Harry and Meghan called it a 'hate crisis' on social media

The couple, officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, hosted a nearly two-hour online conversation in which Time 100Talks spoke to some experts with whom they said they were online. Line forums met this year to promote more empathy.

 

"It's a global crisis. A global crisis of hatred, a global crisis of misinformation and a global health crisis," Harry said in his opening remarks at the "Engineering Better World" debate.

 

Harry and Meghan moved to Southern California this year after relinquishing their royal roles to live a more independent life and avoid hostile British media.

 

"It's important to make online conversations healthy for everyone," Meghan said.

 

"It's not just a matter of mental health or emotional well-being. It's a human problem. And what's happening to all of us online is affecting us deeply offline," he said Tuesday.

 

Meghan said last week that she closed all her personal social media accounts a few years ago and did not read "What people are saying about her online for my own protection."

 

In a podcast conversation with teens on World Mental Health Day earlier this month, Meghan said she was told’ that "in 2019, I was the most trolled person in the world - male or female. Women."
