‘Absolutely nauseating’: Telegraph tarred & feathered online for claiming Meghan Markle’s outfit was ‘secret feminist message’
The Telegraph is being pilloried over a ragebait article which claims that the outfit Meghan Markle wore in an interview was really a “secret feminist message.”
On Sunday night, Markle and her husband Prince Harry spoke with Pakistani Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai about the impact coronavirus was having on young women.
Rather than discuss the content of the discussion, however, this particular Telegraph article, and promotional thread of tweets, instead opted to cover Markle’s “clearly carefully chosen” bodysuit from the Tuxe brand.
Meghan Markle's top didn't just look good - it delivered a feminist message 📩The Duchess looked sleek in monochrome colours, but it was her black bodysuit from Tuxe that was clearly carefully chosen to mark the occasion.https://t.co/ZUA9l4BlkL— The Telegraph (@Telegraph) October 13, 2020
The paper posted a poll asking whether the brand “helps minimise the gender pay gap and helps women shatter the glass ceiling” or not, while fawning over the Duchess of Sussex.Also on rt.com Better chance of seeing ‘Elvis on the Moon’? Twitter jeers Meghan Markle’s purported White House ambitions
A subsequent tweet made sure readers were aware that Tuxe customers get 10 pre-recorded sessions with Ianna Raim (who?) about “setting professional goals and turning setbacks into Ws,” before signing off the social media post with some pandering: “Because... world domination.”
I'm so glad to see her message was so important that all you talked about were her clothes. Such feminising.— InvadeRay (@Invaderay) October 14, 2020
