A fan then brought up Cher, who famously refuses to let age dim her love for sequins, fishnets, and extravagant formalwear.
To which Cher replied:

If Piers Doesn’t Want To See Fishnets,On An Old Diva’s Legs,..He
Should’t Wear Them‼️
For the record, I have never worn fishnet stockings. Nor do I ever intend to.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 2, 2015
Twitter is indeed a marvelous place. Where else would you get to witness Cher arguing with a British journalist about her right to wear fishnet stockings?
I'm now in a Twitter war with @cher over her right to wear fishnets on stage at 68.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 2, 2015
How's your day going, everyone?
Throughout the evening, Piers Morgan also tweeted about the recent L.A.P.D. shooting, which made for a bizarre juxtaposition with his public insults of a woman’s clothing choices. It was a pure, textbook example of a man offering his unsolicited opinion on the Internet.
Thankfully, Twitter monarch Cher came out as the clear winner here. Cher, we salute your always-appropriate emoji usage.
