English broadcaster Jeremy Clarkson hit an axe of his own leg by penning down his thoughts about Meghan Markle. Enraged with the Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan Clarkson passed vile and vulgar remarks on the Duchess of Sussex. In a write-up for The Sun, he explained his dream of seeing Markle being humiliated in the streets of Britain.
NO Jeremy Clarkson. Not on any level, in any circumstance, is it ok to write this stuff about any woman & absolutely NO to "everyone who's my age thinks the same"
No no no. We absolutely do NOT think the same.

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.
