Morgan was left unimpressed after the US pop superstar performed Love Drought and Sandcastles at the 59th annual awards show on Sunday night.

Beyoncé – who last week revealed she is expecting twins – received huge cheers as she stormed the stage in a gold get-up which showcased her baby bump.

Morgan tweeted: “Didn't really ‘feel’ that Beyonce performance. Seemed heavier on the narcissism than the music. #GRAMMYs.”

He further fuelled the flame when he claimed that viewers felt the same as him but were too scared to speak out.

“Twitter lemmings now exploding with fury that I expressed an opinion about Beyonce's performance they all secretly agree with... #GRAMMYs,” he posted.

Morgan was slammed for ‘attacking a pregnant woman’ and branded a "garbage dump of a man" for his comments.

Another commented: "Meanwhile this dusty excuse for an irrelevant m*********** has now taken to attacking a pregnant woman for expressing her joy."

He later joked that Beyoncé’s “career high” was the day she met him.

Tweeting a picture of himself with the singer he wrote: “This may well have been Beyonce's career high, now I think about it....”
