In the wake of his exit from the talk show, "Good Morning Britain," English broadcaster Piers Morgan clapped back at haters in a new photo of him rocking a daisy crown.

Former "Good Morning Britain" host Piers Morgan seemingly has an unusual hobby to pass the time following his exit from the show after a five-year stint.

The English broadcaster's exit came in the wake of his negative comments about Meghan Markle, following her controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.

TO ALL "MY" HATERS

On Monday, Morgan took to his Instagram to clap back at haters who have targeted him and his family over his remarks about the duchess in recent times. Sharing a picture of himself donning a daisy headband in a colorful garden, Morgan wrote:

"To my haters. Peace out."

He concluded the caption with a series of emojis, including the peace sign, the sun, and a bouquet. The icon could be seen rocking a subtle smirk in the picture, barely noticeable underneath his sunshades.

FANS GOT HIS BACK

Following his cheeky clap back, fans of the star utilized the comment section to urge him on. One fan attempted light humor, noting how admirable it was to picture the broadcaster's newest pastime as sitting in the gardens and making daisy crowns.

He understood the repercussions of speaking out.

Another commended him for embracing the "flower power," while others applauded his bravery for speaking out, buttressing how much they missed him on "GMB."

HIS SONS WERE NOT LEFT OUT

Although fans believed his comment about Meghan Markle simply as exercising the right to free speech, many have negative opinions about it, with most tagging him as racist.

Since criticizing the duchess's Oprah interview, the entertainment icon has received harassments and death-threats from Meghan supporters. While he understood the repercussions of speaking out, he never bargained for his kids to be at the receiving end of his actions.

In his Mail on Sunday column, the journalist revealed that netizens were targeting his three sons over his actions. He explained how his boys continuously received venomous abuse and violent threats from angry fans of the Sussexes over their father's comments.

THE AFTERMATH OF MARKLE'S INTERVIEW

As most may recall, ITV announced Morgan's impromptu decision to leave "GMB" on March 9. The decision came after the host questioned some of the "Suits" alum's revelations during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

He also called out the duchess for portraying the British royal family in a negative light. Shortly after his exit, "The Talk" co-host Sharon Osbourne came to his defense, insisting sharing his views did not make him racist.

However, Osbourne's utterances also led to the termination of her contract with CBS, hence, getting ousted from "The Talk." Morgan later described the unprecedented move as "the new woke of tyranny."

Markle and Prince Harry's Oprah interview may be long past, but its ripples would reverberate throughout the world for a long time, setting new standards.
