Stormzy tells Meghan Markle critics ‘get the f*** out of here’ – The Sun

STORMZY today blasted Meghan Markle's critics to "get the f*** out of here" amid the royal crisis.

The rapper praised the Duchess of Sussex for doing "her thing" as it was revealed the former actress and her husband Prince Harry would be quitting as royals and moving to Canada.

The Queen yesterday hinted at her sadness the couple would be stepping down, but last night accepted their decision after crunch talks at Sandringham.

But speaking to New York radio station Hot 97, the Big For Your Boots singer rubbished any criticism Meghan has received for the couple's decision to move.

He said: "Meghan is a sweet woman, she does her thing. I haven’t heard her say anything crazy and they just hate her."

Stormzy also referenced Eammon Holmes' rant last week, where the presenter told TalkSport: "I just find her incredibly irritating. I’ve never met her, but I look at her and think 'I don’t think I’d like you in real life'."

The rapper hit back, saying: "Bro, she’s black, that’s who you’re talking about. 'I just look at her and I think she’s got that arrogance.’

"I’m like, nah, she’s black man. Just get the f*** out of here."

Prince Harry accused the press of subjecting Meghan to a “wave of abuse and harassment” back in November 2016.

And some commentators have claimed the pair are fleeing their roles to escape racism.


Piers Morgan yesterday erupted at suggestions he was racist during a debate over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The GMB host – who has branded the couple as "spoiled brats" – locked horns with guest Afua Hirsch on Monday as she claimed the "narratives" he was citing were "racist."

However Priti Patel – Britain’s first female ethnic minority Home Secretary – said she does not think there has been any “racism”.

She told BBC Radio 5 Live: “I am not in that category at all where I believe there has been racism.

“I think we live in a great country, a great society, full of opportunity where people of every background can get on in life.”

Asked if the media had been racist, she replied: “I don’t think so, no.

“I certainly haven’t seen that through any debates or commentary or things of that nature.”

The comments come months after Holmes was drawn into a race row when he called her "uppity" because a viewer complained the word has racial connotations.

Eamonn had got an Ofcom complaint for discussing her attitude at Wimbledon when she refused to have photos taken of her in the Royal box.

Historically, the word 'uppity' was used in the US in the 19th century as an insult to black people who 'didn't know their place.'
