The other day, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a surprise visit to a charity called One25 in Bristol, and Meghan had an ~idea~. To write words of encouragement, or affirmations, on a bunch of bananas that were being delivered to sex workers:
Which is a super nice thing to do! But has naturally generated some controversy among the likes of Piers Morgan (who completely missed the point and said “Giving a sex worker a banana is clearly exposing them to potential mockery”) and Meghan’s sister Samantha Markle. Let’s just say she is DEEEEEEPLY unimpressed and used the opportunity to slam Meghan.
In a series of tweets, Samantha said, “I was hoping my sister would give them each a beautiful bouquet of flowers,words of strength, and enough money to change their lives. That is what #humanitarians do. Bananas? WTF.”
She continued with some major shade, writing “Maybe when she’s asking for the big spending allowance, Charles should just give her a banana with some writing on it instead of cash.”
And then naturally made it all about Meghan’s estranged relationship with their dad, Thomas Markle, writing “If she can say ‘you are strong, you are brave, you are special’ on a banana to a sex worker, she can say ‘you are strong, you are wonderful, and you are special and I love you’ on a banana,… to our father. Just my humble opinion”
Welp. Glad to see everyone’s getting along!
