D.L. Hughley rages over jokes and memes about the death of Queen Elizabeth II on Twitter

Twitter has probably never been as active as it was on Thursday when news of #QueenElizabeth II’s death was announced by Buckingham Palace. 

Memes have flooded most people’s timelines on Twitter — predominantly from Black Twitter — making jokes that have even seen stars such as Cardi B jokingly saying they were refraining from using the social app because they didn’t want to go to hell.

And as the jokes and memes continue to go viral, D.L. Hughley has spoken out about his thoughts on the “lack of humanity” people have shown to a woman who, outside of being the longest-running monarch in Britain, was somebody’s family member. “I think that anybody that holds the idea that you can’t be sad for somebody when they pass on,” the comedian expressed, per TMZ. “I think it lacks a level of humanity.”

“I’m not a monarchist but I can see—even if you ain’t a queen. Somebody lost their grandmother and their mother. Somebody lost a dear family member.” Further on, the 59-year-old Virginia native believed that the lack of compassion many have shown in a time of mourning and grief shows that people are disconnected from showing solicitude. While the Queen may have been part of “problematic” ideals, her death meant that her “race was over” and “whatever she’s done, she’s gon’ be judged for,” he added.
