The gloves were removed when Piers Morgan, Ariana Grande, and even Grande's mother! -I was on Wednesday on Twitter.
It all started when Morgan, a British television personality and former participant of "Celebrity Apprentice", accused the female pop quartet Little Mix of stealing a photographic idea from the famous nude cover Rolling Stone by Dixie Chicks.
On Wednesday, Joan Grande responded to the tweet from Little Mix of the TV presenter, and asked: "Honestly, what's wrong with you @piersmorgan? Did not your mother ever teach you, if you do not have anything good to say, do not say it ? "
After suggesting that Little Mix was actually paying homage to the Dixie Chicks instead of plagiarizing, Big Major wanted to know why Morgan had gone after Ellen DeGeneres a day earlier.
"You came yesterday to @TheEllenShow, which was a shame, she is an angel," Grande chided him.
Big probably was referring to Morgan saying it was Degenerate sexist to air a montage of famous men's bodies. on the international day of men.
Morgan responded to the mother of Grande saying that he himself taught him to "say what I think and never be afraid to express (my) opinion honestly held".
He then argued that Little Mix should use his talent to sell records and not naked, as does Ariana, Joan's daughter.
The pop star hastened to intervene, defending DeGeneres and herself.
"I use my talent and my sexuality all the time because I choose," Grande wrote on Twitter. "Women can be sexual and talented, naked and dignified, it's our choice, and we'll keep fighting (until) people understand, I say this (with) all due respect, but thanks, next."
A few minutes later, Morgan thanked Grande, but warned that he would continue calling all women who use nudity to sell records.
But Grande was not over. She accused Morgan of using comments on female celebrities to get her own name in the headlines.
"I look forward to the day when you realize that there are other ways to make yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful and successful women for all they do," he wrote. "I think it will be something beautiful for you and your career or what's left of it."
Morgan wrote on Twitter and addressed Grande as a "young woman" and said her career is doing well and that she criticizes and praises everyone, regardless of gender, including Grande.
"I have written columns praising and criticizing you, and you deserved both," he said.
In an attempt to signal Morgan's hypocrisy, Grande cited Morgan's older tweet with a picture of him posing on the floor in front of a partially bare fireplace with a cloth wrapped around his waist. He was announcing a new column he had written.
Grande commented on the tweet saying: "When you do it, it's fine, right?"
Morgan jokingly asked if the image was Grande's screensaver. Grande replied: "No, and neither is your girl, I promise." Morgan responded with laughs of emojis and "I think the lady protests too much".
