"James Bond" has a new archenemy. His name: Morgan. Piers Morgan.
The British journalist, who took over Larry King's spot on CNN from 2011-2014 with his own live talk show and now co-hosts Good Morning Britain, has been known to be unapologetically brash about topics that many people feel did not require his commentary in the first place.
Everyone may be a critic, but Morgan's arrogant, dismissive tone when tackling topics that he, arguably, has no real business sticking his nose into has put him in hot water numerous times. This week, his latest dive was a shot at actor Daniel Craig, AKA 007 himself, for a condemning public sight...
That's it? Craig carrying his infant daughter in a papoose constitutes parent shaming? To quote Morgan, "How utterly pathetic."
In typical fashion, many people felt compelled to combat this tweet in support of men who can carry their child however they see as fitting. Also, in typical fashion, Morgan fought back.
Well, I suppose you can consider yourself lucky that the "emasculated" Craig is retiring from the 007 role soon so your "manly" self can take over, huh?
Just when it was assumed that "Papoose-gate" would burn out just as fast as it ignited, fathers (common citizens and celebrities alike) stood their ground.
But, the most devastating and direct blow back at Morgan for his opinion came courtesy of comedian Harry Hill, who was a guest on Good Morning Britain Wednesday, October 17.
Despite the incessant Twitter backlash and a pie pressed firmly into his face, Morgan, as usual, just does not care. He has kept his opinion strong without letting any papoose supporters force him to apologize or give in to their parenting philosophies. As far as we can tell, he won this war, but was it even a war worth winning?
Morgan can carry his children however he would like, but to publicly shame a father for wearing a papoose to hold his infant daughter and following that by firmly standing his ground against these "instruments of emasculation" is a little ridiculous. It could be his lowest and most ludicrous condemnation yet for choosing such a trivial topic to openly and adamantly lambast.
If Morgan wants to continue criticizing things that have absolutely no crucial effect on himself or rest of the world, maybe he should go back to judging America's Got Talent.
What do you think? Do Morgan's comments have you shaken and stirred in your papoose, or has he inspired you to hang yours up for good? Let us know in the comments below!
