A US Republican Party politician has sensationally ended a live TV interview with Piers Morgan – because of gay marriage.
Christine O’Donnell stormed off the set of Piers Morgan Tonight yeasterday, objecting to to the presenter’s questions about same-sex marriage.
Appearing on the programme to promote her new book Trouble Maker, she became uncomfortable when Morgan quizzed her over her view on homosexuality.
O’Donnell was on the show to promote her memoir Trouble Maker, but got bothered when the CNN host started to focus on questions about her views on abstinence and gay marriage.
Arguing that Morgan should keep his questions directed toward her book, she said: “Let’s not even go there,” reminding him that she’s “here to talk about my book.”
Pressing her on the issue, she responded: “I’m not being weird, you’re being a little rude,” before storming off the show’s set.
Shortly after, Morgan Tweeted: “Ms. O’Donnell wasn’t happy about me quizzing her re views on witchcraft and sex. But really flipped at gay marriage Qs. Ripped mike and fled.
“My first ever walk-out in 25 years of interviews,” he continued. “I guess viewers can decide if I was ‘rude’ or not tonight at 9pm ET. #CNN”
