Please don’t kick out Piers, we don’t want him back! British critics launch counter-petition to make sure he stays in U.S.

A petition to have the journalist deported after he criticised pro gun campaigners has attracted 71,000 signatures

  • Now a second petition saying he must stay because the British do not want him also has around 1,100 votes of support


First Piers Morgan became the subject of a petition calling for him to be deported from the US for upsetting the gun lobby there.


Now a counter-petition has been started, asking for America to keep him – not because he’s popular there but (allegedly) because no one here wants him back.


The broadcaster is at the centre of a row after criticising pro-gun campaigners on his nightly US chat show in the wake of the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre, in which 20 children and six adults were shot dead.


More than 72,000 Americans have so far signed a petition on the White House website calling for him to be kicked out.
