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's not up to men to decide if Little Mix's 'Strip' video empowers women

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.

Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular.

Then Ariana joined in just to make things crystal clear.

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye Piers.

Little Mix and Ariana shared an adorable exchange.

Our hearts.

And Marina, Chrissy and Ellen were out for blood.

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.

We're crying.

Make it make sense.

We despair.

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.

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.
