Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Supporters Rally Behind Meghan Markle, Call Out Racist Attacks Ahead Of Oprah Interview”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Supporters of Meghan Markle are rallying behind her after allegations that she had “bullied” staff were published days ahead of her and Prince Harry’s upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

Meghan said through a spokesperson that she is “saddened by this latest attack on her character,” after The Times of London published an article on Tuesday outlining claims by unnamed employees that the Duchess of Sussex had “humiliated” and “bullied” staff.

The spokesperson suggested that the article was intentionally published this week in an effort to undermine Meghan and Prince Harry, who are set to appear in a highly anticipated two-hour interview special with Winfrey on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. 

“It’s no coincidence that distorted several-year-old accusations aimed at undermining The Duchess are being briefed to the British media shortly before she and The Duke are due to speak openly and honestly about their experience of recent years,” the spokesperson told The Times in the article published Tuesday.

Many people charged that such wide focus in the media on bullying claims made against Meghan follows a long history of racist tropes in which Black women are perceived as being aggressive. Meghan, who has a Black mother and a white father, has long been the target of racist coverage.
