Melissa McCarthy on Why People Hate Meghan Markle: She's Incredibly Threatening to Some

In a world where the internet can be as harsh as it is vast, the 'Bridesmaids' star stands up against the internet trolls targeting the Duchess of Sussex.

AceShowbiz - Melissa McCarthy has come to the defense of Meghan Markle, condemning the relentless criticism and hate that the Duchess of Sussex has faced. The actress, who appeared with Markle in a 2021 video, expressed her dismay at the unwarranted attacks.

"It bums me out for every woman and every person, that for no reason people just like to attack," McCarthy told Page Six.

McCarthy, known for her roles in "Bridesmaids" and "Gilmore Girls," praised Markle's intelligence and independence, noting that her success seems to trigger some people. "A smart interesting woman that has her own life, for some reason, is incredibly threatening to some people," she said.

The actress added that Markle is "wonderful" and "awesome," and that she has been inspired by the experiences the couple has shared. "They were so sweet and funny," she recalled of meeting Harry and Meghan. "I just found them very inspiring. They're carving out their own lives for their kids."

McCarthy's comments come amidst growing concern over the negative coverage and online harassment faced by the Duchess of Sussex. She made the remarks during the Broadway opening of "Suffs" on Thursday night, April 18

The Broadway opening of "Suffs," a musical that explores the American women's suffrage movement, prompted McCarthy to reflect on the lack of knowledge about the history of women's rights. "It's really set me off into a wormhole of how much I really need to learn," she admitted. "It's made me appreciate who's come before me that's made my life and my daughters lives better."

McCarthy's support for Markle is a reminder that the Duchess is not alone in facing criticism, and that many people recognize the positive impact she has made.
