Royal Family News: Meghan Markle to Receive no Royal Defense Despite Jeremy Clarkson Rant
Royal Family news reveals that Meghan Markle is still not going to receive any support via the Royal Family despite Jeremy Clarkson’s “violent misogynistic” rant against her. Read on and we’ll give you the low down.
Royal Family News: Palace Rallies Behind Queen Camilla – Not Markle
Royal Family news reveals that, according to Variety, Jeremy Clarkson isn’t going to miss a day of work at “Who Wants to be A Millionaire” in the wake of his rant against the Duchess of Sussex as the Royal Family won’t come to her defense – even now.
However, Glamour reports that the Palace is defending Camilla following their lunch together. Yes. You read it correctly. Amid a barrage of hatred directed at Meghan Markle, the monarchy has decided to circle the proverbial wagons around Camilla.
Jeremy Clarkson Spews Hate on a Cellular Level
Jeremy Clarkson recently penned a rather vile op-ed about how much he hates Meghan Markle. It was the type of piece you might expect to find in some of the seedier places on the internet, but it was instead printed in The Sun. The English broadcaster asked that his column be taken down after he realized that his foot had landed in his mouth.
Clarkson wrote in his column that he hated Markle “on a cellular level,” adding, “At night, I’m unable to sleep as I lie there, grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant ‘Shame!’ and throw lumps of excrement at her.”
Glamour writes that, despite being misogynistic and cruel, the op-ed had been poorly written and relatively pointless aside from spewing hatred. It is fairly concerning that editors would feel it deserved ink as the piece went far beyond simply expressing an opinion. However, it didn’t take long before Clarkson was informed of his blunder by the likes of even his own daughter and the article was quickly taken down (via The Sun).
Oops! Jeremy Clarkson Puts His Foot in It
In a Tweet confessing to his folly, Clarkson wrote, “Oh dear. I’ve rather put my foot in it. In a column I wrote about Meghan, I made a clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones, and this has gone down badly with a great many people. I’m horrified to have caused so much hurt and I shall be more careful in the future.”
British journalist and royal Family expert, Omid Scobie took to Twitter to write, “non-apology probably prompted by his agent. Follows over 6,000 (and counting) complaints received by @IpsoNews. I’m more interested in hearing from The Sun’s editor-in-chief and section editor who gave final sign off on the column (which was so much more than a GOT reference).
