Twitter took down the vile post of a professor at Carnegie Mellon University after she wished England’s Queen Elizabeth “excruciating pain” hours before she died.
Carnegie Mellon University Professor Uju Anya said: “I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.” After facing backlash she doubled down saying:
“If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.”
“This is someone supposedly working to make the world better?” Amazon founder Jeff Bezos said. “I don’t think so. Wow.”
“This is what a complete lack of emotional intelligence & a heart full of hate looks like,” British model Jemma Palmer said. “Don’t be like @UjuAnya. Be a better human.”
Former President Donald Trump and his wife, former first lady Melania Trump issued a statement after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. They said:
“Melania and I are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Together with our family and fellow Americans, we send our sincere condolences to the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom during this time of great sorrow and grief.
“Queen Elizabeth’s historic and remarkable reign left a tremendous legacy of peace and prosperity for Great Britain. Her leadership and enduring diplomacy secured and advanced alliances with the United States and countries around the world.
“However, she will always be remembered for her faithfulness to her country and her unwavering devotion to her fellow countrymen and women.
“Melania and I will always cherish our time together with the Queen, and never forget Her Majesty’s generous friendship, great wisdom, and wonderful sense of humor.
“What a grand and beautiful lady she was—there was nobody like her.
“Our thoughts and prayers will remain with the great people of the United Kingdom as you honor her most meaningful life and exceptional service to the people.
“May God bless the Queen, may she reign forever in our hearts, and may God hold her and Prince Philip in abiding care,” he said.
