    Harry has long faced accusations of queerbaiting. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, he called the accusations "silly." Full story here.

    11. Meghan Markle was ignored by British citizens at Windsor Castle during the Queen Elizabeth II tribute:

    So this is Meghan Markle trying to shake hands with the British public. She gets ignored, laughed at and humiliated. This country has a rotten racism problem… & notice how they’re all middle aged white women? Daily Mail reading, racist Karens. Absolutely abhorrent behaviour.

    In the video, you can see some British citizens ignore Meghan, who tries to shake their hand. A lot of Brits resent Meghan and blame her for her and Harry’s decision to remove themselves from the royal family.

    12. Britney Spears opened up about her strained relationship with her sons in a now-deleted Instagram post.

    13. And lastly, Noah Beck faced backlash online after seemingly defending disgraced, demonetized content creator Andrew Tate:

    mind you noah beck is telling everyone to hear andrew tate out while this man got banned from not one, but TWO platforms because of how fucking disgusting he is

    Noah Beck said Andrew Tate — who has referenced women as property of men — has some "valid points." Noah's interview where he says this has been deleted.
