Piers Morgan and Cher duked it out on Twitter over fishnets

Celebrity culture gets weirder by the day.

Former CNN host Piers Morgan spent part of Monday night tweeting insults about Cher‘s appearance, just in case anyone was wondering if he was still a classless jerk.

The whole thing began with a tweet from Perez Hilton asking if Morgan still hated Madonna. (Answer: He does, because she does not wear enough clothes for Morgan’s satisfaction.)

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:

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?

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.
