Piers Morgan left viewers with a sour taste in their mouths as he mocked the Chinese language while discussing Peter Phillips’ Royal milk ad on Good Morning Britain. The TV presenter left co-host Susanna Reid stunned as he started making noises in an attempt to mimic the language. Despite her protests, Piers remained defiant, and said: ‘I don’t know the Chinese for “I only drink…” What’s it called? Ching chang cho jo.’ ‘Taking the mickey out of other languages is pretty 1970s,’ Susanna told him. ‘Surely you can take the mickey out of it! He’s using ching chang chong milk from the Chinese state – that’s what they said in the advert!’ ‘No, they’re speaking Chinese!’ Susanna protested.
‘No, they’re speaking Chinese!’ Susanna protested.
‘I can’t repeat what they’re saying in the ad,’ he continued. ‘I cant speak Chinese! I’m trying to mimic the wording of that advertisement.’ ‘By the way, it’s not me trying to flog the Chinese State milk!’ he continued. ‘Are people going to be more annoyed about me trying to mimic the Chinese State milk ad, than they are about a member of the Royal family trying to flog Chinese State milk?’
