British Reporter Victoria Mather Gets Dragged In Her Comments After Calling Meghan Markle ‘Five Clicks Up From Trailer Trash’ On Air

Social media is having a public gathering in the comments of British reporter Victoria Mather’s posts after she referred to Meghan Markle as “five clicks up from trailer trash” on air.

It happened while she was a guest on “MSNBC Live.” Mather said that Meghan has been “disrespectful” to the royal family and its protocol.

“I think what has really, really upset the British public is that Meghan Markle, who many people consider as only, you know, five clicks up from trailer trash, has actually tried to disrespect the queen,” Mather said. “And the queen is the most respected person, most respected woman, in the world.”

When she made the shocking comments, MSNBC anchor Lindsey Reiser immediately ended the interview.

After the clip of the interview started to go viral over the weekend, people flocked to Mather’s Instagram comments to voice their anger.

“Use your platform to uplift women. Don’t jump on the bandwagon of hate,” one person wrote.

“I love it when old, tired, dried out folks expose their hatred and racism. 5 clicks to obscurity,” another wrote.

Mather is a writer for the digital platform, Air Mail. Mather’s title at Air Mail is “chief travel correspondent,” but in September she wrote about the royal family for the publication — and used the words “trailer trash” in reference to Meghan, whom she dubbed the “Duchess of Excess,” according to BuzzFeed News.

“As for the reported feud between the duchesses, that was a story waiting to happen,” she wrote, in reference to numerous stories that ran in the British tabloids around that time. “Catherine comes from a stable, close-knit family. Meghan comes from a sadly dysfunctional family, leading to her being unpleasantly trolled as trailer trash.”

A lot of people pointed out that Mather’s comments are an example of why Meghan and Prince Harry decided to take a step back from their royal duties.

Mather has yet to publicly comment on the backlash.
