    Gabrielle Union And Other Celebs Are Showing Their Support For Meghan Markle Amid Bullying Accusations

    "Can we even IMAGINE what they put her through privately?"

    Meghan Markle has been making headlines as her and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey approaches, and she has quite a few celebrity supporters who definitely have her back.

    Earlier this week, the Sunday Times released a report stating that Meghan allegedly bullied members of the Kensington Palace staff citing unnamed sources and emails from palace officials.

    A representative for Meghan shot down the claims, writing, "The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma."

    Meghan and Harry's lawyers even went as far as to claim the Sunday Times were "being used by Buckingham Palace to peddle a wholly false narrative."

    And now, Meghan's celebrity friends and former colleagues are coming to her defense.

    Meghan's longtime friend Gabrielle Union made her thoughts very clear, responding to the Times article with just a "Sure, Jan" GIF.

    Meanwhile, the ladies of The View — Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, Meghan McCain, and Sara Haines — all proved to be Team Meghan during a scathing discussion:

    "I think it's ridiculous on a lot of different levels...You always have to ask, 'Who is benefiting and what do people gain by making a specific subject look bad? Right now, they're trying to make Meghan Markle look really, really bad...Why are these things coming out right now? They're coming out because there's a big Oprah interview that's probably going to make the Palace look really bad," Meghan McCain said, adding that she didn't think these claims were as important as claims against Prince Andrew.

    Jameela Jamil also shared her thoughts about the situation, tweeting, "IF THIS IS WHAT THE ROYAL FAMILY IS COMFORTABLE DOING TO A HEAVILY PREGNANT WOMAN PUBLICLY....can we even IMAGINE what they put her through privately?"

    IF THIS IS WHAT THE ROYAL FAMILY IS COMFORTABLE DOING TO A HEAVILY PREGNANT WOMAN PUBLICLY.... can we even IMAGINE what they put her through privately? They seem terrified. Her interview hasn’t even aired yet. What are they covering up? The stench of their desperation is rotten.

    So lemme just get this straight. The palace were fine with all of Meghan’s “bullying” for years and years until a few days before they fear she may out them publicly. Seems like a legit claim. Maybe Andrew didn’t go to Pedo island with Epstein, maybe it was MEGHAN DRESSED AS HIM!

    Chrishell Stause praised her followers for supporting Meghan but says she was shocked to discover how many negative comments were posted on the page of a news outlet.

    My timeline is very pro Meghan Markle which I love. But I just scrolled some of the comments on a news site’s post & it was almost shocking that people hate her so much. I worry about people’s sanity who can attach so much hate to someone they dont know. 🤯

    Meghan's friend of 22 years, Lindsay Roth, who was a bridesmaid in the royal wedding, expressed her support in a touching Instagram post.

    Meghan's former Suits colleague, writer Jon Cowan, also shared his thoughts while responding to a tweet that suggested that both Meghan and the Palace are "awful people."

    It’s also possible the Duchess of Sussex is a good person thrust into an unimaginable world. Having spent 3 years working with her in her pre-Duchess days, I saw a warm, kind, caring person. I know nothing of her current situation but she gets the benefit of the doubt in my book. https://t.co/7JD3ig6tws

    Chance the Rapper came to Meghan's defense, expressing his anger about the situation.

    Do y’all find yourselves getting mad as HELL every time they talk sideways about the Duchess Meghan?

    Even Vice President Kamala Harris' niece Meena Harris took to Twitter to call out Meghan's critics:

    Keep Meghan Markle's name out of your damn mouth. You are racist.

    And Denise Welch recently said she's "never been so passionately in support of two people she's never met" adding that she is "absolutely horrified by the vilification" of Meghan and Harry.
