Go boil your heads

But on Saturday, a spokesperson for the Sussexes said Meghan had not been contacted by the newspaper to apologise.

The spokesperson said: “The fact that the Sun has not contacted the Duchess of Sussex to apologise shows their intent. This is nothing more than a PR stunt.

“While the public absolutely deserves the publication’s regrets for their dangerous comments, we wouldn’t be in this situation if the Sun did not continue to profit off and exploit hate, violence and misogyny. A true apology would be a shift in their coverage and ethical standards for all. Unfortunately, we’re not holding our breath.”

Sorry, Honey, but being slagged off occasionally is part of the price of fame. Tough.

BTW, please do go hold your breaths.

  1. “we wouldn’t be in this situation if the Sun did not continue to profit off and exploit hate, violence and misogyny.”

    Clarkson’s pop culture humour is violence, is it?

    The trouble with conflict escalation like this – I say something daft, you call it daft, so I call you hateful, so you etc. – is that unless it actually does issue in real violence, it ends up in ridiculous impotent hyperbole. That’s why Clarkson dipped out early to leave the Markles frothing.

  2. People over here tired of it a long time ago but tiring of something and being able to ignore it in the face of relentless publicity are very different. I was surprised and gratified recently to hear first hand how they are similarly derided and now actively disliked by so many in the USA.

    From Netflix through the telegraph (several articles a day) down to our esteemed host legacy and broadcast media have noted this morbid fascination and continue to go all in on clickbait (mind you I have just posted this ) because it still works.

  3. Longrider:

    Yes, I agree entirely. I’m not sure whether Clarkson’s apology was tongue in cheek or not. To me, it looked finely balanced, designed to further wind them up, but plausibly deniable as an outright piss-take.

  4. I’d be prepared to forgive Meghan for almost anything if, if, she were pretty.

    But honestly, I wouldn’t because she ain’t.

    I can only guess she has unsurpassed BJ technique.

  5. They’re “popular” because it’s the ultimate schadenfreude.
    They literally had it all – easy life pottering around, shaking a few hands, cut a few ribbons, oodles of money, access and influence, full time protection…
    And they’ve pissed it away in a huff with the mistaken belief that they’re owed better.

    I don’t read articles about the monarchy or courtiers or minor royals opening a tortoise sanctuary. I just don’t care.
    But I am enjoying watching the Ginger and his skank make a complete balls up of it.
