Patrick J Adams has come out after being constantly ‘withdrawn’ in debates about his former co-star Meghan Markle.

And last night the dad of two took to Twitter and wrote: ‘Hello to the folks and lots of bots discussing all things Markle and me in the conversation. I want you to know a few things. 1. I don’t read any of it. 2. Life is short. 3. There must be better things for you to do. Even you, bump.’

Last March, Canadian director and photographer Derek Ursacki, who lives in Toronto, paid tribute to the actress after her interview with Oprah Winfrey, recalling the five years they worked together on the set of Suits – during which he worked as an assistant director.
Ursacki joined a long line of Meghan’s friends who have spoken out on her behalf in recent weeks, sharing several candid behind-the-scenes photos from the set, writing: “I spent 5 years working with Meghan on Suits as an assistant director mainly with cast.
“She was always a pleasure to work with and was always kind with a big heart, easy going, humble even after the show’s fame and popularity skyrocketed, so full of life, so giving, supportive and funny. ‘

Speaking: Derek Ursacki spent five years with Meghan, 39, on the set of Suits, and he shared a glowing memory of their time together, calling her “kind” and “humble”
Ursacki went on to say it “broke his heart” to see the Duchess of Sussex opening up to Oprah, 67, about her struggles with suicidal thoughts and struggles with mental health issues.
In her interview with Oprah, Meghan said she had been suicidal while in the royal family and said she received no help after speaking about her suffering.
At the time, Buckingham Palace said in a statement released Tuesday that the issues at stake, especially over race, were “concerning” and would be treated privately by the Queen and her family.
While Ursacki did not refer to any of the other allegations made during the interview, he echoed the couple’s attacks on the media in his post, labeling the press as “ruthless” while decrying the “negative” coverage of Meghan. and claimed she had to “live under constant attack.”

Angry: In his Instagram post, Ursacki accused the “ruthless” media of “attacking” Meghan, saying his “heart broke” when he saw her talk about her mental health issues with Oprah
“The media is so relentless towards her with so many negative stories attacking her without really knowing what she is really going through,” he wrote.
“Until you walk a mile in someone’s shoes, no one should be judging or making negative comments about anyone and no one should be constantly attacked and feared for their safety.”
Ursacki concluded his post with another gushing tribute to Meghan, writing: ‘In my heart I know Meg hasn’t changed and is still the lovely person I’ve worked with for those 5 years. I wish her all the best and thank her for the many wonderful memories I have had.’
The director accompanied the post with several behind-the-scenes footage of his time on set, including a candid photo of himself and Meghan, who appeared to be dressed as her character Rachel Zane.
Another image showed the then-assistant director talking to the former actress on set, while a third shot him walking alongside Meghan and her on-screen love interest Patrick Adams – who spoke out ten days ago in defense of the Duchess when he launched an extraordinary attack on the royal family.
This came after Patrick J Adams on Twitter described the monarchy as “toxic, archaic and shameless.”
Patrick said his “powerful” and “nice” friend was the subject of underhanded behavior on the part of the monarchy after reports were published that Meghan had “bullied” several former Kensington Palace employees, she insists.

Close Friends: Meghan’s close friend, actress Janina Gavankar, also took a hit last year, revealing that the Sussex have “emails and texts” to back up their royal accusations
Echoing the sentiments shared in Ursacki’s post, Patrick used several glowing adjectives to describe “nice, happy, and supportive” Meghan, before describing the struggles he said she experienced when she joined the “archaic and toxic ‘ royal family added.
“She fell in love, moved to a new country, became a household name around the world and began the difficult work of finding her place in a family dynamic that could be described as complicated at best and seemingly archaic and toxic at worst” , he wrote in the rant of eight tweets.
Buckingham Palace at the time “engaged an outside law firm” to investigate allegations that Meghan had bullied royal staff.
Oprah’s best friend Gayle King – who attended Meghan’s baby shower in New York in 2019 – doubled down on claims that the Duchess has “enough receipts” to substantiate the charges during the primetime sit-down.
