Piers Morgan inundated with backlash after slamming Daniel Craigs Bond outfit

Piers Morgan has taken a savage swipe at Daniel Craig's suede pink jacket that he wore to the premiere of his new James Bond film No Time To Die, but fans are not happy with his remarks.

The Hollywood star rocked up to the red carpet event on Tuesday evening, wearing the colourful jacket along with a white shirt and a bow tie.

But former GMB presenter Piers didn't seem to like it one bit and compared his look to "an Austin Powers tribute act."

Taking to Twitter, Piers, 56, posted a picture of Daniel, 53, on the red carpet to his 8million Twitter followers and penned: "O dear O (7) dear.

"James Bond would never wear a garish pink suede dinner jacket. You’re supposed to be a steely-eyed assassin with exemplary sartorial taste, Mr Craig…. not an Austin Powers tribute act."

He then followed the tweet with a thumbs down emoji.

Responding to his rather harsh remarks, fans aired their thoughts on Piers' comments with several being unhappy with his comparison.

One fan penned: "That's Daniel Craig out of character. Not everybody shows up to stuff in character like Kane on the Weakest Link."

A third chimed in and commented: "Um, FYI, Mr Craig isn’t actually an steely-eyed assassin with exemplary sartorial taste. He’s an actor."

While a fourth commented: "You wrote a WHOLE book on people being 'woke' and offended by things and here you are outraged by what Daniel Craig wears. The irony."
