Twitter bans GOP contender for racist tweet targeting Meghan Markle

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

In the controversial tweet, Nehlen wrote, "Honey, does this tie make my face look pale?"

Patrick J. Adams has come to his former Suits co-star Meghan Markle's defence after U.S. politician Paul Nehlen shared a racist Twitter post about the royal-bride-to-be.

The original tweet featured an image of the Cheddar Man superimposed over Prince Harry's mixed race fiancée.

'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. Cheddar Man, who lived 10,000 years ago and whose skeleton was discovered in 1903 in a cave in Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, England, had brown hair, blue eyes and "dark to black skin".

'Way above your weight class'.

The Washington Times reports the suspension may also have come after Nehlen's anti-Semitic tweets earlier this month.

Nehlen tried to quell the outcry with a tweet claiming he used the photo as a joke to protest science-backed articles proving "whites never existed".

A spokesman for U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, of Janesville, whom Nehlen is challenging in the August GOP primary, said "it has always been clear that Paul Nehlen holds bigoted views".

"I am a member of the Republican Party regardless of what their traitorous, spineless apparatchiks believe", Nehlen said.

A backer of President Donald Trump, he has previously spread anti-Semitic and alt-right memes on social media.

Twitter suspended Nehlen's account after he shared an image of Prince Harry standing next to Markle, a biracial American he is set to marry in May.

Prior to this scandal, Nehlen was a guest on former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke's radio show where he said that the fact he was expelled from Breitbart News' website meant that "in fact, Jews control the media". Nehlen has described himself as "pro-white" and decried the research on Cheddar Man as a way of "disappearing whites or dispossessing whites of their homelands".

Nehlen, who got just 16 percent of the vote against Ryan in 2016, is mounting another primary run this year.
