I lost my £2,600-a-month job because I dared to criticize Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Somebody who spoke out against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lost their job and £2,500 a month because of it.
After being medically discharged from the military in 2015, 47-year-old Trever Coult began making significant money from his YouTube channel.
As a result of his comments about the “dangerous duo,” however, he has lost everything.
While serving in Afghanistan, Trever said he didn’t think Harry was ever in any real danger because the two of them were “so well protected” in a video that sparked controversy.
The Suffolk-based single father added that the Prince’s presence in Helmand at the time would have put British forces in a more precarious position.
After Trever made his opinions public, his channel, which had over 23 million views, was “demonetised” because of viewer complaints.
Trever now relies on YouTube for financial support after suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of his three tours of duty with the Royal Irish Regiment in Afghanistan.
To take away my livelihood because I spoke out against Harry, he told the Mirror, is unfair and an extreme overreaction.
Where has all the freedom of expression gone? Harry has been very critical of the royal family, accusing them of racism and basically labeling his brother a bully.
Trever says he has tried getting answers from YouTube but claims “social media companies are on Harry and Meghan’s side”.
He was told he could no longer earn money from his videos because they were considered to be bullying and harassing.
YouTube, as well as Harry and Meghan’s representatives, have been contacted.
