Serena Williams: Meghan Markle Couldn't BE a Better Friend to Me!

by at .

This week, notoriously unlikeable twonk Piers Morgan launched a verbal attack on Duchess Meghan Markle.

He demanded that she "go back to America" if she was going to have the audacity to ask for privacy while attending her friend's tennis match.

Well that friend, Serena Williams, is speaking out, and she may have the best advice in the world when it comes to Piers and his ilk.

Duchess Meghan attended The Championships in Wimbledon, where her Serena Williams was playing against Kaja Juvan.

Serena is, in addition to being the greatest athletes on the planet, good friends with Meghan.

Unfortunately, what should have been a simple outing became controversial after a rumor surfaced.

The rumor claimed that Meghan had asked her protection officers to ask that people not take her photo.

She wasn't there as a member of the British royal family, but as a friend watching her friend play on the court.

E! News reports that, when they asked Serena if Meghan should ignore her haters and continue on, Serena Williams had a stunning reply.

Serena apparently "didn't know there was negative media out there."

To be clear, she knows that it regularly exists.

But she doens't pay attention -- not even to headlines.

"Any time I see her name attached to anything," Serena reveals. "I don't read it,"

Unlike the British press, who have had a field day printing insults and outright lies about the Duchess for years now, Serena has nothing but praise for Meghan.

"She couldn't be a better friend to me," Serena shares.

Even though she's a newly married royal and a new mother, Serena says that Meghan doesn't play games about being there to support her friends.

Serena notes: "Low moments, high moments -- she's always there."

"That's all I want to be to her," she expresses.

It's good that Meghan has famous friends who have her back -- just as she has theirs.

It wasn't just a few disgruntled fans who were allegedly asked to point their cameras in another direction that caused a stir.

Professional blowhard Piers Morgan went on an unhinged rant on Good Morning Britain.

(Really -- it's bad enough that he's allowed to speak at all, but do they really have to pay him for it?)

He demanded that Meghan "go back to America" if she wanted some privacy.

The brainless twonk's words struck a nerve with a lot of people -- including his own cohost.

For one thing, obviously, that's an absurd demand, particularly to make of a woman who just married Prince Harry and birthed his child.

But for another, Piers' words seemed eerily reminiscent of an all-too-common racial insult hurled at black people in America and in the UK: "Go back to Africa."

The fact that he chose to excoriate the royal family's only adult black member did not escape people's notice.

Meghan Markle Royally Waves

A lot of the tabloids that have invented nasty lies about Meghan have done so because she's black and she's American.

Racists (and brits with Anti-American sentiments) will click, and then the tabloids profit while the bigots get their daily fix of rage.

Serena has a good attitude about these things: if you know that it's negative ragebait, just don't click.

But that doesn't mean that you can't keep coming to THG for less malicious coverage.
