Meghan Markle has faced intense trolling over everything from eating an avocado to cradling her baby bump.

The hate comments often took a racist and threatening turn. In 2019, the royal family's social media staff began using software to filter out the use of the n-word as well as emojis of guns and knives.

According to a new report out this week from Bot Sentinel, a Twitter analytics provider, the online hate the duchess faced was part of a targeted and coordinated campaign originating from just 83 Twitter accounts.

Femi Oke, host of "The Stream" on Al Jazeera English, explains.
