Piers Morgan causes uproar over jibe about Greggs vegan sausage rolls

He sparked outrage with his meaty malice

Never one to hold back, Piers Morgan has voiced his fury at the creation of vegan sausage rolls but he's faced a barrage of backlash for it!

When Greggs bakery announced they would be selling the vegan-friendly snack the Good Morning Britain host slammed them on Twitter.

He wrote: "Nobody was waiting for a vegan bloody sausage, you PC-ravaged clowns."

Greggs saw the funny side, though, replying with: "Oh hello Piers, we've been expecting you".

Nobody was waiting for a vegan bloody sausage, you PC-ravaged clowns.

Clearly irked, Piers fired back at the food chain with: "Isn't it time you changed your name to something more gender-fluid & less toxically masculine?"

He then went on to say he was starting the "vegan resistance"!

It wasn't long before the 53-year-old presenter received multiple retaliations for his vegan bashing.

His celebrity pal Amanda Holden was among those who put him in his place!

The 47-year-old Britain's Got Talent judge shocked Piers when she informed him that she "was" all for the vegan treat.

He also attracted a wave of criticism from frustrated social media users after his online jibes.

One twitter user sarcastically posted: "Hi I'm Piers Morgan and I have a problem with companies catering to people who are not me because everything should be about me or I'll throw a tantrum (am I getting this right)".

Another wrote: "As a Guardian reading, feminist, vegan with pink hair I have been waiting for this for many years. Thanks @GreggsOfficial I will be buying one today. Would not have known about it, without your advertising @piersmorgan".

Meanwhile, I'm A Celebrity's James McVey even waded in to tell Piers off!

The 24-year-old The Vamps star tweeted: "Oh bugger off Scrooge 😂".
