The Sun apologises for publishing Meghan Markle’s hate story

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

The Sun, a British Newspaper, has stated that it regretted publishing a column by former Top Gear host, Jeremy Clarkson, about Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan, after several criticisms.

In the article for The Sun last week, Clarkson wrote that he hated Meghan and dreamt of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain, while the crowds chant, ‘Shame!’ and throw lumps of excrement at her.

A record number of complaints against the column, which was more than 20,000 was made to the UK Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso) and many high-profile figures criticised the piece including author, Philip Pullman, and London Mayor, Sadiq Khan.

The article had been written in response to the couple’s recent Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan”, but has since been removed from the newspaper’s website.

The newspaper apologised for the article by releasing a statement about the publication on Friday. “We at The Sun regret the publication of this article and we are sincerely sorry”, The Sun said in a statement on its website.

The Sun had already removed the article on Monday, from its website at the request of Clarkson, who said on Twitter he made a clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones and this has gone down badly with a great many people.

He added: “I’m horrified to have caused so much hurt and I shall be more careful in future.” In one of the most famous scenes in Game of Thrones, a female character makes a walk of shame, where she is forced to walk down the streets naked as people throw rubbish at her.

“Columnists’ opinions are their own, but as a publisher, we realise that with free expression comes responsibility”, The Sun said.

In the Netflix documentary, Harry and Meghan accused the voracious UK tabloid press of racism, of trying to destroy her and of contributing to her miscarriage through a targeted campaign, fuelled by palace briefings.
