The reality star and the Good Morning Britain host had a clash of opinions
AMBER Rose branded Piers Morgan a ‘misogynistic a**hole’ and ‘idiot’ after he criticised her for posting a semi-naked picture on Instagram.
The pair traded taunts on Twitter when Piers told the model to “Put it Away luv. Thanks.”
The 33-year-old model sparked controversy after posting the explicit Instagram picture of herself wearing no knickers.
Piers objected, writing: “It’s not ‘misogyny’ to think that posting nude photos in the supposed name of feminist empowerment is pathetic attention-seeking bulls**t.”
Maintaining she wasn’t ‘nude’ as her breasts were covered and legs were closed, Amber called the GMB host “an idiot.”
Piers insisted: “I can handle your naked body, Amber – relax.
“I just can’t handle your ridiculous claim to be stripping off in the name of feminism.”
The explicit picture – which was posted to promote Amber’s SlutWalk campaign – was removed by Instagram within two hours.
The campaign is a movement the star started in 2015 to honour all women who feel judged and demeaned for their sexual behaviour.
To illustrate her point, Amber posted a 2011 image of Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine posing naked with a woman’s hands covering his genitals – and asked Piers if the photo was “attention seeking”.
As the conversation rumbled on, Piers expressed disdain as he typed: “THIS is what Emmeline Pankhurst fought so hard for? Jeez.”
But Amber responded sarcastically: “I’m sorry I forgot only men can be sexually confident”.
He also reproduced a photo of himself posing naked (but for a well-placed blanket) in an advertisement for Burger King.
“I am re-posting this in the name of male empowerment. cc @DaRealAmberRose,” Piers wrote.
“So you got naked for a Burger King check and ur giving me a hard time? Foh ,” Amber replied.
And seemingly ending the argument, Piers wrote: “It’s not about sexual confidence. It’s about you posting nude photos claiming it promotes feminism, which is utter nonsense.”
