Caitlyn Jenner Shuts Down A "Smug" Piers Morgan

Well this is sah awkies...

Caitlyn Jenner sat down with interviewer Piers Morgan for a Life Stories chat which, with absolutely no surprise, got a little awkward and fast.

The ITV special, which is due to air in the UK this time tomorrow, hit a blip when Morgan threw in a question about their body.

"There are obviously certain areas we know," he said.

The 68-year-old hit back at the interviewer, saying: "You made a comment there and that's why you would get in trouble, OK? You said, 'certain areas' - that, to a trans-person, is disrespectful.

"It's not funny. It's life. It's a very serious part of my life.

"I take that very seriously and so out of respect to myself and the community, it's not something that you joke about. This is serious stuff. People die over these issues. It's not a joke."

Morgan appeared quite smug at first, asking why it's not okay to make jokes about these things, but when Caitlyn responded that he was being 'disrespectful', the host responded with: "Point taken."

"There is a lot of pain in my life that I dealt with and it was not a joke and all the things I have done I take very seriously as it affects a lot of people," Caitlyn said.

Other topics within the interview of course covered the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
