Ewan McGregor was set to appear on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday to promote the Trainspotting sequel T2, but he’s no longer willing to go on the show after he learned that he would be talking to host Piers Morgan.
As millions of men and women around the world took to the streets to protest President Donald Trump and his policies, Morgan posted a tweet calling the protesters “rabid feminists” and proposed a “Men’s March.” He was widely criticized for the comments—including by his own co-host, Susan Reid—and he later thought it was absurd that people took his comments seriously.
Morgan called McGregor out for not appearing on his show, noting that he “should be big enough to allow people different political opinions.” He disagreed with the notion that McGregor bowing out was an instance of backlash against his views.
“Sorry that Ewan McGregor’s not here,” Morgan told his viewers. “He couldn’t bear the thought of being on the sofa with me because he doesn’t agree with me about the Women’s March.”
Morgan continued the conversation on Twitter for hours and vowed to write a column about McGregor refusing to do his show. Reid also expressed her disappointment about McGregor boycotting the show because of Morgan’s opinions on the Women’s March, and she’s been attacked for her co-hosts’ views.
Newsflash: I might be a feminist, and a strong woman, but I’m not a superhero with miracle powers.
