Emily Ratajkowski Claps Back at Piers Morgan’s ‘Classic Sexism’
By Rachel McRady
Emily Ratajkowski isn’t letting Piers Morgan off that easily! The Good Morning Britain host slammed the 26-year-old model’s racy Love magazine advent calendar video on his British morning show on Wednesday.
Morgan and his co-host, Susanna Reid, got into a debate about Ratajkowski being a feminist representative after Ratajkowski filmed a sexy video of herself covered in spaghetti.
“Take Taylor Swift who never does any of this stuff. She’s the No. 1 pop star in the world, never does topless selfies, never seen writhing in spaghetti and the sisterhood, the feminists, hate her,” Morgan declared. “Taylor Swift conducts herself perfectly in my view and took a view not to talk about politics or say who she votes for and the sisterhood have come for her… Emily, writhing in spaghetti, she’s what it’s all about. Women, sort it out. We are confused.”
The video was also debated by two female guests on the show, who could not agree about whether Ratajkowski’s actions pro or anti-feminist.
The model took to Twitter to respond to the criticism, writing, “Lol never said my love video was a feminist statement. But now it’s worth saying that telling women what to do with their bodies & sexuality is actually just classic sexism. I can have opinions about feminism & also do sexy photo shoots k thanks.”

Ratajkowski has long been an advocate of embracing her body and sexuality. In March 2016, she posed topless with Kim Kardashian as a show of support after the reality star got into an online feud with Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz over her skin-baring posts.
