Celebrities are coming to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s defense after the couple faced backlash for using a private jet.

Recently, Harry and Meghan took a vacation to Nice in the south of France with their 3-month-old son, Archie. The two traveled by plane, which many claim contrasts their stance on protecting the environment.

Elton John, Pink and Ellen DeGeneres are supporting Harry and Meghan via social media after critics slammed them. John said, “I am deeply distressed by today’s distorted and malicious account in the press surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s private stay at my home in Nice last week.”

“I feel a profound sense of obligation to protect Harry and his family from the unnecessary press intrusion that contributed to Diana’s untimely death,” John continued.

Singer Pink also took to Twitter to encourage people to be kind instead of bullying others. “I’m happy to see people coming to the defense of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The way people treat her is the most public form of bullying I have seen in a while. It’s out of control. Let’s all be a bit kinder, huh? Let’s show our children that it’s cool to be kind,” she wrote.

“Portia and I met Prince Harry and Meghan in England to talk about their work on wildlife conservation. They were the most down-to-earth, compassionate people. Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you’re trying to do is make the world better,” Ellen DeGeneres wrote alongside a photo of Meghan and Harry.
