After Australian TV network
chairperson Ita Clare Buttrose slammed Meghan Markle for being “deliberately
provocative”, ‘Today’ host Karl Stefanovich came out and issued a scathing
take-down of the Duchess of Sussex.
It’s no secret that Karl has
been brutely outspoken with his criticism of the former actress in the past.
And now, recently during a live broadcast cross to Nine reporter Tracy Waugh in
Manchester, where Prince Harry and his wife are due to attend a youth
summit this week, he slightly misquoted ABC chair Buttrose.
“Ita Buttrose said they’ve
turned into D-grade celebrities. That’s about right, isn’t it?” he asked
“Well, we’ve been hearing
locally here as well, guys, that some people say they’re not welcome here,” she
responded. “There’s a real divide in that support for Prince Harry and Meghan,
so we’ll see how tomorrow pans out.”
