AceShowbiz - Piers Morgan criticized Emily Ratajkowski for her raunchy, food-themed photoshoot for Love magazine, and the model's not having it. After the 52-year-old British journalist and TV personality branded her a "global bimbo," the 26-year-old model and actress took to her Twitter account to clap back at him.
"Lol never said my love video was a feminist statement," Emily began in her tweet. She continued, "But now it's worth saying that telling women what to do with their bodies & sexuality is actually just classic sexism." The "Blurred Lines" babe insisted, "I can have opinions about feminism & also do sexy photo shoots k thanks."
Piers previously said of Emily on his TV show "Good Morning Britain", "I don't know quite what she is...for goodness sake - get some clothes on and get yourself a proper job." Taking to Twitter, the former "Piers Morgan Tonight" host wrote alongside a photo collage from Emily's Love campaign, "This is Emily Ratajkowski 'promoting feminism.' "

It's not the first time Piers has slammed Emily. He previously criticized the "Gone Girl" actress for sending her friends and family naked Christmas cards, while he was also embroiled in an online row with reality TV star and socialite Kim Kardashian over her relentless naked selfies.
Emily previously explained in her impassioned post to fans, "To me, female sexuality and sexiness, no matter how conditioned it may be by a patriarchal ideal, can be incredibly empowering for a woman if she feels it is empowering to her." The British-born model continued that "the way I dress, act, flirt, dance, have sex -- those are my decisions and they shouldn't be impacted by men. Being sexy is fun and I like it. I should never have to apologize for that."
