Meghan Markle was advised by her former friend Piers Morgan to get some perspective after claiming that she was the most trolled person.
Meghan Markle said in a previous conversation that she was the most trolled person in 2019. However, journalist Piers Morgan slammed the duchess and added Donald Trump would surely disagree with her claim.
Meghan Markle slammed for troll claim
Meghan Markle spoke at the podcast entitled Teenager Therapy. During the conversation, the duchess spoke about how the internet opened up one’s vulnerability and became a place for “disconnection.” She recalled being told that she was the most trolled person in the entire world in 2019.
Markle said she wasn’t visible at the time because she was expecting Archie. However, the gossips about her continued and it was “unsurvivable.”
But Markle’s former friend Piers Morgan slammed the former actress for her remarks. The journalist even called Markle a “privileged princess.”
“She said she’s the most trolled person in the world which is not true, certainly Donald Trump wouldn’t agree with that,” Morgan said.
“The online trolling has been so bad its been almost unsurvivable and then today she said she hasn’t had any social media accounts for years – well which one is it?” he continued.
“How do you know what is being said online if you don’t have any social media accounts. It’s all designed.”
Markle admits not having a social media account
Meghan Markle used to be active on social media before she met and married Prince Harry. Markle maintained her own Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram accounts. She also had a blog called The Tig. But she shut down all of her social media account months before she married the royal prince.
Markle spoke at Fortune magazine’s Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit. During her speech, she admitted that it was her personal choice to not have an account on Instagram. She also mentioned that she has no social media presence for a long time because the Sussex Royal Instagram account was managed by their staff.
“For my own self-preservation, I have not been on social media for a very long time,” Markle said.
“I made a personal choice to not have any account, so I don’t know what’s out there, and in many ways that’s helpful for me.”
Piers called Meghan a social climber
Piers Morgan and Meghan Markle used to be friends. However, she allegedly changed when she started dating Prince Harry. Since then, Morgan has been attacking Markle.
Piers also called Markle a “ruthless” social climber. He said Markle is very ambitious and she will stop at nothing to get whatever she wants.
