Former CNN host Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan famously known as Piers Morgan recently took to Twitter to share a photo of another man named Piers Morgan.
"This is the luckiest man in Britain," Morgan captioned a photo he tweeted on July 20, Sunday. He tweeted the same photo again with the caption, "His name is also Piers Morgan...."
An hour later, Morgan tweeted another photo of him, the other Piers Morgan, and a man between them.
"Sir Ian's idea of Heaven...flanked by not one but two Piers Morgans," he captioned the photo.
The 49-year-old British journalist and former TV host and talent competition judge did not add details about the identity of his namesake.
Prior to this, Morgan also took to Twitter to express his opinions on the recent news about the crashing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in Ukraine.
"Another Malaysia Airlines plane crashed????" he initially tweeted upon learning the news.
While CNN hosts and experts have avoided drawing a connection between the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 tragedy and the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, the former CNN host did not hesitate to speculate on a connection, according to Mediaite.
"BREAKING NEWS: 295 passengers feared dead after Malaysia Airlines plane went down in Ukraine. Multiple reports it was shot down. Surely not?" Morgan wrote.
"If someone really has shot down a passenger plane in Ukraine, consequences will be huge. Major story developing," he added.
"And if this Malaysia Airlines was shot down, chances of the same having happened to previous one dramatically increased?" he asked. "Given nobody has a clue what happened to first missing Malaysia Airlines plane, not sure how any theory can be ruled in or out?"
Morgan also pointed out it was "horrendous for the people of Malaysia, having to go through this all over again."
Among the 298 victims of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crash, 43 were Malaysians, 15 of which were flight crew members, CBS News reported.
Other victims included 193 Dutch victims, 27 Australians, 12 Indonesians, 10 Britons, four fron Belgium, four from Germany, three from the Philippines, one from Canada and one from New Zealand, New York Times has learned.
