Tess Holliday slams Piers Morgan for saying she 'needs better friends' to tell her she's 'dangerously overweight'

Piers Morgan has found a new target for his Twitter trolling: plus-size model Tess Holliday. Unfortunately for him, this is one woman who won’t be bullied.

The beef started in August when Morgan, a British TV host and noted celebrity antagonist, slammed Holliday’s new cover for Cosmopolitan U.K. as “dangerous & misguided.”

Holliday responded to the criticism by calling Morgan and other body-shaming trolls “horrible people” who shouldn’t “worry about my fat ass.”

But a photo of the curvaceous beauty posing in her underwear has set Morgan off again. On Wednesday, he tweeted that the 33-year-old star is “dangerously overweight” and “needs better friends” who will push her to lose weight.


Holliday fired back with her own tweet accusing Morgan of being “obsessed” with her.


She wasn’t the only one offended by the 53-year-old’s fat-shaming comment. Many were quick to call out his rude remarks.






Looks like body positivity won this round against body shaming. Tough break, trolls.
