Piers Morgan bonds with climate activist who also walked off GMB
Continuing the trend of interviewing controversial people for his new show, Piers Morgan announced he would be interviewing a Taliban spokesperson on his show Piers Morgan Uncensored, and everyone made the same gag.
On Tuesday, Morgan, 57, revealed his exclusive interview with Suhail Shaheen in a tweet and added, "I will interview the official Taliban spokesman 🔥."
Since overthrowing the government, the Taliban has made headlines with their strict rules that contradict promises the group originally made. When the Taliban assumed power, they promised less repressive leadership and maintaining women's rights, such as allowing girls to go to school.
However, the group has banned girls from attending school above sixth grade, forced women to cover themselves, and began enforcing male chaperons to accompany women.
It is becoming more clear to the world that the organization has no intention of upholding promises made.
Whether or not Morgan will address this with Shaheen is unclear, but the talk show host seemingly has no problem bringing up polarizing topics.
