Trump bootlicker Charlie Kirk dubs Prince Harry a ‘metrosexual beta male’. It backfired spectacularly

Right-wing provocateur Charlie Kirk tried to dunk on Prince Harry by calling him a “beta male”, only to end up the butt of everyone’s jokes.

It’s been a busy time to be a right-wing snowflake in the last week. Between throwing tantrums over children’s books and cartoons for absolutely no reason, some have now taken aim at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The latest is Kirk, the 27-year-old co-founder of conservative student group Turning Point USA and author of The MAGA Doctrine, who derided Harry and Meghan Markle on The Charlie Kirk Show Monday (9 March).

Kirk, who has traded having a fulfilling life for having a podcast instead, said: “We know Prince Harry is a metrosexual beta male and really is lacking in almost all testosterone.”

He then aired a list of grievances against the couple he likely has never met nor ever will, accusing Markle of “making it all up like Jussie Smollett” – the Empire actor indicted for allegedly faking a hate crime against himself, accusations he has long denied.

“I think someone said something completely different in a different category and she’s using it now to go make people feel sorry for her,” Kirk continued.

“Are we really now going to blame racism for the alleged oppressed life of Meghan Markle? Is that going to be the consensus point?”

Charlie Kirk ridiculed online after calling Prince Harry ‘beta male’

A two-minute clip of the podcast episode quickly went viral on Twitter at a breakneck speed, but not quite for the reasons Kirk may have hoped.

Instead, users were quick to ridicule him for calling Prince Harry a “beta male”.

In October, Kirk had his Twitter account locked for spreading misinformation about mail-in ballots.

After the election, Kirk was among conversative activists who promoted Trump’s lies about voter fraud. He subsequently boasted he would be sending “80+ buses full of patriots” to Washington DC for what became the Capitol riots. His Turning Point Action group later said that it sent just seven buses.

Some men have been known to struggle with an incredible amount of things in their efforts to shield their strong and stable masculinity.

Sunsets, comfortable chairs, recycling, fruity cocktails, face masks and washing their genitals – nearly everything, it seems, is a threat to masculinity these days.

Men have sought to cope in various ways, whether it be telling homophobic jokes, organising “Straight Pride” events or earning more money than their queer counterparts.

Others grappling with toxic masculinity, researchers say, become more prone to violent bullying, sexual harassment and mental illness.
