Emily Ratajkowski responds to Piers Morgan's petty tweet with a massive third-degree burn

Emily Ratajkowski's latest photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar is about feminism, sexuality, and her journey as a woman. She happens to be naked in the photos, so naturally people have opinions on them. One such person is the king of opinions, Piers Morgan.

"Do you want me to buy you some clothes? You look freezing," Morgan tweeted at Ratajkowski.

The cycle of controversy, outrage, response, and outrage, is getting to be exhausting. It's difficult to understand the best way to move forward. Do we ignore Morgan's sexist comment and let him get away with it, thus denying him the press the way we would advise a child to deny a bully attention? Do we ask Ratajkowski or Harper's Bazaar to refrain from their own artistic and, yes, controversy-stirring vision because we know it'll simply stoke the media fires? However we move forward, there has to be a better way than this.
