Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 55, has taken to Twitter to call out an Instagram user for writing a threatening comment in response to a photo he posed for with his son Spencer Morgan, 27. Piers’ snap showed himself and Spencer standing next to a waterfall in London’s Holland Park.
He captioned his post: “Lockdown debate walk. The water was a calming influence.”
The journalist posted a screenshot of the death threats he had received from the troll in view of his 7.7 million Twitter followers this morning.
One read: “Watch your back @spencermorgan if you don’t get your dad, your getting it or your mum is.”(sic)
A second threatening comment from the same Instagram user also said: “@piersmorgan your a marked man, calling the police, big tech or beefing up your security isn’t going to stop us getting to you, this isn’t a threat piers it’s a promise, your getting killed.”(sic)

Piers wrote alongside the screenshot: “Another day, another death threat… this one from someone on Instagram.
“Anyone know who he is?
“Let’s see how big and tough he feels when I give him the exposure he deserves.”
Fans took to the comments section of Piers’ post to share their concern for the star in light of the death threats.
One person wrote: “This is why all social media accounts should need verifying with ID.”
Another added: “This is disgusting! But I’m sure you couldn’t resist *you’re. Hope the police track him down and he is made accountable for his actions.”
A third fan commented: “I hate humans some days, love or loath piers it’s his views and opinions he’s still someone’s dad, son, husband, brother, there is never a need for death threats.”
A fourth person replied: “Jesus Christ Piers how do you cope with that mentally I don’t think I could.”

“I hope your young daughter is unaware of this piers. These people have no thought of others x,” a fifth fan typed.
A sixth Twitter user said: “Piers. I don’t always agree with you but you certainly do not deserve that sort of abuse. Got get him!”
It comes after Piers claimed he had discovered abusive people were using the #BeKind trend on Twitter.
The hashtag has been trending in tribute to Love Island host Caroline Flack, who died a year ago today, aged 40.
Piers wrote: “One thing I’ve learned in the past year: many of those who use the hashtag #BeKind on social media are staggeringly unkind & abusive people.”
However, some of Piers’ followers questioned whether his post also applied to him, as he had previously criticised Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s announcement that they are expecting a second child.
The outspoken star wrote: “BREAKING: The Duke & Duchess of Privacy have given an exclusive ‘wide-ranging’ prime-time interview about their private lives to Oprah Winfrey for a 90-minute special airing on CBS on March 7. This is beyond parody, but true.”
One person wrote in response: “Are you going to include yourself in that now? Or are you going to give Harry a break?”
A second commented: “Have you considered looking inwards at your approach with Meghan and Harry?”
