Piers Morgan angry after Adil Ray mocks him on HIGNFY

Adil technically fired the first shot by joking that the best part of replacing Piers on Good Morning Britain is that "you don't have to meet Piers Morgan". Slightly shady, but light-hearted, right? Piers didn't find it funny, going much harsher on Twitter by claiming that Adil was actually hurting the show's ratings.
