Charlie Hebdo SLAMMED for cover parodying Meghan Markle and George Floyd

News

French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has come under fire after releasing its latest controversial cover.

The cover shows a cartoon of Queen Elizabeth II kneeling on Meghan Markle’s neck, invoking the death of George Floyd.

Halima Begum, CEO of race equality think tank the Runnymede Trust, slammed the cartoon, saying that it was “wrong on every level”.

“#CharlieHebdo, this is wrong on every level. The Queen as #GeorgeFloyd’s murderer crushing Meghan’s neck? #Meghan saying she’s unable to breathe? This doesnt push boundaries, make anyone laugh or challenge #racism. It demeans the issues & causes offence, across the board,” she said on Twitter.

The cover image cartoon came days after Prince Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
