Famous owner of terrible opinions, unrelenting bodyshamer and unapologetic misogynist Piers Morgan took to social media today to drag... everyone? But don't worry, we don't have to educate him about his archaic ideas: Ariana Grande and her mom Joan have got this one.
Morgan started off by calling Ellen DeGeneres a hypocrite for her #InternationalMensDay montage featuring Idris Elba, Chris Hemsworth and the likes — confused why it's alright for Ellen, a woman, to "drool over famous men's bodies" while he's been "abused" for complimenting an actress' legs.

Next, because he can't stand women having ownership over their bodies and images, he came for Little Mix, accusing the girl group of ripping off the Dixie Chicks' nude Entertainment cover photoshoot for their new album promo which was so similar that it's... almost like they saw it... and were inspired by it? Jesy Nelson fired back at him with a shot of her in her Calvins, which he also took the bait on.
Hey @LittleMix - when are you going to admit you stole this idea from @dixiechicks? https://t.co/dLRX2TMv2k— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1542722187.0
Sultry? She looks ridiculous. Ask her to put some clothes on (if she has any...) & apologise for calling me a tw*t. https://t.co/i63gXpkJaV— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1542726050.0
Which is when Ariana's mom Joan kindly interjected:
Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan ? Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say,… https://t.co/4uHE5RbGbj— Joan Grande (@Joan Grande) 1542820568.0
Morgan clapped back by saying his sexism is okay, because it is his opinion!
Hi Joan, my mother taught me to speak my mind & never be afraid to express honestly held opinion. Ellen's a hypocr… https://t.co/rwpAecIkHZ— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1542821117.0
Ariana joined the fray to back up her mom, shouting out Ellen and Little Mix, and tearing Piers apart point by point:

This is all he had in response:
Is that your screensaver? https://t.co/S0DgkhCQpz— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1542822926.0
Why's it 'misogynistic' to suggest female pop stars with millions of young fans shouldn't use nudity to sell record… https://t.co/Tm33a7zMwC— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1542824588.0
Yes... it is, and no woman should really be having to perform the labor of explaining explain these straightforward ideas in 2018, but Ariana and her mom did it anyway. All we can say is... God is a woman.
