Meghan Markle Says It Was ‘Almost Unsurvivable’ Being Most Trolled Person in the World
Meghan Markle spoke openly about one of her accolades that she would clearly rather do without – being last year’s most trolled person in the world.
Meghan and Harry sat down with 3 high school students for their “Teenage Therapy” podcast to mark World Mental Health Day on Saturday.
Meghan spoke about what could be the biggest problem facing teens … online bullying. Check out the podcast at 4 minutes and 49 seconds. You hear the emotion in Meghan’s voice as she says, “I can speak personally too. I’m told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the world, male or female.”
She went on to say … “Now 8 months ago [when she was pregnant] I was not even visible. I was on maternity leave or with a baby. But, what could be manufactured and produced is almost insurmountable. “
As for Harry… he spoke of loss and grief – something he knows all too well. He also spoke obliquely about politics, saying: “Vulnerability is not a weakness. Showing vulnerability in today’s world is especially a strength.” And, then he said this … “We can certainly see that more from some of our world leaders.” A snap at Asset maybe … a president who sees masks as a sign of weakness and calls the coronavirus “a gift from God”.
Meghan clarified … she was deeply affected by the negative comments, saying: ‘I don’t care if you’re 15 or 25, if people are saying things about you that are not true, what? – what it is is so damaging to your mental and emotional health. “
