Matthew Steeples argues that the acid tongued Aussie Amanda Platell should put a sock in it and apologise for her disgraceful attack on the lovely lady that is Amanda Holden
Acid tongued Aussie harpy Amanda Platell once described Twitter trolls as “evil” in spite of herself repeatedly referencing her thankfully now croaked paedophile chum Rolf Harris as a “dear friend” and a “kind and generous man.”
Beyond evil Harris’s victims – amongst them children as young as just 7-years-old at the time he raped and abused them – most certainly would not agree with that, but as is typical for pugnacious Platell, this warbling wack job had to weigh in on the matter of the sordid Phillip Schofield scandal; a scandal that involves a “boy” the now disgraced 63-year-old telly box twerp met when he was somewhere in the range of just 10 to 15 years old.
In launching a completely uncalled for attack on the lovely lady that is Amanda Holden, always angry Platell – who nastily declared that “the real gay marriage bigots are its intolerant supporters” in the Daily Mail in March 2014 and blubbed that creepy Christian crooner Sir Cliff Richard didn’t “deserve [a] lurid trial by television” in August that year – has today shown herself again as totally out of touch. In her thankfully only once weekly column, this tyrannical tripe teller raged:
“Only someone with a very cold heart could have made such fun of Holly Willoughby when she appeared on the ITV sofa on Monday.”
“Solo, without Phillip Schofield, her This Morning co-host since 2009, Holly began by asking: ‘Firstly, are you OK?’ Clearly she wasn’t, as her normally smiling face was frozen with fear. After the departure of her friend and colleague Schofield, she had been left to carry the can.”
“Then up popped Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, also a famous fabulously rich TV presenter, brutally mocking her.”
“Talk about sisterly compassion. Holden took to Instagram, put on a white outfit mimicking Holly’s frock on the show and, in an awful parody, smirkingly asked: ‘Firstly, are you OK?’ and then repeated the phrase on her radio show Heart FM.”
“Which just leaves you thinking, why would you want to kick a good woman when she’s down?”
“Holden’s behaviour was disgraceful. She’s a professional hard-working mum just like Holly. Surely there might have been a scintilla of feeling in her heart. Doesn’t appear so.”
“Your actions and words on social media tell a different truth — and it’s about someone who’s frankly quite nasty.”
“She deserved sympathy, not humiliation by Holden. It’s no coincidence Amanda resembles actress Rachel McAdams… who played gleefully vicious Regina in hit movie Mean Girls.”
Poisonous pen Platell – whose many other ‘historic offences’ include having claimed that the grubby groper and now ex-MP Charlie Elphicke was being subjected to “blatant injustice” after his “step too far” conviction in September 2020 for sexual offences – is the only one who has repeatedly acted disgracefully. It is time for Lord Rothermere to act; it is time for Lord Rothermere and DMGT to sack the vilest villain. That villain? Amanda Platell.
