PIERS Morgan has lashed out at “disgusting” grime artist Wiley over his anti-semitic rant.

The 55-year-old has also called on Twitter to take permanent action against him after a just a 12-hour ban.

Piers tweeted: “Shame on you, Wiley.

“You’ve exposed yourself as a disgusting anti-Semitic racist who’s spent the past 24hrs inspiring people to hate Jews & even be violent towards them.

“The fact @twitter has let you do that & continues to let you spew your vile abuse, is equally disgraceful.”

Wiley was dropped by his manager over his anti-Semitic rant online last night, including shocking comments branding Jewish people “too touchy,” and saying Israel “is not yours.”

He revealed he had been banned temporarily from the social media site – and his tweets are no “unavailable” to view.

Wiley’s manager, John Woolf, confirmed A-List Management had “cut all ties” with the musician.

Mr Woolf, who is Jewish, wrote on Twitter today: “Following Wiley’s antisemitic tweets today we at @A_ListMGMT have cut all ties with him. There is no place in society for antisemitism.”

Among the under-fire tweets, Wiley wrote: “If you work for a company owned by 2 Jewish men and you challenge the Jewish community in anyway of course you will get fired.”

He also said: “Red necks are the KKK and Jewish people are the Law…Work that out.”

Another tweet stated: “In fact there are 2 sets of people who nobody has really wanted to challenge Jewish & KKK but being in business for 20 years you start to understand why.”

The artist continued: “Jewish community ya too touchy anyway Israel is not yours hold that”.

The Campaign Against Antisemitism has now asked police to investigate the content and called for Wiley’s accounts to be shut down “to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish venom”.

Wiley, known as the Godfather of Grime, received an MBE for services to music in 2018.

He is now facing calls to be stripped of the honour by the Campaign Against Antisemitism.

A spokesperson said: “Our Crime Unit has reported this matter to the Metropolitan Police Service as we consider that Wiley has committed the offence of incitement to racial hatred, which can carry a substantial prison sentence.

“We have additionally asked Twitter and Facebook, which owns Instagram, to close down his accounts which have hundreds of thousands of followers, to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish venom.”
