Piers Morgan met his match during a live appearance on Bill Maher’s show this week. In the shape of comedian Jim Jeffries.
As Morgan attempted to whitewash the sexism, racism and authoritarian acts of President Donald Trump – Jeffries got very real, very fast. In fact, he told Piers Morgan to fuck off – literally.

The fallout triggered a sweary Twitter war between Morgan, and Harry Potter author JK Rowling. This also did not end well for Piers.
The fact-free, amoral, bigotry-apologism of celebrity toady Piers Morgan is, of course, why it's so delicious to see him told to fuck off. https://t.co/4XNF4G0nlD

Finally, on Twitter, users summed the whole thing up quite neatly. Game over Mr Morgan.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
