Asked about Keely Hodgkinson’s medal, Mark Austin encourages Piers Morgan to “find a job.”
Mark Austin advised Piers Morgan to “find a job” after the two got into an argument over social media.
Piers Morgan’s comments about Olympic medals have sparked debate on social media. Mark Austin of Sky News was the latest celebrity to weigh in, questioning what the former Good Morning Britain host had said about Keely Hodgkinson.
Wear some official Team Great Britain clothing from Adidas to see Great Britain give it their all at the Tokyo Olympics.
The disagreement began when Piers responded to a follower on Twitter, despite his 7.9 million followers.
The outspoken host had previously stated that the only medals worth earning are gold ones.
His most recent target was Great Britain’s Keely Hodgkinson, who won silver in the 800m at the Tokyo Olympics.
“So by @piersmorgan definition Keeley Hodgkinson is a failure because she earned silver but broke Dame Kelly Holmes British record?” one user asked.
“I realize he’s only in it for the clicks, but [vomiting emoji].” (sic)
Piers retorted, “I’m sorry facts make you puke.” It goes without saying that if you don’t win a race, you lose it.
“And Keeley came up short against someone her age.
“However, it’s fantastic to see her beat the British record, and I hope she trains even harder now to win Gold in Paris in 2024.”
However, Mark, a Sky News anchor, chimed in with his comments, telling Piers to “find a job.”
ITV Evening News and ITV News at Ten have both employed the seasoned broadcaster.
On Sky, he now hosts The News House and Sky News at 6 p.m.
“First and foremost, it’s Keely; second, it was the run of her life, and personal successes mean different things to different people…,” he responded, dismissing Piers’ reasoning. and, third, find work.”
As they got into a public squabble, Piers couldn’t help but respond to the presenter.
“Please quit virtue-signaling Austin,” he retorted. It’s humiliating.
“Victory comes exclusively from victory, not from defeat. Given your @SkyNews ratings, you wouldn’t know.”
Earlier today, Keely broke Dame Kelly Holmes’ British Record in the final.
The 19-year-old broke the previous mark, which had stood since 1995, with a time of one minute 55.88 seconds.
However, she almost lost out on the gold medal, as Athing Mu of the United States took the top spot.
