The feud started after Morgan criticized the promotional art for Little Mix’s upcoming album, “LM5,” calling the image a copy of a previous photo shoot done by the Dixie Chicks.
Soon after, Morgan targeted the band again, this time blasting member Jesy Nelson for posting a picture of herself in just her underwear.
In response to the tweet, Joan Grande came to Little Mix’s defense before criticizing Morgan for his previous remarks about talk show host Ellen DeGeneres : “Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan ?
Morgan had previously called out double standards in Hollywood in response to a video montage of male celebrity bodies posted by DeGeneres in honor of International Men’s Day.
Morgan’s tweet prompted a series of posts from Ariana Grande herself, during which the pop star praised DeGeneres before defending the use of her own sexuality and signing off with the title of her latest single, “thank u, next.”
Grande ended the conversation by calling out Morgan’s double standards by sharing his tweet of a semi-nude photo of himself in front of a fireplace.
