Good Morning Britain sure knows how to start a furious debate, and Tuesday's show featured a very hot topic.
Twitter went into meltdown after presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid discussed whether women over 50 are "too old for love".
The segment was inspired by a 50-year-old French author and TV presenter, Yann Moix who said women of his age are "invisible" to him.
Speaking to Marie-Claire magazine’s French edition, the prize-winning
idiot writer reportedly said of dating women over 50: "Come on now, let’s not exaggerate! That’s not possible… too, too old."
"I prefer younger women’s bodies, that’s all. End of. The body of a 25-year-old woman is extraordinary. The body of a woman of 50 is not extraordinary at all."
The morning news show welcomed TV star Lizzie Cundy, 50, who said the writer was "stupid" adding: "It's a disgusting thing to say." She referenced Liz Hurley, 53, and Elle MacPherson, 54, as examples of stunning women over 50.
I prefer younger women’s bodies, that’s all.
Piers then joked to 48-year-old Susanna "the clock is ticking."
She replied: "I know! I'm just relieved I don't have to go out with Yann Moix in a couple of years."
"As if he's got a chance with a 25-year-old anyway," added co-star Charlotte Hawkins.
Even controversial Piers called it "unbelievably sexist."
Lizzie said: "It's so sexist and ridiculous. It's dinosaur views," adding: "My life began at 50!"
The presenters later asked Lorraine Kelly for her thoughts and she called Yann a "buffoon and a clown," adding: " And he's missing out, frankly."
Twitter was ablaze with furious responses to the debate.
One wrote: "This is trolling of women, pure & simple. I really feel like we should find ways to not to give this stuff oxygen."
Another ranted: "This is a classic case of a mediocre white dude thinking he's being super rebellious and controversial while in fact being utterly bog standard."
A third tweeted: "Why can’t men like this just keep their mouths closed? Women over 50 are beautiful. Period. End. Of."
Some mocked the writer, saying: "50+ Women ALL OVER THE GLOBE are devastated that this rather exhausted looking 50 yr old tiny man has written us all off. Jasus 😂."
Another commented: "Doubt any self respecting woman over 50 would want to date the self-centred [bleep]!"
A few others defended his right to say it, with one tweeting: "It's very sad but I'm sure a high percentage of men Yann Moix's age think exactly the same as he does."
Another said: "He's entitled to his opinion 😊 I'm pretty sure he wouldn't like my opinion of most men😋."
A third eye-rolled: "Story: Man is asked for his taste in women, man says his taste in women, women who are not his taste get outraged 🙄." One troll even went further, writing: "Over 30 would be more accurate."
