Following the reported “gun shots” in Oxford Circus on Friday night (November 24), Olly Murs and Piers Morgan engaged in a Twitter feud regarding misinformation. James Blunt recently sided with Murs slamming Morgan in a tweet.
Despite initial reports of gunfire, it has been announced that there has been no evidence found of any shots being fired and armed police have been stood down.
Piers Morgan tweeted at Murs telling the singer to “stop tweeting” before the two engaged in a back and forth Twitter argument,
No. You listen, Olly. When you have millions of followers be very careful what you tweet. There were no shots, in fact nothing happened at all. So you stirred extra needless panic by tweeting false information. https://t.co/6L3xTBlwuA

No you listen Piers.. your comments are unfair mate. It’s Easy to say now it was nothing but in a state of shock and panic I was trying to make people aware of what was happening. Which I was lend to believe by staff and customers that someone was shooting. https://t.co/qFJRfOpqJk

Morgan attempted a witty retort which landed quite flatly on the social media platform, totalling just over 600 favourites against Blunt’s 80,000.
From the man who really is a James Blunt. LOL. https://t.co/f8ZRNOw7QX

However, fans of Blunt took to the singer’s defence comparing the singer as “ex-military, self effacing, good bloke” to “national embarrassment” Piers Morgan.
Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran has revealed that he was recently given the ultimate responsibility by James Blunt with Sheeran becoming the godfather of Blunt’s baby boy.
