Piers Morgan rarely has nothing to say...

The British TV presenter constantly has to have his opinion heard. Whether it's about politics, women's issues, or any other thing that doesn't concern him, he usually has something to say about it.

The journalist has several platforms...

Because just one platform isn't enough for Piers' many opinions. He regularly hosts the British breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, and writes semi-regular columns for the newspaper giant, Daily Mail.

And he certainly isn't absent on Twitter...

As you would expect, Piers' Twitter account is well and truly active; this seems to be the place in which he aims to stir up as much controversy as possible. I have to give it to him, he isn't afraid to speak his mind.

He's spent a lot of time here in the States.

As well as hosting his own show, Piers Morgan Live, he also had a stint as one of the judges on America's Got Talent.

And he's a good friend of our President, Donald Trump...

Piers hasn't been shy of publicly showing-off about his friendship with the President and is often one of the first to spring to his defense when things are going pear-shaped for him.

He remains the only British journalist to have secured a one-to-one interview with the President...

Piers Morgan was the only journalist who was able to carry out interviews with the President during his visits to the UK. Say what you will about him, but he has achieved some admirable things. Though being buddies with Trump may give you an advantage in this situation...

Though Piers' tantrums usually have nothing to do with the President.

Despite everything that's been going on with Trump's UK State visits (the protests and the utter outrage), Piers' outbursts vary in topics.

The Beckhams ruffled the feathers of Piers Morgan recently...

David Beckham, who is a famous soccer star and public figure, became a Piers Morgan victim for kissing his young daughter on the lips. Not a big deal, at all.

And of course, who could forget Meghan Markle...

Piers has made his opinion of the Duchess very well known, and he isn't a fan... at all.

Piers has blamed Meghan for "destroying" the Royal Family...

And he has made his opinion of her very well known to the British public.

Piers hasn't exactly been praised for his opinions...

And his most recent comments have caused public outrage.

On Tuesday morning, Piers was hosting his usual segment on Good Morning Britain...

After discussing climate change, Piers decided to draw attention to weather girl Laura Tobin's trousers, that were made of a leather-looking material.

Laura's outfit isn't at all inappropriate...

And we must say, she looks pretty great considering its 6 am!

Piers immediately attacked the poor woman when he noticed her clothing...

"Can we talk about your hot pants for a moment because you can’t wear something like that and not expect the public…," Piers began before adding, "They’re not just a pair of trousers, they’re skin-tight leather hot pants I’ve seen in many a year and you’ve paraded them for your 7 day…"

Luckily, co-host Susanna Reid stuck up for the meteorologist...

"She was doing her job as presenting the weather," she said, to which Piers replied with, "If you wear skin-tight leather trousers, you’re going to get people going... wow."

The conversation continued well into the show...

Piers defended himself by saying, "All of you wear clothes, you post them on your Instagram... They are fabulous trousers, I’ve noticed them, I don’t see why I shouldn’t be able to do that?"

Laura remained dignified throughout the little debate, but Susanna and Piers turned it into an argument...

"Saying they’re hot and sexualizing them is just one of those examples of when you’ve just gone a little bit too far," Susanna said to Piers in Laura's defense. "They’re hot trousers," Piers continued, "They’re not regular trousers. Most weather girls don’t wear hot leather trousers to do the weather, they don’t."

Audiences were not pleased with Piers' persisting comments...

And people began branding the outspoken journalist as "sexist" and "disgusting."

Many felt his behavior was sexually harassing...

And we must say, what on earth do her trousers have to do with presenting the news? They aren't relevant at all, and how she chooses to dress does not define her career.

Piers eventually spoke out through the backlash...

Responding to a tweet that has now been deleted, he wrote, "If you wear tight leather trousers to do the weather, you’re probably hoping people will notice... FYI," suggesting that Laura picked her trousers for a deliberate reason.
