Piers Morgan poked the hornets’ nest Sunday when he highlighted a double standard among Muhammad Ali’s fans — that the late boxer espoused more radical views on race than Donald Trump.

The tweet quickly brought a swarm of social justice outrage, but Morgan did not back down. He argued that Ali was an important voice in the civil rights movement, but that is no reason to whitewash statements far more radical than Trump’s on race and immigration.

Morgan shared a video of Ali denouncing miscegenation during a BBC interview.

He then trolled the hate mob with this taunt — that no amount of screeching would make him apologize.
