More Trolls Come For Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle
A big U.K. celebrity tabloid made an unexpected announcement on Monday.
They launched the #HelloToKindness campaign, calling for readers to be kinder to Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, and celebrities in general and "champion positivity."
Elle reports that there has been a surge in online trolls attacking Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, especially on Kensington Palace's social media accounts.
A source says, "Over the course of last year, with hundreds of thousands of comments, there were two or three that were violent threats."
Elle says that the negative comments are often sexist, racist, and classist—with two young duchesses in the royal family, and one of them being a woman of color.
A royal insider told Elle.com that Meghan is aware of the comments, but doesn't read the gossip.
One source added that Meghan finds it "frustrating" and "stressful" “to have no voice."
They added, "She’s always relied on her own voice to stand up for others, and for herself."
