Piers Morgan has said that no one can call him fat anymore because he actually identifies as “trans-slender”.
The TV host was fat-shamed on TV weeks ago so the Good Morning Britain host informed his co-host, Susanna Reid, that he’s now trans-slender.
He made the big announcement on Wednesday during his show.
Piers, 54, told his co-hosts: “I’ve got a big announcement to make… I’m carrying a bit of timber but I’m identifying as skinny. I’m a trans-slender. It’s the new thing.”
Richard Arnold seemed to find it hilarious and burst into laughter as Piers seemed to take a jab at people who identify as transgender.
Susanna asked: “So we can’t fat-shame you anymore.”
And Piers clarified: “Well you can but because I’m identifying as skinny, I’m no longer fat.”
He added: “I’m no longer fat, I’m identifying as skinny so you can no longer fat-shame me. I am officially trans-slender and I expect to be treated with the respect that my new status and identity affords me, which is that I’m skinny. So there we are. I feel good.”
Piers later took to Instagram to post about being trans-slender which a text photo that reads: “I’m fat but I identify as skinny. I’m trans-slender.”
He captioned it: “A personal announcement.
