Meghan Markle's Suits co-star Patrick J. Adams has come to her defense after a racist tweet from U.S. politician Paul Nehlen, who reportedly (opens in new tab) shared a photo of Meghan and Prince Harry with the caption, "Honey, does this tie make my face look pale?"

Adams called Nehlen a "sad and sick man" and said that his former co-star has "more power, strength, honour and compassion in her fingernail than you'll ever know in this lifetime."

Meghan and Adams enjoyed a close relationship on the Suits set, and it's nice to see him defending her against these disgusting remarks. In the meantime, Nehlen's twitter account has been suspended after additional reports (opens in new tab) of antisemitism.
