Prince Harry has sparked outrage on Twitter after he said one of America's cherished founding principles, the "First Amendment," was bonkers, and he did not understand it.


Last Thursday, Prince Harry appeared on Dax Shepard's podcast. During the chat, Harry branded the United States Constitution's First Amendment as "bonkers," adding that he did not understand it.

Harry also criticized his father, Prince Charles, and grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's parenting, revealing that he suffered genetic pain and did not want to pass it down to his children.

Harry's comments and description of America's First Amendment were met with backlash from many tweets. Laura Ingraham reacted to a tweet about the Prince's comments and said, "Don't let the doorknob hit you, Windsor."

New York Times Bestselling author Candace Owens tweeted her response wherein she asked how many more interviews Harry and his wife will have before they achieve the privacy they're desperate for.


In his tweet, Brexit architect Nigel Farage said Harry's condemnation of America's First Amendment shows that he has lost the plot. Farage added that soon Harry would not be wanted on either side of the pond.

American-born Australian columnist Rita Panahi showed her disgust for Harry's comments by describing him as a tiresome flog, asking him to shut up.

If Harry used his brain now and then, he would realize it is not helpful to talk about his personal problems.


Veteran Navy intel officer Jack Posobiec did not seem surprised by Harry's comments. He said that Harry attacking America's First Amendment tells everything people should know.

Monica Crowley, a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, reacted to Daily Caller's post about Harry's comments by tweeting:

"America says Prince Harry is insufferable."


Meanwhile, Harry's criticism of his father's parenting was also met with backlash from a royal expert, Robert Jobson, who said Harry saying such things within weeks of his grandfather's burial seemed ungracious.

Jobson threw a jab at the Prince, saying that if Harry used his brain now and then, he would realize it is not helpful to talk about his personal problems, adding that he should support his father rather than talk about him.


British television personality Piers Morgan also slammed Harry's latest comments, labeling him a spoilt brat for speaking about his private life. He also criticized the royal for trashing Prince Charles publicly again.

Neither Buckingham Palace nor Prince Charles has reacted to Harry's latest comments, but American tweeps have clearly shown their displeasure with the Duke of Sussex.
