sent me screenshots of venomous abuse and threats of violence towards them," he wrote of adult sons Spencer, Albert and Stanley. One troll vowed to murder me in front of them, and added: 'When your dad dies, the world will have a party,'" he said.

Piers lost his job on Good Morning Britain, after he publicly disputed claims Meghan made during her interview with Oprah where she claimed that she once contemplated suicide.

He says he chose to quit rather than to apologize.

“I reached a moment of total gut clarity: f*ck it, I wasn’t going to apologize for disbelieving Meghan Markle, because the truth is that I don’t believe Meghan Markle,” he wrote.
