Veteran Indian actress and talk show host Simi Garewal on Monday said she does not believe a word Meghan Markle said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey and also accused her of playing the victim card.
Simi called Meghan "evil". Last year, the former "Suits" star along with her husband Prince Harry stepped back from their roles as members of the British Royal Family and moved to the US state of California. The Indian actress also said she feels that Meghan, whose mother is African American and father is white, is using the race card to gain sympathy.
#OprahMeghanHarry I don't believe a word Meghan says. Not a word. She is lying to make herself a victim. She is using the race card to gain sympathy. Evil.— Simi Garewal (@Simi_Garewal) March 8, 2021
In the sensational interview, Meghan accused the British Royal Family of racism, lying, and pushing her to the brink of suicide.
Leaving Twitterati divided, many netizens have come out in support of Meghan, while others agreed with Simi.
Yes !!! It's a shame when people misuse this card. It brings down the entire movement for a lot of deserving people. I have absolutely no sympathy in this case. They didn't need to dish dirt like this on an Institution for their own gain— Abhina Pradeep (@abhi197) March 8, 2021
She is playing the victim card game because no 1 she knows she will never be near to throne so for her doing royal duties just waste of time & 2nd is she took the opportunity of lady Diana's condition & trying to trick every onc PERIOD— Anuska A Chatarjee (@justAnuska) March 8, 2021
Royal watchers had predicted all this. She took as much she could & ran away. Queen is a tough cookie with huge experience. After a few yrs prince will look like an idiot— Jayant Joshi (@JayantJ86269618) March 8, 2021
Many netizens opposed her take on the whole interview and claiming her to be lying.
I wonder how you can say this with so much conviction unless you know either party at a very personal level? Whether she’s speaking the truth or otherwise is anyone’s guess. But if we turn a few pages down the memory lane, Princess Diana too never felt any better either!— Sunny (@Sunny19405752) March 8, 2021
After what the Royal family did to Lady Diana, there is enough reason to believe Meghan. Frankly, it is not at all surprising. Infact, it is so difficult to understand this whole Royal family concept in the present times. However, Meghan is definitely very smart and brave.— Raj Krishna (@rk300777) March 8, 2021
Meghan and Harry got married on 19 May 2018 and were blessed with a son, Archie, in May 2019. The couple is now expecting a girl.
