He said he’s had a lot of people reach out to say they’re sad he left the show and added that one of his proudest achievements was finally beating the BBC rival morning show on his last day.
ITV has asked him to continue doing intermittent spots for the network.
“I don’t have any problem with ITV, my problem is with the increasingly insidious woke cancel culture that’s now infesting all companies like ITV,” he wrote. “If allowed to continue unchecked, it will make it virtually impossible for anyone with an opinionated personality to survive in any workplace.”
“My problem is with the increasingly insidious woke cancel culture … If allowed to continue unchecked, it will make it virtually impossible for anyone with an opinionated personality to survive in any workplace.”
He said a few days later his book, “Wake Up,” which slams cancel culture, shot up to be a number one bestseller.
“I’ve never had so many members of the public come up to offer their support, toot their horns from cars, cabs, lorries and buses, or send me letters and gifts,” he wrote. “It’s been relentless, slightly insane, and very gratifying.”
He mentioned that even former President Trump, who Morgan was once friends with but later turned against, was supporting him against cancel culture.
Morgan has reportedly broken the all-time record for TV regulator complaints in the country – 57,000, including one from Meghan herself – but he said he’s received thousands of more signatures on a petition for him to rejoin “Good Morning Britain.”
“It’s time to cancel the cancel culture before it kills our culture.”
He wrote that Meghan was forced to admit they didn’t get married three days before their royal wedding – as she claimed in the interview – after a certificate of their marriage was published by a newspaper and CNN published a story about “inconsistencies” in the interview.

“She’s just one of many whiny, privileged, hypocritical celebrities who now cynically exploit victimhood to suppress free speech, value their own version of the truth above the actual truth, and seek to cancel anyone that deviates from their woke world view or who dares to challenge the veracity of their inflammatory statements,” he wrote. “No, it’s about a far bigger issue than one delusional Duchess, and that’s everyone’s right to be free to express our honestly held opinions, forcefully and passionately if we feel like it.”
He clarified that he doesn’t see himself as a “victim” or “canceled.”
“But if our rights to free speech are denied, then democracy as we know it will die,” he said. “It’s time to cancel the cancel culture before it kills our culture.”
