‘They Are So Vindictive’: Megyn Calls Out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for Constantly Playing the Victim

In the latest example of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle never missing an opportunity to play the victim, the former actress spoke out about bullying at SXSW over the weekend.

Markle was on a panel called “Breaking Barriers, Shaping Narratives: How Women Lead On and Off the Screen” alongside Katie Couric, Brooke Shields, and Nancy Wang Yuen, when moderator Errin Haines asked about her personal experience with online “toxicity.”

She was once again complaining about how badly she’s been bullied and tried to play the pregnancy card, too. It’s called being a public figure, Meghan. I’ve shared this before, but let’s not forget about the time I had just gotten home from the hospital and was breastfeeding my newborn baby when Jon Stewart did an 11-minute vicious piece on me. It’s not nice, but it happens. 

You’re a public figure. You’re the one who wanted to marry into the Royal Family. This is why people like Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas didn’t want to do that. Who are we kidding? Meghan was dying to be a star, and she was dying for the coverage. She just didn’t want any of it to be negative. 

So, here she was again bitching about the coverage of her and how mean, in particular, women are at SXSW:

MARKLE: Yes, social media is an environment that has a lot of that [toxicity]… I keep my distance from it right now just for my own wellbeing. But the bulk of the bullying and abuse that I was experiencing in social media and online was when I was pregnant with Archie and with Lily and with a newborn with each of them. And you just think about that and to really wrap your head around why people would be so hateful. It’s not catty, it’s cruel…

And certainly when you’re pregnant or you have a newborn, as moms you know it’s such a tender and sacred time. And you can either succumb to it or nearly succumb to how painful it is. And maybe in some regards, that mammalian instinct just kicked in: ‘Do everything you can to protect your child’ and as a result protect yourself too…

What I find the most disturbing, frankly, especially as a supporter of women, is how much of the hate is women completely spewing that to other women. And I cannot make sense of that.

OMG. Why would people be “so hateful and so cruel”? Number one, it’s called reporting. You guys caused a lot of controversy by taking advantage of Queen Elizabeth. You were given every advantage by her and then were absolutely ungrateful. You started leaking to the media and ultimately left the British people but wanted them to keep funding your security, wanted to keep your titles, wanted all the benefits and none of the downsides. 

That is why people said mean things about you. It is not “hateful” or “cruel.” It is an opinion that you earned. 

Secondly, “as a supporter of women I really don’t understand how other women could critique me.” Really? Ask Kate Middleton how supportive Megan Markle is of her.

Meghan doesn’t care about bullying at all. She only wants to see herself discussed in the most laudatory and glowing terms. She gets very upset when you report negative things about her no matter how true they may be or whether it is your genuinely held opinion – like it is mine – that she is a selfish, catty brat and that not even living in a castle and marrying a prince could make her happy, which is why she had to destroy him and break up the Royal Family.

She’s still playing the victim while potentially trying to ruin careers behind the scenes. Is that bullying, Meghan? How about you, Harry? While he may want to claim all day long that he doesn’t care about journalists like Dan Wootton who broke stories like ‘Mexit,’ he mentioned him in his book. He called him a “sad little man.” 

If Harry doesn’t care at all about Dan Wootton or the reporting he does, then why would he elevate him to a mention by name in his memoir? He does care. And I wouldn’t be surprised at all to learn that he’s doing what he can to get back at him.
