While many fans paid homage to Shirley and her life’s work in the comments section, others felt the need to defend Piers after he came under fire from “trouble-makers” wanting to “cause a scene”, making it clear it wasn’t the time nor the place for such comments.
One retorted: “So she was everything you are not,” as someone else hit back: “Such a lovely chap aren’t you.”
The troll replied: “Unlike Morgan,” with the fan further defending the presenter: “And yet, here you are on his Twitter.”
A second disgruntled user used the same analogy, snapping: “Yes she was a wonderful character but not you Piers.”
