Hillary Clinton has come to Duchess Meghan's defense. In a new interview published in the U.K. newspaper The Sunday Times, the former first lady as well as her daughter Chelsea Clinton, were asked about their thoughts on Meghan's treatment in the British media and their decision to take action. "I do want to say that the way she's been treated is inexplicable. If the explanation is that she's biracial, then shame on everybody."
Chelsea Clinton Respects Meghan
Hillary went on to add that she believes that race is "certainly a part of it." Chelsea also came to the defense of the Duchess by saying that "she proudly had a career first and has a voice that she thankfully continues to use. Anyone who has the temerity to break the mold of what has previously been established and expected often, unfortunately receives criticism and bile that I don't understand. We've seen this pattern repeatedly."
Chelsea Clinton believes that Meghan's treatment in the media could have something to do with her advocacy. Adding, "I don't know her, but as someone who respects her, I'm so grateful that she persists, and is unbowed, and is doing work she feels called to do. And isn't willing to be bullied."
Prince Harry and Meghan are suing British tabloids
Earlier this month, Prince Harry spoke out about the "ruthless campaign" against his wife and the decision that they made for Meghan to sue the Mail on Sunday for publishing a private letter she wrote to her father. It has also been reported that Prince Harry will be taking legal action against The Sun and The Daily Mirror over alleged interceptions of his personal cell phone voicemails. There are mixed feelings about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex taking legal action over these matters, however they have said they would donate all of the money gained to charities. The bullying must stop now.
