Piers Morgan mocks Meghan for claiming she's the most trolled person: 'Adele was first, Gemma Collins second'
'Adele was first as she lost weight and all the people who loved her for being fat trolled her'
On Monday, October 12, Piers Morgan was back with his anger against Meghan as he took a dig at the former senior royal for saying she is the “most trolled person in the world”. The 55-year-old claimed that Meghan had the wrong data as he knew that Adele topped the list of the most trolled celebrities. Morgan said: “Adele was first as she lost weight and all the people who loved her for being fat trolled her! If you lose weight and get healthy and get trolled,” before adding, “Gemma Collins was second and Meghan third."
The broadcaster also said that he gets “the most trolls from Meghan Markle fans. The tone-deafness is remarkable.” Not just that, Morgan also mocked Meghan by looking in the camera and saying, “Are you OK in your Santa Barbara mansion?" The former newspaper editor then talked about his new book ‘Wake Up’ in ‘Good Morning Britain’ and added that readers will have much information about Meghan in his new piece of work, The Mirror reported.
Morgan’s criticism came after Meghan appeared with Prince Harry on a podcast to mark World Mental Health Day. The pair joined three teenagers on Saturday, October 10, and discussed the importance of self-care and mental health struggles amid the Covid-19. During the talk, the former actress also said: “I'm told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world, male or female. Eight months of that I wasn’t even visible — I was on maternity leave or with a baby. But what was able to be manufactured and churned out, it’s almost unsurvivable. I don’t care if you're 15 or you're 25 — if people are saying things about you that aren't true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging."
Her husband condemned online trolls who "hide behind usernames". Harry said: “There are things that are said digitally that nobody would say in person. I think putting your self-care as a priority is hugely important, because vulnerability is not a weakness. Showing vulnerability in today's world especially, is a strength.”
Meanwhile, another report has stated that Meghan told her PR team that she wanted to be the most “famous person on earth”, according to royal author Lady Colin Campbell. The author of ‘Meghan and Harry: The Real Story’ was speaking on the Graham Norton's BBC Radio 2 show, where she said: “I started writing that book because last year I knew privately that Meghan — with Harry's connivance — was getting up to all sorts of things in America that she was completely forbidden from doing as a royal. Getting involved with commercial enterprises, flying kites in terms of politics — because she's very political — and also instructing her PR people that they were to make her into the most famous person on earth. To be the most famous person on earth, it's a very deliberate policy and it has to involve a tremendous amount of controversy, otherwise you're just not that famous."
