The broadcaster addressed the incident on Twitter on Tuesday morning by retweeting a clip from the interview alongside the caption: "ICYMI: Last night, I tried to interview one of the militant trans activists involved in wearing balaclavas & terrorising women at the Emmeline Pankhurst statue in Manchester. It didn’t go well, but it was very insightful as to how vile, abusive & intolerant some of them are…"

For those who didn't catch the surprising moment, the interviewee, 'Jame,' was attending a demonstration in Manchester organised by the activist group Trans Rise Up, while appearing on Piers' show.

'Jame' wore a wig, sunglasses and face mask to conceal their identity, with the former daytime star beginning the interview by stating: "I have always supported trans rights to fairness and equality and I mean that sincerely."

The interviewee responded by saying: "That's [expletive], bro," to which Piers replied: "You can say '[expleitve], bro' and you're entitled to. It's an uncensored show and you've just proven it."

The pair then engaged in a heated debate before Piers went on to say: "I've explained my position, what is your problem with my position?"

'Jame' responded: "I don’t really know. I’m going to leave the interview, now. I kind of only came on here because I thought it would be kind of funny. But I wanted to say you're a [expletive]."

After apologising to viewers for his guest's profanity, Piers branded 'Jame' a "complete idiot," and concluded the interview. 

Piers Morgan: Uncensored airs on weeknights from Monday to Thursday at 8pm on TalkTV.
