Scooter Braun has challenged Piers Morgan to match whatever Cruz Beckham raises for charity from the sales of his new debut song ‘If Everyday Was Christmas’.
The ‘Good Morning Britain’ presenter has lashed out at the 11-year-old singer’s parents David and Victoria Beckham for pushing the youngster into fame by allowing him to drop his catchy Christmas carol on Wednesday (07.12.16) to raise cash for charity.
But, although the power couple are refusing to dignify the journalist’s harsh words with a response, Cruz’s manager has jumped to his defence and asked the former ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge to dig deep and double the money raised from the single.
Taking to his Twitter account, Scooter – who represents Justin Bieber – said: "He is an 11 year old who wanted to make a song to help other kids. Once again Piers shows why he is a jackass and why his show was cancelled … Some people in this world make a living out of finding the worst in every situation. It means they have a career..not class. Just a career
"@piersmorgan how about you match him dollar for dollar to the charity? Instead of criticizing step up and help these kids the way Cruz is …. @piersmorgan I will take that as a no…no u won’t support charity like an 11 year old will. But u can judge kids when u get paid on BGT?
"@piersmorgan please answer my question and stop dodging with bs. Will u match his donation to charity? Or continue to be a hypocrite?
"ALL Proceeds to charity. Good on you young man. Give back. Happy to support. (sic)"
He then concluded his rant at Piers by branding him a "bully" and encouraged him to take a leaf out of Cruz’s book by being "hard on himself" rather than "on others".
