Piers Morgan’s popularity continues to plummet - not only is the petition calling for him to be deported now on more than 61,000 signatures, but Jeremy Clarkson has weighed into the fray, issuing a public plea that the chat show host is NOT returned to Britain.
The row erupted after CNN host Morgan attacked the right to bear arms in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre.
A gun lobby petition to deport Morgan is now well over the required threshold of 25,000 signatories – meaning the White House has an obligation to respond.
Now Morgan’s geographical location is on even shakier ground, after Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson tweeted a plea that the former British tabloid editor is not returned to his homeland.
