Twitter users, able to send messages to high-profile pages and respond directly to celebrity posts, are often exceptionally candid in expressing their disdain for notable personalities.

U.K. firm Demos recently seized on this phenomenon in conducting a study to find out which of the nation’s prominent citizens are the most hated. After poring over two million posts, The Sunday Times reported that the think tank awarded Piers Morgan with the dubious distinction.

The Brit’s foray into U.S. media included a transition from snarky reality show judge to an inauspicious stint as the host of his own CNN program. He was roundly criticized by Americans for interjecting his opinion on issues – primarily as an advocate for stricter gun control – in this country while maintaining his ties to his England.

As it turns out, though, his unpopularity is not confined to this side of the pond. Nearly nine percent of the tweets directed at Morgan are abusive, the study found, noting that the leftist mouthpiece’s willingness to lambaste others has likely contributed to his status as most hated user.

Compared to the least hated users, for whom negative sentiments comprised less than half a percent of all incoming tweets, the level of animosity many hold toward Morgan is clear. He seemed to embrace the status to some extent, however, offering a number of tweets apparently in response to the study’s results.

For good measure, he continued to liberally sprinkle anti-gun posts as per usual.
