Great Britain. The Sun apologizes for Jeremy Clarkson’s article about Meghan Markle
The British tabloid “The Sun” apologized for Jeremy Clarkson’s text about Meghan Markle, wife of Prince Harry, after which the UK press market regulator IPSO received over 17.5 thousand complaints.
The British tabloid “The Sun” apologized on Friday for the text about Meghan Markle, the wife of Prince Harry, after which the UK press market regulator IPSO received over 17.5 thousand complaints. “We deeply regret the publication of this article and sincerely apologize,” the editorial office said in a statement.
The tabloid also assured that the text had been removed from its website and archive. Its author was the famous British motoring journalist Jeremy Clarkson, former presenter of the “Top Gear” program. He also apologized for the article.
More than 60 MPs signed a letter to the editor-in-chief of The Sun protesting against the publication of the article.
“Oh, I think I got myself in trouble. In the column I wrote about Meghan, I clumsily referred to a scene from ‘Game of Thrones’, which was not well received by many. I’m shocked that I caused so much pain, I should be more careful in the future” – Jeremy Clarkson tweeted.

Clarkson wrote in a text that sparked so many protests that he hates Meghan “on a cellular level”. “I can’t sleep at night, I lie there gnashing my teeth and dreaming of the day when she’ll be forced to walk naked through the streets of every UK city, with mobs chanting ‘shame’ and throwing lumps of excrement,” he wrote.
The column was released on December 16, the day after the premiere of the second and final part of the Netflix series “Harry & Meghan”, in which the royal couple presents their version of events leading to the fact that at the beginning of 2020 she resigned from her duties in the royal family.
