British Prince Harry has come under fire for calling the First Amendment “bonkers” in a recent podcast interview on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast.
Harry made the statement on the podcast while discussing what he described as the media “feeding frenzy” that came up when he was still staying at Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills mansion, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
According to the report, Harry said, “I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers.
“I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time.
“But, you can find a loophole in anything. You can capitalize or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said,” Harry reportedly said.
Both Americans and Britons have spoken out on social media against the British Prince who’s now based in the United States with his family.
Brexit leader Nigel Farage took to Twitter to slam the Duke Of Sussex, “For Prince Harry to condemn the USA’s First Amendment shows he has lost the plot. Soon he will not be wanted on either side of the pond.”
