Ewan McGregor was all set for an appearance on ‘Good Morning Britain’ today to promote new movie ‘T2: Trainspotting’, but looks to have cancelled it at the last minute when he discovered Piers Morgan is the show’s host.
Taking to Twitter, he said:

Morgan, who has frequently shown his support for Donald Trump, caused controversy after tweeting: “I’m planning a ‘Men’s March’ to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists. Who’s with me?”

He then hit back at McGregor’s tweet:
Sorry to hear that @mcgregor_ewan – you should be big enough to allow people different political opinions. You're just an actor after all.
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 24, 2017
Some of McGregor’s followers appeared to agree with the move.

@mcgregor_ewan top man! Good to see people stand up to this hateful swing to the far right in the US and UK.
