On Good Morning Britain, Susanna Reid slammed Prince Harry for streaming a live therapy session for paying fans to watch him virtue signal and victimize himself. In the interview, Prince Harry spoke with Dr. Gabor Maté, a physician and author, in a virtual event streamed online.
In an event focusing on “living with loss and the importance of personal healing,” he spoke about his use of psychedelic drugs and the war in Afghanistan. As Susanna and co-host Richard Madeley discussed the topic, the former hit out at the suggestion the event could be labeled an “interview”. “This isn’t an interview,” Susanna pointed out. “It’s an actual therapy session.
“It was a live-streamed therapy session… the complaint about invading privacy becomes increasingly weak when you allow a live-streamed, ticketed, paid-for event that is about as intimate as you can get discussing your thoughts with a counselor.”
The GMB presenter suggested that the event may be “to normalize therapy and for Harry to see himself as someone who’s de-stigmatizing the discussion of mental health”.
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix docu-series premiered, the couple issued a statement claiming they had never “cited privacy as a reason” for deciding to step away from the royal family.
It said: “This distorted narrative was designed to keep the couple silent. Their announcement of their decision to step down does not mention privacy and instead emphasizes their desire to continue their roles and public duties. Any other suggestion brings up a key point in this series.
“They have chosen to share their story on their terms, even though the tabloid media has created an entirely false narrative that pervades press coverage and public opinion. The evidence is right in front of them.”
Meanwhile, it was suggested during Harry’s conversation with Dr. Gabor that Prince Harry has attention deficit disorder (ADD).
“When I read your book as a clinician – you can agree or disagree –but I come up with several diagnoses that seem to go on in the book,” he said.
“I diagnosed you with ADD whether you like it or not, okay? Knowing one takes one, and I agree with that assessment.”
Meanwhile, the satirical world of South Park has once again expanded beyond its animated universe, with a TikTok user named Kelly creating a parody book cover that mocks Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, which was released in January of this year.
The parody is based on a ‘South Park’ episode in which ex-Canadian royals go on a Worldwide Privacy Tour and complain about their desire for privacy. Many fans reacted positively to her new creation style.
WAAAGH is the title of a novel written by an ex-Canadian prince in the episode, and its cover looks suspiciously like Prince Harry in a close-up shot with a red-headed, freckled cartoon prince. The episode inspired Kelly to create a real-life version of the WAAAGH book cover using graphic design software.
Kelly documented the design process in a series of TikTok videos, demonstrating the creation of the graphics and the application of the cover to an actual hardcover novel. The artist then went to Target to buy Prince Harry’s memoir, fulfilling fan requests to have the cover placed on the actual book.
Viewers have reacted positively to Kelly’s amusing creation, with comments ranging from admiration to laughter. “I love the ‘Worldwide Privacy Tour,” one fan wrote about Prince Harry and Meghan.”

“Can you sell this so I can put it on my Spare cover?” another fan inquired. Another fan stated, “Dude, this is so cool!” UNDERRATED TO THE MAX!!” “You are the hero!” exclaimed another. “Thank you for using your graphic design skills to serve chaotic evil. “I’d like to make a bunch of those and put them on the actual books in the store!” said another.
The show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have frequently used satire to comment on current events and pop culture, so the crossover between South Park and the real world is not new. ‘South Park,’ with the help of fans like Kelly, continues to inspire creative and humorous responses to the world around us.

India, At UN, Is Mum About Dispute With Canada Over Sikh Separatist Leader’s Killing
UNITED NATIONS — As he addressed world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, India’s top diplomat avoided addressing his country’s dispute with Canada over the assassination of a Sikh separatist leader. However, he indirectly criticized how other nations respond to “terrorism.”
Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar devoted most of his speech to praising India’s rising global stature and aspirations for leadership, highlighting its recent tenure as chair of the Group of 20 industrialized nations and presiding over a substantial summit meeting last month.
However, he also stated that the international community must not “allow political expediency to determine responses to terrorism, extremism, and violence.”
India has frequently attacked Pakistan at the United Nations over what New Delhi perceives as Pakistan’s sponsorship of terrorism. This time, however, the remark could be interpreted as an attack on Canada, whose representative is scheduled to speak at the United Nations later on Tuesday.
As a result of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s statement last week that India may have been involved in the June murder of a Canadian citizen in a Vancouver suburb, relations between the two countries have reached their lowest point in years.
Hardeep Singh Nijjar, 45, was murdered by masked assailants, but Canada has not yet provided any public evidence of Indian involvement in the murder. India had designated him as a terrorist because he led the remnants of a once-powerful movement to establish an independent Sikh homeland, Khalistan.
India’s top diplomat avoided addressing his country’s dispute with Canada over the assassination of a Sikh separatist leader.
The Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs dismissed the allegation as “absurd” and accused Canada of harboring “terrorists and extremists.” It also asserted that the allegations were politically motivated, indicating that Trudeau sought domestic support from the Sikh diaspora.
“Such unsubstantiated allegations seek to divert attention away from Khalistani terrorists and extremists, who have found refuge in Canada and continue to threaten India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the ministry said in a statement released last week.
However, they have long accused Canada of allowing Sikh separatists, including Nijjar, unfettered reign.
Even though the active insurgency ended decades ago, the Modi administration has warned that Sikh separatists are attempting a comeback. New Delhi has urged nations such as Canada, where Sikhs account for more than 2% of the population, to do more to prevent a separatist revival.
After the G20 summit, Canada’s allegation obscured India’s diplomatic moment. Jaishankar sought to refocus attention on his country’s ambitions in the international arena, noting that India is the world’s most populous nation and a growing economic superpower.
“When we aspire to be a leading power, it is not for self-promotion, but to assume more responsibility and make more contributions,” he explained. “The goals we have set for ourselves will distinguish us from those who rose before us.”

Spain Charges Pop Singer Shakira With Tax Evasion For A Second Time And Demands More Than $7 Million
BARCELONA, SPAIN — Spanish prosecutors have charged Colombian pop sensation Shakira with failing to pay 6.7 million euros ($7.1 million) in tax on her 2018 earnings, authorities announced Tuesday. This is Spain’s most recent fiscal accusation against the Colombian singer.
Prosecutors in Barcelona alleged in a statement that Shakira used an offshore company based in a tax refuge to avoid paying the tax.
According to the statement, she has been notified of the allegations in Miami, where she resides.
Shakira is already scheduled to be tried in Barcelona on November 20 for a separate case involving her residence between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors allege she neglected to pay 14.5 million euros in taxes in this instance.
Prosecutors in Barcelona have asserted that the Grammy winner spent more than fifty percent of the 2012-2014 period in Spain and thus should have paid taxes in the country, even though her official residence was in the Bahamas.
Spanish prosecutors have charged Colombian pop sensation Shakira with failing to pay 6.7 million euros ($7.1 million) in tax on her 2018 earnings.
Last July, Spanish tax officials launched a new investigation against Shakira. Prosecutors have decided to file charges after reviewing the evidence compiled over the past two months. No trial date has been set.
Llorente y Cuenca, the public relations firm previously managing Shakira’s affairs, had no immediate comment.
Last July, it was stated that the artist had “always complied with the law and followed the advice of her financial advisors.”
Since she began dating the now-retired football player Gerard Pique, Shakira, whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, has been linked to Spain. The couple, who have two children, resided in Barcelona until the end of their 11-year relationship last year.
In the past decade, Spain’s tax authorities have cracked down on football superstars such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for not paying their entire tax obligations. These athletes were found guilty of tax evasion but were spared prison time due to a provision that enables judges to forego sentences of less than two years for first-time offenders.

Toymaker Lego Will Stick To Its Quest To Find Sustainable Materials Despite Failed Recycle Attempt In 2023
COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Lego stated on Monday that it remains committed to its quest to find sustainable materials to reduce carbon emissions despite the failure of an experiment to use recycled bottles. Lego is the world’s largest toy manufacturer.
After more than two years of testing, Lego “decided not to proceed” with producing its trademark colorful bricks from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles because “the material did not reduce carbon emissions.”
Nonetheless, the toymaker remains “fully committed to making Lego bricks from sustainable materials by 2032,” according to the company’s website.
Two years ago, the private company that manufactures bricks from oil-derived plastic began researching a potential transition to recycled plastic bottles made of PET plastic, which does not degrade in quality when recycled.
The company stated that it had invested “more than $1.2 billion in sustainability initiatives” to transition to more sustainable materials and reduce carbon emissions by 37% by 2032.
The company reported that it was “currently testing and developing Lego bricks made from a range of alternative sustainable materials, including other recycled plastics and plastics made from alternative sources such as e-methanol.”
E-methanol, also known as green methanol, is composed of residual carbon dioxide and hydrogen and is produced by splitting water molecules using renewable energy.
The company said it would continue to use bio-polypropylene, the sustainable and biological variant of polyethylene — a plastic used in everything from consumer and food packaging to tires — for elements in Lego sets such as leaves, trees and other accessories.
Long-term, “we believe that this will encourage increased production of more sustainable raw materials, such as recycled oils, and help support our transition to sustainable materials,” the report stated.
The company was founded by Ole Kirk Kristiansen in 1932. The name comprises the Danish words leg and godt, meaning “play well.” The brand name was created without knowledge of the Latin Lego, meaning “I assemble.”
