Wendell Pierce clarifies his criticism about Suits daughter Meghan Markle's Oprah Winfrey special

Pierce was quoted by The Daily Mail as criticizing Markle's Oprah Winfrey interview as "insignificant" considering the worldwide pandemic in an interview with a London radio station. "A couple of hundred people are going to die, even this hour, in the U.K.," he said in the interview. "It is quite insensitive and offensive that we are all complicit in this sort of Palace...gossip. In the midst of so much death, I think it is insignificant." But Pierce, who is currently living and working Budapest, Hungary, said the interview didn't play there and that his words were twisted by the British press. "My comments were about the obsession around the royal family and it shouldn't take priority over the deaths of the pandemic," Pierce told ET. "I'm living and working in Budapest. I'm not into the royals and my point was we are all complicit in this whirlwind of royal obsession that feeds the tabloids while so much death is around us. That's the wrong priority. I've known 12 people to die. I didn't see the interview or know it was about her suicidal thoughts."
