Topless Extinction Rebellion protester sends cheeky message to Piers Morgan as he jokes she's 'promoting his book'

A topless Extinction Rebellion protester has sent a cheeky message to Piers Morgan as he joked she is promoting his new book.

Laura Amherst, 31, joined crowds outside Downing Street calling for climate change action last week.

The activist was pictured during a march, carrying a banner and the words "Wake Up" written across her chest, which is also the title of Morgan's 2020 book.

The ex-Good Morning Britain host spotted it and tweeted: "Great to see some unexpected publicity for my book at today’s Extinction Rebellion protest."

To which, Ms Amherst responded on Instagram: "Think we’re on a bit of a different track lad.

"Just ever so slightly…. @piersmorgan but I have a question, do you support extinction rebellion?"

Morgan has not replied back yet.

Ms Amherst who is a politics student at the Open University has become known for protesting naked but she had been tactically placing stickers covering only her nipples.

However last week she decided to get rid of the cover-ups for a demonstration, which happened just yards from the Prime Minister's official residence.

The activist, from Brighton, East Sussex, insists that going nude isn't for fame or money, and is simply to "draw attention to the climate crisis facing the planet".

Laura, who is vegan and drives a hybrid car said that her boyfriend who is also a member ofExtinction Rebellion is "very supportive" of her decision to bare all in public, as is her dad but noted that "it's got nothing to do with them because this is my body and I'm my own woman."
