Meghan Markle Fans Are Furious After Article Lumps Her In With Famous 'Narcissists'

As 2022 is preparing to come to a close, many people come to mind who defined this year in their own way, and Meghan Markle is certainly one of them.

Notably, the Duchess of Sussex was heavily criticized by British media after attending Queen Elizabeth II's funeral alongside her husband, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. Though Twitter showed its support of Meghan during the queen's mourning period in September, it didn't stop her haters, whom she even addressed on her podcast, "Archetypes."

In December, when the highly-anticipated Netflix docuseries "Harry & Meghan" became available to view (which broke Netflix streaming numbers, according to CNBC), critics and fans of Meghan alike could not keep her name out of their mouths.

And, as end-of-the-year think pieces are rolling out in mainstream media, Meghan continues to be a target. But, this time, one criticism took fans by surprise, which is why Twitter is in an uproar over it. 

Supporters of Meghan Markle call on Politico to apologize for dubbing her a narcissist

Kanye West, Donald Trump, Elon Musk, Elizabeth Holmes, and ... Meghan Markle? These are the faces of Politico's controversial op-ed "2022 Is The Year We All Finally Got Tired of Narcissists." Almost as soon as the article was published, news outlets reported on the puzzling fact that Meghan was seen amongst a group of "criminals, white supremacists, and racists," as one Twitter user said.

The outrage that Meghan was deemed a narcissist became apparent on social media, with fans demanding that the publication and writer Joanna Weiss apologize for the statements.

Weiss wrote in the piece: "But somewhere between the fifth and sixth hour of 'Harry and Meghan,' the new Netflix documentary series produced by the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex and filmed at their California mansion — which suggests that there is no one more in love, no one more socially conscious, no one more aggrieved — my natural sympathy for the couple started turning to irritation, and it occurred to me that ego has its limits."

"Politico and the writer should apologize for that appalling piece," one Twitter user penned. Another tweeted, "Yo politico, are you really calling a black woman who spoke up about media abuse a Narcissist?"

Politico and Weiss have yet to comment on the backlash.
