Piers Morgan has unleashed a rant about iconic American toy Mr Potato Head, after news emerged that makers Hasbro are planning on giving the product a name change to make it gender neutral. The toy, which rose to fame alongside Mrs Potato Head in the Toy Story film franchise, will now be known only as “Potato Head”.

Piers shared the announcement in view of his 7.7 million Twitter followers and branded the move unimportant.

He began by retweeting the news and fuming: “FFS.”(sic)

The Good Morning Britain presenter then added in a separate tweet: “Imagine thinking in the middle of a global pandemic: ‘What’s really important is dropping the ‘Mr’ from Mr Potato Head & making him gender-neutral in case we upset a few wokies.’”

Piers went on to retweet American conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro, who penned: “Barbie must be renamed something more gender-neutral. This is imperative.”

One person argued: “It’s not about upsetting wokies (whatever that means).  It’s about breaking away from traditional gender norms, particularly when it comes to families.

“I don’t see what the issue is. It’s good that kids are being taught about these things and it’s more out in the open.”

A third fan commented: “That is quite possibly the most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a while. What is going on at the moment? We are living in a very stupid time.”

Mr Potato Head, which was first sold in 1952, is a potato-shaped toy that mimics the human face.

Users can change its features including the ears, eyes and mouth.

It is unclear at this point whether Mr Potato Head’s wife, Mrs Potato Head, will also become gender neutral.

The name change is set to take place this year, with the updated Potato Heads appearing on shelves and websites soon.

Mr Potato Head would often demand other characters not forget his title in the Toy Story films.

“That’s Mr Potato Head to you, you back-stabbing murderer,” the famous spud said to Woody when he said his name incorrectly.

His remark came after the cowboy (played by Tom Hanks) inadvertently knocked Buzz Lightyear out of a bedroom window.
