Prince Harry has called out Jeremy Clarkson for his “hurtful and cruel” comments about his wife, Meghan Markle.
During Harry’s explosive tell-all interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby, the Duke of Sussex spoke on Jeremy’s tirade against his wife after he wrote for The Sun that he hates the Duchess of Sussex “on a cellular level."
In his interview with Tom, Harry accused the former Top Gear presenter of igniting “a global pandemic of violence against women” following his rant about the Suits actress.

Harry’s response to the claim was part of a larger discussion with Tom about the British media, calling it the “epicentre of so many of the problems across the UK”.
The Prince told Tom: “Um, but, you know, when we’re talking about accountability, you know, just recently, which I know you know about, the Jeremy Clarkson article, so not only did, what he said was horrific and is hurtful and cruel towards my wife, but it also encourages other people around the UK and around the world, men particularly, to go and think that it’s acceptable to treat women that way.
"Um, and you know, to use my stepmother’s words recently as well, there is a global pandemic of violent – violence against women.”
Viewers have since applauded the Duke for calling the TV presenter out.
