Piers Morgan Slams Pregnant Meghan Markle Calling Her Banana Messages A ‘Humiliating Farce’

Date February 5, 2019 17:56

The Duchess of Sussex has been under fire this week as her seemingly innocent gesture created quite a backlash. During her visit to charity One25, which supports call girls in Bristol, Meghan decided to write empowering messages on bananas that were later sent to the women along with other food items.

Meghan wrote sweet phrases like “You are special” and “You are strong,” which, as it turned out, weren’t welcomed. One of the call girls, who received the food package with the bananas, called the gesture “offensive”, saying that the Duchess could have helped women in a more meaningful way.

Nonetheless, nobody would doubt that Meghan had good intentions. Except for Piers Morgan.

Piers’s brutal verbal attack

The English journalist and TV presenter Piers Morgan is not famous for being nice. However, his recent attack on the Duchess of Sussex was particularly mean.

In an article for Daily Mail, Morgan wrote exactly what he thought about Markle’s banana messages. Firstly, the journalist pointed out that the former American actress is the one who is wearing pants in her marriage because she appears to be in charge of everything.

Then he moved to the now-scandalous messages as he wrote:

I could barely believe what I was watching. Meghan Markle is not a stupid woman. So why did no part of her considerable brain realize that this gesture was, ironically, a massive banana skin to trip on?

The journalist continued by saying that signing those bananas with the words like “You are loved” and giving them to women who sell their bodies for money in order to survive is not empowering but rather humiliating.

Morgan has previously openly criticized the Duchess on numerous occasions, calling her a social climber and stating that she plays like an actress in real life.

However, this time we can’t help but wonder whether his words do ring the truth just a little bit. What do you think?
