Twitter users seemed to welcome the Sunday morning drama. Within hours, Paul Joseph Watson was a trending search term. Twitter user and fellow YouTuber @DavidJBradley1 even called it the highlight of his quarantine so far.
In Watson’s initial tweets, which include a screenshot showing Morgan blocked Watson, the YouTuber says he was blocked by Morgan because he’d become more popular than him and “definitely more attractive.”
Watson takes to name-calling the journalist and says his “entire career is based around pretending to be annoyed by anything, including vegan fucking sausage rolls.”
Watson continues to insult Morgan in a series of tweets.
Content producer @Mike_P_Williams, who is ironically blocked by Watson on Twitter, called Watson’s tweets an “epic (but concerning) meltdown.”
Others reactions on the platform are a mixed bag.
In his only tweet about the situation, Morgan called Watson “a repulsive, racist, far-right, Muslim-hating, conspiracy theorist imbecile” and said he welcomes the YouTuber’s disapproval.
