You know the only people mad are the Becky’s of the world, Prince Harry is dating suits actress Meghan Markle and he’s been trying to be private about this situation, but the media will not let them live..
The British royal sent a letter out to British press and social media trolls warning them to stop harassing Markle, who is Black, with their “outright racism.”
In a VERY rare statement, rom Kensington Palace, which confirms the pair’s relationship for the first time, said that “the past week has seen a line crossed” and accused the press and social media trolls of sexist and racial abuse. British papers have called Meghan “Straight Outta Compton” because she hails from inner city Los Angeles and have called her a “scandalous” choice for Harry because of her “visibly Black mother.”
“His girlfriend Meghan Markle has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public — the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments,” read the statement, which was posted to the palace Twitter account.
