Imagine trying to describe the human shit show that is Piers Morgan to someone who’s never heard of him. You might begin by saying he’s a British blowhard TV personality, who feels the need to stick his nose into every conversation, no matter how outside his lane. You might try to explain the time he lectured Susan Sarandon on proper boob exposure, or when he counseled a post-“Formation” Beyoncé on how to be a better Black woman, or one of the many many times he attempted to own feminism by slamming Kim Kardashian. Point is the guy is an asshat who masquerades as a liberal while promoting the most mealy-mouthed brand of mainstream regressivism.

So of course when this Celebrity Apprentice winner got into a discussion about his old pal Donald, he defended Trump while proclaiming his fellow liberals were getting hysterical. And in a deliciously satisfying and savage rejoinder, brilliant stand-up comedian Jim Jeffries told Morgan to “fuck off,” then eviscerated the posh blowhard’s petty rhetoric.

And things only got worse for Morgan when Harry Potter author JK Rowling retweeted the above video:

Morgan hit back. But dude was punching above his weight class.

(EW notes this is a reference to Morgan using “fabricated photos of British soldiers torturing an Iraqi prisoner,” which got him sacked from the Daily Mirror in 2004.)

Then more of our favorite celebs joined in the Piers pile-on, and it was a thing of beauty.
