Piers Morgan has slammed people taking part in the " coronavirus challenge," which sees them licking toilets and called for them to be "charged with attempted murder".
Taking to his official Twitter account, the 54-year-old Good Morning Britain presenter quote retweeted a video of a man licking a toilet as part of the gruesome challenge, which has gone viral and has been widely slammed.
In the video, the man walks into what appears to be a public bathroom, leans down next to a toilet and then licks the seat.
Clearly licking the seat, the man then looks up and says: "Coronavirus challenge."
Sharing the video with his 7.1million followers, Piers wrote above the video: "These people need to be arrested and charged with attempted murder."
He added: "I'm serious."
Piers followers rushed to share their opinions and thoughts.
One tweeted: "What an absolute donkey of a human."
A second wrote: "Agree – there will be too many idiots out there doing more of this."
Another said: "They are SO focused on coronavirus, that they forgot they could catch sth much MUCH worse! Good luck IDIOTS."
"I'm betting he bleached that entire seat before turning on the camera and licking it," said a fourth.
However, not all of Piers fans agreed, one hit back: "He licked a toilet seat and you want to charge him with attempted murder. You insane man!"
