Limmy has celebrated after Piers Morgan called him a “disgusting piece of s***” on Twitter.
The Scots comedian, renowned for his social media wind-ups, targeted Morgan after his row with MSP Ross Greer over Winston Churchill.
The Green party member labelled Churchill a “white supremacist mass murderer” on social media, prompting the Good Morning Britain host to call him a “thick ginger turd”.
Limmy, real known Brian Limond, retweeted a video of the pair debating on Good Morning Britain.
And he wrote: “’Everybody celebrates Sir Winston Churchill’. Retweet this to let @GMB and @piersmorgan know that you think Churchill was a scumbag c***.”
Morgan responded: “Churchill fought for the very freedom that allows you to now abuse him like this.
“That freedom also allows me to call you a disgusting piece of s***.”
Limmy, pleased that Morgan had taken the bait, posted: “BOOM”.
