A Little Mix singer’s tattoo got under Piers Morgan’s skin – our 12 favourite takedowns
It isn’t that long since Piers Morgan got crushed by Ariana Grande after starting a public argument with Little Mix over how they dress. It seems the hit girl group have really got under his skin, because he’s now got an issue with a tattoo on band member Jesy Nelson.

He tweeted about it, too – of course.
So Jesy Nelson from @LittleMix has had a gun tattooed into her ribcage. What a dangerously deluded & dumb thing to do.
And they wonder why I call them cynical & exploitative? pic.twitter.com/yHDMKcyyzs

Quite apart from the fact that he mistook a rib cage for a buttock, people can’t help wondering why the Good Morning Britain presenter is so obsessed with Little Mix. After the clip was aired and tweeted, he came in for some ribbing.
It's becoming increasingly creepy how Piers keeps on focusing on Little Mix. Quit it, lad. https://t.co/IxcJFQoaRW

Could you please take this down @piersmorgan my 9 year old boy has just inadvertently seen it and has now added a AR15 and a trench coat to his Christmas list!

you might as well switch to a little mix icon because you’re basically an update account at this point https://t.co/KhRrpYYCsv

“OmG JeSY NeLsOn GoT a GuN TatToO, Im GoInG tO bUy A GuN”
Said no one ever, just because a celebrity has a tattoo of something does not mean their so called “impressionable fans will get it”. Rihanna also has a tattoo of a gun, I don’t see anyone buying one because of her.

Jesy tattooing a little gun on her rib does not promote or invite fans to gun violence. Same way Justin Bieber's crosses and Jesuses didn't convert his millions of fans to Christianity. Tattoos are personal stories – good or bad taste, that's up to the individual. https://t.co/8qVVCQDIbY

So Jesy Nelson from @ LittleMix did whatever the fuck she wanted with her body because it’s HER body and you, a middle aged man, are still shaming her? just admit you’re after attention and fuck off, little mix remain unbothered https://t.co/Df3JfGAPRX

my favourite part about p dog trying to slag off jesy nelson mandelas new tattoo is that he looked at this pic of it and thought it was on her butt, thus confirming he has never seen a womans body up close before. sad little virgin man. pic.twitter.com/yULE4k9L7b

1. It's her body – it doesn't belong to Piers.
2. Gun imagry is everywhere – maybe this is a chance for parents to discuss guns with their kids rather than leave the parenting up to pop stars on instagram.

Ive got a "stargate" tattoo on my shoulder but it has never made me time travel.

12. There was also this serious shade from a young fan.
This is just another excuse for parents to blame Little Mix for their own bad parenting. If your child is that impressionable, they shouldn’t be on social media of all places. Little Mix is no ones moms & never even claimed to be role models. It’s the public who put that on them.

One major fact didn’t escape the attention of Twitter user, HLTCO.
