Germaine Greer is in hot water after making disparaging comments about Meghan Markle in her recent interview.

When Greer recently appeared on "60 Minutes," she said that Prince Harry and Markle's marriage is doomed. "I think she'll bolt. She bolted before," Greer said (via, referring to Markle's failed marriage with Trevor Engelson. "I hope in a way that she'll bolt but maybe she'll take Harry with her."

When asked why the "Horrible Bosses" star gave up everything to marry Prince Harry, Greer implied that Markle did it because of his wealth. "Why would a girl born in poverty marry a man with 53 million quid? I can't think of single reason," she said.

Following the interview, some expressed their anger over Greer's statements on social media.

"She does not represent any opinions of women in the UK, she is outdated and judgemental on issues surrounding womens rights especially the #meto campaign. Please take her back Australia," Debbie wrote.

"Megan's mum was a yoga teacher and dad worked in Hollywood - why are they saying she was born into poverty ? To make her out to be a gold diggers? Seriously ! Such bad reporting...." Anita added.

Some also called out self-proclaimed feminist Greer for making such comments against Markle, who is a feminist as well and a successful individual in her own right. Some even called the 79-year-old writer "bitter" and "spiteful" and said that she was not a real feminist.

"Slow news day @60Mins ? Surely there's better things for Tara to report than the miserable GG's opinion on other people seeking happiness," Ashley Unlocked wrote. "Inferring that Meghan Markle is a gold digger, what a wonderfully feminist thing to say about a woman who is successful in her own right."

"For a feminist, Germaine has made some pretty tough judgment on a woman she has never even met! Leave the Royals alone, you don’t have to like them GG." EdwizzleDizzle commented.

Former MP Ann Widdecombe also faced the same backlash after calling Prince Harry's fiancée "trouble." Widdecombe said that she's worried about Prince Harry, considering Markle's background and attitude.

After Widdecombe's stint on "Celebrity Big Brother," she made the same statement about the future royal. "I'm just very dubious that somebody who has made her life in those sorts of films, been married before, comes over and has to become an active member of a very, very stuffy, traditional family," she said.
