The Daily Mail has been hit by two court cases; firstly, the Duchess of Sussex has claimed they published letters belonging to her, while Adolf Hitler has claimed The Mail published 40 years of headlines belonging to him. Allegedly, large sections of Mein Kampf have been passed off as Mail editorials and have found their way into the more alarming sections of the horoscope page.
Alongside Hitler’s writing, The Mail has also published other extremists such as Leopold II of Belgium, The Joker and Jeremy Clarkson. A series of editors have knowingly quoted from Darth Vadar, particularly his views on Brexit.
Meanwhile the Duchess of Sussex maintains that The Mail has published nothing original or imagined, other than their own libel defences. Although, ironically, while Meghan sues The Mail for copyright infringement, Princess Di is suing Meghan for same.
The Mail’s legal team is basing their defense on their founder Lord Rothermere’s ‘Hurrah for the Blackshirts!’, by counter-suing Hitler, claiming: ‘The Daily Mail thought of the Third Reich first’
