CNN host Piers Morgan landed in a Twitter war with One Direction and their fans last week after recommending David Beckham retire from soccer. One Direction fans are apparently also fans of the handsome soccer star.
Soon enough, the boy band's followers had the phrase “Piers Morgan is smelly” trending worldwide. The TV personality told “Extra’s” Mario Lopez, “Nobody warned me that there are five of them and each of them has 7 or 8 million followers on Twitter. They have this army of mad fans called Directioners.”
He added, “Suddenly I have 35 million girls tweeting me and they’re all doing the same thing, “Piers Morgan is smelly”… I’ve got my own group going now called the Morganers.”
