Last year, Meghan Markle won her legal battle against Associated Newspapers Ltd., the company that publishes The Mail on Sunday and The Daily Mail. You know, the one where a judge ruled that it wasn’t right The Mail on Sunday published parts of a private letter from 2018 that Meghan sent to her shady daddy, Thomas Markle, that they obtained from Thomas himself in 2019? That one. Meghan’s fight was all done and settled, with Associated Newspapers Ltd. agreeing to the judgment handed down to them. Except Prince Harry just opened up a new can of worms (he’s rich and fancy, so it’s an imported can of French silkworms) and filed a new libel complaint against Associated Newspapers Ltd.
It looks like the copyright infringement tussle between Associated Newspapers (ANL), the publisher of The Mail on Sunday, and Meghan Markle is over, and that The Mail on Sunday has put down their shank for now. Because as ordered by the court, they have printed a front-page note admitting that they lost their copyright infringement fight against Meghan Markle. But pulling the teeth out of a concrete shark statue using a pair of half-broken rusty pliers is probably easier than getting the editors of The Mail on Sunday to type out their “apology” to Meghan. The Mail on Sunday slipped a note about the lawsuit at the bottom of yesterday’s front page, as well as a little note inside. It reminds me of the time that the mother of a boy who kept making fun of me at school forced him to apologize to me, and he reluctantly let out an “I’m sowwy” under his breath, followed by a glare that screamed, “No, you little bitch I’m not, and you’re really gonna get it now!”
George Clooney Wrote An Open Letter To The Daily Mail, Asking Them To Stop Publishing Pictures Of His Kids
When it comes to famous people, some are a-ok with having their kid’s face snapped by the paparazzi (let’s just say they’re big fans of the letter K). Other famous types will gladly let people know that the only acceptable photo of their kids is one that has been pixelated so hard, it looks like a low-resolution Minecraft character. George Clooney likes seeing pictures of his kids show up in the tabloids about as much as he likes Batman & Robin: he doesn’t. And he recently wrote an open letter asking tabloid sites like The Daily Mail to stop posting pictures of his not-famous children.
The Crown. It very pretty. It kinda boring. I mostly fast-forwarded to the scenes with Princess Diana (played by Emma Corrin). Diana is portrayed as sympathetic, lonely, and very young. Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) is depicted as a stuffy old cheater who never loved his wife to begin with (um, fact?). This season has reignited interest in their shitty marriage and the Royal Family as a whole. And Britain’s Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, believes it has damaged their reputations.
Not that long ago, Aubrey O’Day made the bold claim that she believed Donald Trump Jr. was her soulmate. But yesterday, The Daily Mail published some pictures of Aubrey out walking her dog, that more than implied that maybe Aubrey’s true soulmates are FaceTune, and Photoshop, and Instagram filters. Well, Aubrey has seen the pictures, and to paraphrase Mariah Carey, Aubrey doesn’t know her. And Aubrey is dead set on proving the truth about what the real Aubrey O’Day looks like.
The five friends of Meghan Markle (an unproduced Lifetime series if I ever heard one) can all breathe easy today, because they won’t be publicly outed any time soon. Well, four of them, anyway. I’m sure Jessica Mulroney would have been positively giddy to get the Google alert that her name was trending again. But we’ll never know which of Meghan’s five friends spoke to People magazine last year in her defense, because a judge has decided their names won’t be published.
