Piers Morgan Comes For Little Mix Again, Calls Jesy Nelson ‘Stupid’ for New Tattoo
Apparently Piers Morgan hasn't learned his lesson abut messing with the Mixers.
The British television host and media pundit (and some might argue part-time troll) continued his feud with chart-topping UK girl group Little Mix on his show Good Morning Britain on Wednesday morning. His issue this time? Little Mix member Jesy Nelson's new tattoo of a small pistol on the side of her ribcage.
"So many people are getting shot to pieces and of course, the best thing for a young woman to do as a role model to millions of impressionable young girls is to tattoo a gun," Morgan said on air. The host also went in on the singer on his Twitter, writing, "what a dangerously deluded & dumb thing to do."
Piers' co-host Susanna Reid remained mostly silent during Morgan's rant, but did manage to get one comment in. "It's so she can continue shooting insults at you," Reid said, referring to Jesy calling Morgan a "silly tw-t" on BBC radio a few weeks ago, after he accused the women of using sex to sell music after they released a tasteful, nude (but covered) photoshoot.
This morning's comments are the latest since that back-and-forth in November, in which Ariana Grande (and her mom Joan) also got involved, firing back at Piers and showing support for Little Mix.
"Keep fighting the fight divas @LittleMix your sisters have your back," Ariana tweeted, before telling Morgan she looks 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."
No response from Little Mix or Jesy as of the writing of this article. Maybe they'll just ignore Piers in hopes he leaves them alone once and for all.
