Sarcastic Piers Morgan says a twitter user's 'patronising sexist slur' has 'triggered his anxiety' as he continues his relentless crusade to cancel 'cancel culture'.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter spoke out following an interview by legendary comic Jennifer Saunders.
The star says Absolutely Fabulous would not have been made today 'because everything is sensitive'.
Piers was ticked off by that statement – and said no 'fun' humour is allowed anymore in the 'drab, dreary, fascist world of wokedom'.
But one user bit back at him, saying: "Has anyone tried to cancel Ab Fab? No. The culture and norms around comedy have changed since it was made.
Piers' war on the woke is not slowing down
"That's just called the passage of time hun."
Piers replied: "Please don’t call me ‘hun’- It’s a micro-aggressive patronising sexist slur that triggers my anxiety."
Jennifer is saddened by the the fact the show wouldn't be made in 2021.

She told The Sun that modern culture has "changed comedy like what we used to make".
"I think we would probably talk ourselves out of most of it now," she said.
"It would be like, 'We won't have a good answer so let's not do that'.
"I think people do talk themselves out of stuff now because everything is sensitive."

Absolutely Fabulous originally ran between 1992 and 1996, before being revived by the BBC in 2001.
Jennifer added: "It's not a crime to have an opinion or say something."
Piers have meanwhile vowed to boycott IKEA after he brands the firm 'virtue-signalling twerps'.
IKEA became the latest retailer to pull ads from GB News – just 48 hours after its launch – and Piers promptly blasted the company on twitter.

But his near 8 million followers couldn't resist mocking his outrage – and vowed to visit the retailer even more.
One commented: "I will now support it even more !! Well done IKEA … boycott gammon news."
While another quipped: "Haha I'm sure they care."

But a third asked the most important question: "Would you boycott grated cheese on curry, Piers??"
In a statement, IKEA said: "IKEA has not knowingly advertised on GB News. We have safeguards in place to prevent our advertising from appearing on platforms that are not in line with our humanistic values and vision to side with the many people.
"We are in the process of investigating how this may have occurred to ensure it won’t happen again in future, and have suspended paid display advertising in the meantime."
