Scooter Braun brands Morgan a 'jackass' and 'hypocrite'
Scooter Braun – the manager of Justin Bieber, Kanye West and, more recently, Cruz Beckham – has been involved in an online spat with Piers Morgan over the latter youngster’s new charity Christmas single.
Yesterday, the 11-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham made his music debut with festive new song ‘If Everyday Was Christmas’, which hopes to raise money for charity Make Some Noise.
Morgan attacked the Beckhams on Good Morning Britain this morning, accusing them of “pimping out” their child. When accused on Twitter of “trolling an 11-year-old”, Morgan argued that he was only “trying to defend Cruz from his being pimped out by his fame-hungry parents”.
Cruz Beckham’s manager, Scooter Braun, soon responded to Morgan’s criticism, describing his client as “an 11 year old who wanted to make a song to help other kids.” He also called Morgan a “jackass” and a “hypocrite”. See in the Twitter back-and-forth below.

This morning, Morgan renewed the argument by tweeting that having “had time to reflect”, he now think that “it’s even more repulsive”. Braun appeared to sub-tweet Morgan by writing: “I can’t stand bullies”.
Other bids for the Christmas No.1 single include Terry Wogan, Cliff Richard, VAULTS and Inspiral Carpets in memory of late drummer Craig ‘Gilly’ Gill.
