Meghan Markle's on-screen love interest and off-screen close friend, Suits star Patrick J Adams, is not here for nasty comments about the bride-to-be. The actor took to Twitter over the weekend to gracefully shut down a racist tweet by US Republican politician Paul Nehlen.
The politician tweeted out a since-removed image of Prince Harry alongside Meghan, whose face was replaced by an image of Cheddar Man. For those who don't know, 'Cheddar Man' is one of England's oldest complete skeletons and last week it was revealed he had dark skin and blue eyes.
Nehlen captioned the photo "Honey, does this tie make my face look pale?"
Patrick immediately weighed in, without re-tweeting the offensive image, and called Nehlen a "sad and sick man with no sense of shame or class."
"Oh @pnehlen - you’re a sad and sick man with no sense of shame or class," he wrote. "Get a life. And don’t go anywhere near MM - she’s got more power, strength, honor and compassion in her fingernail than you’ll ever know in this lifetime. Way above your weight class."
Nehlen's account has since been removed from Twitter, a fact Patrick celebrated by tweeting a simple set of emojis.
Patrick also used social media to show his support of Harry and Meghan's engagement when the official announcement was made.
He playfully re-tweeted Kensington Palace's official announcement with the caption: "She said she was just going out to get some milk..." before sharing a more heartfelt sentiment.
"Playing Meghan’s television partner for the better part of a decade uniquely qualifies me to say this: Your Royal Highness, you are a lucky man and I know your long life together will be joyful, productive and hilarious," he wrote. "Meghan, so happy for you, friend. Much love."
While the official guest list for the Royal Wedding is yet to be confirmed, it is believed Meghan's Suits co-stars will all be in attendance.
