Comedian Bridget Christie invites Piers Morgan to "Fuck off, mate”
Who hasn't dreamt of telling Piers Morgan where to go?
Jam-packed with inspiring women from all walks of life - among them musicians, comedians, artists, writers, activists and performers - Latitude and Longitude Festivals are all about celebrating International Women's Day today.
Organisers have pulled together some quotes regarding the celebration of inspirational women from some of this year's top female talent, one of which was comedian Bridget Christie, and she had a few choice words for Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan.
"Time's Up indeed," she began.
"I've found the #MeToo and Time's Up movements incredibly inspiring and emboldening, but while I'm obviously delighted loads of men are now shitting themselves and examining their own conduct and behaviour, it has taken 200,000 years to get to this point.
"Call me fussy and ungrateful, but in an ideal world, men shouldn't need the threat of being publicly exposed to understand why jizzing into a plant pot in front of a stranger is NOT cool, they should just instinctively know. Anyway, softly softly catchee monkey. We're getting there!
"Oh yes, and as I'm not on Twitter can someone give Piers Morgan a message for me? Fuck off, mate."
While she didn't provide a quote, Grammy Award-winning recording artist, songwriter, and visual artist Solange, who will be headlining Longitude in Dublin on Sunday 15 July, has used her public platform to advocate for justice and fair representation, promoting constructive and empowering political messages for quite some time.
She was the recent reciprocate of the Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year Award, and was named one of Glamour Magazine’s women of 2017. Last year she also received the Billboard Impact Award.
Other quotes came from Jessie Ware, who commented: "I’m so excited about festival season this year, being able to sing and catch so many other women performing in their element and inspiring me. I learn so much every year."
