Kirstie Allsopp’s Twitter rant about scaremongering kids over the COVID crisis has been blasted by Piers Morgan as ‘cretinous’.
Piers Morgan blasts Kirstie Allsopp for ‘cretinous’ COVID tweets: Kirstie, star of ‘Location, Location, Location’ had taken to her social media account to view her disappointment in the BBC regarding scaring children by saying greater numbers of kids are being admitted to hospitals, which she branded ‘a lie’. Morgan, outspoken in his role on Good Morning Britain, said that Allsopp was the person he “least wanted to hear from” regarding her views over the coronavirus pandemic.
Kirstie had tweeted that “Covid is a horrible disease but it is very, very, very rare for it to impact children. They are still at far more danger from journeys in cars, or swimming, or trampolining than Covid. Please do not let anyone persuade you otherwise.” Her comment caused a huge row between those that agreed with her and those that thought she was mising the point that children can transmit the virus to parents and grandparents easily. Outspoken Morgan did not hold back as he tweeted “Of all the people I least want to hear from when it comes to expert advice on coronavirus, TV estate agent Kirstie Allsopp and her cretinous trampoline analogies are top of the list.”
As many argued with Allsopp regarding school closures and transmitting of the virus by children she replied “God help this generation of kids who are so loathed and feared.” Allsopp closed down the argument when she tweeted “Call me when the BBC Twitter accounts have stopped using this platform to frighten parents, grandparents and children. Until then this is no place for me. Covid is a horrible disease, to control it we have to accept all sorts of limitations, but scaring kids is unacceptable.”
