Outspoken journalist Piers Morgan slammed socialite Amber Rose on Twitter.com, calling her half naked photo on Instagram.com “bullshit”.

It all started when the attention-seeking mother-of-one shocked her followers by posting a partially nude photo of herself on Instagram on Saturday. She was dressed in an open coat, a bikini top and nothing else underneath.

Rose explained that she posted her exposed genitals on behalf of “feminism, body positivity and not conforming to society norms of how we should love, what we should wear and where we should shave.”

The 33-year-old former stripper challenged her young female followers to upload photos of themselves posing in a similar vulgar manner. She tagged it the “#AmberRoseChallenge”.

Instagram.com deleted the graphic image but not before thousands of people right-clicked and saved the photo for educational purposes.

Referring to the image of Rose’s neatly manicured pubic area, Morgan, 52, tweeted: “Put it away, luv Thanks.”

Rose took offense at Morgan dismissing her symbol of femininity. “#IllTakeThingsMisogynisticAssholesSayfor500Alex,” she tweeted.

Which prompted Morgan to respond, “It’s not ‘misogyny’ to think that posting nude photos in the supposed name of feminist empowerment is pathetic attention-seeking bullsh-t.”

Enjoying the attention from an internationally known journalist, Rose fired back: “I am assuming you are referring to the pubic hair that was shown in the picture. Uncomfortable? Get over it.”

Morgan clapped back, “I can handle your naked body, Amber – relax. I just can’t handle your ridiculous claim to be stripping off in the name of feminism.”

Rose tweeted: “Lol ur an idiot ur first tweet to me was ‘Put it away luv thanks’ Lol ‘it’?”

He then responded, “Talking of idiots, can’t you think of a less dumb way to promote feminism than getting your kit off?”

Directing his anger at all narcissistic celebrities on Instagram, Morgan tweeted:

“I just find this new trend of famous women posting nude photos & pretending it’s to ‘promote feminism’ utterly laughable…. The only way for a woman to succeed in life is to post nude photos of themselves to millions of strangers’ – said no true feminist ever.”

Reveling in all the attention on Instagram and Twitter, Rose reposted the image on her Twitter.com account, captioning the image, “Imma post this one more time for the haters.”

Sandrarose.com is a family-oriented blog, and as such I do not publish smut on my blog. But the photo is readily available on the Internet if you know where to look.
