Wendell Pierce, Meghan Markle's former "Suits" co-star criticized the timing of her and Prince Harry's CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired on March 7.

He explained that it was insignificant compared to the globe's current COVID-19 pandemic and the deaths that had resulted from the spread of the virus.

The "Suits" alum shared during an interview with LBC radio, the day after the CBS interview, that 3000 people would die that day from COVID-19 as well as hundreds more in the UK.

He shared that at one point (before vaccines), he believed that the pandemic could have been an extinction event if treatment was not discovered. Pierce said to radio host, Shelagh Fogarty:

"We are in the midst of a pandemic, that at one point before these vaccines I thought could be an extinction event if we didn't figure out a way to stop it."

Pierce continued and shared that the first thing that did come to mind when he heard about the interview was the Shakespeare quote - full of sounds and fury, signifying nothing.

He added that amidst all the death the world had seen, that it was offensive and insensitive that everyone was complicit in the palace gossip.

Cowan wrote that he had worked with the duchess for 3 years before she was granted the title.

After the radio interview, he took to Twitter to clear up any confusion on their relationship. He shared that he was fortunate to wish her the best personally and shared that she always had a friend in him.

Markle's other colleagues were outspoken with their support for her when allegations of her bullying royal staff were published by The Times. Writer Jon Cowan wrote on Twitter:

"It's also possible the Duchess of Sussex is a good person thrust into an unimaginable world."

He responded to a tweet that has since been deleted that said, it was possible that both the people of Buckingham palace and Markle were awful people.

Cowan wrote that he had worked with the duchess for 3 years before she was granted the title and she had been a warm, kind and caring person. He shared he was giving her the benefit of the doubt.

Actress Janina Gavankar shared his sentiment. She took to Twitter to show her support for Markle. She wrote that Meghan was kind, strong, open, and not a bully.

Patrick J. Adams, her onscreen partner, wrote on Twitter that the treatment she faced was shameless, obscene, and bankruptcy of decency. He shared his support in a thread on Twitter.
