Before Monday’s show got underway, Underwood tweeted that the show would ‘look openly at what happened and how we hope to move forward.’
Morgan, who is DailyMail.com’s Editor-at-Large tweeted ‘What a shameless fraud,’ is response to the video message that was posted online.
During the show, Underwood tearfully claimed she has been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following her heated on-air clash with Sharon Osbourne.

The Talk returned from a month-long hiatus after Sharon Osbourne’s controversial exit. Sheryl Underwood said the panel looked forward to ‘healing’
‘I feel like I’m in PTSD, because it was a trauma, and I feel like I want to get past this,’ she said.
It led to another Twitter response from Morgan who wrote in a second message: ‘Oh what a crock of sh*t.

Before the show started, Underwood gave a message to viewers:
After Underwood explained her PTSD symptoms following the fight with Osbourne, Morgan followed up once against tweeting,’Oh what a crock of sh*t.’
‘As you may know, during our break, Sharon decided to leave The Talk. We need to process the events of that day and what happened since, so we can get to the healing.
‘Over the next hour, we will honestly discuss what occurred and explore some of our feelings. And we’ll also show you how anyone can become more comfortable discussing important issues and having difficult conversations. By the end of the hour, we want everyone to feel empowered and ready to move forward. So, let’s start talking.’
During Monday’s show, Underwood also took part in a ‘trust exercise’ – giving direct eye contact to her co-hosts – which she described as feeling as though she was in a ‘safe space.’

Morgan spoke out on Monday in his first sit-down interview since being forced to leave
‘There’s a real sickening hypocrisy. I’m staggered Sheryl Underwood’s still on that show,’ said Morgan. ‘But there lies the hypocrisy in the heart of this debate.’
‘I know Sheryl Underwood. I’ve been on that show many times. She knows I’m not a racist. She knows that. So, she deliberately did what she did to create a firestorm with Sharon who defended me passionately,’ he continued.
‘And the one who has to leave is not the person falsely accusing Sharon’s friend of being a racist with no evidence. It’s Sharon for defending me against the fake charge,’ said Morgan.
Osbourne was forced to quid after defending Piers Morgan for saying he didn’t believe Meghan Markle was suicidal, leading to a heated exchange between herself and Underwood
‘That to me is outrageous. And Americans should be outraged. This is show called “The Talk” and because Sharon talked the truth, not anyone else’s truth or even her truth, just the truth, I hadn’t said racist things, because she said that she had to go. And I found that just so disgraceful,’ he added.
Last month, Morgan became the target of online outrage and accusations of racism after stating that he did not believe key claims made by Meghan Markle in her interview with Oprah Winfrey, including that a senior Royal made racist comments about her son Archie’s skin tone, and that Palace staff rebuffed her attempts to seek counseling when she had suicidal thoughts.
He was forced out of his job at UK breakfast show GMB when he refused to back down from his position, and the controversy spread to the U.S. when Osbourne was forced to leave her long-time role at The Talk after defending Morgan’s right to his opinion.
After Osbourne spoke out on Twitter to defend Morgan, a heated on-air exchange followed in which her co-hosts accused Morgan of ‘unconscious racism’ and slammed her for supporting him.
Piers Morgan has praised his friend Sharon Osbourne for defending his right to an opinion even at the cost of her job, accusing CBS of ‘hypocrisy’ for forcing her out at The Talk
‘She was taken down very deliberately and it was all because she dared to tweet that I was entitled to my opinion,’ Morgan said. ‘And then because she said that on Twitter, she was attacked on her own show by her co-host who said that [her defense of me] effectively was her supporting someone who said racist things.’
‘When Sharon got annoyed and said, well, what did he say that was racist? They couldn’t say anything because I never had. And yet now, Sharon’s gone, too. So I — I look at this – this cancel culture, it’s a real thing,’ he continued.
‘This woke mob want to cancel people who do not follow their narratives and it’s got increasingly dangerous,’ Morgan said.
Morgan slammed claims that his criticism of Meghan Markle was racially motivated, and noted that his critics offered no specific examples of any racist remarks on his part.
‘What did I say that was racist? What have I ever said that’s ever been even remotely construable as racist towards Meghan Markle?’ he asked.
‘When it really mattered, when the chips were down for me, she was there, she was a loyal friend. And my God has she paid for that loyalty,’ Morgan said of Osbourne (with him above)
CBS said in a statement confirming Osbourne’s departure: ‘The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home’
‘Now, Sharon Osbourne said it could be, I just don’t like her. And I don’t like her because I think she’s causing enormous damage to my country and its reputation and to the monarchy, which I love, and to the Royal Family and the Queen,’ Morgan continued.
‘I thought it took enormous courage by Sharon in the middle of my firestorm… Sharon went on Twitter immediately, within one hour of the news breaking that I’d gone and defended me and my right to have an opinion,’ Morgan said.
‘She didn’t agree with everything I’ve said. She was already on the record from the day before as saying she disagreed with me about a lot of things,’ Morgan said. ‘But, when it really mattered, when the chips were down for me, she was there, she was a loyal friend. And my God has she paid for that loyalty.’
Osbourne, who managed the solo career of her rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne for decades, first gained national fame of her own with the debut of the MTV reality show The Osbournes in 2002.
She went on to become a panelist on America’s Got Talent, alongside Morgan, before joining The Talk in its premier season in 2010.
Before her departure, she had been the last remaining co-host from The Talk’s original lineup.
Morgan had said he did not believe Meghan Markle’s remarks in the Oprah interview, in which she accused the Royal Family of racism and said she was driven to suicidal thoughts
