In what will likely be the biggest feud of 2020, British chain store Poundland has hit out at transgender television presenter India Willoughby for calling Meghan Markle a “Poundland Diana.” 576 more wordsTrans TV star India Willoughby calls Meghan Markle a ‘Poundland Diana’ and it seriously backfires — PinkNews – Gay news, reviews and comment from the world’s most read lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans news service
I’m with Poundland on this one, because it’s offensive to Meghan in the same I’m-pretty-sure-this-is-racially-biased way everyone has been offensive to Meghan recently (why isn’t Kate called Poundland Diana? She shops cheaply too) and offensive to us plebeians who shop at Poundland (yo!) by implying it’s bad in some way.
But I’m actually legitimately impressed by Poundland’s response:
“Supportive of trans people” is a REALLY low bar for a company to step over, obviously, but I appreciate it.
