Piers Morgan Gets Hammered for Anti-Women's March Tweets

by at .

Piers Morgan is standing behind his very public disdain for the Women's March.

On Saturday, across the globe, millions of women (and many men) protested the Presidency of Donald Trump, wearing pink cat (that is, pussy) hats, holding up signs and making their voices known.

Over three-quarters of a million people turned out in Los Angeles. Over a half million in Washington D.C. The overall numbers were staggering.

But Morgan was unimpressed.

“Imagine if there were a load of men-only marches today? The feminists would go crackers,” the talk show host wrote yesterday morning, later adding:

"I'm planning a ‘Men’s March’ to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists. Who’s with me?"

That would be the irony, of course. That would be the best thing that could happen.

Morgan absolutely should organize a Men's March to combat the creeping global emasculation of his gender by rabid feminists.

And then we can sit back and see if it attracts the same number of people as a march aimed at promoting freedom of choice... equal pay for both genders... and reproductive rights.

In response to a great deal of backlash online, Morgan said it was all for protesting and all for feminists.

But he's also for his own freedom of speech to criticism the protests and he's strongly against "rabid feminists," adding in a series of Tweets:

There are far better ways to challenge Trump than marching around in pink pussy hats.

I fully support their right to protest, just as freedom of speech gives me the right to criticise the purpose of their protest.

53% of American white women voted Trump. I bet half these 'pussy' protestors didn't vote at all.

Let’s be honest, ladies.. today’s Women’s March is just an anti-democratic protest at Trump winning the presidency.

One of the main reasons Hillary lost was that she & her supporters exuded air of entitlement to her becoming being 1st female president.

Morgan also took aim at Ashley Judd's popular speech (above), specifically how she said Trump has "wet dreams" about his daughter, Ivanka.

And Morgan REALLY went off on Madonna, who did say in her speech (below) that she had thought about blowing up the White House.

"Publicly threatening to bomb the White House is a serious criminal offence. @Madonna should be arrested," Morgan wrote, later using this as an example of how the March was hypocritical across the board:

"Bomb threats, Hitler & incest taunts, foul-mouthed rants...and this was a march to 'End the hate'? Shameful hypocrisy."

As you might expect, Morgan heard it from his fair share of critics on Twitter in reply to these remarks.

Some kept it simple ("Being threatened by strong women is not a good look for you."), while others may have gone a tad overboard, such as this Tweet:

"The next time Piers Morgan is trending I hope its because he's been crippled and impoverished. He should have to die slowly like that."

But Morgan - who has slammed Jennifer Aniston for others judging her and spoken out passionately in favor of gun control over the years - was unfazed by the negative feedback.

Sounding a lot like Donald Trump, in fact, he pointed to his growing number of Twitter followers as proof of... well... something.

"UPDATE: I've attracted 10,000 new followers in 24hrs. Thanks, ladies!" Morgan wrote this morning.

Where do you stand on Morgan's controversial takes?

He said he is "amused by all the fulminating outrage at my suggestion of a Men’s March, especially from women. Kinda proves my point…

"Just need @KimKardashian & @emrata to post bird-flipping topless selfies to support #WomensMarch for the farce to be complete."

Morgan's Twitter follower count may be on the rise, but is his popularity?

Does that even matter in a age where the President himself brags about Twitter followers and simply insults the heck out of anyone who doesn't like him?

Sound off below. Then go drink a lot of alcohol.
