Emily Ratajkowski Posed Nude for 'Harper's Bazaar,' Piers Morgan Weighs In
In case you missed it, Emily Ratajkowski posed nude for Harper's Bazaar — and professional pot-stirrer Piers Morgan has some thoughts about it.
For the glossy's August issue, the 25-year-old actress was photographed by Mona Kuhn as Lady Godiva, the English character who took a notorious horse ride in the buff through the ancient city of Coventry. The spread accompanies an interview penned by acclaimed feminist writer Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth.
"Me as Lady Godiva for @harpersbazaarus," Ratajkowski captioned a photo from the magazine on Instagram. "Naomi Wolf is someone I grew up admiring. Her ideas in The Beauty Myth and Promiscuities helped me to develop the opinions I carry today."
So why does Morgan care? That's a good question, but he does. "Emily Ratajkowski posing FULLY-CLOTHED would be a bigger news story," he tweeted of the feature.
When a fellow tweeter took issue with his comment, the former news anchor continued, "My only issue is Ms Ratajkowski's claim that her stripping's in the name of feminism. It's in the name of money."

Ratajkowski directly replied to Morgan writing, "@piersmorgan thanks, but I don't need clothes as much as you need press." Additionally, she posted a screengrab from the story, which serves as a reply in itself:

Meanwhile, Morgan has continued to do what Morgan has done best: unapologetically tweet more inflammatory remarks.
Blimey.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 7, 2016
Is that what you look like with your clothes on? https://t.co/ScKtwzXhb4
Even I'd choose dinner with Emily over myself.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 7, 2016
So long as she desisted from 'feminist' naked bird-flipping selfies. https://t.co/UvxUkhG6hK
I suspect that's not top of Emily's to-do list. https://t.co/ygT3S6xJYX— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 7, 2016
