Supernanny star Jo Frost had the perfect response to Piers Morgan's dismissal of a new Pride train as "ridiculous".

As Morgan railed against the train online, she weighed in, saying:

It's an opportunity to take a train and promote the awareness and inclusion needed. 

Networks use bus stops, buses and billboards to promote, why not, I say, it's a great idea! 

Frost also pointed out that, since vehicles don't have sexualities, it's not a "gay train" but Pride-themed.

The Avanti West Coast train in question travelled from London to Manchester on Tuesday decorated with the LGBTQ+ pride flag as well as additional colours celebrating BAME LGBTQ+ pride.

It was also staffed entirely by LGBTQ+ people and featured Pride-related literature and facts during onboard announcements.

Morgan shared a video of the train with the caption "why?".

He then picked a fight with Avanti West Coast rail...

And started arguing with LGBTQ+ nightclub venue Vauxhall Tavern.

The backlash the train received from people like Morgan helps to illustrate why Frost's response is so on point.

Clearly, LGBTQ+ inclusion and representation is still desperately needed.

Take it from the Supernanny.
