Good Morning Britain fans slam ‘appalling’ Ed Balls over ‘car crash’ interview

GMB guest asks Ed Balls to let her explain reasoning

On Monday’s instalment of Good Morning Britain, the ITV hosts were speaking to Kathleen Stock who’s exploring the question “What is a woman?” in a new documentary this week.

The Channel 4 special, titled Gender Wars, will delve into the meaning of sex and gender and feature the professor who has caused controversy in the past with her views on the subject.

Having quit her role at the University of Sussex two years ago after accusations of transphobia, Good Morning Britain’s Ed Balls decided to question her opinions.

He questioned: “Is it not possible, in your view, for somebody who was a man, to become as they would describe it, a woman?”

Kathleen replied: “No, you can’t change sex. It’s not biologically possible. Womanhood, I would say is entirely predicated on sex, there’s no other good way of doing it-”

Interrupting, Ed commented: “A lot of people would say that’s an extreme view.”

Realising the host was talking over her, Kathleen added: “Well if you’d let me explain my reasoning.”

As the professor tried to articulate her opinions on the topic, Ed continued to speak over her answers which didn’t go unnoticed by viewers.

It wasn’t long before people took to Twitter to slam Ed for how he conducted the interview with many slamming his constant interruptions.

@Richard68696305 said: “Ed Balls car crash interview ..gets schooled by feminist…the blokes a fool, even Charlotte looked embarrassed.”

 @NickageHB added: “Surely the purpose of interviewing people is to question, then let them answer? Cutting them off mid-sentence is not advantageous. Pretty much basics.”

@DanaPouncey commented: “Ed being overly aggressive in this #GMB.”

@Mrjoeblack said: “Balls talking over people again, always does this.”

@REBECCA70114572 fumed: “For crying out loud, let the woman speak!!!”

@Time_Flies_0 tweeted: “Ed Balls was appalling when interviewing Kathleen Stock.Ask a question. Let people answer!”

During the interview, Kathleen made it clear she supports transgender people being protected by law and has no ambition to argue against the Equality or Gender Recognition Act.

However, she explained to hosts Ed and Charlotte Hawkins: “I think we need words to describe the differences between males and females because they matter socially across all sorts of domains.”

Good Morning Britain continues weekdays on ITV from 6am.
