Reviews are in! Harry and Meghan’s ‘vomit inducing’ Netflix spectacle gives ‘DISASTER’ new meaning

In a world divided on so many topics, it appears Netflix, for the low, low price of $100 million, has found something that viewers from around the world can agree upon: No one wants to hear from Harry and Meghan.

The rogue royals’ docuseries is receiving reviews not seen since Warren Beatty made “Ishtar” in 1987.

“A Royal pity party,” screamed the Wall Street Journal.

It “takes a lot of time to reveal very little,” the Hollywood Reporter lamented.

The expensive series is “a hypocritical attention grab,” and “a big snooze,” claimed The New York Post.

And Variety called it a “Royal rerun,” saying it “rehashes the Royal-family drama, one more time.”

With the release of the first three episodes of the Netflix series, Variety writes, “the Sussexes surprise us yet again, with just how narrow their vision of their fame is, how pinched and unimaginative their presence on the world stage has become,” adding that the dramatic duo seems “honor-bound to keep reciting their personal story until we eventually lose interest.”

“As part of their Netflix deal, Harry and Meghan have been seemingly forced into restaging the story of their courtship, wedding, and family feuds past the point that they, or anyone but diehard fans or haters, can still care,” Variety reports.

And it’s not just the U.S. press that is torching the drawn-out show.

On Twitter, Australian Sky News host Rita Panahi slammed the couple for a photo of a gaggle of paparazzi used to illustrate how “stalked” they were by the press.

According to Panahi, “the ginger and the whinger” chose a shot of “invited media for a Harry Potter film premiere,” taken five years before the couple met.

And a clip of Meghan recalling the first time she met Queen Elizabeth II caused British heads to explode.

“Rude Meghan Markle mocking the Queen and British Monarchy,” tweeted Margaret Thatcher’s former aide, Nile Gardiner. “Her appalling behaviour is an embarrassment to the Royal Family, and the United States as well.”

“Meghan is burning bridges on both sides of the Atlantic,” he added.

“Meghan claims she found the formality of the Royals ‘surprising,'” wrote Kelvin MacKenzie, editor for The Sun. “Why? When, ahead of meeting The Queen, Harry asked if she could curtsey. Meghan says; ‘I thought it was a joke.'”

“The only joke is a self-involved, clapped out actress making money out of people who can’t reply,” he fumed.

Piers Morgan called the couple “repulsive hypocrites” and the trailer for the series “vomit-inducing.”

And The Guardian headlined its review with, “so sickening I almost brought up my breakfast.”

The first three episodes, writes Lucy Mangan, dropped on Netflix “like a turd into a stocking.”

Back on American soil, the Wall Street Journal said, “A viewer really has to be on board the royal soap-opera bus not to be bored out of one’s mind by ‘Harry & Meghan.'”

Meanwhile, IndieWire called the docuseries a “six-hour Netflix vanity project,” saying it’s “a dull diary entry, not a documentary.”

And after aggregating the reviews of eight professional critics, Rotton Tomatoes gave the debacle a dismal 38% on its Tomatometer and an even worse 15% audience rating.

Yes, it seems Netflix has done the impossible: The Harry and Meghan docuseries has united the world in their dislike for an entitled, whiney duo who can’t seem to open their mouths without digging the hole of their own making even deeper.

Writer TechnicallyRon warned, “Remember if you say ‘meghan markle’ in the mirror three times Piers Morgan will appear and just start screaming until his nose bleeds.”
