Ewan McGregor Put Piers Morgan In The Naughty Corner For Being So Attention-Seeking

Piers' comments on the Women's March got him snubbed by Ewan McGregor, and all he wanted was for someone to notice him

Poor Piers Morgan - a British TV host with some rather old fashioned views, in case you didn't know - will do anything to get a Twitter mention these days.

From trying to shame Susan Sarandon for wearing a, quite frankly, bad-ass outfit to pay tribute to her friend David Bowie.

To his rather amusing preoccupation with Emily Ratajkowski.

Someone just needs to give Piers some attention.

So here you go Piers, it's all eyes on you.

On the day of the Women's March, which even Trump understood to be a great act of peaceful protest and democratic freedom:

Piers got a bit bored and decided he would try and argue that reverse sexism is a thing.

After some kindly people, like the boys of Rizzle Kicks, pointed out that there were plently of men at the Women's March, since they would also benefit from issues such as protected reproductive rights and so on.

He responded maturely, thus,

Thanks for clarifying Piersy.

Susanna Reid, his Good Morning Britain co-host, thankfully warned him about her daily presence in his life.

But it seems, he thinks himself a feminist too.

Ewan McGregor decided to put Piers in the naughty corner yesterday morning by refusing to be interviewed by him after these comments.

Piers absolutely loved this, and took the opportunity to tell everyone, after reading the tweet out on air, that actors should only talk about their movies and, 'shouldn't get so worked up about politics because it's not really their game'.

Because actor 'luvvies' (as he constantly calls anyone who has an opinion in his various articles for The Daily Mail), as human people, obviously have no right to discuss politics that affects the society they live in.

He then proved his own feminist credentials by calling Ewan a 'paedophile-lover' because he worked with convicted sex-offender Roman Polanski.

Nothing says classy than a 'I'm more feminist than you' argument, eh Piers.

To further cement his self-proclaimed feminist title, he also went in on Lily Allen, with a photo of her from when she was 22.

He seemed to suggest that in this photo he is being sexually assaulted by Lily Allen.

If Piers had indeed felt violated by Lily he, of course, should have filed a more formal complaint. We can't help but think he doesn't really mean it though.

Fantastic joke about sexual assault Piers, you are the the King of Banter, the Batersaurus Rex, if you will.

He then went on to prove his Feminist status by responding to her tweet, by calling her 'luv' and saying he was watching the 'footie'.

Aaaah, this must be his much-treasured 'masculinity' he talked about earlier.

Once again, the people of Twitter were there to give Piers some much-needed attention, and a little talking down after another one of his 'I'll-say-anything-to-be-controversial' rants.

So there you go, Piers, enough attention to keep you schtum for a bit?

Probably not.
