On Tuesday, November 9, 2021, Meghan Markle was present at the online summit, The New York Times DealBook. She notably spoke about a way to fight harassment on Instagram. The Duchess of Sussex has offered to add a “Dislike” button on Instagram. Which, she said, could stem the tide of negative comments. “Adding a simple feature seems like such an easy fix … for this really unfortunate cycle which I think is having an unfortunate effect on women around the world,” she suggested.
Prince Harry’s wife therefore suggests other options besides “I like” or “I hate”. According to her, Instagram would not give enough alternatives. The social network would only provide the “Like” button and the possibility of making a comment. “So if you don’t agree with something, you have to comment on it in a really vitriolic way,” she told Andrew Ross Sorkin, editor of The Times.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are victims of the networks
Meghan Markle, 40, did not fail to give her advice to Sorkin and Mellody Hobson, co-CEO and president of Ariel Investments. Many other subjects were, of course, discussed at this summit, such as the recent political engagement of the Duchess of Sussex or even her darling sales businesses.
The Duchess of Sussex was alongside her husband, Prince Harry, on this trip to New York. In fact, the Duke of Sussex also spoke about media issues at Wired magazine’s RE: WIRED virtual summit. An understandable situation when we know that the Sussexes are among the victims of the toxicity of social media.
