Piers Morgan Denies That His Book Has Sold Less Than 6000 Copies Despite Having Millions Of Twitter Followers

December 8, 2021 / Posted by:

Piers Morgan is like the human equivalent of an anal fissure bursting while you’re driving on the highway in bumper-to-bumper traffic and you’re almost out of gas and you’re also late to a work meeting. And I think that people have caught on to that! Because The New York Times reports that his book about “woke” culture, Wake Up: Why the World Has Gone Nuts, has sold 5,650 print copies. The Times notes that Piers has 8 million Twitter followers, so I think we can officially call his book a flop. But Piers denies it and The New York Times has since clarified their article to say he has sold 5,640 copies in the US, thankyouverymuch.

The New York Times has a big article out about how lots of people with millions and millions of social media followers apparently can’t sell a book to save their lives. 5,650 print copies of Wake Up have been sold since its publication a year ago–based on industry data compiled by BookScan. But Piers isn’t the only person who’s famous online and nobody cares to read a book from. Justin Timberlake‘s Hindsight: & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me from 2018 has sold only 100,000 copies, even though he has 62.6 million Instagram followers. But I mean, Instagram? That’s for people who specifically don’t want to read things? Oh wait, he has 63 million Twitter followers too. Womp-womp, I guess no one gives a shit!

But the thing is, giant troll Piers is getting a taste of his troll medicine. Indy100 says that writers who don’t have millions of followers roasted Piers because they outsold his ass in spades:

Of course, Piers is defending himself and claims he’s actually sold hundreds of thousands of books worldwide and The New York Times posted a clarification:

I wonder what Piers’ next written masterpiece will be about. This last one lambasted “woke” people, so what else does Piers hate? Hmm, my guesses for his next book are: “Women: Why Fat Ones Are Disgusting And Should Be Shunned And Smart Ones Need To Shut The Fuck Up,” or Meghan Markle Is An Evil Bitch: How One Woman Lied About Her Mental Health To Personally Spite Me.” But in the meantime, maybe he should ask his bestie, Sharon Osbourne, to buy a few copies of his book at Barnes & Nobles to help him out with US book sales.
