'I hate her': Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reject Sun's apology for murderous column


The newspaper had published the text of columnist Jeremy Clarkson the day after the broadcast of the second episode of the series devoted to co

“I hate her.

(…) At night, I can't sleep and I lie there, gritting my teeth and dreaming of the day when she will be paraded naked in the streets of all the cities of the United Kingdom, while the crowd shouts


and throw excrement on him.


Columnist Jeremy Clarkson may be renowned for his particularly virulent words, but the violence expressed against Meghan Markle definitely does not pass.

His writings were published by the Sunday Times the day after the broadcast of the second episode of the Netflix series devoted to the departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the monarchy.

" Publicity shot "

The tabloid tried to put out the fire on Friday by apologizing and deleting the content on its website on Monday at the author's request.

But the effort was considered very largely insufficient.

It was a spokesman who took the trouble to comment on the Sunday Times apology.

According to him, Meghan and Harry saw it as a simple "publicity stunt" and strongly rejected the apologies made.

And all the more so since the Sunday Times would not even have bothered to contact Meghan Markle directly to apologize to her directly.

Both still accuse the newspaper of “exploiting hatred, violence and misogyny”.

In a tweet published on December 19, Jeremy Clarkson had mentioned "a clumsy reference to (the series) Game of Thrones".

“It was taken badly by many people.

I am horrified to have caused so much pain and will be more careful in the future.


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 future.

The case sparked a real controversy on the other side of the Channel.

The British press regulator received a record 20,000 complaints in the process.

"The columnists' opinions are theirs, but as publishers we understand that with free expression comes responsibility," the newspaper wrote.

We at The Sun regret the publication of this article and are sincerely sorry.
