Karl Stefanovic and 60 Minutes have been widely criticized for & # 39; race baiting & # 39; from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in a & # 39; race to the bottom & # 39; segment of the royal pair.
The controversial segment, which made headlines worldwide when a preview was broadcast last week, has slammed shut due to its & # 39; racism & # 39 ;, shame and hatred.
The show was strongly focused on criticism of the duchess, including her clothes, personality, her supposed social climbing and her & # 39; glow & # 39 ;.
Words like & # 39; devil & # 39 ;, & # 39; monster & # 39 ;, & # 39; hypocrite & # 39 ;, & # 39; manipulate & # 39 ;, & # 39; abuse & # 39 ;, & # 39 ; lies & # 39 ;, & # 39; dirty war & # 39; and & # 39; Markle debacle & # 39; have been thrown around.
Andrew Morton, a former palace insider told the program that parts of the press saw the duchess as a version of the antichrist, and said the & # 39; Meghan bashing & # 39; has gone too far.
Duchess Meghan Markle has been criticized for her clothing, her personality, her alleged social climbing and her & # 39; glow & # 39;
Karl Stefanovic was beaten for the 60-minute controversial segment broadcast on Sunday evening
& # 39; What the hell has Meghan done? & # 39; Stefanovic asked.
& # 39; Meghan appears to be a version of the antichrist as far as Fleet Street is concerned, & # 39; Mr. Morton replied.
& # 39; And it is almost a royal right of passage that you have to go through. & # 39;
Stefanovic also interviewed controversial English media personality Katie Hopkins, described as & # 39; shameful & # 39; for her view of the duchess.
But Hopkins refutes claims that she is racist towards Meghan Markle.
& # 39; No matter how colorful the British royal family has always been, their whiteness has dominated and that brings us to a sensitive subject, & # 39; said Karl in the voice-over.
Mrs. Hopkins said it & # 39; not a second thought & # 39; for her is to be racist when she criticizes Meghan.

& # 39; It only comes in the minds of those who are truly racist, never people like me, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I just observe … the dress is better on Kate, how she wears is better.
& # 39; So this racist thing is really old and tired, but I think it's just the way people say: & # 39; you should not criticize Meghan & # 39;. & # 39;
Former private secretary Patrick Jephson said he advised against Prince Harry to use racism for some explanation.
& # 39; I think the entire racial question is completely misleading. It is irrelevant to follow that line, & he said.
& # 39; If you take that position (racism), you might miss some more relevant reasons why she should know why Meghan is not so popular.

The segment was angryly condemned by fans, some called it & # 39; waste & # 39; because it offered a platform for racists and bullies
The segment was condemned by dozens of viewers, some of which & # 39; waste & # 39; mentioned and claimed it offered a platform for racists and bullies.
& # 39; So disappointed in 60 minutes for doing this puff pastry, welcome at the waste level, & # 39; wrote a person.
& # 39; The coordinated attempt to DESTROY Meghan Markle and drive her away from Prince Harry, #Stsherblackness driving the MOST of this VILE attack. If she wasn't half black, she would be AWESOME and every appearance would bring POSITIVE accolades, & another man wrote.
& # 39; Disgust @ 60Mins actually went ahead and gave well-known white supremacist Katie Hopkins air time in a tone-deaf, casually racist character killing piece on Meghan Markle. You should breed right away and try some real journalism. #ThingsWeShouldCancel, & # 39; someone else wrote.
& # 39; This # 60-minute piece about Meghan Markle is the biggest non-story ever. I do not understand the hatred for women and I do not understand why this opinion should be broadcast, & another comment.
& # 39; The hatred for Meghan Markle is absolutely absurd, & # 39; another commented.
& # 39; I am so disappointed that @ 60 minutes have reported this story about Meghan Markle! Doesn't she have enough BULLYING !! It's the media that created this! Why did you have to emphasize her aversion? We do not know what is happening behind those walls!, & Someone else wrote.
