Piers Morgan had a heated row with former L'Oreal transgender model Munroe Bergdorf on Good Morning Britain today after she claimed “all white people” are racist.

Bergdorf was sacked as a model for L'Oreal last week after suggesting on Facebook that all white people are racist.

During the interview, presenter Susanna Reid had asked Bergdorf whether she really thought all white people are racist. The interviewee replied: "I don't think that all white people are by nature racist, from conception to birth I think that we are all the same, but we need to speak about how we're socialised as people and my post was based on socialisation and racism as a structure."

When Morgan then pressed her why she had claimed that all white people are racist, she responded: "Socialisation has placed all white people in a certain privilege, that means if you are not dismantling racism, or helping to dismantle racism, you are part of the problem, because that makes you complicit."

The GMB presenter hit back by saying "you are calling straight, white guys like me a series of offensive stereotypical labels which I find very offensive."

The argument continued with the pair even touching on food banks and whether white people had more privilege there, with the model eventually saying that she felt like she was banging her head against a wall.

Morgan argued "what you’re up against is someone challenging you on your public statements - which you’ve managed to turn into a massive, great story of your poor victimhood."

He added: "When you clarify and say all straight, white guys are basically all sexist homophobes, and racially violent, I, as a straight white guy, who is not remotely racist, get very offended by that."
