British TV personality Piers Morgan on Wednesday doubled down on the criticism of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex in his typical style.

英國電視名嘴皮爾斯.摩根週三以他最典型的方式,加碼他對薩塞克斯公爵夫人梅根的批評。

He dug in his heels, refused to apologize, and announced he’d be back.

他打死不退,拒絕道歉,並宣布將回鍋。

"On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah Winfrey i terview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t," he tweeted.

「我週一說我不相信梅根在歐普拉專訪(中的發言)。我花了些時間深思過(我的)這個觀點,我(現在)還是不(相信梅根),」他在推特上寫道。

Morgan resigned on Tuesday after he seemingly crossed a line — not for the first time — when he said he "didn’t believe a word" Meghan told Winfrey in her interview alleging mistreatment by Buckingham Palace, specifically her assertion that she felt suicidal and was offered no help.

摩根週二請辭,此前他看似越線—(但)這已非他首度越線—指稱他對於梅根在指控遭白金漢宮苛待的專訪中告訴歐普拉的話,「一個字也不信」,特別是她堅稱曾想自我了斷與無人伸援。
