Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 54, took to Twitter and hit out at “pathetic” critics for being “abusive” towards Sir Rod Stewart, 74. It comes after the legendary crooner seemingly appeared to endorse Boris Johnson after his landslide victory in Thursday’s General Election 2019.
In view of his seven million followers, Piers congratulated the Forever Young hitmaker for reaching number one with his latest album release.
He wrote: “Congrats to @rodstewart – and how pathetic that he can’t himself graciously congratulate Boris without being vilified. We’ve become a nation of shockingly bad & abusive losers.”(sic)
Fans flocked to comment on the post, as one person quipped: “Congratulations to Piers on congratulating Rod Stewart for congratulating Boris Johnson!”
Another person said: “Rod Stewart has gone up in my opinion.”

While a third person added: “There is only one Rod. A true Brit legend.”(sic)
Piers’ remarks comes after the singer shared a heartfelt message after scoring his 10th number one album with new offering You’re In My Heart.
In view of his 405,000 followers, the singer made reference to both Robbie Williams and The Who, who claimed the second and third spots in the charts and wrote: “Thank you once again to my legions of fans who I will never take for granted. Bless you all and a Merry Christmas.
“Well done Robbie, well done Boris, no hard feelings Pete Townshend! – Rod xxx.”(sic)
Another fan tweeted: “And now the left turn their angst and tears on @rodstewart because he congratulates Boris. Further evidence of @labour’s kinder, gentler politics, I guess?”
Elsewhere, Rod appeared on BBC Two documentary Reel Stories alongside Dermot O’Leary, which aired last night.
The pop legend discussed his childhood and career which has spanned over six decades.
The programme has previously covered notable performers including, pop singer Kylie Minogue and musician Noel Gallagher.
Elsewhere, the hitmaker recently opened up about his split from his second wife Rachel Hunter in a candid interview.
