Patrick J. Adams Defends Meghan Markle After Racist Tweet from Politician

US politician SPARKS OUTRAGE after posting 'racist' photo of Meghan Markle as Cheddar Man

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 reportedly posted 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.

Nehlen has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as "a defiant mouthpiece for the racist "alt-right", and in Janaury was suspended from Twitter for a week for violating rules banning anti-Semitic content.

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.
