He had a spate recently with Sophie Turner who is 22 and an actress in Game of Thrones. She called him a t**t for his views on mental health.
When Coronation Street star Beverly Callard, 61 discussed mental health in an article in The Sun, she said:

“Real mental illness is very dark and it takes a great deal of strength to ask for help. I think we are now definitely chipping away at the stigma.”

She added:

But we have to be careful mental illness doesn’t become like a Gucci handbag. There is a danger it can become fashionable.”

In response, Piers tweeted:

“She’ll be hammered for saying this, but it’s 100% true.”

Sophie commented:

“Or maybe they have a platform to speak out about it and help get rid of the stigma of mental illness which affects 1 in 4 people in the UK per year.
“But please go ahead and shun them back into silence. T**t.”
