Ariana Grande called out Piers Morgan for slating Little Mix's naked 'Strip' video scene and everyone including Ellen Degeneres, Chrissy Teigen and Marina and the Diamonds got involved...
It is hard to believe that just a week ago the great war of Little Mix, Ariana Grande and women around the world versus Piers Morgan was yet to take place. In fact, there wasn't even an indication that it would happen. And yet, here we are. After days of fighting on both sides, we have one obvious victor. Women remain on top and Piers lays withering and gasping for air on the ground. Thank u, next.
It all started when Little Mix put out their stunning 'Strip' video on Friday. The visual stars Jesy, Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie alongside a diverse group of women of all shapes and sizes celebrating their bodies. Not to mention, it also features a nude shot of Little Mix reclaiming the insults that have been thrown at them in their career. It's brilliant but Piers took issue with it and the battle began.
Find out how Ariana, Ariana's mum, Marina and the Diamonds, Chrissy Teigen and Ellen Degeneres got involved below.
Instead of listening to Little Mix about what 'Strip' meant to them, Piers accused the group of getting naked to "sell records" (sigh) and then claimed that the video was "all about sex" (double sigh). When Little Mix were asked about Piers in a recent interview, Jesy hilariously called him a "bloody twat" which sent Piers (a grown man) into a fit AND a social media tirade.
This is where Ariana, Ariana's mum and everyone else comes in.
First, Joan (of Arc) Grande single-handedly ended Piers.
Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan ? Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it! You came for @TheEllenShow yesterday which was disgraceful, she is an angel. @LittleMix today, did you ever hear of paying homage? And..well never mind https://t.co/5WBOlL8t6O— Joan Grande (@joangrande) November 21, 2018
Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular.
Then Ariana joined in just to make things crystal clear.
Ellen is an incredible & kind human being.. I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because i choose to. women can be sexual AND talented. naked and dignified. it’s OUR choice. 🖤 & we will keep fighting til people understand. i say this w all due respect but thank u, next. https://t.co/wSknRSlJN8— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 21, 2018
also @piersmorgan, i look forward to the day you realize there are other ways to go about making yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful, successful women for everything they do. i think that’ll be a beautiful thing for you and your career or what’s left of it. 🖤— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 21, 2018
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye Piers.
Little Mix and Ariana shared an adorable exchange.
thank you ♥️ what we do with our bodies is our choice and we felt liberated owning the negative words thrown at us as women. We’ll never stop talking/writing music about issues that affect so many women around the world. We have a voice to use it! we love you Ari 🖤 the girls x— Little Mix (@LittleMix) November 21, 2018
And Marina, Chrissy and Ellen were out for blood.
They’re not “using” nudity. They’re grown women and shouldn’t live their lives catering to what they think a 9 year old will like. That would be weird. If young kids like a pop artist’s music it’s usually a product of the way pop culture spreads, not an actual goal of the artist. https://t.co/V1sVEgZ9xt— Marina (@MarinaDiamandis) November 21, 2018
every time someone mentions piers, his dick gets another power boil and his nips cry tears of joy— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 21, 2018
In conclusion, all of our faves put Piers Morgan in his place.
Unsurprisingly, the internet was living for the entire exchange. Piers regularly uses his platform to try to discredit women and air his misogynistic opinions. It's beyond tiresome but it's always heartwarming to see people like Ariana give him a piece of their mind and people like Little Mix ignore him (since "bloody twat", they've not acknowledged him).
In fact, people love it so much that they've meme-d the moment. Here are just a few of the hilarious memes that it inspired.
First, there were the Jesy Nelson "bloody twat" memes.

Make it make sense.
piers morgan really wants an apology for jesy calling him a twat .... but ... keeps body shaming ... and slut shaming ... jesy ?????— leanne (@glorylikeperrie) November 20, 2018
Then there were the Ariana, Joan and Ellen memes.

God bless the internet.
A couple of people started joking about the fact that Little Mix barely said a word in the whole exchange.

"Bloody twat" really was the phrase that launched a thousand ships.
In conclusion, don't come for pop queens.
Ariana recreating “Bring It On” AND ending Piers Morgan’s career all in a day’s work is why we stan.— Ξvan Ross Katz (@evanrosskatz) November 22, 2018
not only did ariana grande defend her sisters aka little mix but came for a man that simply has no respect for women. don’t come for the ladies of pop darling 💁♀️— man like dannii ☀️ (@oscahhhhh) November 21, 2018
Thank u, next.
Now can we get that Little Mix and Ariana duet please.
It's long overdue.
Preferably this but we're not picky.
