Twitter wars: Ariana Grande and her mom Joan blast Piers Morgan over his comments on Little Mix and its singer Jesy Nelson
The feud began when Morgan accused Little Mix of using nudity to sell their albums, he also dragged Ariana Grande into the mess by calling her out for doing the same.
Piers Morgan's feud with 'Little Mix' has now caught the attention of Ariana Grande and her mother Joan Grande. Both of them have harshly criticized Morgan's insensitive and mean comments towards the girl band's new album. Morgan posted a tweet accusing the band of copying their promotional art from the 'Dixie Chicks', he then went on to criticize Jesy Nelson, a member of the band, for the picture she uploaded in just her underwear. His tweets read, “Hey @LittleMix – when are you going to admit you stole this idea from @dixiechicks?,” after which he commented on Jesy saying, “Sultry? She looks ridiculous. Ask her to put some clothes on (if she has any…) & apologise for calling me a tw*t.” Nelson, earlier in the week, called Morgan a t**t because he accused the band of using sex and nudity to sell their albums.

Joan wasn't having any of Piers' rude comments and defended Little Mix, she took to Twitter to call him out on his behavior. “Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan ? Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it! You came for @TheEllenShow yesterday which was disgraceful, she is an angel. @LittleMixtoday, did you ever hear of paying homage? And..well never mind.” Joan refers to Ellen because Morgan had previously called out the double standards in Hollywood in response to a video montage of male celebrity bodies posted by DeGeneres in honor of International Men’s Day. In the tweet, Morgan calls DeGeneres’ video “the hypocrisy of modern feminism laid bare," reports Variety.

Piers, of course, didn't take her comments lying down. He sent in a terse retort, saying, "Hi Joan, my mother taught me to speak my mind & never be afraid to express honestly held opinion. Ellen's a hypocrite - and as for Little Mix, I'd just prefer they use their talent to sell records rather than their nudity. As your own daughter does."
Ellen is an incredible & kind human being.. I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because i choose to. women can be sexual AND talented. naked and dignified. it’s OUR choice. 🖤 & we will keep fighting til people understand. i say this w all due respect but thank u, next. https://t.co/wSknRSlJN8— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 21, 2018
Morgan's direct attack on Ariana prompted her to post a tweet defending her right as a woman to use her sexuality the way she sees appropriate. Grande then ended the conversation by calling out Morgan’s double standards by sharing his tweet of a semi-nude photo of himself in front of a fireplace. “When u do it it’s ok tho right?,” she wrote.
