Brian Moore puts Piers Morgan in his place over ‘mental health’ on Twitter

Brian Moore has blasted Piers Morgan on Twitter after he brutally criticised Olympic star Simone Biles for ‘mental health issues’

The American withdrew from the team and all-around events at the Tokyo Olympics, it was headline news across the US and the world.

Biles, who is a sexual assault survivor, spoke about the importance of preserving her mental health and the need to “protect our minds and our bodies,” adding: “We are people, at the end of the day.”

Morgan questioned whether mental health issues had become “the go-to excuse for any poor performance in elite sport.”

His criticism concluded by saying “kids need strong role models not this nonsense.”

Moore responded, saying: “This is from a man unable to withstand 30 secs of mild criticism from his weatherman before quitting. Kids need people who don’t belittle mental health as role models.”
