After Piers Morgan glazed himself in full-on garbage water trolldom, by tweeting his "doubt" in both Lady Gaga and Madonna's revelations of past sexual assault--as well as Gaga's admittance to struggling with PTSD--Gaga decided to bite back, in a classy, queenly way.
First, Gaga tweeted her support for Madge--her clandestine "nemesis"--and her already-iconic speech at the Billboard Music Awards this past weekend.
@Madonna your speech at the Billboard Music Awards was inspiring. You're so brave & strong. Thanks for being that for us girls we need that. — xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) December 12, 2016
She then tweeted at Piers directly, challenging his skepticism over why Gaga and Madonna "waited so long" to report their assaults.
@piersmorgan I've work w/ our VP Joe Biden on helping educate people about why women don't report, would love to share it w/ you some time. — xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) December 13, 2016
And his "soldier defense" regarding PTSD:
@piersmorgan would also love to talk with you about PTSD, that it's not just a "military" disorder. There is a mental health youth epidemic. — xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) December 13, 2016
She offered her prayers:
@piersmorgan if anyone in your family suffers from it, I pray they have more good days than bad. It has affected me & my whole family.❤️✌️ — xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) December 13, 2016
The singer then agreed to talk with Piers--one on one--about PTSD and sexual violence against women:
@piersmorgan Let's do that & yes Mr. Morgan, I can handle u. Suprised you would question that. Was that the 1st question of our interview? — xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) December 13, 2016
And when he, again, disrespected her, she (politely) hit back.
@piersmorgan if you continue to shame me in the process of kindly agreeing to interview w/ u I'll happily do the interview with someone else — xoxo, Joanne (@ladygaga) December 13, 2016
While Gaga hardly has to validate herself against Piers fucking Morgan, there's no one else (well, other than Madonna, actually) I'd rather watch wipe the floor with his ignorant ass.
