George Clooney Defends Friend Meghan Markle: ‘She’s Been Pursued & Vilified’

George Clooney is coming to Meghan Markle‘s defense after seeing the negative way she can be treated by the media.

The 57-year-old actor went as far as to compare Meghan‘s life to that of Princess Diana‘s tragic story.

“They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified,” George said during a Hulu panel, according to Who magazine.

He added, “She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and it’s history repeating itself. We’ve seen how that ends.”

“I can’t tell you how frustrating that is, just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father, she’s getting a raw deal there and I think it’s irresponsible and I’m surprised by that,” George concluded.

George and his wife Amal Clooney attended Meghan and Prince Harry‘s wedding last May and count the couple as close friends.
