Judge Judy Drags Prince Harry Over ‘Spare’ Memoir
After the release of Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, Judge Judy slammed the prince and termed the royal’s book as him, “biting the hand that fed you.”
During a January 10 episode of Good Morning Britain, Judge Judy reacted to Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare. The 416-page book hit shelves on January 10 and garnered mixed reactions from across the globe. The judge didn’t want to comment on the prince’s book directly but admitted that if her family members had taken his route, she would be so mad.
“I will tell you that I would be furious and would think that that child or grandchild was a selfish, spoiled, ungrateful one. That’s what I would feel and be really hurt,” she said. Judge Judy also called Harry’s move to write a book exposing his family a bit “disingenuous.”
The former family court judge told host Noel Phillips, “I think anybody — anybody with a brain — would see that it’s disingenuous.” She said that when asked to share her feelings if a family member had done what they had done, “It’s biting the hand that fed you. It’s unseemly.”
Judge Judy is not the only celebrity to slam Prince Harry for his memoir. CNN’s Don Lemon asked, “What exactly is he achieving by airing family dirty laundry?”
Candace Owens had a lot of negative reviews for the book and called Prince Harry despicable for working with the same media he condemns. “There is a special place in hell reserved for people like Prince Harry.”
Piers Morgan accused the Duke of Sussex of “blowing it with his entire family.” During the Piers Morgan Uncensored Show, he spoke about the book.
“There’s no amount of money in the world that would make me do this to my family […] There’s one thing to do with this book, which is rather than buy it and feather his greedy little nest, do what I’m going to do right now, take Spare and chuck it where it belongs—in the bin.”
Many people have voiced their disagreement with Prince Harry’s decision to write and publish this memoir, but according to him, he is just speaking about his experiences in life.
In an interview with 60 Minutes, Harry explained, “I will sit here and speak truth to you with the words that come out of my mouth. Rather than using someone else, an unnamed source, to feed in lies or a narrative to a tabloid media that literally radicalizes its readers to then potentially cause harm to my family, my wife, my kids.”
In the memoir, Prince Harry speaks on several moments, including the heartbreaking moment he learned of his mother, Princess Diana’s death.
“What I do remember with startling clarity is that I didn’t cry. Not one tear. Pa didn’t hug me. He wasn’t great at showing emotions under normal circumstances, how could he be expected to show them in such a crisis? But his hand did fall once more on my knee, and he said: It’s going to be OK. That was quite a lot for him. Fatherly, hopeful, kind. And so very untrue.”
Harry also spoke about his time in the army and the people he had to kill to protect his country from the enemy.
“While in the heat and fog of combat, I didn’t think of those twenty-five as people. You can’t kill people if you think of them as people. You can’t really harm people if you think of them as people. They were chess pieces removed from the board, Bads taken away before they could kill Goods.”
