Piers Morgan tears into tattooed school Headteacher who gets defended by parents in response

February 24, 2021

Good Morning presenter, Piers Morgan, is well known for his controversial opinions. This week, the focus was on a tattooed headteacher to be in the firing line. 

Piers Morgan, 55, suggested that people with tattoos should not be hired within the teaching sector on Tuesday’s show. However, many viewers took to the teacher’s defence, calling Piers ‘judgemental’.

It was not only viewers that stuck up for him, but parents that knew him from the school he worked at defended him too. 

The controversial comments came after Piers Morgan and co-star Susana Reid’s discussion on the headteacher’s decision to remove a few historical figures from the curriculum.

Lee Hill, who is headteacher at Howden Junior School, wants colonial figures such as Sir Walter Raleigh, Admiral Nelson and Francis Drake to be removed. Mr Hill wants students to choose figures they wanted to study, including the likes of Greta Thunberg, Marcus Rashford and Malala Yousafzai.

Piers began to rant about Mr Hill’s decisions and his “lack of standards” from being “covered in Beckham-style tattoos”.

On the show, Piers Morgan said, “I think young people should be told this, they should be told who Lord Nelson was and why most pubs in the country are called Lord Nelson.

“Why have we cancelled him?”

Susana Reid replied: “Well, it’s one school, and they have decided to have new, contemporary heroes, that their houses are named after.”

Piers then remarked: “People say, ‘Why bang on about his tattoos?’ I am sorry but when I was at school, you couldn’t have a headteacher with a bunch of tattoos.

“It just shows a lack of standards, Lord Nelson wouldn’t have allowed it.”

Susana asked: “What do you mean lack of standards?”

Piers then stated: “I just don’t think headteachers should be covered in Beckham-style tattoos.

“I don’t like it, I come from an era where appearance matters, you should set an example, you don’t want turn all our kids into ink-splattered tattoo blobs do you?”

According to Hull Live, many parents whose children are at the school have said he is a “fantastic teacher”.

One parent said: “I can only go on my own personal experience of my son in his school and quite honestly I can stand for the vast majority of parents and the community that, as a headteacher, he is outstanding.

“He turned around my son’s whole attitude and school life, he has climbed over all the Covid hurdles and still put the children’s best interests at heart in every way he possibly could.”

Many others took to Twitter to express their feelings on the rant. 

One tweeted: “Piers Moron showing himself up for the judgemental p***k he is bleating his views on tattoos.”

Another said, “Well Piers, people can have their tattoos lasered off if they so wish, but you will always remain an a***hole. #GMB,” 

“And this is totally what teachers need right now. A debate about their appearance.” said a third.
