Paul Nehlen, a fringe challenger to House Speaker Paul Ryan's seat in Wisconsin, was banned from Twitter over the racist tweet about Markle. "Oh @pnehlen - you’re a sad and sick man with no sense of shame or class," Adams tweeted to Nehlen. "Get a life. And don’t go anywhere near MM - she’s got more power, strength, honor and compassion in her fingernail than you’ll ever know in this lifetime. Way above your weight class."

Suits renewed for Season 8 without Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle
As expected, Adams and Markle’s characters will exit after the end of Season 7 with a two-hour wedding-themed season finale scheduled for April 25. To help fill their void, Dule Hill will be promoted to series regular in Season 8. Creator Aaron Korsh says of moving forward without Suits’ main stars: “Season eight will have everything from shifting alliances and internal power plays, to secrets, betrayals and fiery relationships. Keep an eye out for an adversarial new character that will give Harvey a run for his money." ALSO: Patrick J. Adams says he was tired of being away from home, and first started thinking about leaving in early Season 6.

How Meghan Markle ended up getting her big break on Suits
It was her chemistry with Patrick J. Adams that won her the role, says Jeff Wachtel, who served as co-president of USA when Markle was cast. "One of the things that we needed at the beginning with Suits was Patrick's character comes in as the hottest thing in town: he's brilliant, has a photographic memory and fakes his way into being a lawyer and then he comes up against this girl who turns out to be the love of his life," says Wachtel. "We needed somebody who had a real authority to shut him down and still be the coolest thing around. And they had it right away. It was a lot of fun."

Suits star Patrick J. Adams calls Prince Harry “a lucky man” for getting engaged to Meghan Markle
Suits creator Aaron Korsh along with co-star Sarah Rafferty reacted to the engagement news on Twitter. And Adams, following a joke tweet about his co-star’s engagement, sent a more serious tweet hours later: “Playing Meghan’s television partner for the better part of a decade uniquely qualifies me to say this: Your Royal Highness, you are a lucky man and I know your long life together will be joyful, productive and hilarious,” Adams wrote. “Meghan, so happy for you, friend. Much love.”

Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams are poised to exit Suits if it returns for a likely Season 8
The contracts of all original cast members of the USA series will be up after Season 7, and according to Deadline both Markle and Adams are expected to move on. Deadline reports that an eighth season is still likely, though it hasn’t been ordered. The USA series gave Adams his big break and, of course, Markle is more famous these days dating Prince Harry. As Deadline notes, “like with Adams, Suits also helped establish Markle as a TV star. Her Rachel Zane character on Suits had been closely linked with Adams’ Mike Ross since Day 1, so an exit of Markle alongside Adams would make sense.”

Suits star Patrick J. Adams: I have to be careful when posting pictures of co-star Meghan Markle
"I'm not good at it, I overthink every post that I put out and the ramifications and who'll be listening and how it'll be received," he tells Esquire of how Markle dating Prince Harry has affected him. "I posted this old photo I had found of Meghan and I on set. I went to bed, and woke up in the morning and realized ‘Oh, yeah. I live in a world where you can’t post things about Meghan.' I had this onslaught of people retweeting the thing, people thinking it was a recent picture, and I just thought, 'What the hell is going on?'"
