Sean Hannity has called Prince Harry 'a right royal pain in the **s' for saying that the First Amendment is “bonkers”, Daily Mail reported. Calling out the royal for his statements which he made on Dax Shepard's podcast Armchair Expert on Thursday, May 13, the media personality said, “Before we go I have a message for Harry who is now attacking one of America's most sacred rights, the freedom of speech. Harry, we really don't need you coming from England to give us lectures on the First Amendment.”

He continued: “And if you can't understand the importance of free expression and the importance of Constitutional principles that allow for a free exchange of ideas and opinions that make America the greatest country on earth then maybe it's time for you to move to a place more compatible with your restrictive ideas. This is what public figures in America go through.”

Hannity also stated that he “kind of feel sorry for” the Duke of Sussex since “you seem torn between your new bride and your family back in England,” before adding: “Understand this is the same First Amendment that allowed you and your wife to trash your own family in the Oprah Winfrey interview. You and Meghan were allowed to accuse your family of racism. We don't really need lectures about customs or sacred freedoms, and by the way you're free to go home, make amends at the Palace with the people that you and your wife hurt deeply.” And as the 59-year-old concluded, Fox News' 10 pm host Laura Ingraham mentioned to him, “I thought you were going to throw the Revolutionary War in his face.”

Harry left the UK with his wife Meghan Markle and their son Archie in 2020 to live an independent life. The trio initially shifted to Canada before moving to the US and since earned a lot by signing huge deals with big players like Netflix and Spotify. The 36-year-old who is soon-to-be-dad of a baby girl recently came on Shepard's podcast, where he said, “I've got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers. I don't want to start going down the First Amendment route because that's a huge subject and one which I don't understand because I've only been here a short time, but you can find a loophole in anything. You can capitalize or exploit what's not said rather than uphold what is said.”

Harry's remarks did not go down well with Americans, who were earlier reportedly sympathetic towards him and supported him when he and Meghan alleged to have faced racism inside the Palace. American columnist Meghan McCain tweeted, “We fought a war in 1776 so we don’t have to care what you say or think. That being said, you have chosen to seek refuge from your homeland here and thrive because all of what our country has to offer and one of the biggest things is the 1st amendment - show some utter respect.” “Prince Harry is attacking America's First Amendment Tells you everything you need to know,” Jack Posobiec wrote.
