Meghan Markle Targeted In Racist Hate Crime

From the moment the world first learned that Prince Harry was dating Meghan Markle, racist trolls have been crawling out of the woodwork to spew their hateful bile.

These days, Harry and Meghan are engaged, so naturally, the world’s worst people have ramped up their efforts to frighten and harass the couple.

The Guardian is reporting today that Scotland Yard is investigating an envelope of white powder that was mailed to Kensington Palace and addressed to Harry and Meghan.

Police are treating the incident as a racially-motivated hate crime.

Investigators suspect that the envelope contained anthrax, but they have yet to release the results of a toxicology test.

Of course, even if it turns out the powder is something far less harmful, the fact remains that the perpetrator intended to scare Harry and Meghan, to make them feel unsafe in their own home.

Sadly, this incident isn’t entirely surprising.

It’s hard to believe – especially given how beloved she is on this side of the pond – but some Brits are not happy about the idea of Harry marrying Meghan.

Some say it’s because Meghan is divorced.

Others claim it’s because she’s an actress.

And a surprising number just come right out and admit they’re racist.

We suppose their honesty would be refreshing if they’re bigotry wasn’t so nauseating.

A recent collection of comments posted on the Daily Mail‘s website in response to an article about Harry and Meghan gives you an idea of the sort of vitriol that’s at work here:

“A DIVORCEE BARELY a Z-list actress!” wrote one caps-loving psychopath.

“This is going to be a JOKEfest of a SHAM wedding!”

“CAN’T STAND THE WITCH SHE IS GOING TO BE THE DOWNFALL OF THE ROYAL FAMILY!!!” remarked another level-headed gent.

“An almost 40-year-old divorcee who appears used up, tongue hanging out and slapping high fives and taking selfies along her carriage route,” another basement-dweller wrote of Meghan.

You get the idea.

These people seem unaware that the Church of England literally only exists because of a divorce, but there’s no point in arguing with them, anyway.

Living well is the best revenge, and it doesn’t get much better than life as a princess.

LeBron James: Victimized in Graffiti Hate Crime

On Thursday, LeBron James will square off against Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and the rest of the Golden State Warriors in the first game of the 2017 NBA Finals.

Sadly, today the basketball legend is comforting his family after being the target of a revolting hate crime.

TMZ is reporting that a Los Angeles home owned by James was spray-painted with the n-word sometime last night.

A police report indicates that the word was scrawled on an outer gate, which has led investigators to conclude that the perpetrators never actually crossed James’ property line.

Of course, that’s probably small comfort to James’ wife and three children today.

The graffiti has been covered up, but not before it was seen by several stunned residents of the Brentwood community.

Sources say James bought the house in 2015, and while he spends a lot of time there in the off-season, it is not his family’s permanent residence.

At the time of the incident, James was already in the Bay Area, gearing up for his team’s matchup against the Warriors.

the LAPD is investigating the matter, and is reportedly treating it as a hate crime.

A source close to James who preferred not to be identified lashed out at the perpetrators in an interview with ESPN:

“It’s ignorance, that’s what it is,” says the insider.

“Unfortunately in 2017 people still think the way they do. I can’t say it’s surprising given what’s happened in this country the last eight months.”

The source added:

“You can be a titan of industry, you can be a community leader, you can be the best at what you do and they can cut you down to just, ‘You’re black.'”

Though he remains one of the most beloved figures in NBA history, James has drawn criticism from extremists for voicing his dissatisfaction with the country’s current political climate.

James has yet to comment on the crime, and will likely hold off on issuing a statement until after tomorrow night’s game.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
