Piers Morgan Demands Apology From Little Mix's Jesy Nelson After 'T**t' Insult
| Last updated
Some people would argue that Piers Morgan has offended a lot of people in his time. For instance, he mocked Daniel Craig, along with pretty much every man that carries their child using a papoose.
Then he called the contestants of Love Island the 'most stupid people in the world' despite there being an A&E doctor, a nuclear systems engineer and a humanitarian bomb disposal expert standing as contestants on the reality show.
Now, probably in a bid to irritate as many people as possible (shock), he's offended Little Mix after he accused the band of 'using their nudity' to sell their latest album - and now he wants them to apologise for hitting back at his comments.
Responding to his negative comments live on BBC Radio 1, Jesy Nelson called Piers a 'silly twat' and Leigh-Anne Pinnock added that she didn't even want to 'say his name'.
Unsurprisingly, Radio 1 presenter Nick Grimshaw was forced to apologise for Jesy's outburst which saw her swearing live on radio in the middle of the day. He said to the singer: "Language! You can't swear, Jesy!"
The presenter then told listeners: "Apologies for the offensive language... on the BBC."
Thankfully, Leigh-Anne stepped in to correct her, adding: "The word she was looking for was 'idiot'."
If you weren't already aware, the girl band have released a video for their new single 'Strip' which sees them stripped (kinda self explanatory) naked, with insults they have received over the years daubed on their skin.
Taking to Twitter, the girls said that the video is trying to 'empower women to be who they are', gathering a plethora of inspirational women to join in with them.
But following the radio outburst Piers demanded that he receive a 'public apology' before inviting them on to Good Morning Britain to engage in a debate - he promised to sit with the word 'twat' written on his forehead. Which is something I know a lot of us would simply love to see.
Piers said: "Ahh, Jesy, you let yourself down, love, didn't you? Because when you're doing a campaign against using rude words it's probably better not to use the rude words on the radio about me."
After co-host Susanna Reid tried to explain what Jesy said (without saying the word), Piers bluntly added: "Well, she called me a 'twat', let's be perfectly clear. I apologise to anyone who is offended by the language Little Mix used about me because their campaign is to stop people using rude words, that's what she called me on national radio.
"So, Little Mix, I think you need to make a public apology during your campaign to root out bad language from public discourse to me."
Don't think you're getting an apology Piers, pal.
