Controversial British TV personality Piers Morgan, who recently mocked Sam Smith for being non-binary, is now feuding with actor Jameela Jamil on Twitter.

What happened?

In a series of Tweets ranging from 19 March through 22 March, Morgan accused Jamil of misgendering him, being racist, and more.

On 19 March, Jamil Tweeted about Morgan’s mocking of Sam Smith.

‘LOL. Of course England’s biggest shit stain has something mean to say about it,’ The Good Place actor wrote. ‘He thinks men who carry babies in a comfortable papoose where they can feel your body heat and pulse, aren’t ”manly.” This clown spews constant toxic ideas of “masculinity.”’

The Twitter feud

‘Appalling that you just assume I am identifying as male tonight,’ Morgan responded.

‘You’re right, it is extraordinary I identify you as any kind of human being at all you giant pile of wank,’ Jamil shot back.

‘I’d rather be wank than woke, luv,’ Morgan replied.

‘Mission accomplished, hun,’ Jamil answered.

But Morgan didn’t take too kindly to being called ‘hun.’

‘Don’t call me “hun,”’ he stated. ‘I identify as male, but “hun” normally applies to a female (“honey”) which means you are mockingly mis-gendering [sic] me & that’s now apparently a criminal offence in Britain. Unless you meant “hun” as a derogatory term for Germans in which case you’re a racist.’

Jamil’s final Tweet on this matter joked about Morgan’s logic in thinking ‘hun’ and ‘honey’ could only apply to women.

‘How do we send this thing back in a time machine to the era in which it belongs…?’ she queried.

Anything else?

This is not the first time Piers Morgan has made insensitive comments about transgender and non-binary people. Earlier this month, he attacked a Florida parent’s decision to raise their child gender-neutral. He has also previously clashed with trans model Munroe Bergdorf, Caitlyn Jenner, and others.
