'Piers Morgan has slammed a gay activist for trying to get him fired because he doesn't agree with the Good Morning Britain presenter's comments about gender identity in a furious TV debate.
The TV host was faced with a petition calling for him to be fired after claiming he identifies as a 'two-spirit penguin'.
His comments slamming a BBC film that claims there are 100 different genders further incensed members of the LGBT community.
Today gay activist Ben Butterworth appeared on the programme alongside transgender broadcaster India Willoughby to debate the petition.
But in a furious outburst, Piers fumed Mr Butterworth was not open to debate and his 'cancel culture' sees people like him 'no-platformed' or sacked from their jobs.
He said: 'Your response to a good debate is to cancel people and to try to get them fired.
'The problem with liberal people today is they are so illiberal they are only interested in making people think like them and agree with them. It's one rule for you and another for everyone else.
'You can identify with 100 different genders but as soon as I identify as a two-spirit penguin, you go nuts.'
Mr Butterworth claimed Piers' comments on transgender 'make a mockery of a vulnerable minority'.
He told the programme: 'The way you talk about non-binary and trans people is you mock them, you use them as a form of entertainment.
'Being a penguin isn't a gender, it's not on the gender spectrum.
'There will be people watching this programme, who aren't sure of their identity, who are vulnerable, who are transgender or non-binary and they're going to hear you mocking them.
'I watched GMTV religiously as a child and I was gay. If I'd have seen that it would have been very dangerous.'
But Piers argued he believes the idea of 100 genders is a mockery of those who have gone through the transition process.'
