Harry—who is married to Meghan MarkleAnd shares two children Archie Harrison2. Lilibet Diana “Lili”, 5 months, with the Duchess of Sussex—also discussed how a “small group of accounts are allowed to create a huge amount of chaos online and destruction and without any consequence whatsoever.”
According to an October report released by Bot Sentinel, a platform that tracks “inauthentic accounts and toxic trolls,” 83 accounts backed by 187,631 followers, “were responsible for approximately 70% of the original and derivative hate content targeting Harry and Meghan, Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Twitter.”
Harry accused British journalists, besides promoting hate and propagating lies, of also “interacting with and amplifying it.” After Harry and Meghan had announced last year their intention to resign as senior working royals, he then pointed to “Megxit”, an online term.
“In fact the term—maybe people know this, maybe they don’t—but the term Megxit was or is a misogynistic term,” he said. And it was started by a spammer, who was amplified through royal correspondents.
