Piers Morgan says Greggs fans ‘need a psychiatrist’ as 800 stores reopen

Safe to say he isn't a sausage roll fan!

Controversial breakfast TV host Piers Morgan has laid into Greggs fans as 800 of the chain’s stores reopen.

Posting on Twitter, Piers said he thinks fans of the chain “need a psychiatrist”.

The Good Morning Britain host took aim at a colleague who revealed Brits would soon be able to satisfy their cravings for the bakery’s vegan sausage rolls.

Never one to keep his opinions to himself, the fact vegan sausage rolls were mentioned clearly riled Piers.

He said: “If you still have vegan sausage roll cravings after three months of lockdown, you need a psychiatrist not Greggs.”

Discriminative and prejudice!” said one of Piers’ followers.

If you still have vegan sausage roll cravings after three months of lockdown, you need a psychiatrist not Greggs.

“I thought @piersmorgan was all for equality and not shaming people for their beliefs, cultures or religions?” they added.

“If someone wants to be vegan Piers, that’s their choice,” another stated.

“That rich Piers, coming from a man that sat in line for an hour to get a Mcdonald’s,” another pointed out.

I don’t care how much they trigger you, @GreggsOfficial vegan sausage rolls are amazing,” another stated.

“If you’re still hating on vegan sausage rolls after all this time, you need a psychiatrist,” another told Piers.

“Not the sausage roll thing again, Piers. You’ve been doing so well!” another quipped.

Others accused Piers of working with Greggs to promote the brand.

“How many veggie sausage rolls are Greggs paying you to promote them?” asked one.

“I thought his contract with them would have run out by now. Guess they need a boost again now they’re opening up,” another joked.
