Prince Harry Sparks Massive Debate Online, Trends on Twitter Over First Amendment Comments

There are currently thousands of tweets about Prince Harry on Twitter right now and you may be wondering why.

It all stems from a quote the royal said while making an appearance on the “Armchair Expert” podcast, talking about the “feeding frenzy” that arose when he and Meghan Markle first moved to California.

“I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,” Prince Harry said. “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,” he added.
