If you were anything like us, then you were glued to your TV and your jaw was on the floor during the Oprah with Meghan and Harry interview on Sunday night. As Markle detailed what royal life was like for her, many people sympathized with her plight and showed her support online. But, as they often do, the haters also took the opportunity to rear their ugly heads.
The criticisms online from the Duchess’ detractors are aimed at minimizing her experience and under-stating the extreme nature of her situation. We won’t name names here, because we refuse to give them anymore air time, but a number of the critics were white women who thought the Meghan was being dramatic and needed to cry a river.
However, for every hater, there was a celebrater. The support for the Duchess came in droves on social media with one standout being a close personal friend. Serena Williams penned a beautiful message of encouragement for Meghan and showed what sisterhood and solidarity is all about…
In addition to the tennis champ, folks on Twitter flooded timelines with their positive messages and love.

It’s about race.
And when they say it’s not about race?
It’s about race.
What Harry & Meghan took on last night was huge.
Takes tremendous courage to shine a light in the oldest & darkest corners of institutionalized racism.
I only hope that their family stays safe. @Oprah

Remember the people taking up for the royal family today regarding Meghan Markle. They’re all telling on themselves. They aren’t mad about the racist story. They’re mad it’s being told. They feel betrayed. Think about that. The nerve. Privilege.

Prince Harry (cause he lives up to the title on every level ) walked away from everything to protect his family and make sure Meghan was truly safe and happy .now that is a real prince. Making their own living is not anything the royals have ever done before
