Piers Morgan has had a rough 24 hours of it...

The controversial pundit has been fighting with JK Rowling and many more over Donald Trump.

PIERS MORGAN ISN’T exactly having the best time of it lately.

The British TV presenter is an avid supporter of Donald Trump, and lets us know about it at every opportunity.

Ewan McGregor recently cancelled an appearance on Good Morning Britain after he discovered Piers would be hosting the show, and it all kicked off.

Piers faced some backlash again when he appeared on Real Time With Bill Maher with Australian comedian Jim Jefferies yesterday, and things got a little heated.

When talk of Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ came up, Jim promptly told Piers to “f**k off” when he attempted to suggest it wasn’t a ban at all

There is no Muslim ban. This is the hysteria I’m talking about. 85% of the world’s Muslims are allowed in the country.

Jefferies wasn’t having any of it


Oh f**k off. This is what you do, Piers. You say he hasn’t done this, he hasn’t done that, he’s not going to do all these things. Give him a f*cking chance mate. Hitler didn’t kill all the Jews on the first day, he worked up to it.

Watch the whole thing unfold here, with very bad language within obviously.

Piers then spent the night defending himself on Twitter


He even took on JK Rowling herself

Rowling clapped back, of course. Repeatedly. In a way only she could

Piers, put the phone down. These zingers will hurt for a few days to come.

Still, at least he’s taking it well.
