Folks, we really didn’t think it was possible, but somehow, Meghan Markle’s awful family got even messier this week.

And just when we were convinced the situation couldn’t get any more ridiculous, the Markles went ahead and dragged George Clooney into it.

To be fair, Clooney willingly waded into this swamp when he compared Meghan to Princess Diana.

But he probably never imagined his stern warning to the British press would lead to such a harsh rebuke from Meghan’s loser father and half-sister.

First, Samantha Markle lashed out at Clooney:

“Hey Looney Clooney! Your lawyer wife should have taught you not to make statements without full facts,” she tweeted.

“I doubt #GeorgeClooney would ghost his mother for no legitimate reason. Be quiet Georgie.”

Now, it’s Thomas’ turn, and as you may have guessed, his remarks are just as asinine.

Speaking with TMZ, Tom blasted George’s comments as "frustrating" and "irresponsible."

The site reports that Thomas took Clooney’s remarks "as a dig" and encouraged the actor to "do a little research before he talks about Meghan and her father."

It seems the part of Clooney’s comments that really got under Thomas’ skin had to do with a letter the elder Markle received from Meghan.

As you may have heard, Thomas gave Meghan’s letter to a tabloid, and the whole world wound up reading the Duchess of Sussex’s private comments.

"I can’t tell you how frustrating that is, just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father," Clooney said during a recent press conference to promote his new series, Catch-22.

"She’s getting a raw deal there, and I think it’s irresponsible and I’m surprised by that."

Meghan Markle: Bumpin!

As TMZ points out, it seems that George’s comments are aimed more at the press than at the Markles.

Still, Thomas is the one that made the letter public, so it’s not hard to see how he might interpret the comment as shade.

Along with his wife, Amal, Clooney attended Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry back in May.

Sources say the couples are close, and Amal has helped Meghan acclimate to life in London.

So it’s no surprise to see George sticking up for Meghan.

Of course, you don’t need to be her BFF to know that Meg’s family sucks.

UPDATE: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Thomas sold the letter to The Daily Mail but we have since been informed that no money exchanged hands.

The Hollywood Gossip apologizes for the error.
