Meghan Markle has been called a “narcissist” on par with Donald Trump, Kanye West, Elizabeth Holmes and Sam Bankman-Fried in a new Politico op-ed.
The piece, titled “2022 Is The Year We All Got Tired of the Narcissists,” suggests that, for people like Markle, in 2022: “Some of them got their looks and some of them got worse: our indifference.”
Author Joanna Weiss noted that she was drawn to the likes of Markle and Prince Harry, but the couple’s Netflix documentary Harry and Meghan turned her against them.
He writes: “My natural sympathy for the couple began to turn to irritation, and I thought that selfishness has its limits. And it struck me that the overreach that led to the Sussexes’ mega-series is the same impulse that turned Elon Musk into a Twitter terror, that drove Ye to highlight outrageous behavior that crossed the line into blatant anti-Semitism, that sent him Bankman-Fried from the top of the world to a Bahamian prison.
A Politico writer called Meghan Markle a “narcissist” on par with Donald Trump, Kanye West, Elizabeth Holmes and Sam Bankman-Fried in a year-end story.
Weiss allows the royal couple to have legitimate complaints, though “Even sympathetic critics have been irritated that there isn’t much new here, beyond vanity.”
The piece admits that Sussex’s narcissism is more “benign” than Kanye West, Elon Musk, Donald Trump and Sam Bankman-Fried, but when it reaches the level of those three in particular, it can become dangerous. .
Meghan & Harry, directed by Liz Garbush, is the first project to emerge from the multi-year deal the couple signed with the streaming giant in 2020, shortly after they announced they were stepping down as working royals.
In September 2020, the couple announced a partnership with Netflix to work on a range of projects including documentaries, documentaries, feature films, scripts and children’s programs in collaboration with their company Archewell Productions.
In an official statement released at the time, they said: “Our focus will be on creating content that informs as well as gives hope. As new parents, it’s also important for us to do inspiring family planning.”
They added that Netflix’s unprecedented reach will help [them] share compelling content that unlocks action.”
In July last year, the duchess announced her first project with Netflix, an animated series called Pearl, in which she would take on the roles of creator and executive producer.
However, in May of this year, Pearl was pulled from the streaming platform as part of a wave of cuts caused by falling subscribers.
