Piers Morgan is going after Naomi Osaka once more. Months after bashing the Japanese-born tennis star for blaming the media for her mental health issues, the former Good Morning Britain host couldn’t help but criticize Osaka’s Met Gala ensemble.
“Speaking of frauds, tennis star Naomi Osaka has spent most of the year whining, crying, throwing racket-breaking tantrums on court, and blaming the media for her poor form and mental health issues,” Morgan wrote on his column for The Daily Mail.
“Yet last night she rocked up, as sulky-faced as ever, to parade in front of the world’s media in an outrageous Louis Vuitton outfit that screamed ‘GIVE ME ATTENTION!’”

He continued, “I’d say what I really think about it,” he wrote. “But the woke brigade would only accuse me of being a sexist racist bully and order me to ‘LEAVE HER ALONE!’ Suffice it to say, the dress would been better suited to a horror-themed Halloween party.”
Morgan continued to add his fashion knowledge by comparing Osaka to adolescent tennis player Emma Raducanu, “Wore a fun, glamorous black-and-white Chanel ensemble that was entirely appropriate for a girl of 18.”
Morgan has a long-standing grudge against Osaka. In July, the controversial British commentator couldn’t understand why the tennis player had to withdraw from tournament play due to mental health issues, but she was still happy to be on the cover of Time Magazine.
Morgan went after Osaka again earlier this month, calling her a “spoiled brat” when she threw an on-court rage during the US Open. Her mental health issues have been well-documented, with media interviews cited as a source of anxiety. In recent months, Osaka has been seen crying in front of the media on several occasions.
Osaka returned to the court to represent Japan at the Tokyo Olympics after withdrawing from the French Open and Wimbledon. Osaka announced she will be taking another hiatus from tennis after her latest incident at the US Open.
