Piers Morgan Slams Ringo
« on: May 29, 2009, 07:20:14 AM »

PIERS Morgan has lashed out at Ringo Starr, dubbing him as "disgusting, selfish, greedy and thoughtless".

The Britain's Got Talent judge hit out at the ex Beatle after it was reported that he refused to give an autograph to an elderly woman at the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday - making her cry.


It's claimed he snapped at her: "I don't sign autographs, read that on my website."


Piers ranted on his blog: "Ringo was always the least talented, ugliest, jammiest member of the Beatles.


"I think we can now safely add the words 'disgusting', 'selfish', 'greedy' and 'thoughtless' to the list too."

Piers Morgan? Who is Piers Morgan?

Was editor of the Daily Mail. Resigned after his paper tried to pass off fake British-soldiers-abusing-Iraqi-prisoners as real.
Now a media celebrity, currently a judge on the enormously popular Britains Got Talent (think Susan Boyle.)
Has a reputation as a tell-it-as-it-is kinda guy.

I think it's funny how some people think celebrities owe them things like photos and autographs. I mean, nobody forced you to buy their records or see their movies. They're just doing their job. They don't owe you anything.

Piers is a piece of work and has a cheek to be labelling anyone as he is all that and much worse.

Ringo comes across as kind of an ass sometimes.

Why would you say that to an elderly woman?

In the least just politely decline.  To snap at someone is not polite,
not about love, and not the way people should treat each other.

Ringo was wrong to make the woman cry, but he also has the right to not have to sign autographs if he doesnt want to, and the woman really shouldnt be emotional over not getting an autograph so she's playing on it a little aswell.

Piers is just a tit, and shouldnt be commenting on it anyways as its none of his business.

Piers Morgan is pond life. That's not to say that Ringo hasn't acted like a prat recently. He could easily have signed her autograph. I get that he doesn't want people sending him stuff to sign anymore, but that was stupid. The likes of Morgan (ex Sun editor - says it all really) feed on stuff like that.

Ringo has been so grumpy recently.  I'm not sure of the veracity of this story, but I hope he acts more nicely towards his fans.

i gotta say folks it is a shame if this story is true-i would be very upset if ringo snapped at me if i asked politely for his signiture.it was the same when paul had a go at the guy who wanted an autograph when he went to see david blaine in the glass box in london.if any of the beatles were rude to me for no good reason it'd break my heart-i'd never listen to a beatle tune again in the same way.i cannot see the problem in being polite to your fans-offer a handshake if you don't wanna sign.

I agree with this..

If true Ringo is very mean not to sign autographs face to face.

Aw man, really? Now he has 2 reasons to be on my sh*t list  :P

And you know, they might be bending the truth about what Ringo did a little. When it comes to this stuff, the papers/tabloids always make it sound more terrible than it is. But this Peirs Morgan seems like a prick anyways. But this is just my opinion  ;D

Is that story of Ringo refusing the old woman from a British tabloid? The fact that it came from a tabloid means it's automatic BS. I'm a Journalism student in university, so I'm very open about my hatred towards tabloid gossip which only contributes to the stupidity of society.

I do think Ringo is getting grumpy as he gets older, and I think he was silly to have a hissy fit about signing autographs.  But at the same time, Piers Morgan is more than a bit of an idiot.  Most of his career is based around snooping into celebrities' lives and exposing their biggest secrets, and everything they'd rather the world didn't know.  A lot of what he says is sniding to most people.  And besides, I hardly think he and Ringo are exactly best chums, so the idea Piers knows anything of importance about Ringo is a bit ridiculous.
