Michael Grade, then chief executive of Channel 4, repeatedly intervened to demand edits to episodes of Brass Eye, and rescheduled some shows for sensitivity. This interference outraged Morris, who responded by inserting into one episode a subliminal message stating, "Grade is a cunt".

He also wrote to musician Paul Simon, claiming that Grade always considered Art Garfunkel the more talented of the duo.
