There has been an ongoing row about the nature of media criticism of Meghan Markle, with some critics describing it as racist
The rapper previously suggested he would find accepting an MBE or OBE uncomfortable because of Britain’s ‘dark’ colonial legacy.
He has also been critical of Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the content of his journalism before he entered politics.
Stormzy told Italy’s La Repubblica: ‘If the top person can openly say this racist thing – the ‘piccaninies’ remarks, ‘watermelon smiles’, comparing Muslim women to a letterbox.
‘If that is our figurehead, the top man, the leader we have to follow and he openly says these things, he encourages hate.’
