Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock continues to use her platform to speak up and speak out against racism and gender inequality. During Oprah's interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Markle opened up about her experiences of racism and bullying at the hands of the royal family. After that, Pinnock shared a message of support for Markle on her Instagram.
"What people may wish to believe and view as a "privileged life" let this be a lesson to all of us," Pinnock captioned a photo of Markle. "When you become known to the public there is no safety net to protect you from what people can fire out and say about you. We witness this all the time, particularly concerning women and more to the core, women of colour. Meghan has been dragged from the start and we have all witnessed it. I praise her strength and determination for speaking out on her experiences showing the underlying racism lying within the royal establishment.
I praise Harry for standing by his wife and child and being brave enough to say enough is enough, we're out."
"As it's international women's day, I wish to send my love and support to Meghan. Too often we disregard a women's emotions and mental strength. No more. Today, I urge anyone within a position where by they feel silenced, underrated, overlooked or less than to speak up and speak out. It was the best thing I ever did and I know there are women all around the world holding pain within, out of fear of not being heard and taken seriously. We owe it to each other as women to stand together and put a stop to gender inequality and race inequality. 🖤"
