Los Angeles, Sep 18 (IANS) The iconic girl band Little Mix slammed news broadcaster Piers Morgan after he trolled them for their song “Strip”.
During their recent performance in Madrid, the band showcased a footage of Piers demanding an apology from the band after their bodyshaming row in November last year, reports “thesun.co.uk”.
In the video, Piers said: “Little Mix I think you need to make a public apology. If you’ve got the b**ls, come on this programme and say it to my face.”
After showing the video, the band members, including Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh- Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwal, kicked off the song with “Come and say it to my face”.
The row started when Morgan took issue with a promotional image for their single “Strip” on their latest album LM5.
The photograph shows the girls in black and white, with insults written on their bodies.
The image did not go down well with Piers as he commented: “If men do that they’re arrested, if women do that, it’s empowering. Very, very empowering. Their stripping off to sell albums. Let’s just call it what it is. It’s not about feminist empowerment, it’s about ‘Let’s all get naked, everyone will run the pictures, we’ll sell more records’. That’s it. The rest of it is baloney.”
After Piers’ harsh remark, Jessy called him a “silly twat”. The drama continued after that, with Piers demanding a public apology from the band.
