(LOS ANGELES) — Late-night got downright awkward on Wednesday, when Piers Morgan and Chelsea Handler locked horns on her E! show.
Morgan was on to promote the second anniversary of his CNN primetime show, which comes on the heels of a petition to deport him from the U.S. (The White House declined to send him packing).
This exchange kicked things off:
Handler: “What are you looking at?”
Morgan: “Well, you’ve either had plastic surgery or makeup because you look really hot today.”
Handler replied, “You’re so obnoxious, you wonder why everybody hates you,” and went on to accuse Morgan of having “molester eyes.”
The snark-fest hit its peak when Morgan said he could help Handler be better at her job, and Handler shot back, “You can suck my a**.” Classy. Check out the full exchange here:
