Britain … Two police officers fired for offensive comments about the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle

Two British police officers have been fired for making racist comments about Meghan Markle, the wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex.

And according to Britain’s BBC network, Meghan managed to get them fired after they exchanged “inappropriate” comments about her via WhatsApp.

Meghan Markle was described as an “anti-black cartoon character” by two police officers.

The investigation team looked into messages written by Sokdev Gere and Paul Hayford, both from Bethnal Green Police in east London, via a WhatsApp group in 2018.

The commission concluded that the two had committed “gross misconduct”.

Authorities have learned more details about the racist messages, one of which included a racial slur against the Duchess of Sussex shortly before her wedding to Prince Harry.

Maurice Cohen, head of the investigative unit, said the letters sent by the two contained “biting and discriminatory insults against a number of people, some of whom belong to the local community” in which they work.

They were also accused of “failing to report offensive messages sent by other members of the group” via WhatsApp.

At a previous hearing, Cohen said, “The messages from this group have done a lot of damage to the reputation of the Metropolitan Police as a whole.”

He noted that the content had been sent to the WhatsApp group chat “over a long period of time” and that Gere and Hefford should have found the “unacceptable nature” of these messages.
