The picture superimposed by Nehlen was a reconstruction of the appearance of Cheddar Man, one of the oldest skeletons found in the United Kingdom, who experts believe had dark skin.
With the Cheddar Man a hot topic in social media, Nehlen jumped on the subject with disastrous results. He wrote on his Twitter account, "Oh @pnehlen - you're a sad and sick man with no sense of shame or class. Get a life". And don't go anywhere near MM - she's got more power, strength, honor and compassion in her fingernail than you'll ever know in this lifetime. "Way above your weight class". Patrick J Adams, who played Markle's on-screen husband in the popular legal drama, condemned Republican businessman Paul Nehlen after he reportedlyposted an edited image of Prince Harry's bride-to-be, who is biracial.
In a Tweet Sunday linking to a report by British tabloid the Daily Mirror, Nehlen defended the posting.
Nehlen refused to take down the photo amidst outrage from the public.
A U.S. politician who sparked outrage by posting a racist picture Meghan Markle on Twitter has had his account suspended.
Markle, who is a mixed race, has been targeted by racist comments since it was revealed past year that she is dating Prince Harry.
It might not be shocking to note that Nehlen is a Trump supporter, self-proclaimed "constitutional conservative", white supremacist, and member of the alt-right who has been backed by Steve Bannon in the last election, which he handily lost to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. The royal family has once issued a statement defending Markle against racial abuse.
A spokesperson for Kensington Palace declined to comment.
