British commentator Piers Morgan blasted acquitted murder suspect Amanda Knox after she took to Twitter to compare her time in an Italian prison to the presidential election.

Knox tweeted: “Whatever happens, the next four years can't be as bad as that four-year study abroad I did in Italy, right?”

In 2007, Knox was convicted of killing her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, during the time they were exchange students in Italy. She was ultimately exonerated by an Italian appeals court in 2015 and returned to the U.S.

Knox’s tweet has almost 17,000 quote tweets and 20,000 likes.

Morgan replied. And his response wasn't the first time he has slammed Knox.

Others agreed that Knox's tweet was out of line and self-serving. Allure's editor in chief also responded.

Others thought her comment was funny and harmless.

After her acquittal in 2017, Knox made her Instagram account public again.

In 2020, she is still with boyfriend Christopher Robin and is a co-host on the LABYRINTHS podcast.

Netflix put out a documentary about her life titled “Amanda Knox,” and she wrote a book, “Waiting to be Heard,” which explains her experience in her own words.
