Piers Morgan slammed Jennifer Aniston’s article about body-shaming women and said that the actress herself agrees with having herself airbrushed for magazine covers. His criticism was then slammed by Chrissy Teigen and Anna Paquin.
Following Jennifer Aniston’s piece about women and their objectification in the society, British journalist and former America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan said that she is part of the issue.
“There’s another reason why the media objectify and scrutinize famous women, and why little girls get confused about beauty and body image,” he said for the Daily Mail. “It’s this: female stars like Jennifer Aniston deliberately perpetuate the myth of ‘perfection’ by posing for endless magazine covers which have been airbrushed so much that in some cases the celebrity is virtually unrecognizable.”
Chrissy Teigen and Anna Paquin quickly slammed back at the journalisst and defended Jennifer Aniston, Just Jared reported.
“@piersmorgan saw your piece on Jennifer Aniston. Why do you ALWAYS take the road of being the piece of s–t a–hole?” the model said in her Twitter.
The 30-year-old spouse of John Legend also added, “Particularly with women and people of color. tell me it’s just for clicks?? Please tell me you aren’t TRULY this vile.”
But then Pier Morgan answered back saying, “No, my little bundle of hypocrisy, YOU’RE using ME for clickbait. Now hush before your sanctimonious spleen bursts.”
Anna Paquin also came in defense of Jennifer Aniston as she said that Piers Morgan is missing the whole point as he is not a woman in the public eye, Us magazine said in a report.
She tweeted, “1) we aren’t actually given the option of not being photo shopped. 2) You’ve never been subjected to this kind of bullying.”
Jennifer Aniston recently published an op-ed saying clearing controversies about rumors on pregnancy while slamming the media for making news stories that makes women an object of scrutiny depending on how they look.
“For the record, I am not pregnant,” she said in Huffington Post. “What I am is fed up. I’m fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of “journalism,” the “First Amendment” and “celebrity news.”
