Piers Morgan and Amber Rose in Twitter spat after model shares naked image
Piers Morgan and Amber Rose are ‘debating’ feminism over Twitter.
Piers Morgan and Amber Rose have become embroiled in a spat on Twitter after the US model shared a racy image of herself naked from the waist down.
Amber, 33, posted a picture on social media of herself wearing only a bikini top and an open coat and showing her pubic hair, to urge women to embrace a more natural look.
Imma post this one more time for the haters pic.twitter.com/9U2nE8z4Yh— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) June 11, 2017
Journalist Piers urged her to “put it away, luv” after seeing the image, insisting Amber’s claim to be baring her body in the name of feminism was “ridiculous”.
His comment sparked a war of words between the pair.
It's not 'misogyny' to think that posting nude photos in the supposed name of feminist empowerment is pathetic attention-seeking bulls**t. https://t.co/39rIjaaUXu— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) June 11, 2017
Nude? Where? My breast nor my vagina was showing and my legs were closed https://t.co/ZD0dZzwAWc— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) June 11, 2017
I can handle your naked body, Amber - relax.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) June 11, 2017
I just can't handle your ridiculous claim to be stripping off in the name of feminism. https://t.co/i0bAqNKbB1
Lol ur an idiot ur first tweet to me was... "Put it away luv thanks" Lol "it"???? https://t.co/D88X37OvFj— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) June 11, 2017
The model initially shared her picture to promote her Slut Walk, an annual protest to raise awareness about sexual injustice and gender equality, but it was removed by Instagram.
She then posted a video of herself rolling her eyes with the caption: “When IG deletes ur fire ass feminist post but you really don’t give a fuck because everyone picked it up already#amberroseslutwalk #bringbackthebush.”
During her row with Piers, Amber posted a photograph of Maroon 5′s Adam Levine posing nude with a woman’s hand over his private parts and asked the TV star whether that was also “attention seeking”.
When Pier’s said Adam’s picture was to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer, Amber said: “Smh I raise awareness for my foundation as well Piers.
“That’s like saying breast cancer awareness is cool but what about HIV and AIDS.”
Lol @piersmorgan my "naked" body offended you for my nonprofit SLUTWALK but a woman grabbing Adam Levine's dick and balls was cool?— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) June 11, 2017
Piers later posted an old image of himself nude, with just a skimpy piece of material protecting his modesty, in an ad for Burger King’s Flame cologne.
When Amber re-posted the image of herself on Twitter, Piers sniped: “THIS is what Emmeline Pankhurst fought so hard for? Jeez.”
