Piers Morgan and Jameela Jamil: they both look fine but one of them has a serioius disability. Yes, Piers Morgan is hopelessly bigoted.

When This Writer learned that a person with one of the so-called “invisible” disabilities was being victimised by Piers Morgan, I made a remark to a friend about what should happen to it and forgot about it.

But here’s the thing: this comes in a week when we’ve learned that the Department for Work and Pensions is deliberately hiding evidence that it has been victimising people with disabilities – some of them to their death.

Ministers have been seen smirking about it during debates.

And of course we’re living under a government that has actively “othered” people with disabilities, demonising them to the point where people think it is acceptable to mock, humiliate, and even attack them.

Considering all of the above, I think it would be appropriate for Mr Morgan to spend some time living with the pain of a hidden disability.

Perhaps somebody at ITV should apply a jubilee clip to Mr Morgan’s reproductive organs prior to the airing of Good Morning Britain one day, and we can all see how far he gets before the pain becomes too much.

I reckon that would constitute a fair approximation of a hidden disability.

I don’t think he’d last very long. I would like to think it might instil in him a little respect for people who have to deal with that level of pain, all over their bodies, every single day of their lives.

But that’s probably a forlorn hope, isn’t it?

Piers Morgan has been ‘inciting hate‘ against sick and disabled people after he attacked a disabled actress. Morgan claimed she was making her illnesses up.

Jameela Jamil is an actress, model, and presenter. She’s chronically ill, having had three cancer scares in recent years, several car accidents, seizures, and a nut allergy.

But her main illness is one which is still under-recognised and misunderstood. Jamil lives with one of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS).

Recently, Jamil has been the target of abuse from Morgan on Twitter… trying to claim that Jamil’s been making her illnesses up.
