Meghan Markle was among thousands of people who made a formal complaint to British broadcaster ITV about Piers Morgan’s comments on her mental health on Good Morning Britain.
According to CNN, Meghan’s complaint to ITV concerned the impact Morgan’s comments could have on others and how it could degrade the seriousness of mental health issues.
The complaint did not relate to the personal nature of Morgan’s attacks.
Markle revealed during the explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that life as a British Royal made her suicidal. But in Monday’s edition of Good Morning Britain, Morgan suggested Markle was lying.
His comments sparked a huge controversy in Britain, and he was rebuked by mental health charity Mind.
UK media regulator Ofcom said it had received over 41,000 complaints about Monday’s edition of “Good Morning Britain,” and had launched an investigation under its “harm and offence rules.”
On Tuesday, ITV announced that Morgan has resigned.
