Why have men the last 24 hours tweeted pictures of themselves with their children strapped on their chest? It’s because Piers Morgen has a problem with papooses. Oh, and also Star Wars, apparently.

A very old fashioned and unsavoury attitude to have when your view is that this is wholly abnormal. pic.twitter.com/14yvEzu6mH— Rowland Woolley (@Woolley_Bear) October 16, 2018
Takes a real strong man to shame the way a father carries his baby, Piers. I don’t have kids, but this is Kaiju. She’s a 6.5lb Pomeranian and somehow still more “alpha” than you’ll ever be. pic.twitter.com/7ucVYxMtGf— Kevin Burke (@KevinBurke32) October 16, 2018
I just expressed a genuinely held opinion that papooses are emasculating, embarrassing & unnecessary - and the virtue-signalling world’s gone bonkers. https://t.co/EvPJFPVBiz— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 16, 2018

It all started when Piers Morgan, an English journalist currently working for television show Good Morning Britain, went after 007-actor Daniel Craig.
After Morgan took a stab at Craig, for carrying a papoose, fathers on Twitter started to respond to his tweets.
Morgan seemed to enjoy the debate, and continued describing how “emasculating, embarrassing & unnecessary” papooses were. He also mentioned he hated Star Wars almost as much as papooses.
In a series of tweets Piers Morgan claimed that men who used devices such as papooses to carry their babies, only did so because their wives/girlfriends told them to. Morgan says “Imagine being such a loser that it doesn’t upset you”, referring to an image of Daniel Craig carrying his child in a papoose.
Men on Twitter used the opportunity to show off their babies being being carried by them in papooses, and mocked Piers Morgan for the ideas he was trying to put into men’s heads.
Well said. My twin boys were preemies. My wife was very sick after delivering as well. One of my best memories, snuggling each of my guys. On the first day, I had a t-shirt, so they gave me a gown to wear. Wore button downs after that. Eat a dick, @piersmorgan. pic.twitter.com/9JiHkjr9OP— Matt, MD (@AnalyticalDoc) October 16, 2018
Piers Morgan is known for belittling those who call him out by using his fame. He also recently mocked gender identity.
Below, some examples of tweets where Morgan is called out by Twitter users for his online behaviour. Enjoy!

Piers Morgan: "Oh, let me post this pic of a dad carrying his baby, and specifically call him emasculated."— The Lamityville Horror (@AnxiousPenman) October 16, 2018
Also Piers Morgan: "The twitter mob is bullying me for literally posting a pic of a man with his child with the express purpose of BULLYING HIM."
God that dude is trash.
What a pig he is— Rosanna Arquette (@RoArquette) October 16, 2018
This is me wearing an Elsa dress after Lyric asked me to wear her Mom’s Halloween costume. I look ridiculous. But who cares? That’s what you do for your kids. I’m sure @piersmorgan would find this emasculating. I say only if you’re uncomfortable in your masculinity. pic.twitter.com/kDOvnw4pz2— Adam (Edge) Copeland (@EdgeRatedR) October 16, 2018
I see Piers Morgan’s got a new line in mugs at M&S. pic.twitter.com/53XIx62Nzv— Tom Price (@pricetom) October 16, 2018
How insecure and weak must you be to comment on another man's masculinity for the fact he's carrying his child? @piersmorgan is hardly a man himself and more of a child in the way he's ran to @realDonaldTrump to fight his arguments. Grow up you douche.— Opinionated Realist (@OpinionRealist) October 16, 2018
You really do peddle some absolute twaddle on twitter Piers. pic.twitter.com/NVFaA8TbBL— Rob Brown (@bobby_1982) October 16, 2018
Exactly. Like whatever you like.— Myke (@Sinixstar) October 16, 2018
But making fun of someone for being a fucking father? What kind of asshole is this guy?
Piers Morgan, who constantly calls people snowflakes and says that people are too offended nowadays, has been tweeting through the night because he's angry that men hold their children— TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) October 16, 2018
Seeing my husband carry our babies only makes him more of a man 😍 pic.twitter.com/Mc4QWUDFoT— Big Tree's Wife (@BigTreesWife) October 16, 2018
There was nothing better than taking my daughter for a walk in the sling when she was young. Gave my wife a break and some different scenery for my daughter. Never once felt "emasculated". What a ridiculous thought. pic.twitter.com/5M1UukjBzJ— Andy Smith (@asmith_1979) October 16, 2018

I'm a stay-at-home dad. I have insecure dudes constantly acting like, somehow, parenting my child makes me less of a man. Speaks a lot on their perception of manhood. pic.twitter.com/FqU1zJJwxq— The Lamityville Horror (@AnxiousPenman) October 15, 2018
