A “Sun” columnist crushed after a violent article against Meghan


Jeremy Clarkson, columnist for the tabloid, wrote in particular that he hoped that the Duchess would undergo a "walk of shame", the day after the release of the second part of "Meghan and Harry".

Shocking words.

Jeremy Clarkson, a columnist for the British tabloid

The Sun

known for years for his provocative outings, sparked heated controversy after a vitriolic column against Meghan Markle, in which he said he dreamed of seeing a crowd throwing excrement on the Duchess of Sussex.

Meghan Markle, “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 through the streets of every city in the UK, while the crowds shout '' Shame!' and throw feces on him,” Jeremy Clarkson wrote in the article published on Friday.

The British press already implicated for its virulent remarks towards Meghan

This column was published the day after Netflix aired the final episodes of the

Harry and Meghan

documentary , in which the Sussexes notably accused the press of racism and of wanting to "destroy" Meghan.

The columnist with an already sulphurous reputation has attracted a torrent of outraged reactions.

From the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, many personalities strongly condemned Jeremy Clarkson's remarks.

Even Prime Minister Rishi Sunak reacted from Latvia where he was traveling, saying that "words are important" when you are a public person.

The British press constable (Ipso) said it had received more than 12,000 complaints.

After several days of a controversy that has continued to swell,

The Sun

withdrew the column from its website on Monday afternoon, claiming to do so at the request of its author.

A columnist already pinned for his outrageous outings

Jeremy Clarkson, 62, apologized on Twitter.

“I made an awkward reference to (the series)

Game of Thrones

and it was taken badly by many people.

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

In one of

Game of Thrones

' most iconic sequences , a female character undergoes "the walk of shame", during which she is forced to walk naked through the streets while people throw trash at her.

This is not the first time that Jeremy Clarkson has stood out for outrageous or provocative remarks.

In 2015, he was ousted from the BBC's Top Gear show after physically and verbally assaulting a producer.

Before that, he had already aroused many controversies with sometimes racist exits.
