The attack on Morgan follows his interview of the President last week, the first international one done by Trump. The cartoon in question was taken from The Mash Report, a satirical news roundup on BBC Two hosted by Nish Kumar.
In a series of tweets, Morgan accused the BBC of “double standards,” noting in a tweet that if the same cartoon depicted high-profile women, “there would be outrage.”
If the BBC broadcast an image like this after a female journalist interviewed @theresa_may – all hell would break loose & people would be fired. Gender equality shouldn't just apply to pay – should it? pic.twitter.com/9xNqGPjZl9
