Piers defended his comments again today by sharing a Winston Churchill quote alongside the tweet: “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t.

“If you did, ok. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”

The Churchill quote reads: “Some people’s idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they are like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.”
