People are dragging Marie Claire after the women's mag posted an article pointing out that Meghan Markle, current and future queen*, has "a single gray hair."

*I know she won't be IRL but she is to me!!!

A writer for the mag spotted the errant hair in a photo from March 23 of Markle and Prince Harry in Belfast. The author wrote that the hair was "glorious because, same."

"Who knows if Meghan Markle is choosing to just own it, not waste the time and money on such frequent upkeep, or, just doesn't notice because it's ONE HAIR," author Sally Holmes wrote. "But, either way, it's nice to see she's a regular person with a few stray grays, just like everyone else!"

The mag then tweeted the article out with a blown-up photo pointing out the gray hair and proceeded to get dragged to filth.

"What the actual frick, get in the bin."

f*ck you @marieclaire you can delete tweets/articles all you want, but you are still trash. Who approved writing a piece on Meghan Markle's strand of grey hair? What the actual frick, get in the bin

Women even showed off their grays in solidarity.

I’m younger than Meghan Markle and have WAY more gray hairs. Where’s my article, @marieclaire?

Others imagined how the article came to be.

" I need 300 words on Meghan Markle's grey hair on my desk by 8 am, Tina. Don't fuck this up!"

Hmm.
