Whelp it appears that comedian D.L Hughley found the countless posts to be anything BUT funny. He says anymore kicking laughs off the Queen’s passing lacks humanity.
Despite the mountains jokes on social media folks were extremely descriptive on why exactly they were not fans of Queen Elizabeth. The legacy of British imperialism that brutally affected nations consisting of majority of Black and Brown people Queen Elizabeth has been deemed the sole pretor of keeping the racist and prejudice institution ongoing.
It goes deeper than memes on Black Twitter and the tons of other viral social media content that we've all seen since Queen Elizabeth's death was announced.
For many people, she was an embodiment of colonialism, and her death brings back memories of oppression and incites anger

However, D.L feels that Queen Elizabeth should be respected as any other human that has passed on.
"These memes making fun of Queen Elizabeth death is not funny"

He explained to TMZ that he believes whatever she has done with her life that has negatively affected anyone she will answer in the after life so the jokes are unnecessary.
