Cancel culture on social media and the unpopularity faced by the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry are going through a serious streak of bad luck for now. With the series of unfortunate events that are unfolding for the couple, there have been no public replies or reactions from them yet. Since the losses faced by Spotify, there has been a terrible backlash aimed at the Sussexes and their  $25 million deal. However, just when we thought things could not get any worse, Netflix might change its plans with the estranged couple’s $100 million deals, suggest the latest reports.

Meghan Markle’s Spotify podcast was under a lot of scrutiny from the public eye. The award-winning podcast came under a closer tab when the Swedish giant started laying off its staff in masses. Thus, miffed by the lack of content, the audio company declared that Archetypes won’t have a second season.

Typically show or a program gets canceled for the second season due to low viewership or listenership. This leads to low advertising and subscription revenues. However, in this case, even if the podcast was quite popular at the beginning, it eventually gathered a lot of negative feedback.


Following Spotify, the American giant, Netflix, might make a few changes too. The bombshell of docuseries, which was Harry & Meghan, was one of the most viewed docu-series on Netflix for the longest time. However, according to a report by The Sun, the higher-ups at Netflix think that the couple’s story has ‘no more squeeze‘ left. And probably their explosive docuseries might not get a follow-up as well. The sources have, in fact, confirmed that the bosses called Markle ignorant discreetly and said that she cannot grasp the economic reality.
