You can always count on Piers Morgan sparking a reaction on Twitter.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang received a red in the Crystal Palace v Arsenal game this afternoon and any fair-minded Gooner will accept it was deserved, but not Piers Morgan of course.
There can be a debate about the use of VAR, the refs tendency to be harsher on Arsenal players and so forth but to suggest it was anything other than a red card tackle opens yourself up to ridicule.
That is exactly what Morgan got following his response to the sending off

Well, that certainly got a response and I had to do some serious scrolling to find anyone that supported his view.
What I found was a mixture of hilarity, abuse images and videos.

Perhaps after the game they will change the red card back into a yellow again after finding out Aubameyang is actually a nice guy and not a dirty player.
Your arguments are so lame man.

That was a red, and I'm an arsenal fan saying that.

And on it went.
Normally I would say Piers is on a wind-up mission but this was a very quick tweet following the incident and you just know he meant every word.
