'It Is Bonkers': Prince Harry Questions The First Amendment, Twitter Explodes In Reaction
While he may be living in the United States, it seems like Prince Harry hasn't embraced all things American.
The Duke of Sussex is underfire after his remark on Dax Shepard’s podcast “Armchair Expert” regarding the First Amendment.
"I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers," Harry said.
"I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time. But, you can find a loophole in anything. You can capitalize or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said,” Harry reportedly said.
The 37-year-old, who lives in Santa Barbara, Calif. with wife Meghan Markle, was quickly criticized as Twitter exploded in reaction.
One user wrote, "For my American friends. Prince Harry’s inability to understand the 1st Amendment is not a reflection on the excellent education he received at Eton but the result of his own limited intelligence. For my British friends here is the 1st Amendment which H is unable to comprehend."
Brexit leader Nigel Farage opined: "For Prince Harry to condemn the USA’s First Amendment shows he has lost the plot. Soon he will not be wanted on either side of the pond."
"Don’t let the door knob hit you, Windsor," Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted.
Another user wrote, "This is why July 4th is referred to as Losers Day in your homeland."
As OK! previously reported, this is not the first time Prince Harry has angered someone on Shepard's podcast.
"Harry's the victim again on Dax Shepard's podcast. Reveals he and Meg pretended not to know each other in a supermarket and that although he was born into privilege now believes 'you may start in one place but you can change in time.' So his 16-bathroom home isn't privilege," royal journalist Angela Levin harshly tweeted.
Levin was not done with her comments on the royal and quickly backed it up with a followed-up tweet, "Harry is suffering from 'genetic pain, YET he's got Meghan, a child, countless ways to earn money YET he keeps on cruelly complaining about his family while demanding their money and to keep his titles. So much moaning for a rich boy."
At this time, Prince Harry has made no additional comments on the matter.
