Piers Morgan sparks fury by identifying as ‘trans-slender’ on GMB

Piers Morgan on ITV's Good Morning Britain.

Piers Morgan has provoked outrage by saying he identifies as “trans-slender” on Good Morning Britain.

The ITV presenter told viewers on Friday (April 5): “I’d like to now announce that I’m identifying as skinny. In fact, I’m one of the world’s first trans-slenders.

“So I will be now trans-slender. So you can’t actually call me fat anymore, because I’m now identifying as skinny, and I expect to be afforded the respect that being a trans-slender affords me.”

Good Morning Britain‘s Twitter account posted the clip with the caption: “Defiant @piersmorgan says his colleagues can no longer ‘fat shame’ him because he now identifies as ‘skinny’ .”

Morgan has previously said on separate occasions that he identifies as an elephant, a giraffe and a black person.

PinkNews has contacted ITV for comment.
