Piers Morgan Mocked By Bubba Watson: I Gave You The Interview Because 'You Were A Pr--k' On 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

Piers Morgan had a big night on Tuesday when the CNN host interviewed Masters Champion Bubba Watson in his first major television appearance.

Morgan asked Watson why he decided to go on his CNN show for his first television interview. Watson bluntly stated that Morgan was "a pr--k" while a judge on "America's Got Talent." He continued, "So I wanted to come here and make fun of you just like you make fun of everybody else."

Morgan laughed and said he heard that was the reason. "You just like me being a pr--k?" Morgan asked. "Yeah," Watson simply said. "I don't know how we got you here," Morgan said. "I'll take it."

Though Watson's words were bleeped out when he said "pr--k," Morgan tweeted about the moment before the interview aired on CNN. "So @bubbawatson just explained why he gave me the big exclusive interview: 'Because I loved what a prick you were on America's Got Talent'," Morgan wrote.
