In one of his tweets, Piers Morgan noted that he has interviewed thousands of people over the years, and that a “tiny number” of those people “later turned out to be sex offenders".
Prominent English journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan has sought to clarify the circumstances in which he was caught on camera with Ghislaine Maxwell several years ago.
Morgan delivered his explanation on Twitter not long after Maxwell was handed a guilty verdict by the US Federal District Court House on several counts of sex trafficking.
Addressing all the people who "gleefully" sent him the photo in question, the journalist stated that he met Maxwell “at a book launch in New York in 2013".

"We spoke for five minutes about her father Bob who once owned the Daily Mirror [which Morgan edited from 1995 to 2004]," he added. "She seemed nice. Obviously, she's a monster. Sadly, I'm not a psychic. Hope this helps."

Although a number of social media users seemed to accept Morgan’s response, there were those who brought up other photos featuring Morgan in the company of individuals whose reputation at best is questionable, such as former film producer and convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.
Some netizens pointed out in response, however, that it was Morgan’s job as the “editor of a major UK tabloid” to “meet people & represent the paper.”
In another tweet, Morgan himself also remarked that he interviewed thousands of people over the years, and that a “tiny number” of those people “later turned out to be sex offenders".
“If you could tell me which of today's public figures are likely to be exposed for sex crimes in the future, it would help me work out who to pose with - thanks!” he added.
Ghislaine Maxwell is a former associate of the late Jeffrey Epstein, disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who was found dead in 2019 in his prison cell in New York where he was awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking of minors.
In July 2020, Maxwell was arrested in the United States and stood trial on charges of procuring underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein, with the guilty verdict being announced by the court shortly before the end of the year 2021.
