Who Is Gary Janetti? New Details On The Hollywood Writer And Royal Parodist Who Just Released A New Book

There are some people that seem like such fun to be around, and Gary Janetti is definitely one of them. In a negative, hate-filled world, to see someone who clearly has a light and a joy about themselves, and a desire to make the world a better place, is a wonderful thing. So who is Gary Janetti, and why is he our new favorite author and Instagram follow?

An American writer and producer by trade, Gary Janetti has written for several television shows, including Family Guy and Will and Grace. Recently, too, he wrote the British sitcom Vicious. But lately, Gary Janetti isn't known for writing for television — he's known for his infamous Instagram page, where he takes a satirical look at the British Royal Family by pretending to be Prince George of Cambridge. Using the guise of the heir to the British throne, he has made remarks that imagines the child as a Triumph the Insult Comic Dog-like character, making snide remarks about his appearances in the media, and making particularly catty remarks about Duchess Meghan Markle of Sussex.

Recently, though, Janetti said that he was taking a more sympathetic approach to the Duchess Meghan swipes, especially once the former actress revealed the struggles she was enduring as a new member of the British Royal Family. 

Let's look at what else we know about him.

You know, he does not like to kick somebody when they’re down," he told People exclusively after it was revealed in a new documentary that Meghan Markle was struggling with media backlash.
