    Naomi Campbell Just Spoke Out About The Unfair Treatment Of Meghan Markle

    I stand with Meghan!

    Back in October, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, started paperwork to sue a UK tabloid newspaper after allegedly misusing private information against her.

    For clarity, the newspaper published a handwritten letter from Meghan to her father and omitted parts of the letter, which Meghan said was done to support her "negative" portrayal from the newspaper.

    Prince Harry has also filed a legal complaint against the tabloid and publisher, and at the time, released a statement speaking to the situation. "My deepest fear is history repeating itself," he said. "I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces."

    That same month, Meghan opened up during an interview with ITV for her documentary, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, and spoke about her struggles as a new mom and public figure.

    “Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant—you’re really vulnerable. So that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know?” she said. “Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay,” she continued. “It’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

    A lot of people have sided with the Duchess and have outwardly spoken to the targeted attacks the press has made on the royal family.

    Obviously the incessant attacks on Meghan Markle from certain figures in the media are bad for Meghan. But they are also bad for everyone with mental struggles they feel guilty about. Remember. It doesn't matter what you HAVE. It matters what you FEEL. Privilege isn't a vaccine.

    Well in a new interview with the Guardian, supermodel Naomi Campbell has stepped out to defend Meghan, saying that she's "really glad" that Meghan is taking action to defend herself.

    “When I heard [she was taking legal action], I was like ‘Bravo. Good for her,'" said Naomi. Now, anyone who's followed Naomi's journey for some time knows that she has had a rather interesting relationship with the media.

    Just this year, a tabloid referred to Naomi as “something of a drama queen, notorious for hurling jewel-encrusted phones and raging at her staff” with “four convictions of assault to her name”, according to Harper's Bazaar.

    While Naomi didn't come right out and say it, she did subtly suggest where she thinks the targeted attacks stem from. She added: "We all know what that’s about… I’ve seen how they treat Raheem Sterling, how they speak about Lewis Hamilton and Serena Williams. I don’t know how Meghan Markle deals with this and I’m really glad she’s taken action to defend herself.”

    No matter the reason, nobody deserves to be harassed by people for simply living their lives. Thank you Meghan for keeping it 100% real and not pretending everything is always OK!
