The Trainspotting star has hit out at the host's comments on the Women's March
Ewan McGregor has pulled out of a TV appearance in protest over Piers Morgan's comments about the weekend's protests over Donald Trump.
The Good Morning Britain host has made a number of disparaging remarks about the recent 'women's marches':
I'm planning a 'Men's March' to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists. Who's with me?— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 21, 2017
Bomb threats, Hitler & incest taunts, foul-mouthed rants...and this was a march to 'End the hate'? Shameful hypocrisy.#WomensMarch— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 21, 2017
McGregor, who is currently promoting the sequel to Trainspotting, took to Twitter himself this morning saying he was pulling out of a TV appearance over Morgan's comments.
On Saturday, McGregor said: "I'm with you in spirit today women of the world. My daughters are marching. I'm so proud to see this extraordinary power."
Following this morning's decision by McGregor, Morgan hit back in a series of Twitter posts - describing the star as 'just an actor' and accusing him of acting 'like a coward'.
Sorry to hear that @mcgregor_ewan - you should be big enough to allow people different political opinions. You're just an actor after all.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 24, 2017
