TV presenter Piers Morgan is facing a furious backlash after questioning James Bond star Daniel Craig’s masculinity for wearing a baby carrier.

The Good Morning Britain host posted the mocking comments on Twitter along with an image showing Craig carrying his month-old daughter on his front “in what is often known as a papoose”, reports the BBC.

Captain America actor Chris Evans was quick to defend Craig, who is married to fellow actor Rachel Weisz.

Some also pointed out that Craig appeared more ready for his next Bond outing than Morgan had suggested.

Others noted that the papoose issue is hardly the most pressing of concerns facing the world.

But Morgan, who has four children, refused to back down on his claims that papooses are “ridiculous instruments of emasculation”.

The outspoken journalist defended his opinion on the social media platform and even called on US President Donald Trump to share his thoughts on the baby carrier, writing: “Everyone else seems to be getting very worked up about them. I don’t really have you down as a papoose kinda guy, but then you’re full of surprises.”

Uncharacteristically, Trump did not respond.
