As the world reels from Meghan Markle’s claims about what she endured as a member of the Royal Family, her former co-star from Suits, 39-year-old Patrick Adams, has a few words to say. Adams accused the British royal family of “tormenting” Markle and for being a “toxic, archaic, and shameless” entity that should never have mistreated Markle the way she said they did.

Patrick was born in Toronto, Canada but now lives in Los Angeles. On Twitter, the actor attacked the royals and shared all of his feelings about what they were doing to Meghan. He said Markle is his “kind” and “powerful” friend who never deserved the horrific treatment she endured as a member of the Royal Family. He referred to Markle as “kind, joyful and supportive” and the Royals as “toxic.”

“Meghan Markle and I spent the better part of a decade working together on Suits. From day one, she was an enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful and supportive member of our television family. She remained that person and colleague as fame, prestige, and power accrued. She has always been a powerful woman with a deep sense of morality and fierce work ethic and has never been afraid to speak up, be heard, and defend herself and those she holds dear. Like the rest of the world, I have watched her navigate the last few years in astonishment.”

He continued by describing her love story and how everything changed from there.

“She fell in love, moved to a new country, became a household name across the entire globe, and began the difficult work of trying to find her place in a family dynamic that can at best be described as complicated and at worst, seemingly archaic and toxic,” the Canadian actor wrote in the eight-tweet rant.

He then claimed that the British monarchy has “outlived its relevance” and needed to be updated with the times.

“It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, click-baiting vitriol spewed in her direction from all manner of media across the UK and the world, but I also knew that Meghan was stronger than people realized or understood and they would regret underestimating her. And then they welcomed Archie. And on any sort of decent planet, that would be a time to stop sharpening the knives and let these two people enjoy the magical early months and years of starting a family. But we don’t live on that planet, and instead, the hunt continued.

He added, “It’s OBSCENE that the Royal Family, who’s newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of “bullying” against a woman who herself was basically forced to flea [sic] the UK in order protect her family and her own mental health.”

“[In my opinion], this newest chapter and [its] timing is just another stunning example of the shamelessness of an institution that has outlived its relevance, is way overdrawn on credibility and apparently bankrupt of decency.”
