Dick Van Dyke owning Piers Morgan is the burn we all need to see right now
If there’s one thing we all enjoy, it’s seeing Piers Morgan get put in his place. In the past, he’s suffered brutal takedowns courtesy of Ariana Grande, Dan Walker and Gary Lineker, so he must be used to it, but his latest public humiliation was a little different.
In an attempt to be funny, the Good Morning Britain host tweeted this comment about legendary actor Dick Van Dyke‘s name.
Imagine being called Dick Van Dyke in this PC-crazed era?
He'll have to change his name to Richard Van Non-Binary-Gender-Fluid. pic.twitter.com/rStgEhQl1I

Piers Morgan should have known that nobody gets to throw shade at Dick Van Dyke and get away with it – if he didn’t know before, he definitely does now.

Not only did we have the pleasure of seeing Piers Morgan get totally owned by a 92-year-old, but Dick Van Dyke didn’t even need to use words to do it, just one perfect screenshot from his hit series Diagnosis Murder.
Twitter user Simon Pegg – not that one – summed up the situation with this succinct comment.
Diagnosis: Murder by burning.
Twitter being what it is, there were more burns heading his way.

Imagine being called Piers Morgan in this era in which everyone knows Piers Morgan is a desperate, attention-seeking, aggressively ignorant, media-chasing, grumpy old man (who also doesn’t know what non-binary or gender-fluid mean). https://t.co/WANir1lUqm

Mary Tyler Moore told a much better version of that joke thirty years ago. Then again, Mary Tyler Moore was funny!

Do not fuck with a guy in his 90s. They've outlived the majority of their enemies. They're not afraid of you. https://t.co/ucwdNwMzV3

The ageless and brilliant Dick Van Dyke just took down Piers Moron in the most wonderful way. Absolutely pwned. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 could be tweet of the year contender. https://t.co/ZfRItvaE6Y

We particularly liked this fact.
If ever a tweet deserved to be pinned, it’s that one.
