The British tabloid, The Sun, is notorious for publishing controversial news and opinions, and Jeremy Clarkson’s latest is no different. The columnist claims to be a “voice of calm and reason” on his Twitter bio, but his latest op-ed surrounding the Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan has been anything but reasonable. He explicitly writes how he wishes the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, to have a fate like Cersei’s infamous shame scene in Game of Thrones.

“Meghan, though, is a different story. I hate her. Not like I hate Nicola Sturgeon or Rose West. I hate her on a cellular level. At night, I’m unable to sleep as I lie there, grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowd chants’ Shame!’ and throw lumps of excrem*nt at her,” Clarkson writes in The Sun.

Reactions and Response

Following this, Clarkson received major backlash, and The Sun received over 6,000 official complaints over the article, as per BBC. The writer issued an apology on Twitter which was not received well. It said, “Oh dear. I’ve rather put my foot in it. In a column I wrote about Meghan, I made a clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones and this has gone down badly with a great many people. I’m horrified to have caused so much hurt and I shall be more careful in future.”

Jeremy Clarkson’s daughter, Emily Clarkson, stood against his actions, “I want to make it very clear that I stand against everything my dad wrote about Meghan Markle. My views are and have always been clear when it comes to misogyny, bullying and the treatment of women by the media. I remain standing in support of those targeted with online hatred,” on her Instagram story.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, also condemned the columnist’s piece. He tweeted, “As Jeremy Clarkson should well know – words have consequences. The words in his piece are no joke – they’re dangerous and inexcusable. We are in an epidemic of violence against women and girls and men with powerful voices must do better than this.”
