He later launches a scathing attack on Ewan McGregor.
Piers Morgan has incurred the ridicule of the masses after a recent comment on Twitter where he branded Women's March demonstrators as 'rabid feminists'. He has so far received criticism from a number of his peers, including 'Good Morning Britain' co-host Susanna Reid.
Piers Morgan gets roasted on Twitter after 'Women's March' attack
Perhaps he was intending to incite angry messages from women everywhere, but instead he got the disapproval of his colleague, the derision of a popular British politician and a total roasting from an American comedian. Plus, he has just lost himself an interview with the star of 'T2 Trainspotting' Ewan McGregor.
'I'm planning a 'Men's March' to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists. Who's with me?' He garbled via Twitter. His 'Good Morning Britain' co-host Susanna Reid was quick to respond - and not in his defence. 'You know you sit next to a feminist every morning, right?' She replied.
This exchange could spell bad news for the British presenter's current career, especially since it has already caused one of their guests to pull out of an appearance on his show. 'Was going on Good Morning Britain, didn't realise Piers Morgan was host. Won't go on with him after his comments about #WomensMarch', Ewan McGregor stated on Twitter.

Even the former Leader of the Labour Party was baffled by the blatantly sexist and irresponsible notion. 'Is this a parody account?' He asked.
But it was American comedian Patton Oswalt who really took his feelings on Piers Morgan to the next level. He went on to post a series of joke posts about attending a Men's March, including: 'Hey Piers Morgan, I'm at the #MensMarch. Am I at the right Arby's? No one's here. I'm in a "Bro-varies Not Ovaries" half-tee.'
Piers Morgan later tried to undo the damage by pretending it was all just a joke: 'People actually thought I was genuinely planning a Men's anti-emasculation March. This is how dumb social media has become.' But Patton Oswalt wasn't having any of it. 'Shut up you dumb British bullfart. No one thought you were gonna do s**t about f**k. We just like making fun of you. Pip pip', he wrote in response. That's a mic drop moment if ever we saw one.
Unfortunately, it hasn't ended there. Since the offending Twitter posts, Morgan has accused Ewan McGregor of being ''very fond' of a convicted child rapist' and suggested that he has made the Scottish filmstar popular, because apparently fame depends on how many followers you have on Twitter.
