Piers Morgan Shot Down By USA Shooting

posted on August 12, 2016

The 2016 Olympics kicked off a week ago in fine style—with the U.S. picking up their first gold medal of the games courtesy of 19-year-old sharpshooter Ginny Thrasher. But of course, not everyone was happy for the Women’s 10m Air Rifle champ.

Piers Morgan, whose aggressive gun-control stance ultimately led to the cancellation of his CNN show, couldn’t help but fire off a tweet saying it was unsurprising that “America’s 1st Olympic Gold Medal is for shooting.” USA Shooting quickly shot back at the Brit, thanking him for trolling and reminding him that she also bested six British competitors. 

The classless Morgan has since gone on to accuse Team USA members of doping and has branded UK silver and bronze medal winners as “underachieving.” Thrasher, meanwhile, has been gracious in victory and plans to return to West Virginia University at the conclusion of the Olympics.
