Piers Morgan has left fans furious after his recent dig at Madonna online, making fun of her “new face.”
This comes after Madonna recently addressed the backlash she received over her appearance at the Grammys.
Morgan isn’t the first to have commented on her appearance.
Now, Madonna is known as the Queen of Pop for a reason. From her back-to-back hits like Hung Up to Material Girl, the legendary singer has garnered a worldwide fan following since the 80s.
But more recently, the star has taken to social media, and the majority of comments she receives are from people hating on her looks.
Whether it’s highlighting how she’s aged or questioning whether she’s had work done, there’s almost always a torrent of abuse flung her way no matter what kind of video she posts.
And it seems the star has finally had enough of the outdated narrative.
You may have seen that Madonna recently grabbed the attention of fans after her appearance at the Grammys left the internet feeling confused.
The “Vogue” singer briefly appeared at the 65th annual award show to introduce Sam Smith and Kim Petras, and fans think she’s become unrecognizable.
“This legit looks like a Madonna impersonator with pics of the real Madonna in the background. She really f**ked up her face,” wrote one.
“Madonna looks good for her age… if her age is 2,700 year old vampire who eats babies and small animals alive,” a second joked.
“Has Madonna been nominated for ‘Best New Face’ at this year’s Grammy Awards?” offered another.
“What magic formula was used to create #Madonna’s new face? I’m so confused!” someone else said.
Within the myriad of abuse online came a particularly harsh comment from TV presenter Piers Morgan, who took things way too far, criticizing her “new face.”
He took to Twitter shortly after Madonna’s Grammy appearance to share a zoomed in screenshot of the star on stage, along with the caption: “I thought Halloween was in October?”
Fans weren’t at all happy with his joke, and many took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
One wrote: “Don’t be cruel Piers. Madonna rocks,”
While another said: “Why are you shaming her? Shame on you !”
“Cruel and unnecessary to comment in such a way. Please do better,” a third commented.
The singer has since responded to such critiques on Instagram, saying that they are part of a wider social issue with how we view women as they become older.
She took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the social media backlash, writing in part: “Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam and Kim- Many people chose to only talk about Close-up photos of me Taken with a long lens camera By a press photographer that Would distort anyone’s face!!
“Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny That permeates the world we live in. A world that refuses to celebrate women past the age of 45 And feels the need to punish her If she continues to be strong willed, hard-working and adventurous.”
