The killing of George Floyd has been recreated in an awful attempt at parody — with a French magazine using Queen Elizabeth as Derek Chauvin kneeling on Meghan Markle.
Charlie Hebdo just released a new edition of its weekly publication — and it features a crudely drawn cartoon version of QE2 pressing down on the Duchess of Sussex’s neck … who’s laid down on the ground and struggling for air — much like George Floyd last year.
The caption reads … “POURQUOI MEGHAN A QUITTE BUCKINGHAM,” which translates to “Why Meghan left Buckingham.” There’s a quote bubble coming from Meghan as well in the drawing, which roughly comes out to, “because I couldn’t breathe anymore.”
The message they’re trying to communicate — or so it seems — is that Meghan felt smothered by Royal racism (headed up by the Queen). It turns out to be a swing and a miss — ’cause folks aren’t entertained.
Many are calling the magazine racist … demanding they pull the new issue. While Charlie Hebdo pegs itself as a satire, a lot of people say this goes way too far — mocking Floyd’s death for cheap thrills. Not only that, but it’s inaccurate … according to Harry and Meghan.
Remember, Harry explicitly ruled out his grandmother and grandfather as the party who allegedly brought up skin color concerns as it pertained to Archie. There’s a lot of speculation it was either Prince Charles or Prince William — but the latter denied as much.
In any case … Charlie Hebdo hasn’t responded to the criticism.
