The entire internet is shutting Piers Morgan down for his latest ridiculous comments

Piers Morgan is at it again. 

Piers Morgan just can’t help himself, can he? If he’s not making laughable sexist comments or encouraging body-shaming remarks, the seasoned misogynist can be found taking aim at some unsuspecting person on Twitter.

And the latest victim of his trolling? Actor Daniel Craig.

Taking to Twitter, The Good Morning Britain TV presenter shared a photo of Craig – who welcomed his first child with actress Rachel Weiz a few weeks ago – carrying his daughter Ella in a papoose (also known as a baby carrier).

“Oh 007.. not you as well?!!! #papoose #emasculatedBond,” Morgan wrote. 

Morgan – who is a father of four – felt the need to ridicule Craig for carrying his daughter in a papoose rather than in his arms. Because, according to him, that’s how real men carry babies.

Of course, people have fired right back at Morgan’s utterly ridiculous remark. 

Captain America actor Chris Evans called out Morgan’s “uncertain” masculinity. 

“You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child. Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside,” Evans wrote.

GMB co-host Susanna Reid rightly pointed out that the only person who seems to have an issue with men using a papoose is Morgan. 

“No woman has an issue with a man carrying a baby in a papoose,” Reid wrote on Twitter. 

“This is YOUR issue.”

And The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil tweeted: “Empathy icon Piers Morgan strikes again! Just when you think he’s reached peak goon, he outdoes himself once more. How fragile can your ‘masculinity’ be if it can be dismantled by a cloth that allows you to hold your baby and be able to use both hands? Sounds pretty Bond to me!”

In an attempt to explain himself, after a fan slammed him by saying, “Apparently carrying and caring your own child is emasculating.” Morgan wrote, “There’s nothing wrong in carrying or caring for your child. I did it with all four of mine. My ire is directed solely at the papoose.”

Other Twitter users have also waded in on Morgan’s criticism, too. 

“I don’t often pay attention to Piers ‘I love Trump and the patriarchy’ Morgan but his guff yesterday about men carrying babies being ‘emasculated’ touched a nerve, given how lovely (and hot) my husband looks with our two-day-old son,” one user posted alongside a photo of her husband carrying their child in a papoose. 

Another posted: “Piers Morgan is the kind of dude who watches UFC, then goes to a jiu-jitsu class, gets torched by a 14 year old, pukes on his way out, and never shows up again.”

And plenty of men have shared photos of themselves wearing a papoose. 

Morgan, take your toxic masculinity elsewhere. It’s 2018 and we all love a papoose.
