Piers Morgan, 54, has been enjoying a break from Good Morning Britain by soaking up the sun in California, United States.
At the weekend, the presenter shared a snap of himself on Venice Beach posing in front of an Arsenal mural.
Piers looked delighted to be standing next to three painted Arsenal stars, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyan.
He captioned the snap: “Venice ‘Gooner’ Beach. #LA #Bergkamp @Aubameyang7 @ThierryHenry.”
At least get the woman’s name right
His photo caught the attention of TV and executive producer, Ben Winston, who slammed him for “cutting out” a female Arsenal footballer who also featured in the mural.
Ben wrote: “Dear oh dear. Only you @piersmorgan would cut out the female player, Kelly Smith. See my next tweet for what this picture should have been.”
However, it seems the person then sent Piers a follow-up tweet, correcting themselves as they changed the name in question from Kelly to Leah Williamson.
Sharing two screenshots of the posts sent from Ben, Piers hit out: “Hi mate @benwinston, if you must persist in such pitiful virtue-signalling, at least get the woman’s name right…”
Ben replied: “Well there is a debate !! Some think it’s Leah , some think it’s Kelly ! Looks like Kelly- but it’s in Leah’s current kit. Who do you think it is between them? Or would you not know who they were?”
The producer then shared a photo of the full mural, with the female footballer on the left of Dennis Bergkamp.
Some of Ben’s 431,500 Twitter followers weren’t pleased he hit out at Piers with one writing: “It’s his @piersmorgan pic. Put who you want in urs, free world. Besides, we don’t even know who she is.”(sic)
“I’m sorry Ben, but that’s actually pathetic,” another said.
While one person commented on Piers’ post: “If he wants to cut her off he can! It’s his Twitter, only today can people get offended by something or someone they don’t have to follow!!!”
Despite having a break from Good Morning Britain, Piers hasn’t spent much time away from Twitter.
Yesterday, the Life Stories’ presenter responded to a dig made by Pointless star, Richard Osman.
The latter retweeted a news article which was posted with the headline: “People vomiting after chemical incident at Worthing pier.”
The Pointless star saw the opportunity to make a dig at Piers, in view of his 806,000 followers, and said: “Piers making people vomit is nothing new.”
Piers certainly didn’t seem too happy with Richard and replied to his tweet: “Thanks D**k.”
“I’m talking about helter-skelters,” Richard responded.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV from 6am.
