In a bizarre moment during a segment on trans rights on TalkTV’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” a mysterious guest called the show’s namesake host a “c***.”
Morgan was interviewing someone who goes by the name “Jame” who was reportedly part of the Trans Rise Up group.
Jame was wearing a big, sunglasses and face mask to disguise their (it’s not immediately clear if that is Jame’s preferred pronoun) true identity.
The discussion quickly got tense after Morgan claimed he has always been a supporter of trans rights.
“That’s bullshit, bro,” Jame said, dropping the first obscenity of the segment.
“You can say ‘bullshit, bro’ and you’re entitled to. It’s an uncensored show and you’ve just proven it,” Morgan shot back. He eventually pushed the issue of trans women competing against women who were born female, which garnered a “shut up, bro” from Jame.
“Do you understand that a majority of women athletes do not give a shit about trans women in sports?” asked Jame.
“You can’t just call everyone who disagrees with you transphobic. If you keep swearing I’ll have to cut you off,” apparently suggesting that, as his show title suggests, only he, Piers Morgan, can be truly uncensored.
The interview then broke down as Jame began to remove their mic, saying “I kind of only came on here because I thought it would be kind of funny. But I wanted to say, ‘you’re a cunt’.”
Well, here's a perfect example of how NOT to have a proper debate 😳@piersmorgan | @TalkTV | #piersmorganuncensored pic.twitter.com/9pmNJz4pfF

After the interview ended, Morgan labeled Jame an “idiot” and “very unpleasant piece of work” and insisting that he wanted to have a “sensible” debate.
