With a juicy guest comment on Duchess Meghan, British moderator Clarkson stirs up a storm of outrage. As he apologizes, Prince Harry and his wife follow up on Netflix: These are courageous leaders.
With remarks about Duchess Meghan in a guest feature for The Sun tabloid, prominent British moderator Jeremy Clarkson unleashed a storm of outrage. The Independent Press Standards Organization media watchdog received more than 6,000 complaints against the 62-year-old man as of midday. That’s almost half the number in all of 2021. His daughter Emily, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and London Mayor Sadiq Khan also criticized the remarks.
Clarkson wrote about Prince Harry’s wife in a column for the “Sun” tabloid: “I hate her.” She also said that she dreams “of the day when she will be forced to march naked through the streets of every city in Britain while the crowds shout ‘Shame on you!’ yells at them and throws excrement at them. Meghan “obviously used some lively bedroom promises” to turn the reckless Harry into a bore. “Everybody in my generation hates them,” Clarkson said.
In response to the criticism, the moderator tweeted that he was “appalled that I caused so much pain.” He “awkwardly” referred to a scene from the “Game of Thrones” TV series, “and a lot of people didn’t like that.” He will be more careful in the future. In their six-part Netflix documentary, Meghan and Harry also settle scores with the British tabloid. According to commentators, various outlets had carried out a partly racist campaign against the former actress.
New Documentary Series “Living to Lead”
Die-hard Harry and Meghan fans, on the other hand, don’t have to wait long for supplies: the couple has already completed another project with the streaming service. Netflix released a first trailer for the documentary series “Live to Lead”, which will premiere on December 31. “Exceptional leaders reflect on their legacy and share messages of courage, compassion, humility, hope and generosity,” the trailer’s caption reads. “Inspired by the legendary legacy of Nelson Mandela, ‘Live to Lead’ highlights the core values, daily disciplines and guiding principles that leaders use to motivate others and create meaningful change.”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg (1933-2020), Greta Thunberg and Jacinda Ardern, among others, have their voices in the series. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are executive producers of the Nelson Mandela Foundation project, and Geoff Blackwell is credited as creator and director. The trailer may also indicate that the Sussexes will also be in the picture for the series.
“This was inspired by Nelson Mandela, who once said: ‘What matters in life is not the mere fact that we have lived,'” Harry says to the camera in the clip, before his wife adds: “It’s the difference we have.” made in the lives of others, that determines the meaning of the life we lead”. These are people who made brave choices, Harry continues at the end of the trailer. And Meghan adds: “To fight for change and become a leader,” before Harry concludes: “And to inspire the rest of us.”
