CNN’s ex-host Piers Morgan has decided that facial hair is the answer to his woes. But what’s the consensus? Is it a vast improvement or a beauty disaster?

The peanut gallery is mixed on Piers’ new beard.

Bill Werde: Trim the cheeks so you have clean lines, bro.
Alec Baldwin: Here’s a better idea.. paper bag the whole head
Michael Vitale: Dude, what’re you 16 ?? You post a close up selfie ? Geez, what a douchebag SMH … Here’s a line I thought I’d never type,, I agree with Alec Baldwin on this one.
Wondertrash: The beard is great, he looks fine.
Britt Eckland: I like it!
Emily Gardner: You are looking so hot and sexy Piers! I love it!
Mwah! XX

The Mirror hesitates to call it a disaster. While it’s not Britney Spears shaving half her head, it is also a far cry from a vast improvement. Whatever this post-CNN bad boy phase is, let’s just hope it’s temporary.
