Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have always been rigidly honest when it came to speaking in interviews. Unlike age-old British tabloids that require the Royals to remain tight-lipped about the intricate matter of the Palace, Harry and Meghan have been refreshingly open. However, with fame comes an equal proportion of hatred.
The internet is deeply divided into Team Royals and Team Sussexes. While the Duke and Duchess have millions of supporters who seem to resonate with the couple’s pain and suffering, the other side has subjected them to a thick cover of criticism and backlashes. No sooner did Netflix’s official YouTube channel drop the minute-long trailer of Harry and Meghan, than the outraged media launched a verbal assault on the couple.
YouTubers troll in trends Prince Harry and Meghan Markle post-trailer release
As Twitter tears apart the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, YouTubers, on the other hand, have trolled the pair in a trend. Below the recently released trailer segment of the much-anticipated Docuseries, YouTube users have spammed the comment section, trolling everything out of the video. What started as a meme 12 years ago, is now being used as a troll phrase for the Sussexes post the trailer release. For the unversed, the meme phrase officially started as a trend a decade ago. Dark members of the web use this to state the obvious from a piece of information.
Hours after the trailer dropped, thousands of comments, and still counting, have been uploaded with the meme phrase, “I love the part where…” Starting from making demeaning remarks about the strained relationships with the Palace to their renunciation, haters have said it all. A comment which has been attracting the most likes even takes a direct potshot at Netflix. It stated, “I love the part where Netflix actually has the balls to leave the comments open. It’s pure gold.”
Some users even centered their remarks on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s stand for “structural racism.” They sarcastically commented on how the Duchess never invited any one of her mother’s family members. Their wish for “privacy” also took a shot with satirical statements. A YouTuber also criticized them for ignoring Markle’s parents while preaching to the world, message of compassion.
All in all, the users did not leave a single opportunity to call out the Sussexes. It remains to see how the world reacts when the official Docu-Series will be finally out.
What is your take on all these comments? Do you agree with the trolls?
