In December, the formerGood Morning Britainpresenter’s account shared the posts about Sheeran and other public figures to his 8.3 million followers.
Now, the presenter has called the posts “abusive nonsense” in a tweet sent on Monday morning (9 December).
Alongside a picture of Sheeran, Morgan tweeted: “By the way, apologies for all the abusive nonsense posted on my feed after I was hacked (yes, yes, do your own jokes) on Boxing Day.”
He continued: “And in particular to @edsheeran who I think is a very gifted singer-songwriter with a fine head of hair, not a ‘ginger p****’’
According to reports, Morgan’s account had originally shared posts on Boxing Day, which contained false information, racial slurs and abusive messages directed at the late Queen.
The apology comes as the presenter made his return to Twitter after the hacking.
Morgan, who uses the platform to regularly share his views, also tweeted his thoughts on the Duke of Sussex’s recent interview with ITV.
On Sunday night (8 December) he wrote: “I seem to recall being forced out of my job at @GMB for disbelieving Harry and Meghan’s unsubstantiated racism claims against the Royal Family.
“Now he’s finally admitted there was no racism, two questions: a) Do I get my old job back? b) Why should we believe a word they say?,” he questioned.
The former journalist began hosting his own TalkTV show in April last year after leaving Good Morning Britain over a controversial on-air row about Harry and Meghan’s Oprah Winfrey interview.
