Piers Morgan Apologizes For Criticizing Ariana Grande After Manchester Attack
It seems as if Ariana Grande won one of her critics over Sunday when she returned to Manchester and held a benefit for the 22 people killed at one of her recent concerts.
The day after a suicide bomber carried out an attack at Grande’s May 22 show in Manchester, the “broken” singer returned to the United States. At the time, “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan criticized Grande for failing to visit the victims of the attack, Fox News reports. Now it sounds as if the singer has changed Morgan’s mind.
The 23-year-old pop star held a benefit concert in Manchester on Sunday which raised over $13 million for a relief fund for the victims of the May 22 attack. Grande also visited the fans who were injured that day in the hospital ahead of her One Love Manchester show.

Morgan admitted that he “misjudged” the singer and apologized for doing so. “You’re an admirable young woman & this is a magnificent night,” he said in a tweet on Sunday. “Respect.”
Grande was joined by fellow singers Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus among others at Sunday’s benefit show at Old Trafford stadium. The artists decided to carry on with the show despite another terrorist incident in London on Saturday that left seven people dead.
