Meghan Markle spoke about her fears of being stereotyped as an "angry Black woman" in her podcast episode last week. However, a royal commentator is not having any of it, pointing out that she is disliked by many because of her attitude and not her skin complexion.
Meghan Markle Is A Thoroughly Dislikeable Person?
Skynews.com.au contributor Caleb Bond reacted to the episode of Meghan Markle's Archetypes episode last week. In the said episode, she talked about how Black women are seemingly not allowed to get angry. Otherwise, they are stereotyped as "angry Black woman."
Bond reacted by saying that Markle has gained a lot of critics due to her attitude. The public's opinion about her has reportedly nothing to do with her skin color.
"Narcissists aren’t particularly good at admitting they’re at fault," Bond wrote, seemingly mocking Prince Harry's wife. "The Duchess of Dreary has claimed her reputation as a demanding person comes down to the 'angry black woman trope'. Maybe such a perception is not because of her ethnicity, but because she's a thoroughly dislikeable person."
In the podcast episode, Markle said that she was not "demanding" but particular. She seemingly blamed the "angry black woman trope" for why she was tagged as such. Bond didn't approve of Markle's words and even attacked the Duchess of Sussex, calling her a narcissist.
"The perversion of celebrity – closely intertwined with narcissism – is strong in Ms Markle," Bond continued. "The fact she’s demanding and difficult and generally disliked by a great deal of the world’s population has nothing to do with her skin colour. It’s because she is demanding and painful – an unfortunate trait of many celebrities who forget who made them famous."
Meghan Markle Uses Podcast To Address Damaging Accusations Against Her?
Markle admitted that there were times when she was afraid to speak her mind due to the possible reaction of the people around her. Her statement about the stereotypical "angry Black woman" received mixed responses.
Royal expert Kinsey Schofield, host of "To Di For Daily" podcast and author of "R is for Revenge Dress," weighed in on Markle's recent remarks in her podcast on Spotify. In her opinion, Markle was using the platform to address the damaging accusations against her.
Prince Harry's wife was called a bully. Some claimed she was hard to work with and was reportedly called "Duchess Difficult."
"This seems really transparent that she's utilizing American media, she's utilizing this podcast to respond kind of vaguely to accusations that both Tom Bower and Valentine Low have made against her in their recent books," Schofield said on GB News. "She wants you to know that she's not a bully, she's just an assertive woman."
Do you agree with what Caleb said about Meghan Markle? What do you think about Schofield's comment about the duchess using her podcast to address allegations against her?
