Piers Morgan brings guest to tears after explosive argument
ITV Good Morning Britain host, Piers Morgan this morning brought a guest to tears after laying into her parenting skills.
Controversial host, Morgan who is often lambasted on social media for his opinions, gave viewers a taste of his nasty side when involved in a heated discussion with a guest. [Scroll down for Video]
Morgan can be seen tearing into mother-of-one Sarah Louise Bryan, who recently made headlines with an invoice she sent to a fellow parent, for a new pair of shoes for her daughter. Watch the explosive exchange below.
Sarah asked a friend to pay £325 to replace her daughter’s Italian leather boots after they were marked with pen during a play date.
It became known that Sarah’s daughter owns 60 pairs of shoes, which Piers clearly opposed to.
He said: “There won’t be a mother or father watching this interview, looking at you thinking ‘what on earth are you doing buying a three year old 60 pairs of shoes?’
“Do you understand how preposterous that is?”
Morgan also noted the incident could affect Sarah’s daughters social life. He said: “No friends are going to want to have her round if you do things like that.”
Sarah then began to appear visibly upset, telling Piers: “I do understand, I have had so much abuse, you have no idea.
“This has got nothing to do with my parenting and it’s unfair, all the bullying.”
Sarah then broke down on set, revealing she was abused and bullied in her youth. She then said the constant cyber bullying she’s been receiving is “not right.”
“She’s allowed to make mud pies and do things like that”
The guest was then asked whether she regrets sending the invoice, after all the uproar it has caused: “I don’t regret it. I regret not changing her shoes.”
Insisting her daughter is able to play with other children, Sarah said: “She is allowed to get dirty, she’s allowed to make mud pies and do things like that.
“She gets everything – not in a spoilt way but she gets everything she needs. I work hard.”
Good Morning Britain viewers used Twitter to share their views on the interview. Many of them agreed with the host, who is often criticised for his opinions.

@GMB no don't agree with her, agree with Piers wholeheartedly. She needed a reality check, he gave it to her. Support him Susannah!

However, not everybody agreed.
@GMB Piers, you should be ashamed of yourself. Regardless of the situation there are means and ways of speaking to someone!!!!
