Meghan Markle news: Duchess of Sussex trolled more online than Piers Morgan AND Trump | Royal | News
The Duchess of Sussex was trolled more online than both Trump and former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan last year. Both men are known for their controversial online presence and have both been known to make comments about Meghan.
However, according to a recent study, both men have less negative mentions online than Meghan.
Fifty percent of tweets about Mr Morgan were negative compared to 48 percent of tweets about Trump.
In the last few months, both figures have been under a lot of heat for their controversial opinions and their tweets.
The study analysed 500,000 recent tweets that have mentioned celebrities worldwide to reveal who is the most trolled.
The data looked at the sentiment of each post to discover what percentage of those included positive messaging versus negative.
The study also looked at a ratio based on the number of tweets that mentioned each celebrity.
Mr Morgan is fourth on the most trolled list of celebrities, while Trump is sixth.
One user said of Mr Morgan in January last year: “Piers Morgan is absolutely hateful a******e and should be taken off TV.
“He constantly interrupts people making their point and ‘ties” if they interrupt him.
“He is a self-deluded narcissist.
Another said of Meghan back in January: “I hate Meghan Markle…I hate any woman that marries into a family, decides she can’t get on with them and proceeds to tear the family apart so that she can have her way, and screw everyone else because all that matters is her.”
One user said of Trump: “Donald Trump us an idiot wrapped in a moron smothered in imbecile sauce and served with a side of stupidity.”
According to the site, online trolling is on the rise with 23 percent of Brits being the target of cyber abuse.
Those aged between 18-24 are the most likely to be cyberbullies.
However, celebrities are often at the centre of the criticism.
