Meghan Markle's 'Suits' Costar Called Out The Royal Family & Defended Her

"Find someone else to admonish, berate and torment."

Patrick J. Adams came to the defence of Meghan Markle, his costar on Suits, and called out the royal family for their treatment of her.

He posted a series of eight tweets and started it off with how Markle was "enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful and supportive" from her first day on the show.

Adams noted that she has always been a powerful woman and was never afraid to speak up or defend herself or the people she cares for.

"It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, clickbaiting vitriol spewed in her direction," he said.

He then ripped into the royal family and said it's "OBSCENE" for them to promote accusations of bullying made against Markle.

She has denied the claims but Buckingham Palace said it will investigate allegations that Markle bullied a former aide.

According to Adams, the timing of the accusations is an example of how shameless the royal family is and he called it an institution that has "outlived its relevance, is way overdrawn on credibility and apparently bankrupt of decency."

He then told them to find someone else to berate and torment.

"My friend Meghan is way out of your league," Adams said.

An Oprah Winfrey interview with Markle and Prince Harry is airing on TV on March 7.
