Piers Morgan’s son Spencer have been arguing on social media again.
The Good Morning Britain host, 55, told his 27-year-old to “grow a pair” as they rowed on Twitter for all to see on Tuesday.
The father and son locked horns over their differing views about the Coronavirus pandemic.
Spencer made the first swipe as he retweeted Piers’ post, which read: “Imagine telling your grandkids in 40 years when they asked what you did in the War on Covid: ‘Well, I refused to wear a mask, refused to take a vaccine & ignored lockdown rules – putting many lives at risk!'”
He then commented on his former newspaper editor dad’s tweet and penned: “Imagine telling them the world collapsed because of a 99.5% survival rate virus.”
Piers then fired back as he retweeted Spencer’s post and wrote: “The world’s fine.
“Only thing that’s collapsed is the bottle, resolve & resilience of many younger people who think this virus ‘isn’t our problem’.
“Grow a pair and do your bit.”
Not having it, Spencer replied: “I believe the one who needs to grow a pair is the man terrified of the *99.7% virus #wakeup.”
The two men clashed at the end of November about the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
Sharing statistics about Covid-19 survival rates on Twitter, Spencer Morgan tweeted: “Criminal that such a large portion of the general public have been tricked into being terrified of contracting this thing.”
This view was not shared, however, by Spencer’s father Piers who has been outspoken in his views on how a thorough response is needed for the coronavirus.
Sharing his son’s views, Piers tweeted: “Once again, I remind you it’s not about young healthy people like you getting it… but who you/they give it to, as we are now seeing in rapidly rising & very worrying numbers in the UK.”
However, Piers’ son hit back with a tongue-in-cheek reference to his father’s new book.
Spencer replied: “Nothing to do with the point I was making. Wake up Piers.”
His father’s new book, Wake Up, sees Piers argue that the ‘liberal’ war on free speech is a more dangerous threat to modern life than the coronavirus pandemic.
