LONDON - As millions of people around the world marched to champion women's rights and equality on Saturday, one man had something rather infuriating to say about it.

TV presenter Piers Morgan took issue with people at Women's Marches, dubbing them "rabid feminists."

Morgan decided to organise a "Men's March" to protest "the creeping global emasculation" of his gender.

But Morgan's inflammatory remark got the shutdown it deserved from his co-host on Good Morning Britain, Susanna Reid.

Naturally, Morgan's tweets about the Men's March invited the ire of A LOT of people on Twitter.

The former leader of the Labour party was on hand to put Morgan in his place.
