Outspoken TV presenter Piers Morgan has branded Kirstie Allsopp “unbelievably stupid and privileged” for her feedback on residence possession.
The Location, Location, Location presenter has been referred to as out for feedback she made within the Sunday Occasions that she purchased her first residence on the age of 21, with the assistance of her household by saving on luxuries, saying younger individuals want to surrender their subscription life-style in the event that they need to get on the property ladder.
Former Good Morning presenter Morgan slammed the property professional and craft-lover in his tweet: “Every time Kirstie Allsopp trends, I check why and see she’s said another unbelievably stupid, ludicrously ill-informed and woefully privileged thing. Then I wait for her to respond to the entirely justified outrage by throwing her toys out of the pram & quitting Twitter again.”
Allsopp, 50, was quoted as saying: “When I bought my first property, going abroad, the EasyJet, coffee, gym, Netflix lifestyle didn’t exist. I used to walk to work with a sandwich. And on payday I’d go for a pizza, and to a movie, and buy a lipstick.”
Allsopp has reacted to the backlash, saying: “If you don’t like the shows don’t watch them. But I’m beyond caring what the press or social media think about me, life is too short.”
It isn’t the primary time that Morgan and Allsopp have clashed on Twitter. Final yr, the broadcaster referred to as her “cretinous” for saying that lockdown was extra harmful to kids than COVID-19.
