Piers Morgan, 53, expressed his frustration at the popstar Liam Payne, 25, after the former retweeted a snap of the singer as he posed naked in a chair. In view of his 6.7 million Twitter followers, the ITV presenter shared a snap of Liam in a photoshoot wearing nothing but a smouldering look at the camera. Piers captioned the post: “Erm…put it away mate @LiamPayne, yeah? This is cringe-making.” Fans were quick to respond to the post, with many taking Liam’s side in the cheeky banter.
One person commented: “I don’t know what you are talking about sir… but this is sexy. Maybe you’re jealous?”
Another person quipped: “Erm…get off of social media mate, yeah? This is cringe-making.”
While a third person jibed: “For God sake Piers. Don’t even think about copying this.”
But others seemingly appeared to agree with Piers, as one person said: “I love you @piersmorgan you say it exactly as it is!! #putitaway.”
Another person added: “Sorry, but this is cringeworthy. Listen to Piers & put it away!”(sic)
It comes after Liam recently took to Instagram where he drew the attention of his followers with an impromptu photoshoot.
The Good Morning Britain host expressed his anger online after Forbes announced Kylie Jenner, 21, as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire on Twitter.
Piers hit out at the label “self-made” and claimed she only got to her status thanks to her older sister Kim Kardashian.
The presenter wrote on Twitter as he quoted Forbes’ post: “It’s not self-made, it’s because her sister made a sex tape.”
Liam fired back, writing: “I’m sorry but Piers are you crazy your only here cuz you talk s**t about everyone and make controversial outbursts about people to get attention.
“At least @KylieJenner has her own business she built herself why not congratulate someone for once instead of knocking people.”
