Shortly before he was set to appear on Good Morning Britain, Scottish dreamboat and Jedi Master Ewan McGregor pulled out of the interview over Piers Morgan's assholery—in particular, his assholery over the Women's March.
Ewan McGregor was going to promote T2: Trainspotting on Piers Morgan's show, but would rather not have to do it while giving a notorious a-hole a platform.
Obviously Piers Morgan was mature about it.
Ah yes, the irony of Piers Morgan saying "you should be big enough to allow people different political opinions." He was the one who whined about feminists in motion.
Obi-wan Ewan supported the marches and said on Twitter that his daughters attended.
Morgan's "retort" kind of misses the point. According to The Guardian, Piers Morgan said on the telecast, “Sorry that Ewan McGregor’s not here. He couldn’t bear the thought of being on the sofa with me because he doesn’t agree with me about the Women’s March… I have to agree with what an actor thinks about a particular issue because they’re actors. And as we know actors’ views are more important than anybody else’s."
He then treated the world to an op-ed.
Imma let you finish, but Donald Trump is already the Kim Jong-un of Hollywood.
A dude like Piers Morgan, while mostly famous for being the worst, has a career because he interviews celebrities. If celebrities don't grant him interviews, than Piers Morgan is just another misogynist with a Twitter account, and there's already plenty of those.
Just a thought: It might serve Piers Morgan well to stop being awful.
