Piers Morgan has hit out at Jameela Jamil amid a furious debate about Sam Smith’s gender fluidity.
Sharing a link to an article about the 53-year-old TV host’s on air comments, Jameela, 33, made her thoughts on the matter very clear.
Clash: Piers Morgan has hit out at Jameela Jamil amid a furious debate about Sam Smith’s gender fluidity
Sam had made the admission during Jameela’s new I Weigh Interview series, discussing what a ‘non-binary’ and ‘genderqueer’ identity meant to him.
The Good Place actress tweeted: ‘LOL. Of course England’s biggest s**t stain has something mean to say about it.
‘He thinks men who carry babies in a comfortable papoose where they can feel your body heat and pulse, aren’t ”manly”. This clown spews constant toxic ideas of “masculinity”.’
Piers fired back: ‘Appalling that you just assume I am identifying as male tonight.’
Furious: Jameela branded Piers ‘Britain’s biggest s**t stain’ after Piers made light of Sam Smith’s recent revelation he is non-binary, meaning he identifies with neither male or female gender
‘You’re right, it is extraordinary I identify you as any kind of human being at all you giant pile of w**k’, Jameela hit back.
Piers retorted, ‘I’d rather be w**k than woke, luv’, prompting Jameela to reply with, ‘Mission accomplished hun’.
The presenter then told her: ‘Don’t call me ‘hun’.
‘I identify as male, but ‘hun’ normally applies to a female (‘honey’) which means you are mockingly mis-gendering me & that’s now apparently a criminal offence in Britain.
Row: Sharing a link to an article about the 53-year-old TV host’s on air comments, Jameela made her thoughts on the matter clear, but Piers had plenty to say back
‘Unless you meant ‘hun’ as a derogatory term for Germans in which case you’re a racist.’
Jameela appears to have left the feud lie there, but Piers couldn’t resist another retort.
Replying to a tweet supporting Jameela, he wrote, ‘The only vile thing around here is your horrible click-baiting & Ms Jamil’s disgusting foul-mouthed abuse,’ he wrote.
The origin of the feud stems from Piers’ comments on Tuesday’s edition of GMB.
Debate: Last week, Sam bravely admitted, ‘You are just you. You are your own special creation. That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between – somewhat on the spectrum’
He told viewers: ‘Sam Smith has announced he’s gender fluid – he can’t work out if he’s male or female.
‘I’m now identifying as Sam Smith so I can get his royalties. It works both ways.’
Piers’ co-host Susanna Reid asked him: ‘Why do you care?’
Branding it a ‘generational thing’, Piers elaborated: ‘He has millions of fans. What are they supposed to think?
‘I think there are so many ramifications around self-identity which actually are a real concern and they haven’t really thought it through.’
Controversy: The origin of the feud stems from Piers’ comments on Tuesday’s edition of GMB, when he joked, ‘Sam Smith has announced he’s gender fluid.. I’m now identifying as Sam Smith (pictured) so I can get his royalties. It works both ways’
The four-time Grammy winner admitted: ‘You do not identify in a gender. You are just you. You are your own special creation. That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between – somewhat on the spectrum.’
Giving further context, Sam responded: ‘I’ve always had a bit of a war in my body and my mind… I do think like a woman in my head at times.
‘I’ve sometimes sat there and questioned, do I want a sex change? It’s something I still think about, but I don’t think it is,’ he explained.
Sam also revealed he has always been ‘very free’ when it comes to thinking about his sexuality.
‘I’ve tried to change that into my thoughts on gender… when I move, when I have sex with men, it’s very feminine. I’m feminine in many ways – and I’ve resented that,’ he stated.
