Twitter bans GOP contender for racist tweet targeting Meghan Markle

US politician SPARKS OUTRAGE after posting 'racist' photo of Meghan Markle as Cheddar Man

"Get a life. And don't go anywhere near MM - she's got more power, strength, honour and compassion in her fingernail than you'll ever know in this lifetime". The Cheddar Man is the fossil of the first modern Brit who had "dark skin".

Paul Nehlen, a Republican candidate hoping to unseat House Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin in 2018, was indefinitely suspended from Twitter this weekend, which resulted in a flurry of activity from far-right and alt-right activists online.

Republican politician and Donald Trump supporter Nehlen reportedly superimposed a picture of Cheddar Man - the oldest skeleton to be recently found in the United Kingdom and was revealed to have dark skin - onto Meghan Markle's face.

'Way above your weight class'.

A facial reconstruction of the remains of Cheddar Man, whose skeleton was found in Gough's Cave in Somerset, was conducted by DNA specialists from the Natural History Museum and University College London.

Johnny Manziel posting workout videos as he attempts comeback
Manziel joined the Cleveland Browns as the 22 player picked in the 2014 NFL Draft. I used to ask people all the time if they were hoping he'd make a comeback.

If anyone has Meghan Markle's back, it's Patrick J. Adams, and not just because they starred together on Suits. The Daily Mirror called the tweet "racist", while the Sun described Nehlen as Markle's "Twitter troll". Nehlen quickly became viral, sparking outrage from both sides of the pond. But his candidacy has drawn derision from Republicans in the state and his Twitter posts have generated global outrage and condemnation. The reason for the suspension is unclear, but many speculate that it was because of his racist tweet against Markle.

Since then, Nehlen's account has been suspended by Twitter, possibly also because of anti-Semitism, according to The Washington Post. Earlier this year, the social media site cut Nehlen's access to his account for a week after he made a series of anti-Semitic posts.

A spokesperson for Kensington Palace declined to comment.

The actor has been very supportive of his former co-star since news of her engagement to Prince Harry was announced previous year, and that's not stopping anytime soon-particularly when it comes to online trolls.

Meghan, who is mixed-race, has received a torrent of racially-motivated abuse since announcing her engagement to Prince Harry.
