British broadcaster and journalist, Piers Morgan has been called out over remarks he’s made about Madonna ahead of her 40th-anniversary tour, with his comments labelled ‘misogynistic’ and ‘se*ist’.
On Wednesday’s episode of the broadcaster’s TalkTV show, Piers Morgan took several moments to express his aversion to the Vogue singer, and the way in which she announced her upcoming worldwide tour.
The 64-year-old revealed the news in a video featuring A-list stars including Jack Black and Amy Schumer, in which the group played a NSFW game of truth or dare.
Ahead of the latest instalment of Piers Morgan Uncensored, the 57-year-old tweeted: ‘I think Madonna’s become the biggest cringe-making fiasco in world entertainment.’
“I think she’s become the most grotesque, train wreck embarrassment in the history of world entertainment!”

Then on the programme, he expressed his view that Madonna was a ‘hot mess’ who ‘should be put out to pasture’, while lambasting her for doing ‘the whole trying to be an s*x kitten thing when you’re in your 60s’.
Piers Morgan brought up a series of X-rated pictures the musician previously shared on social media, including one that showed her lying underneath a bed with her bare backside on display.
The host quipped that he would describe Madonna as hitting ‘rock bottom’ in a headline, before locking horns with former X Factor judge Louis Walsh over her upcoming tour.
‘She’s iconic, she’s one of the biggest pop stars ever, you just don’t like her,’ said Louis, 70.
Meanwhile, Piers suggested that she should do the shows while sitting in a rocking chair, much to Louis’ shock.
On Twitter, one person called for the broadcaster to ‘apologise for your misogynistic remarks about Madonna tonight calling her a “sweaty mess”‘.
Below are some Twitter reactions from fans culled by infoexpert24:
So @piersmorgan a fat bloated late middle aged BOF and skill, talentless and probably tone deaf has the audacity to suggest that @Madonna is past it. Think you need go sit in a dark room and take stock of what success is, phone hacking ain’t one. He is unknown in most countries

Madonna is an Icon without hesitation, a musical Chameleon who can re- invent themselves time after time , unlike the formulaic artists of today’s music scene , like Elvis ,many imitators but there is only one Madonna

So @piersmorgan you have vented your fury at Madonna because she’s decided to tour at the age of 64 saying she’s to old and haggard do you have the same opinion on Elton John or is it because she’s a woman

piers morgan making gross ageist remarks about madonna is nothing new, considering that he’s been making gross ageist remarks about her since she was in her early 30s.

Madonna doesn’t see you Piers. You’re so far below her that you’re a microscopic bacteria in her lens. Can’t focus on Meghan any more so you need another successful woman beginning with M to trash? You’re pathetic.

Another lame attack on a highly successful female artist by a not so successful hack desperate for views and devoid of any ideas. They will be playing Madonna and talking about her influence long after you have shuffled off.
