Archetype and stereotype

A typical example of something or the original model of something from which others are copied is defined as an archetype in the Cambridge dictionary. It frequently alludes to a well-known figure from tales or myths that have been handed down through the ages. A villain, a lover, or a hero are some examples of archetypes. A stereotype, on the other hand, is a derogatory term that is defined as "a set idea that people have about what someone or something is like, especially an idea that is wrong" by the Cambridge Dictionary. However, Some keen observers believe the Duchess misunderstood the definition of archetypes and instead spoke of stereotypes.

Fans criticized Meghan Markle

An unhappy user tweeted, "Not listening to any Spotify podcasts until you stop giving Meghan Markle a platform to have a go at whoever she feels crossed her in her life . Also she’s talking about stereotypes not archetypes . She’s yet to give an example of an archetype."

The same user in another tweet fumed, "Her podcasts are about stereotypes not archetypes . They are two totally different things . From the start it didn’t make sense . But that was to be expected."

Another user slammed Meghan and said, "Seems like Meghan Markle’s podcast is about stereotypes, not archetypes. She no doubt wanted that name because of Archie but if it’s wrong it’s wrong."

"You do know that #MeghanMarkle is discussing stereotypes not archetypes don’t you? Poor Thomas Markle spent a fortune on a private education for his daughter for this…," penned one user.

Another user tweeted, "We have learnt that she uses Spotify as a guise to attempt to fix her bad name but its failing miserably."  Another user said, "STEREOTYPES not ARCHETYPES…. Lol! You would think Nutmeg would know this. Her podcasts use tropes from 25 years ago and downgrade the progress that has been made. No wonder it is failing. You could have had a good career buddy, but you are backing the wrong horse."
