British presenter Piers Morgan initially had harsh words for Ariana Grande in the wake of the Manchester Arena attack that took the lives of 22 and injured scores more. In the days after the devastating terror incident, the opinionated Good Morning Britain co-host tweeted criticism of the singer for returning home instead of visiting victims, comments that, in turn, drew condemnation of Morgan for lashing out at such an emotional time for Grande and his nation. (Grande made a surprise visit to young injured fans at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday (June 2), just days before the show.)
But following Grande's touching One Love Manchester all-star tribute show on Sunday (June 4) at the city's Old Trafford Cricket Ground, the blustering Morgan uncharacteristically swallowed his pride and apologized. "I misjudged you, @ArianaGrande & I apologise," Morgan wrote in a tweet that featured an image of Grande hugging a young girl affected by the tragedy. "You're an admirable young woman & this is magnificent night. Respect."
