Anyone who’s active on social media would tell you that – Piers Morgan is quite a loudmouth.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge has been getting himself into all sorts of controversies due to his no-hold-barred “opinions” on Twitter and beefs with basically everyone. This time he chose to clash with none other than, Ellen DeGeneres.
The “Good Morning Britain” host threw shade at DeGeneres for running images of shirtless men on her show during the occasion of – ‘International Men’s Day’, calling it the ‘hypocrisy of modern feminism.’

Yet I’ve been abused all day for complimenting @hollywills on her legs.
The hypocrisy of modern feminism laid bare..

Only a few days ago, Morgan had also accused Little Mix of ‘stealing’ the idea of covering their nude body parts with various messages written on them – from Dixie Chicks, who had done something similar back in the early 2000’s.
All this, for some reasons, did not go down well with Ariana’s mother – Joan Grande, who lashed out at the journalist, asking him to shut it..
“Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan? Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it! You came for @TheEllenShow yesterday which was disgraceful, she is an angel. @LittleMix today, did you ever hear of paying homage? And..well never mind”.
Obviously, Morgan took no time to respond and went ahead to drag Ariana into the mix, accusing her and Little Mix of ‘selling nudity instead of music’…
“Hi Joan, my mother taught me to speak my mind & never be afraid to express honestly held opinion. Ellen’s a hypocrite – and as for Little Mix, I’d just prefer they use their talent to sell records rather than their nudity. As your own daughter does…!”
This was when Ariana Chimed-in and showed Morgan the door.
“Ellen is an incredible & kind human being,” Ariana tweeted. “I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because i choose to. women can be sexual AND talented. naked and dignified. it’s OUR choice. & we will keep fighting til people understand. i say this w all due respect but thank u, next.”
She further stated:
“Also @piersmorgan, i look forward to the day you realize there are other ways to go about making yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful, successful women for everything they do. i think that’ll be a beautiful thing for you and your career or what’s left of it.”
keep fighting the fight divas @LittleMix 🖤 your sisters have your back
