In case you haven’t heard, Forbes has officially named Kylie Jenner the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. But after Piers Morgan came at the makeup mogul for only being famous because of her sister Kim Kardashian, One Direction‘s Liam Payne slammed the TV host for being just plain mean.
That’s right, you guys. Once the former Britain’s Got Talent judge saw the news that the 21-year-old officially reached a 10-figure fortune, he hit back saying, “It’s not self made, it’s because her sister made a sex tape.”

Annoyed by the fact that Piers attributed all of Kylie’s success to something her sister did years ago, Liam clapped back at the 53-year-old TV presenter for being a huge bully in order to get attention.
The “Strip That Down” crooner responded by saying, “I’m sorry but piers are you crazy your only here cuz you talk s–t about everyone and make controversial outbursts about people to get attention … at least @KylieJenner has her own business she built herself why not congratulate someone for once instead of knocking people.” YAS, Liam!
Unfortunately, this only started a Twitter war between the two, in which Piers once again claimed that Kylie’s success was due to Kim. He also took a moment to call out the 25-year-old for his poor grammar.
“Hi Liam,” he wrote. “a) She didn’t ‘build herself’, she became rich & famous from her sister’s sex tape. b) It’s ‘you’re’.”
Don’t worry, though. The heartthrob hit back with an epic diss, calling Piers out for being, well, totally irrelevant.
“Sorry could you say it louder from the back of the line of irrelevant people please,” he wrote.
This isn’t the first time Liam has stood up for women who have been completely disrespected. After several women on his team were romantically linked to him in the press, Liam addressed the rumors in October 2018, calling them “demeaning.”
“My team is full of talented, smart professional women,” he wrote. “I find it wrong that they are reduced to being linked to me romantically in the press just for simply standing next to me. Isn’t it time we treat women with a bit more respect? … “So far the press have done this with every female member of my staff it’s demeaning some are in relationships and it complicates there work environment when they do this to them … I think it stops here.”
We’re so glad the “Bedroom Floor” singer continues to stand up for what’s right. Aren’t you?
