Several social media users expressed their disinterest in Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir.
Several excerpts from the Duke of Sussex’s book “Spare” have been made available by various media outlets. In them, Prince Harry made disparaging remarks about his father, King Charles, brother Prince William, and sister-in-law Kate Middleton, and his statements about his family did not sit well with several netizens, who expressed disdain for his book. Some people wanted to be spared from the book, while others used the hashtag #ShutUpHarry to tell him to shut up.
“Harry’s silly book ‘Spare’ (Oh puhlease spare us) could have been written about any ordinary family. These are the kinds of interactions [that] take place in most normal, healthy families. What a silly little boy he has now proven himself to be.”
Another user wrote:
“Poor deluded little Harry has no idea that normal families have the same issues. He believes himself to be special. #SpareUsHarry I am going to publish a book containing everything members of my family said to me and all the naughty things I did!”
“I thought the book was not about the prince he was born, but the ‘Man he had become.’ All I heard was the whining of a little boy who needs to grow up. When you become a man Harold, let us know. Actually, don’t. We’ve heard enough. #ShutUpHarold #SpareUs #PrinceHarryIsATraitor.”
A fourth person opined:
“The contents of #PrinceHarry’s book reveal a childish, desperate & sick man. No vulnerability, no accountability, [and] perhaps the longest hypocritical whineathon in history. I am grateful our late beloved Queen did not have to see this. #Spare #SpareUs #PrinceHarryhasgonemad.”
Despite the criticism leveled at Prince Harry, with some calling for him to be silenced, his supporters were overjoyed that his book was about to be released.
“I love the way Prince Harry is selling his book #SPARE. Brilliant.”
“Some will say #PrinceHarry overshared in #Spare BUT he has taken ANY power the media had over him and set it on fire. He took control. They can’t write a story he hasn’t wrote [sic] himself. Good and bad. And they will hate it. I love him. I love Meg. I love them.”
A third person wrote:
“Okay, this is impressive and exactly what true growth looks like. [People] don’t understand how marginalized communities love seeing transformation like #PrinceHarry #Spare Acknowledge the wrong, be genuinely sorry and do better going forward.”
A fourth user commented:
“Love them or hate them, you’re All talking about them!! Kerching #HarryandMeghanonNetflix #Spare #PrinceHarry.”
The highly anticipated book by Prince Harry will be released on Tuesday.
