Morgan was then asked if "upper-level people" were the ones to reach out to him, but his response was vague.

"Well, I’m not going to go into who it was," he replied. "But what I can say is gratitude for someone who was standing up for me."

The star quit Good Morning Britain in the wake of the backlash he received after sharing his harsh opinions about Markle. The network received 57,000 complaints against him, including one allegedly from the actress herself.

"It's not racist to disbelieve Meghan Markle — don't give a damn about her skin color," he reiterated. "I do care about the veracity of what she was saying."

But Morgan claims that along with the hate, he has plenty of people in his corner as well.

"I had a lot of support privately from a lot of people, a lot of support publicly from well-known people," he insisted, naming recently fired The Talk star Sharon Osbourne as one of them.

"My wife's always been completely supportive about this, but she hates the online abuse," he noted. "The idea my sons had to be targeted by so-called liberals in a way that was threatening to them, abusive to them … completely disgusting."

"All I can say is there were 57,000 complaints against me, which were drive by an online mob that came for me all day, came for members of my family, who were abusing my sons all day long, issuing death threats to them," he continued.

"I'm not a racist — nothing I’ve ever said about Meghan Markle is racist or racially motivated," he declared. "I’ve been very critical of Prince Harry, and last time I checked he was white … and so I find this narrative deeply offensive."
