Thomas Markle doesn’t think the ‘baby’s skin color’ issue was racist in the least


The Duchess of Sussex’s toxic father is still being paid to memorize scripts written for him by British journalists. There is literally no other explanation for why this keeps happening, and the increasingly bizarre sh-t said by Thomas Markle. He’s just a performing circus animal, trotted out every so often on British outlets, to yammer about how Meghan and Harry are “disrespecting the Queen.” I can only assume – given Toxic Tom’s appearance this morning on Good Morning Britain – that Piers Morgan was the one to write today’s script. Some lowlights:

The “skin color of the baby” issue was not racism: “I have great respect for the royals, and I don’t think the British royal family are racist at all. I don’t think the British are racist, I think Los Angeles is racist, California is a racist, but I don’t think the Brits are. The thing about what color will the baby be or how dark will the baby be — I’m guessing and hoping it’s just a dumb question from somebody … It could be somebody asked a stupid question. Rather than being a total racist. This whole thing about color and how dark the baby is, is bull—,” Markle said, adding that he thought the remark should be investigated.

On Meghan’s description of her suicidal thoughts: “Had I known she had psychological problems, I would have been there for her,” he said, but claimed that Meghan had “pretty much ghosted” her family in the US and “she really had no one to reach out to.” Markle, 76, did concede that the revelations of his daughter’s mental state “really did upset me.”

Thomas Markle thinks they should have delayed the interview: Asked further about the explosive interview his daughter and son-in-law gave to Oprah, Markle said “they went way over the top,” and should have waited, considering that Prince Philip, was still in the hospital after undergoing a heart procedure. “They should have waited considering the queen’s age and Philip’s age,” he said.

He is so disgusting: He was “disappointed” after watching the interview and that he “can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child”. “I’m very disappointed about it. I’ve apologised about this thing, what happened, at least 100 times or so. The bottom line is I’ve never heard back from Meghan or Harry in any way shape or form. When they say that I’m taking advantage of the press, well basically what I do because I haven’t heard from them, is I’ll do a story for the press. If I don’t hear from them in 30 days then I’ll do another story for the press. When they decide to talk to me I’ll stop talking to the press.” He added that no one had offered him help or support ahead of the wedding, and in a sharp criticism of Harry, he said: “In spite of all that, I still apologised . . . but I’ve never played naked pool and I’ve never dressed up as Hitler.”

“The bottom line is I’ve never heard back from Meghan or Harry in any way shape or form… well basically what I do because I haven’t heard from them, is I’ll do a story for the press. If I don’t hear from them in 30 days then I’ll do another story for the press.” Just pointing out that the whole reason why Meghan wrote her father a letter in 2018 was to ask him to stop doing these interviews. She did contact him and tell him what he needed to do to be in her life. He refused to do as she asked, sold the letter she sent him and lied about how she had not contacted him for years, and he’s still lying about it. Instead of asking those follow-up questions, British media continues to both exploit Thomas Markle and exert complicity in his very public abuse of his daughter.

    He also said that the BRF and the people of GB aren’t racist, but that LA and California are.

    In other words, he knows exactly who will continue to write cheques payable to him.

    • Seraphina says:

      Correct. Never, ever, bite the hand that feeds you.

    • Mac says:

      GB isn’t racist. Hmmm, explain 500 years of colonialism.

      • AlpineWitch says:

        Brits are obsessed about not being racists, they don’t want to be called off. Meghan put the knife in the wound of a country with just a sentence.

        This denial on Brits’ part happens on all papers, not just the Daily Fail or the Sun to name a couple of rags full of trolls.

        If anyone comments anywhere (social media or papers) telling about racism or xenophobia they have suffered and call the Brits racists, be sure you get a million comments under it saying that UK is the most tolerant country ever and that there are far more racist countries.

        I’ve been the victim of a hate crime twice in UK (xenophobia, not racism as I am not a POC) and the police even refused to accept the report. It speaks volumes about the unwillingness to acknowledge that this country has a big problem with racism and xenophobia.

      • Sarah says:

        I think the xenophobia helped make things worse for Meghan too. Racism was definitely the driver but xenophobia came along for the ride. My sister is a white British citizen but speaks with a Canadian accent and people said horrible things to her during the run up to Brexit. They didn’t seem to understand that Brexit didn’t mean they are getting rid of all foreigners.

    • Lila says:

      Ever since he said Meghan was behaving like a chav, I was certain he was given a script by these producers.

      • Shoo fly says:

        The naked pool thing is also not well know in the US. He’s absolutely using British liens and britishisms

        Also, wasn’t it Piers that want the Harry who plays naked pool and loves dim blonde young conservatives back?

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        What’s a chav? They couldn’t hire someone to translate his script into american english so it didn’t obviously look like a script? They’re all a bunch of idiots.

      • M4lificent says:

        Absolutely. Americans NEVER use the word “chav” — not even once in a while. I’m surprised that didn’t come out when Thomas first read the script and had to ask them what a chav was.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      Of course he would say that. Many like him sold their own children hundreds of years ago.

    • Gab says:

      There could easily be elements of racism in both CA and England.

    • HeyJude says:

      Those weren’t his words. You literally can hear Piers hysterical whining columns exactly shadowed in them. (“AHHHH California! California! California’s so baaaad!!!”, Tom lived his entire life in CA before he retired. But Morgan’s Mail columns are ALWAYS going on about it and Hollywood.)

      Tom is not a bright man, we saw that in his very early interviews he was bumbling and inarticulate, he wasn’t this precise. Literally Morgan wrote those blurbs for him. There’s no doubt.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        This, HeyJude. This, exactly. And as such, those words can and should be ignored.

    • missskitttin says:

      Like he even knows the royal family? The nerve…

    • GINEVRA says:

      Daddy Dearest lard ass Thomas should shut the hell up. He and his vile daughter vile scammy Samantha are making a fortune selling Meghan out to the racist British press.

      I wonder if the IRS is aware of the extra money they are making.

  2. HeatherC says:

    Dear Thomas MarKKKle
    The Sussexes don’t negotiate with terrorists.

    (also if there are pictures of him playing pool naked, please don’t release them. Ever.)

  3. Peanut says:

    What exactly did he apologize for? Seriously, this reads like he apologized for the staged photos and he thinks that is enough. He may have apologized for that, but what he’s done i.e., the interviews are so much more hurtful, damaging, toxic, and he still keeps doing it. This pathetic excuse for a father doesn’t even get that he contributed to her mental state when she wanted to kill herself. He “would have been there for her?” Well, he was and he was pushing her closer to the edge.

  4. girl_ninja says:

    How this man charmed his way into Queen Doria’s heart is beyond me. He is so far beneath her in every way.

    Though she is dealing with his toxicity from afar I’m very happy for Meghan that she doesn’t have him in her life any longer.

    • Dierski says:

      This disgusting man reminds me so much of my own (very toxic) father. After being terrible and emotionally abusive to me for years (even after I welcomed his only grandchild 8 years ago), I finally recognized his abuse to the full and awful extent it was and I finally cut him out of my life last year.

      That being said, my mom talks about how she not recognize the man my father has become over the years either. She is in as much disbelief as me and my sister when looking at who my father has become. My parents divorced in the 90′s, and my father just slowly devolved into the worst version of himself over the years. In my father’s case, his mental health was likely already tenuous while married to my mom, but then he stopped caring to help himself, and the spiral downward continued.

      This is how I imagine it with Doria and Tom- he was normal enough back when they were together ages ago, but then after their split he slowly went off the rails, until we see him how, and he has obviously become the complete mess we’re seeing in the media today. That’s just my guess, as I agree Doria is a queen, who has been one of the few stable and supporting forces in H&M&A’s life during this intense transition for them. Thank goodness for her kind heart!

      British media needs to stop giving these gross people (Tom-Messy-Markle, et. al.) a platform. No one needs to hear from that pile of soup ever again!

  5. Mac says:

    How disgusting. I’m pretty sure threatening Meghan won’t get him a phone call and I think it’s pretty arrogant to assume he will be relevant one month from now. The press only drags him out when they need to deflect from themselves.

    • Nina says:

      Here’s a thought, he’s used this playbook before. Bet he used these tactics on Doria during and after their divorce. Threats, making her life hell, demanding to still spend time with her under the pretext of spending time with Meghan. That explains the holidays together, eating dinner together. Eventually, every a-hole gets exposed.

  6. Sunday says:

    and that’s why you’ll never meet your grandchildren. what a pathetic excuse for a human being.

  7. Mel says:

    Seeing that his children referred to his then wife (Doria) as the maid, not surprised. That being said, please do NOT give this person attention. I believe his daughter purposely didn’t discuss him or his wretched children in order for them to be irrelevant. Let’s keep them irrelevant.

    • Ariel says:

      I was THRILLED that the main interview gave them next to no attention.
      She mentioned she was under stress before the wedding b/c of him (in relation to the kate being nasty story); and that she had “lost” him.
      But otherwise- zero.
      I loved that.
      I did see some next morning clips on them, but that was it.

  8. NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

    Thomas apologized and continues doing the thing his daughter asked him not to do and expects to be considered trustworthy enough to hear from them? He is beyond delusional if he thinks Meghan will ever give him the time of day again.

    • GINEVRA says:

      Daddy Dearest only wants to get to d a photo-op with Meghan and baby Archie to sell them. In fact, he literally said that…begging to have pictures taken.

  9. LaraW” says:

    Why does he always look drunk?

    • Myra says:

      He sounded drunk, as well. A disgusting father. Shame on ITV for allowing an abuser to blackmail his victim on live TV. ITV should really come with a health warning.

    • missskitttin says:

      Because he is.

  10. Emm says:

    Another pathetic move by piers. Same old sh!t different day. This is not new information and we could all guess exactly what TM was going to be given to say. It’s all so obvious. I imagine piers has one of this closets in his house like a serial killer full of photos and articles of Meghan taped to the wall and the napkin she used from their alleged pub meeting that he strokes every night.

    I live in the US so I’m not familiar with this morning show but who is the woman co hosting with piers? Is she just as bad as him?

    • SarahCS says:

      I don’t watch the show but my understanding is that she is not, she pushes back and IMO should be getting serious danger money to have to deal with him on a regular basis.

      • Spanky says:

        I don’t know if she’s so innocent. Seems like a “good cop, bad cop” routine to me. I think that they both know what they’re doing.

    • Donna B. says:

      That woman is just as horrible. In the interview, she told Tom, “Meghan seemed angry.” These women loved to use the “angry Black woman” mantra when they can. Meghan’s interview showed how “upset” she was; but angry not.

  11. SarahCS says:

    I mean at least he’s being honest about his attempts to blackmail them with his press appearances?

    But yeah, middle-aged white American man is clearly who we need to listen to as the final word on whether Britain is racist.

    • kelleybelle says:

      He is 76 and keeps saying he could die soon. Lord forgive me but it would be merciful for all if he passed in his sleep. And the best thing is that he can’t take all his dirty money with him.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        Too good for him. He needs to be awake and suffer a massive heart attack and realize the end has come.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Sammie would probably be close by emptying his pockets of any money he still has.

    • equality says:

      Well, he is, of course, speaking from his vast experience living there (sarc).

  12. Amy Bee says:

    What a scumbag. Meghan said she lost her father. So I don’t think there’s any hope of a reconciliation and even if she wanted one she can’t because he’ll just sell the story to the tabloids. Both Meghan and Harry have awful fathers.

  13. lanne says:

    He has cost Meghan her piece of mind. He has cost her millions of dollars in legal fees. He is a classic, textbook narcissist, where negative attention is better than none. He will never leave them in peace, as long as he is alive. he will never learn. Her only recourse is to cut him out of her life forever. He is a cancer. No amount of contact would ever be enough for him, just as an invitation to the wedding would never have been enough for Piers Morgan. Piss Morgan would have wanted to have Meghan on speeddial–he would have been like those awful “niceguys” on reddit who blow up your phone if you don’t answer back, and call you names and harrass you if you don’t give them your undivided attention. It’s nasty and so, so cruel. Poor Meghan. I’m so sorry she has been betrayed by the person who was supposed to protect her the most.

  14. (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

    Anyone else think he looked sedated? Or slightly drunk?

    Either way, he is an evil excuse of a mercenary, lying sack of shyte. To *continually* sell out YOUR CHILD… YOUR CHILD WHO HAS *TOLD* YOU of the horrendous pain you’re inflicting to her mental/emotional health by doing this… and yet, you CONTINUE to do this… ???

    Not a hell hot enough for this one.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      His comment about incredulity re: inflicting pain on one’s own child is beyond the pale. jfc.

    • Aphra says:

      Not to excuse him in ANY way, but I suspect he is a little drunk. I would need a stiff drink to go on global television and invite wrath, just for a few bucks.

      He could so easily say I’m sorry, baby, this is the last time I will speak publicially. Please forgive me.

  15. Lauren says:

    They are trying to make the baby’s skin colour issue pass as casual racism. There was a lady in a talk show saying how it was probably asked as in if the baby would take after Meghan’s darker complexion completely ignoring the concerned part. Thankfully the other host set her straight and ripped her a new one. Some one should rip this ahole a new one too, but he is not worth it. The world knows that he is trash, that talks to other trash to trash his own daughter.

  16. Michelle says:

    Racism is everywhere!!! I’m british and can tell you racism has always been here in the UK. I have never had any time for the royal family. We’re all still treated as peasants that need to bow in their presence, while funding their lavish lifestyle.

    • Amy Too says:

      I honestly don’t get how Thomas thinks he’s going to have some kind of relationship with or get some kind of reward or acknowledgment from the royal family. He is siding with them over his own daughter and keeps talking about how much he loves and respects the Queen, and how the royal family is great, and how the UK and the royal family aren’t racist. Does he think that if he keeps saying these things that one day the Queen is going to call him up personally and invite him to come live at the palace and be knighted? He goes way beyond just defending himself and his own actions, he defends and stands up for and carried water for the palace. Why? They wouldn’t touch him with a ten foot pole and likely find him to be a disgusting, embarrassing, shameful person to have in any way connected with the royal family.

    • Donna B. says:

      I’m in the US. The US isn’t perfect by no means, but sorry you guys have to “bow” to these people, while your taxes pay for their upkeep.

  17. BlueSky says:

    Toxic narcissist. Yes using emotional blackmail on your heavily pregnant daughter will always work. 🙄

  18. Tiffany says:

    So Meghan has no one in California except…..

    Her Mother, Doria
    Tyler Perry
    Tyler Perry’s Mansion for three months
    Tyler Perry’s security for three months
    Tyler Perry footing the bill for them for three months
    Oprah Winfrey’s phone number
    Oprah Winfrey as a neighbor
    Serena Williams as a close and personal

    Oh, he means Meghan had no one white,

    Got it.

    • Aphra says:

      Harry is white. And presumably there for his wife.

    • BlueToile says:

      You just hit the nail on the head.

      On a side note, I didn’t even know who Tyler Perry was before last year when he let H&M move into his ah-mazing mansion in CA. After this interview I have total respect for what he did for them. He seriously rescued them at a point when they were extremely vulnerable both physically and emotionally. He must have known they needed to act quickly due to the pandemic or they would be stuck in Canada (without her mom and only a few friends) and nowhere else to go…except maybe back to the UK. This reflects very well on his character. Did they know him well before his offer? Anyone know? Either way, he stepped up and no one was any the wiser until months later.

      • Nina says:

        I worked with a lady who knew him personally before he became rich and famous. He has always been a kind person. Helping people is nothing new for him. He was doing it before he even had all that money.

  19. Jay says:

    Um, this is blackmail, right?” If I don’t get access to you in 30 days, I’ll do another interview?”

    Can we just stop listening to what this disturbed person has to say about someone he has not been in contact with for years, and discussing topics he clearly knows NOTHING about?

    Also, Meghan said it best when she said (about Samantha) that she does not feel comfortable commenting on someone she doesn’t know. Literally “I don’t know her”!

    • Angel says:

      I bet she was so mad when Meghan said that lol.

    • Cate says:

      Yes, this is 100% a threat/blackmail, though I’m sure he doesn’t see it that way (my father is also a toxic narcissist who tried to destroy my marriage and pulled similar shot when I cut him off, though fortunately I am not famous so his options for shit behavior were much more limited).

  20. kelleybelle says:

    And guess who’s paying this abusive bastard to even SAY that? Guess! Could they BE any more transparent? Notice the Black security around Charles this morning. This family are nothing but criminals and abusers in fancy clothes, nothing more. And for anyone in doubt, the press feeds them what to say. They do the same with Jr. and Sam too. This scum is only being paid and used to torture Meghan. Laughable.

    • lanne says:

      the only black people around the RF and servants. That’s as it should be for them. Black people shouldn’t be family. And clearly, they are not.

  21. Miranda says:

    He needs to keep Meghan’s name out of his mouth. How dare he speak up now, and take the side of the racist royal family instead of his daughter. Is it surprising? No. Is it disgusting? Oh god, yes.

    I’ve noticed that a lot of sites still refer to Meghan as “Meghan Markle”, and I’m so glad this site has chosen to go with “Duchess Meghan” (or just “Meghan”) instead. I obviously don’t know how she feels about it, but I hate to use her maiden name because I don’t want her to be associated with her shitty father and half-sister.

  22. Colleen says:

    This man is some kind of witch’s hex come to life :-|

  23. Oy_Hey says:

    He was “disappointed” after watching the interview and that he “can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child”

    You’re doing it right now, bro. Also how abusive is the rest of that statement. He’ll continue contacting Meghan in public (on TV no less) against her will until she talks to him. That’s literally what domestic abusers try to do – threatening you into submission. Ewww.

  24. Sojaschnitzel says:

    White dude thinks racist is not a big deal. News at 11:00.

  25. Eva says:

    White people’s opinions of what racism is and is not are not valid.

  26. equality says:

    Eugenie’s nude photo scandal at school. Kate, Di, Fergie and Sophie all caught topless sunbathing. William urinating outside in pictures. Charles caught nude in France. Seems like the royals have no issues with nudity. But funny how Harry is the only one constantly brought up.

    • Annalise says:

      Not to mention the billion times Kate flashed her knickers to the whole world because she refused to put weights in the hems of those light, flouncy dresses she would wear in the WINDIEST possible environments. I REALLY came to believe she was doing it on purpose and got off on it, it happened SO many times.

      • equality says:

        Could be because there were rumors that she used to moon people when she was at school.

  27. Vanessa says:

    Are we all surprised that Thomas has come up for under his troll bridge to spewed his typical Bs I’m so gladly that a bunch of white man and woman are such experts in Racism that they can tells us folk black what is racist and what isn’t. This is man who had no problem calling his daughter uppity so of course he knows all about Racism. I’m so sick of white people trying to tells us what isn’t or is racism .

  28. Misha says:

    He is openly saying that hes blackmailing Meghan and literally saying every 30 days Meghan doesn’t talk to him he will do another story, and legitimately sees nothing wrong with that? That by itself would be enough to cut ties for me.

    Cannot believe anyone believes he is the hurt one here, and can’t believe a father would do this to his own daughter.

    • Amy Too says:

      The part where he says he’s apologized like 100 times about the pap photos pre wedding—I think he means he’s “apologized” once, on tv, not to her, and then he’s brought up the fact that’s he “apologized” 99 more times. Reminding someone that you already apologized is not the same as apologizing again.

  29. NTheMiddle says:

    His blatant blackmail statement…
    “.. If I don’t hear from them in 30 days then I’ll do another story for the press. When they decide to talk to me I’ll stop talking to the press.”

    I *wonder* why she doesn’t talk to you anymore… hmmm.

    • Nina says:

      Wonder how he is going to do his monthly dog and pony show now that his ringmaster is gone.

  30. aquarius64 says:

    I think Meghan is fine right now. When you look at the Oprah outtakes you can see she is saddened but has resigned herself that her father is a lost cause and she won’t expose her children to this monster. But notice the US mainstream press is not running this toxic mess (Fox at some point maybe); nor a US legitimate journalist wants to interview the Markles. I bet he and Scammy thought the Oprah interview would spring them to legitimacy and prestige. The US straight press see them for what they are : abusers and blackmailers. They won’t waste the time and TT and Scammy wouldn’t survive follow up questions and on the spot fact checking. As the Sussexes enjoy their Monteceito mansion and getting the nursery ready for Baby Girl Sussex, the half sibs begs for scraps from the tabloids and TT performs as a circus act on command for GMB.

  31. MsIam says:

    I think this is the end of the line for Toxic. How long can he milk this “aggrieved father” schtick? At some point, they can just rerun the same tapes over and over because he has nothing new to say. Enjoy oblivion Tom!

  32. Deanne says:

    I just love how a white man, who has never been to England and has never met the Royal Family, is making this bold statement about whether or not they are racist. Gotta keep those cheques coming I guess.

  33. what's inside says:

    I see you Thomas Markle, hard at work earning your wage from the tabloids. At least you have some loyalty left — to the likes of the Daily Mail and the rest of the pack of hyenas.

  34. MangoAngelesque says:

    Now we know why Piers an off the set of GMB so fast. He had a video call to make real quick.

  35. Soupie says:

    Wait – this tool didn’t wonder what his baby’s skin color was going to look like when his wife was pregnant?? Seriously doubt it. I don’t know what this guy’s trip is but I don’t care. He married a black woman now look where he’s at. He handled the whole thing wrong and she left him. The gorgeous little girl grew up and became somebody super important and super wonderful and he screwed it up. That’s all I know.

    As for Piers Morgan, I join the cacophony of vitriol against that complete waste of space.

  36. Petra says:

    This man is vile to show his face after watching the interview. He lacks character and morals. I’m glad the interview did not give TT much airtime. Like Meghan stated her mom was hounded my the media and she did not sell her out. Shame on TT, this man has no shame. A person with an ounce of dignity would take this time as an opportunity to start apologizing to his daughter.

  37. julie j says:

    The man is clearly unwell and the press is using him as their spokesperson. Anyone who takes half of what he says seriously is deaf in one ear and can’t hear out of the other.

  38. sunny says:

    This man seems like he is not well so it is sad to see this toxicity. But really it is hilarious that white people continue to think they are the arbiters of what is racist. Truly all lols.

  39. mindyourbidness says:

    wrong place

  40. Donna B. says:

    When you watch the video, you can tell he is trying to remember the script he is supposed to say during this “interview.” Also, a year or so ago, he stated the same thing in another interview about Meghan ghosting both sides of her family, the thing about doing the interviews every 30 days if he doesn’t speak to Meghan, etc., etc.; because after that interview, a picture was posted on the sussexroyal instagram or twitter showing Harry, Meghan, & another Black woman smiling & talking. I believe this was at a gathering with Doria’s side of the family to show that Thomas is a LIAR & the people interviewing him are LIARS TOO.
