Donald Trump supporter Paul Nehlen received a massive backlash after super-imposing an image of the Cheddar Man over the face of Meghan Markle.

Wisconsin Republican Party spokesman Alec Zimmerman said Tuesday that membership dues Nehlen paid previous year to three Wisconsin county parties, which is where state residents join the Republican party, were refunded to Nehlen or donated to charity, the Associated Press reported.

Nehlen captioned the photo "Honey, does this tie make my face look pale?"

Geneticists recently revealed that the almost 10,000-year-old Cheddar Man, which is known as Britain's oldest complete skeleton, would have had dark skin, black hair, and blue eyes.

Patrick J. Adams has shown his support for his former Suits co-star Meghan Markle after she was attacked United States politician Paul Nehlen with a racist tweet. Nehlen said he remains a member of the Republican Party "regardless of what their traitorous, sleazy apparatchiks wish to believe".

Nehlen's account has since been suspended amidst additional anti-Semitic tweets. "In response, I lampooned the article".

After having boosted him to national prominence to defeat Mr. Ryan, the conservative and anti-establishment Breitbart news site already had washed its hands of Mr. Nehlen.

On Facebook, he published posts with the hashtag #ShallNotCensor that appeared to allude to Twitter suspending his account. An adviser for Steve Bannon, then still Breitbart's executive chairman, told The Post that the decision to abandon Nehlen was made after Bannon learned of his appearance on white nationalist podcasts. "74 are Jews", he wrote, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Nehlen called the suspension of his Twitter account as "the epitome of interfering with a federal election" and an effort to "suppress right-wing political speech", The Washington Post reported. "You can't silence everyone", he wrote, along with the hashtag #ShallNotCensor. "Social media companies have usurped this freedom, and we intend to give it back to the American people", Nehlen said in a statement in December.
