Republican candidate suspended from Twitter after posting racist Meghan Markle photo

Republican candidate suspended from Twitter after posting racist Meghan Markle photo

Businessman and GOP candidate Paul Nehlen has been accused of racism after superimposing a picture of a black ancient Briton onto a picture of Meghan Markle.

Britain's oldest complete skeleton - known as Cheddar Man - was unearthed more than a century ago in Gough's Cave in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset.

Adams called Nehlen as a "sick man".

He tweeted that the man should "get a life" and told him not to approach the Royal bride as "she's got more power, strength, honour and compassion in her fingernail than you'll ever know in this lifetime".

'Way above your weight class'.

Meanwhile, Markle and Adams became close friends after playing love interests Rachel Zane and Mike Ross on hit United States legal drama Suits. The two played the characters of Rachel Zane and Mike Ross, who were love interests in the series.

Nehlen posted the original tweet Friday which featured a picture of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Twitter users lined up to condemn Nehlen, who refused to delete the shocking image. Twitter, however, suspended the politician's account.

Meghan Markle's former Suits co-star has leapt to her defence after a USA political candidate targeted her in a racist tweet.

Although Nehlen's account has now been suspended, the image he sent has been widely shared on the social media site and prompted outrage.

The far-right activist hopes to challenge Paul Ryan for his congressional seat.

It's not the first time that racists have made Meghan Markle their target since her relationship with Prince Harry was revealed. The royal family has once issued a statement defending Markle against racial abuse.

A spokesperson for Kensington Palace declined to comment. Following the news of Meghan and Harry's engagement in November, the actor was quick to send a heartwarming tribute to his friend, branding Harry a "lucky man".
