• Piers Morgan accused Prince Harry of embarking on a "victimhood tour" after the release of the latter's new docuseries
  • Some Twitter users agreed with Morgan, accusing Prince Harry of throwing the royal family under the bus
  • Others sided with Prince Harry, saying he has the right to speak up about his mental health struggles

Prince Harry was criticized by Piers Morgan and some social media users and accused of "abusing" the royal family after the Duke of Sussex made some surprising revelations in his new docuseries.

In Apple TV+'s "The Me You Can't See," which he co-produced with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry opened up about his and wife Meghan Markle's mental health struggles when they were still senior working members of the royal family. In the docuseries, he claimed that his family responded with "total silence or total neglect" when he sought help over negative media coverage of his relationship with the Duchess of Sussex.

Morgan once more took aim at Prince Harry on Twitter as he responded to a Daily Mail headline, which read: "Harry says royals forcing him to go to Nepal and constant jet-setting became 'hectic to the point of exhaustion.'"

"Oh FFS. Is there no end to Prince Privacy's victimhood tour? Constantly abusing his family, knowing they can't respond, is so pathetic & cowardly. Man up, Harry - and shut up," the British TV personality tweeted.

When one user called him out for his "complete lack of understanding and empathy," Morgan fired back, "What 'empathy' is Harry showing his family as he constantly trashes them in public? It's grotesquely unfair (they can't answer back) outrageously hypocritical, and he's making millions from doing it. THAT'S appalling."

In the docuseries, Prince Harry revealed he felt he couldn't rely on his family when he and Markle were struggling and that he was "really angry with myself that we're stuck in this situation."

"I thought my family would help, but every single ask, request, warning, whatever, it is just got met with total silence, total neglect," Prince Harry was quoted by People as saying. "We spent four years trying to make it work. We did everything that we possibly could to stay there and carry on doing the role and doing the job. But Meghan was struggling."

This came shortly after Prince Harry compared his life as a royal to "a mix between 'The Truman Show' and being in a zoo" in another interview.

Some Twitter users appeared to share Morgan's opinions of Prince Harry's recent statements about his family.

"I get it that Harry has issues. Understandable, I guess. That's what therapists are for to help deal with things. However the way he throws people under the bus, without a thought for their mental health is disappointing - and unhelpful," one person commented on Morgan's post.

"Agreed Piers. Prince William went through the same but we don't hear him complain," another user wrote.

"It is weird how he is constantly talking s--t about them now. What is he trying to achieve with all this?" a third user said.

Others came to the Duke of Sussex's defense and showed support for him opening up, saying they believe it will help him as he tries to overcome his mental health struggles.

"This poor kid was asked to ‘man up’ when he was 12. He knows more about ‘manning up’ and toxic masculinity than you ever will," one person said of Prince Harry.

"Harry was damaged by the death of mother at an early age. He is broken inside and hurting. He is speaking and trying to heal. It is, to some, hard to see this and seems like 'whining'. But your criticism is turning cruel and personal," a second user wrote.

"Usually agree with you over the Markles, however, he has a right to talk about his mental health. He clearly needs to do this for himself to try and move on. He is clearly not a happy man right now," another added.

"The Me You Can't See" premiered Friday on Apple TV+.
