Piers Morgan fumes as Victoria Beckham 'furloughs 25 staff' during pandemic

Piers Morgan vented his rage at Victoria Beckham after she was reportedly forced to furlough staff members at her VB fashion label.

Victoria is said to have furloughed 25 members of staff as the coronavirus pandemic hit her business.

The former Spice Girls star has also chosen not to take a salary as the label makes dramatic changes to survive the crisis, according to The Sun.

The Good Morning Britain host shared a clip on Twitter of the designer during her appearance in the One World: Together At Home concert, where she and husband David Beckham introduced a performance from Elton John.

She said: ‘Our thanks to all of the healthcare workers all around the world who are working so, so hard, leaving their families to go to work to protect us and our children. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.’

He tweeted: ‘Sorry, but this makes me puke. If you care this much about the NHS, @victoriabeckham – then why are you taking taxpayer money the NHS desperately needs – and you DON’T need – to furlough your staff & prop up your failing business?’

‘She has even forgone her own salary in order to lead from the front.’

They went on: ‘Although she is still passionate about fashion, Victoria will really be focusing her efforts on the beauty side now. Overheads for the online business are low, and it’s really beginning to flourish.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Victoria Beckham’s team for comment.
