Emily Giffin on her Duchess Meghan hatred: ‘I need to be more careful’

Emily Giffin

Last month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a video to Save the Children, where Harry filmed Meghan reading Duck Rabbit to Archie. The video worked on many levels – it helped raise awareness for a Save the Children UK campaign, it helped raise money for Save the Children, it was a cute moment to see Archie around his first birthday, and it showed us that the Sussexes are completely fine and unbothered. All of that – especially the unbothered part – annoyed the Sussex haters to no end. That bitter group threw salty hate on Archie and Meghan over everything involving that video.

The #1 Pillar of Salt was a woman named Emily Giffin. She’s a popular author, and I guess her most famous book was Something Borrowed, which was made into a Kate Hudson movie. Emily apparently had a long history of posting nasty stuff about the Sussexes on her social media, but her unhinged hatred of the Save the Children video was next-level. After a day of being called out for her awfulness, Emily offered a bulls–t apology and tried to stay quiet. But now she’s promoting her new book, and so she felt obligated to say words:

Best-selling author Emily Giffin is apologizing for recent negative comments she made about Meghan Markle. The “Something Borrowed” author frequently posts about the British royal family on her social media. When Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, released a video last month for her son Archie’s first birthday, Giffin posted a screenshot of a text message exchange where she commented that Markle seemed “unmaternal,” calling the video “uncomfortable to watch,” adding, “what a joke.”

The posts quickly received backlash from people calling the post distasteful, while others called the remarks racist. Markle is biracial. The author said in a later Instagram post that her comments were not racist, and she was thrilled when a biracial American woman had married into the royal family.

“I need to be more careful about the impact of my words,” Giffin told The Associated Press in a recent interview. “Being unfiltered, which is what I’ve chosen to be and the person I am in real life, and the person that you see on social media, definitely means that I’m going to make mistakes, too.”

“It’s one thing to have legitimate criticism about someone,” she said, but her comments “were not legitimate,” adding “they were just mean. … I’m going to do better.”

Giffin’s “The Lies that Bind” is her 10th novel. Released June 2, it’s about a journalist named Cecily who re-evaluates her life choices and relationships in the wake of 9/11.

Wow, 9/11 grief-p0rn AND another half-assed non-apology? We’re good, thanks. Obviously, she doesn’t mean any of her apologies and she’s just trying to promote her book without the Sussex Squad descending en masse at every book signing just to heckle her. She doesn’t like Meghan, and that’s fine. She wants to trash Meghan online, and that’s fine too. That’s her right. She shouldn’t have to apologize for unreasonably hating a woman. What is not cool is that she thinks a couple of half-assed non-apologies will make everything blow over. She expects her privilege and blondness to pull her through, like it always does. She wants to be free from the consequences of her bitchiness and hatred. And sorry, that’s not her right.

    Bitch has a book to sell, of course she is “remorseful”. Her agent told her so.

    • Olenna says:

      Exactly. It’s a meaningless gesture because she meant what she said about Meghan. She believes Meghan doesn’t deserve to be with whom and where she is because she is a WOC. A trifling public apology isn’t enough. It only satisfies her publisher and regular readership. She needs to believe Meghan is on the same level as she is and she needs to apologize directly to Meghan.

    • jess says:

      imma need everyone to one star rate that book when it finally comes out. Before you say its petty, is not what she did to Meghan petty and racist? These Karens need to be taught a lesson, and the best way to do it is to hurt their pockets.

      • goofpuff says:

        I’m totally onboard with that. Without consequences, these asshats will say anything to make a buck whether that be to trash Meghan or raise her up. Hit them where they really care about.

      • Louise says:

        I’m in. Using my Karen for Good.

      • Clsarah says:

        It’s not petty – she writes one-star books anyway. I have read a few of them…after finishing the uncomfortable and poorly written one about the old football coach who falls in love with his daughters best friend I swore off ever reading her again…yuck.

      • lucy2 says:

        I was just thinking “I can’t wait to read the reviews of this!” People are going to drag her, deservedly.

        Also, I really hate when people use the “I’m unfiltered” nonsense as if it’s a badge of honor. No. You’re just an asshole who doesn’t care about other people or their feelings.

      • lizardqueen says:

        I tried to do that to the books of hers on Amazon after she made her crappy comments but they locked the reviews. Makes me wonder if they’ll make it so only Amazon verified purchasers will be able to review her new book 🙄

      • C-Shell says:

        I won’t buy, but if you can’t leave a review, you can down vote the reviews that ARE there by saying they’re not “helpful.”

        ETA – this does affect the Amazon algorithm.

      • Harper says:

        Her reviews are locked on Amazon unless you are a verified buyer but you can try leaving a rating/review at Goodreads.

      • Faye G says:

        I’ll do it!

      • Charfromdarock says:

        It may be petty but I have her a 1 star review on Goodreads.

        Then, I liked every 1 star review other people gave her.

      • Grant says:

        Her books suck anyway! I tried to read one one summer (only Judy can judge me!) and I legit couldn’t finish. Blech.

      • Kkat says:

        You can get the book, write the review and then return the book :) that way you get around the verified buyer and locked reviews

  2. Jen says:

    I haven’t read any of her books since her husband attacked (with her egging on) negative reviewers on Amazon. All of her books seem to feature horrible people as the “heroes” so I think she really thinks horrible people are great.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/culture/archive/2012/08/things-get-mean-when-everyones-critic/324201/

    • Cj says:

      Betcha a billionaire’s private island she doesn’t think they’re horrible and they’re all people she would like to be/knows.

    • Ginger says:

      As an avid book reader this bothers me. To go after people because they didn’t like your book is awful. Not everyone has to like your book. It shows what kind of people they are.

      • Jaxonmeh says:

        @Ginger – edited – apologies I thought you were going after these commenters. I realized I was wrong after I hit save and can’t seem to delete. I can’t wait to post my review of this book.

    • Va Va Kaboom says:

      I remember reading “Something Borrowed” and wondering what kind of sh@t person would create all those characters. IIRC there wasn’t a redeeming quality amongst the whole lot of them. I think she may have been going for “realism” or “anti-hero” but frankly fell very very short of that goal. It was all so catty and lacked even an ounce of self-awareness or real character growth. I’ve never read anything by her since. And her behavior toward Meghan has only convinced me my opinion of her was correct.

      • Becks1 says:

        I’ve read a few of her books. I liked Something Borrowed at the time- Darcy HAD to be a total bitch, it was the only way to “excuse” the cheating, to make it seem like Dex was always supposed to be with Rachel and Darcy “stole” him – but as time has gone on and I look back its like, wow, that was a doozy.

        Where We Belong is about a adopted daughter looking for her birth mother and I cried a lot during that, because I had a 6 month old. I don’t remember there being anyone blatantly awful in that but I could be misremembering.

        the other few books of hers I have read – I like each one less and less. It really is like she thinks she needs awful people to drive the plot, and maybe she does because she’s not that good a writer.

    • Amelie says:

      You’re not missing much. I read one of her books a long time ago, I can’t even remember which one. I just remember thinking it was pretty terrible and was annoyed at the friend who recommended it to me. And I vowed never to read any of her books ever again. Think along the lines of Confessions of A Shopaholic but even more vapid and unfunny. Her writing is juvenile and very basic. There is nothing remarkable about any of her books.

  3. Chica1971 says:

    Translation.. I have nothing to apologize for I only needed to say it better. Won’t be buying her books anymore. Did she pivot to children’s books to avoid adults who may not buy?

    • Meghan says:

      This book was on my list to buy as soon as it came out, but it quickly got crossed off after this BS. She can take her racist self somewhere else. Her books were getting repetitive so it’s not a huge loss for me, but will make a teeny impact on her sales.

  4. Becks1 says:

    She just could have said “my comments were mean and I’m sorry” and left it at that. But instead she went on a tirade about legitimate criticism and how we should be able to criticize and then talked about how much she loves the Queen and how the queen is her favorite person in the world and she sounded….weird. Like it was unhealthy.

    Anyway, shes been posting all this stuff about BLM and unconscious bias and she posted a stack of books she was reading to “help her” and some people called her out for the MM comments and she was like “well they weren’t racist, just unkind.”

    and yes, they were unkind, but it was an unkindness rooted in racism. and until she sees that, all her BS apologies mean nothing.

    • Nana says:

      There’s a great post doing the rounds, 7 circles of whiteness… developed by Alishia McCullough; Giffen would do well to have a little read and check which one fits her best…
      I can’t work out if she’s Circle 3: The Oblivious Instigators or Circle 5: The Passive Aggressive Oppressor….

    • Nic919 says:

      Her words are basically “I need to be more careful and make my racism less obvious”. She’s not sorry and should be ignored forever. She has nothing of value to say.

    • Ginger says:

      She thinks her comments weren’t racist because she didn’t call Meghan a racial slur but they were still racist. This women is unhinged.

      People are not buying her “apology”

  5. JJ McClay says:

    I hate when people say they’re “unfiltered” or “honest” as an excuse for spouting bullsh!t (or in this case, racism). I have a friend who’ll tell you that you look fat in your jeans, or that she hates your new apartment (without being asked for comment, by the way) and takes pride in the fact that she’s “brutally honest”. No Becky, you’re just hateful.

    Same here with Emily. I really hope her new book flops mega-style.

    • Nana says:

      Funny how these unfiltered people are usually those colleagues or other people in your life who melt down at the slightest bit of criticism directed to them. They can give it but they can’t take it.

      • goofpuff says:

        Totally agree. They want to be unfiltered but what you to filter your criticism. They’re all hypocritical racists.

    • OriginalLara says:

      Came here to say the same. This pat on one’s own back for being ‘unfiltered’ and ‘just saying it as I see it’ is a lame arse excuse for being an actual arse.

    • Case says:

      I used to have a “friend” like that. I remember when I told her I was choosing to commute to college rather than stay on campus (for health-related issues). She told me she was so disappointed in me, because that meant I’d never go anywhere or see anything other than the town I lived in. When I said that was a mean thing to say, she was like “I’m just telling the truth.”

      Yeah, we’re not friends anymore. Anyone who is rude or hurtful and tries to pass it off as just being “real” or whatever is full of nonsense.

    • Frida_K says:

      Has anyone in your circle ever thought to smile and say to Becky things like:

      “I didn’t ask you what you thought of my apartment; I don’t care what you think of my living space, and since we’re being brutally honest here, I honestly think you are a mean-mouthed bitch. Be as that may, you do you. However, if you ever want to come into my home again, you need to show me some respect while you’re here. I’ll ask for your opinion if I want it. If I don’t ask, take that as a sign.”

      or to throw her off by reflecting what she says back to her and being silent, such as:

      “You think I look fat in my jeans.” Pause, stares at her with no expression for 20 seconds. “You’re brutally honest.” Pause, stares at her with no expression for 20 seconds. “There are a lot worse things in this world than looking fat in one’s jeans.” Stop talking and just look at her with no expression on your face and cold eyes, reacting not at all to any bs that she starts gabbling.

      Seriously, turn it right back on her. She sounds like a bully and you know that bully are the first to crumble when they get any push-back.

      • Doodle says:

        One thing I’ve taken to saying is, “wow, that’s a jack ass thing to say. I bet you’re really embarrassed.” They either apologize or say no. If they say no, then my next thing is “well, you should be.” There’s always an uncomfortable pause but they are usually a lot nicer or the friendship fades. Either way I don’t have to deal with their crap anymore.

      • Sandy says:

        This response is excellent, CHEFS KISS!!!

      • deering24 says:

        LOL!! You could also go the Seth-Gecko-in-FROM-DUSK-TILL-DAWN route: “That’s a matter of opinion, and I don’t give a fuck about yours.” :)

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Curious, genuinely- why do you still call this person a friend? I’d have no time for someone that negative.

    • lucy2 says:

      I should have scrolled further, I just posted similar above. People use that as an excuse to be cruel and nasty, and then shrug it off with “unfiltered”. It’s garbage.
      I know a few people like that, 2 in particular who are almost boastful in that they “speak their mind and don’t care what people think” and then they later wonder why all their friendships fall apart. Duh.

    • Lee13 says:

      Agreed. I really don’t even understand why anyone thinks being “unfiltered” or “brutally honest” is a positive trait? It just feels like a way of saying “I am proud of my lack of empathy and don’t care about how my words/actions impact other people”.

  6. Noki says:

    I cant stand when people say ‘ i need to be more careful’ or ‘ i need to watch what i say publicly’ either be a better and decent human being or just be the ass that you want.

    • Becks1 says:

      And also, for her – it wasn’t just one comment. She’s been “criticizing” Meghan for, what, two years now? It wasn’t a one-off. She has full on text conversations with several people in her life about how awful Meghan is and then thinks those convos are so great she POSTS THEM TO HER IG STORIES.

      She’s awful.

    • Noodle says:

      @noki, this is usually teemed with a narcissism that everything they say is worth public statements. She went out of her way to broadcast those thoughts about Meghan. She posted screenshots of a personal conversation with a friend, for goodness sakes. I’m all about carefully considering words and all, but that needs to come with a “Is this worth public consumption? Am I adding value to the conversation and not just stroking my own ego with these words?” awareness.

    • Lee13 says:

      Yes, completely. She is saying “I should try not to shoot myself in the foot economically by broadcasting my hateful, racist opinions” but at no point is she saying she will make any effort whatsoever to reflect on her thoughts/opinions or not make them privately. She is saying that she wants to learn and grow in her public relations abilities, not as a human being.

    • Harper says:

      It’s probably what her agent told her. “You need to be more careful. Your sales are not what we expected and the publishing company is pulling your marketing budget and who knows if you’ll get another contract.”

  7. lemon8 says:

    I finally looked at her IG. It’s one thing to have an opinion and another to just be an a**hole. She’s the latter.

  8. L84Tea says:

    Yeah, no.

  9. Nev says:

    we’re good, thanks.
    you could not have said it better.

    SIT DOWN TRICK.
    I don’t know her.

  10. Britt says:

    Yeah, just like Piers Morgan, Elizabeth Holmes and all these reporters and journalists coming to the realization that their treatment of Meghan was bad, lol. When people show you who they are, believe them. I’m not buying any of this because when people called them out before, they doubled down and continued. But since it’s on trend now and pockets are taking a hit, now it’s we’re sorry. Tatler and people praising Meghan’s speech are phony as well because if this movement didn’t happen and the fact that Harry is taking their butts to court and leakers are being called out, they would still continue their harassment. But now it’s suddenly I’m sorry and praises. Bye 👋

    • Molly says:

      It was a sport for awhile. I’ve never seen so many people in the mainstream media rush to the worst kind of internet conspiracy theories and be openly gleefully cruel to a woman who fits all of white society’s constraints for being “respectable” except for being biracial in a formerly all white space. It was racism across the board which is why people like Gary Janetti are now silent.

  11. S808 says:

    Her and Elizabeth Holmes can fuck off. They’re only apologizing because getting caught being racist is likely to get you fired/career ending right now and both have books to sell.

    • jess says:

      elizabeth holmes said something racist?

      • S808 says:

        She’s been passive aggressively racist to Meghan for years. She recently “apologized” and I don’t buy it just like I don’t buy this “apology”.

    • L84Tea says:

      Elizabeth Holmes, the Theranos woman???

      • Ruby_Woo says:

        Lol, no. A reporter.

        She wrote very inciteful commments, like why did Meghan have to carry a binder with her own hands when she came out of a plane? Really important stuff.

      • Becks1 says:

        And for Elizabeth Holmes and Janetti – its not just what they say. It’s that people think they have a license to go into their IG comments and just rant and rave about Meghan etc – their comments are full of some of the nastiest most racist things about Meghan – so whatever the “intentions” were, satire or humor or whatever, they created a breeding ground for hate and abuse aimed at Meghan and frankly E. Holmes should be ashamed it took her so long to realize it, if she really was trying to be “equal” in her comments (which she wasn’t.)

        Janettii is just a racist ass.

      • Grant says:

        OMG – I thought Elizabeth Holmes, Theranos woman too at first.

    • girl_ninja says:

      Yup. Elizabeth not Theranos Holmes has talked a lot of shit about Duchess Meghan.

      Triflin-*ss, hattin-*ss cows.

  12. Maya Memsaab says:

    Translation: ‘I need to get better at hiding my blatant racism and think of better dog whistles, so I can claim this is legitimate ‘criticism’ and not the thinly-veiled bigotry and jealousy that it actually is’.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      “…and think of better dog whistles, so I can claim this is legitimate ‘criticism’ and not the thinly-veiled bigotry and jealousy that it actually is’.” Basically. She’s trying to figure out how to make her misogynoir harder for people to detect and criticize.

  13. Chaine says:

    So she is basically saying “I need to be more careful about cloaking my racism.” Yuck.

  14. Melissai says:

    Author says I have to be more careful with my words. Public says I have to be more careful with my money and not buy any of your books.

    • Mellie says:

      Exactly! I had no idea she was this way and, unfortunately, I have read several of her books…fortunately, I have bought them at half-price books so she didn’t get all my money :) BUT…I won’t be buying them any longer, lesson learned, I will do my research from now on.

    • lucy2 says:

      I would love for everyone to respond to her that way!

  15. GuestWho says:

    “Being unfiltered, which is what I’ve chosen to be and the person I am in real life, and the person that you see on social media, definitely means that I’m going to make mistakes, too.”

    Translated: I’m an unrepentant a-hole who can’t keep my mouth shut when I should.

  16. jaylee says:

    Her books are garbage, her non apology is garbage & her personality is garbage. I’ve added her to my top 5 list of people I want to smack. Tomi Lahren will always hold the top spot but if Emily keeps opening her mouth she might move up a spot or two.

  17. Sarah says:

    Yeah you need to be more careful, your racism is showing and you’d better tuck that back in.

  18. MsIam says:

    What a douche. No Emily, we see you. And the internet never forgets.

  19. February Pisces says:

    Didn’t she just the other day post on James middletons BLM post saying how much she admires his parents? Same parents who encouraged their daughters to chase after rich men with titles and to never get a job?

    The hatred is still the same and she isn’t denying that. Women like her hate Meghan but love the likes of kate, because Kate is dull, boring, no personality and doesn’t have any sex appeal, because that’s probably how she feels about herself. The fact that a prince chose a wife who was the antithesis of the likes of her or Kate, makes her want to punish meghan. She, like so many women are determined for the marriage to fail, so girls like Meghan, who are attractive, smart, charismatic etc can fail, and women like her and Kate can come out on top. Add that Meghan is biracial and this Emily woman is triple mad.

    I think the last time she came up, we mentioned how women like her love to imagine harry being in love with Kate, only because if he fancied Kate, they think he would probably fancy them too.

    The thing is even if harry and Meghan ever do break up, he’s gonna end up with another ridiculously beautiful woman who is also smart, charismatic and hard working. Women like Emily or Kate would be at the absolute bottom of Harry’s list.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      All of this. The point you made on that other Emily Griffin post is so true.

    • kellebelle says:

      Well said. Word is that Carole Middleton wanted Harry for Pippa. Not his type at all. Yikes.

    • Sunday says:

      You nailed it, February Pisces. She and women like her like Kate because they can compete with her. They can praise her and fawn over her, all while smugly reveling in their perceived superiority over her.

      With Meghan, they are so threatened because they can’t compete with her, and it infuriates them that a biracial woman blows them (and Kate, their mascot) out of the water without even trying. She is what they pretend to be, and they know it, and they hate it.

      The kicker is, Meghan doesn’t believe in competition amongst women and won’t sink to their level and get in the mud with them, and it makes them even more infuriated.

    • Nic919 says:

      Carole Middleton essentially treated her daughters like chattel in order to gain access to a more prestigious social class. Her parenting skills should be thoroughly condemned (Mike too for being silent) and when we wonder why Kate still has no self confidence or adulting skills at 38 we can point in part to her mother who thought that grooming her to be acquired by a prince was a worthy goal.

    • February Pisces says:

      Someone posted on twitter a list of names that signed a petition for harry and Meghan to stop using ‘Sussex royal’ and one on the names is a C. Middleton. It’s on gov.uk website. It’s a either a strange coincidence, or carol kardashian is literally signing petitions against harry and Meghan.

      Ma Middleton was desperate to make Pippa and harry a thing, even leaking fake stories to the press just to up Pippa’s stock when she was getting rejected left right and centre. He got so mad he publically issued a denial. The ultimate rejection for Pippa.

      I remember the middletons put something out there that they thought harry was a little rough and I’ll mannered for them. Lol, they do not handle rejection well. It must kill them to see how head over heels harry is for Meghan.

  20. C-Shell says:

    I’d like to smack her smug face into next year. I’ve never bought/read her books and never will now that the past few weeks discussion has hashed out how thin and hateful they are. It’s marvelous seeing her get dragged on social media all over again.

  21. HK9 says:

    She just wants to be more careful? Not less racist and a better human being? I’m beginning to notice something about these types of women-they live in the disillusion that what they’re doing is ok and their racist, classless, soul sucking existence is something to aspire to. It’s not.

  22. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    People like her have no decency. In public or private.

  23. A Guest says:

    Her books are terrible. She’s terrible, her spouse is terrible. The end.

  24. Case says:

    The things she said were downright mean and vile and she has a history of being unhinged when it comes to Meghan. She needs to just stop talking.

  25. Valiantly Varnished says:

    ”I have to be more careful about my words” Meaning she needs to be racist in PRIVATE and not on social media.

  26. Florence says:

    You need to be *less racist, Panda Eyes.

  27. Peanutbuttr says:

    The only book I read of hers was the one where the main character was adamantly against having children and ends up divorcing her husband because he goes from childfree to suddenly wanting children.

    I won’t spoil it for anyone who actually wants to read it but it was your typical faux liberal urban white woman preaching where the author insists it’s about empowered choices when in reality it’s all about submitting to a basic yuppie lifestyle.

  28. manda says:

    I followed her insta for years and had noticed her hate on for a while before the video. The thing is, other people that followed her told her that her comments were sort of randomly and vehemently strong BEFORE she fruck out over the video. And she, and her weird looking kids (that was probably unnecessary on my part, but it’s out there now), would clap back about “my page I can say what I want, phhththhpphththth” sort of BS. My whole thing about it has always been, why soooo negative? It’s bad for your soul. If you don’t like something or someone, then don’t deal with that or them

  29. Cosmo says:

    This Karen just wants to sell books. If you are that full of hate towards someone you don’t know and make those statements on social media then you are showing your true self. No fake apology will change that. She should have thought of that knowing she would have to promote her crappy book

  30. yinyang says:

    You need to walk off the face of the earth. Glad these entitled WW are being called out, they’ve been whining about in their priviledge too long.

  31. MissF says:

    She’s clearly a Keen fan. Copying the panda eye makeup and everything.

  32. Ruby_Woo says:

    Instead worrying about her filter, she needs to worry about being offended at what complete strangers name their kid.

  33. Ninap says:

    What a weirdo – I lije gossip just as much as the next person but I wouldn’t screenshot me saying dumb shit about a stranger and then publicize it- that’s a weird level of hatred for Markle.

  34. Marigold says:

    I didn’t read the book but saw the movie. It was very bitter.

    “The Lies that Bind” – the name of her book.

    Bind your ass to your racist lying self, I’m not buying what you’re selling, including this stupid book.

  37. anon says:

    I’ve never bought, nor have I ever read one of Karen Giffin’s Dollar Tree books. I mean, what’s the point?

    What is the point of her low rent Karen canon, except to push white privilege narratives around archaic notions about courtship and putting a ring on it?

    Also, she’s so tactically blonde (tactically blonde: the state of changing one’s hair color to be more acceptably white) that I really wouldn’t recognize her on the street. She looks like Kelly Conway’s sister-wife.

    “I need to be more careful about the impact of my words.”

    Translation: “It’s not cool to be so openly racist anymore so I’ll shut up.” For now, anyway.

    “Something Borrowed” has some of the most repulsively unlikeable characters ever put on film, so color me not surprised the author is such a twatwaffle.

    So, what she’s learned from her experience is, “I’ll need to be a bit quieter with my racism”. Cool.

    Ahh I have a few things to say about this Karen. I didn’t unfollow her just to see how she reacted to the fallout although I DID cancel my preorder of her new book and will never read a book of hers again.
    1- she’s been posting text convos with an ex and pointing out that he’s black. I’m fairly certain she’s pulling the well I have a black friend so I’m nit racist card. Which we all know is a terrible micro aggression. This is on her regular feed not stories so it is saved.

    2- she actually posted someone asking her how sales were and she said something along the line of down but it’s because of covid. That’s not an exact quote but it was something very similar. (This was on stories so it’s gone)

    Damn. How badly _is_ her book doing?

    Trash. The nerve, to call a stranger reading to her child “unmaternal”. And yes, it is racist. This racist nitpicking and second guessing of Meghan’s motivations, calling everything Meghan does “inappropriate” or unprecedented, is all a subconscious failure to see her as fully human and deserving of the same things as her white counterparts, as well as raising the bar for her so she had to be 10x better for half the praise. They deny her role as a mother and fail to offer her the same consideration as Kate had as a pregnant woman and mother. Not once did these terrible people let up in their commentary, like Emily Griffin, Gary Janetti, Fug girls, Elizabeth Holmes — essentially platforms for hate profiting off of a black woman. Disgusting. And the nerve of these white liberals to now champion #BLM while still being in denial of their own racism. B*tch I won’t take a single thing seriously until you cop to and make amends for what YOU have done. Speaking of which, any of these white liberals acknowledge or spread Meghan’s BLM video? Any of them criticize the white royals for doing nothing? It’s all performative activism.

    The fake apology was uncomfortable to watch. Like she was sighing ALOT like a kid who was told to clean his room or he’ll be grounded!! The idiot is only doing it for her upcoming book.
    I too will gladly go down vote Amazon & give her bad reviews on goodreads but especially on google which is where I most read reviews

    She meant what she said-I am tired of people like her apologizing for something they know was wrong to say in the first place-Intelligence is lacking with women like her-then saying she needs to be more careful with her bigotry-ignorance is bliss-a very stupid mistake-stuck on stupid. What Meghan does or not do is none of her business-she should pay attention to the other royals in the family.
