“The Kardashians need to put their bodies away – it’s embarrassing”
e had always been a fan H of Kim Kardashian until he suddenly slammed her risqué selfies and said the Paris heist – where she was held at gunpoint in 2016 – may have been “the best thing that happened to her”.
And after Kim revealed in a post last week that he was on her list of “haters” – alongside Taylor Swift and Blac Chyna – whom she was playfully sending her new perfume range to, the friendship’s clearly null and void.
And Piers Morgan, 52, proved the feeling was mutual as he revealed to Closer his thoughts on her latest semi-naked snaps.
“I think it’s pathetic,” he smiles, mischievously. “If I was in a room with Kim now, I’d say, ‘Put it all away! You’re a mum to three kids – it’s embarrassing.’ Imagine being a mum and thinking, ‘Ooh I must show my breasts and flash my bottom on social media’. So embarrassing – have some social decorum!”
The Good Morning Britain presenter – known for his unapologetic opinions – is no
“I’m not into yoga or mindfulness – us Brits are lazy enough as it is!” jokes Piers. “But I have just got into spinning. I bought this American bike, which has a computer in it that you connect to a studio in New York, with all these great trainers, so it’s like you’re in the class with them! It’s brilliant. My wife is really into clean-eating [only having organic, unprocessed food], so she tries to get me into it all. But often the lure of a Friday tandoori takeaway is too much.

Piers has had a prolific career. At 28, he became the youngest ever editor of The News Of The World in 1994. Two years later he was named editor of the Daily Mirror until being sacked in 2004 after publishing faked Iraqi prisoner “torture” pics, but admits he was saved two years later when Simon Cowell gave him a judging role on America’s Got Talent. Throughout his career he’s interviewed some of the biggest stars in the world – including
The star says wife Celia keeps him in shape
With his three sons, Spencer, Albert and Stanley The presenter interviewed Caitlyn on his show stranger to a celeb feud and has also called out the likes of Emily Ratajkowski, Susan Sarandon and most recently Madonna for exposing too much of their bodies.
He says, “When these women say they are proud of their bodies so they show off their behinds, I think it’s rubbish. I’m proud of my body, but I don’t display it all over social media! It’s bulls**t. It’s setting feminism back years – feminism is about gender equality and women’s rights and there is nothing empowering about flashing your boobs. They’re hijacking the feminist movement and wrecking it for everyone.
“Emmeline Pankhurst and the Suffragettes did not risk their lives so that Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski could get their t**s out.”
While the dad – who has Spencer, 24, Stanley, 20, and Albert, 17, from a previous marriage, and Elise, six, with his journalist wife Celia Walden – is open about his disdain for flesh-flashing, it seems he’s recently become just as critical of his own body. Last December, he struck up a bet with Lord Alan Sugar over who could lose the most weight. He thinks Kim should “put them away”
