Patrick J. Adams, Meghan Markle’s co-star in the TV show Suits, has condemned the royal family as “obscene,” and the “racist, slanderous vitriol” of the media in a powerful series of tweets.
Adams’ passionate defense of Meghan came after it was announced that Buckingham Palace had begun an investigation into bullying allegations made against the Duchess by former Palace staff, just days before the broadcast of Meghan’s much-hyped interview with Oprah Winfrey on CBS this Sunday night. In a statement, Meghan said the allegations were part of a “calculated smear campaign.”
Adams said that it was “OBSCENE that the Royal Family, whose newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of ‘bullying’ against a woman who herself was basically forced to flee the UK in order protect her family and her own mental health.
