His controversial post

On Monday, Piers Morgan shared a picture of Daniel Craig wearing his baby in a carrier. Apparently, the TV host was so shocked by the image that he said, #emasculatedBond, basically implying that the actor was somehow less of a man for carrying his own child.

Many people, including fathers, were enraged by Morgan's tweet. They did not understand why Morgan would want to attack Craig, who has a new baby daughter with actress Rachel Weisz. The incident ignited the issue of stereotypes that often discourage fathers from being involved in raising their children because it somehow makes them less manly.

Morgan implied that Craig had no business wearing his child like that, in other words, it should be a woman's job.

An adorable response

Morgan's tweet offended fathers who came for the TV personality and made it very clear that they saw nothing unmanly about being an involved father. Actor Chris Evans was one of those who commented and also lashed out at Morgan, saying the tweet must have come from a place of insecurity.

Twitter dads were quite disturbed by Morgan's insinuation that carrying one's child is now seen as emasculating. In response, they shared pictures of themselves wearing their babies proudly as Craig did.

Morgan stands by his opinion

In a later tweet, Piers Morgan revealed that despite the backlash, he still stands by his opinion that babywearing for men is

emasculating, embarrassing & unnecessary.

He apparently did not think he said anything wrong even though this subsequent tweet got even more hate from many internet users. 

One has to wonder, is Morgan purposely trying to be offensive, or does he really believe that men shouldn't be carrying babies?
