Piers Morgan is barely hanging on by a thread as the modern world continues to confuse him.
This week it was the news that a gender neutral penguin has arrived at Sea Life in London, while BBC Films are being used in schools to teach children that there are ‘more than 100 genders’.
Anything to do with gender sends the outspoken presenter over the edge, and on Wednesday’s show he declared him a ‘two-spirit penguin’, referring to one the 100 genders being a ‘two-spirit person’.
Piers raged: ‘What are you doing to these kids? What’s a two-spirit person? What’s wrong with male and female out of interest?
‘I’m a penguin. Identifying as a two spirit penguin. Everyone happy with that?’
His co-host Susanna Reid added: ‘I think if you want to identify as a pan penguin that’s fine.’
Piers snapped back: ‘It’s not fine that’s the point. It’s not fine, the BBC shouldn’t be doing this.’
He then turned to the topic of a new version of the board game Monopoly which gives female players more money in reference to the gender pay gap.
When Susanna supported the idea, Piers raged: ‘What a pathetic, spineless weak, individual you’ve become.
‘What you want is to have is to have an unfair advantage. Because women really have it tough these days. It’s really hard.’
Susanna commented that ‘some’ women do have it hard – namely from 6 to 8.30am on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings – her co-host taunted her over her ‘massive’ ITV pay.
Piers said: ‘Oh yeah, you and your massive, massive salary, sitting here doing your four days a week, living in your flash house and living a life of unparalleled luxury.
‘You, Susanna Reid are one of the downtrodden ones. You broke free from Croydon and things have got worse.’
Also on the show Piers fired back at This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for taunting him over their fourth TV Choice award win.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
