French magazine Charlie Hebdo caused social media outrage Saturday over its front-page drawing of Queen Elizabeth II kneeling on the neck of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
A caption on the drawing translates to “Why Meghan left Buckingham.” A quote bubble near Meghan’s head reads, “because I couldn’t breathe anymore.”
In the photo, shared on the magazine’s Twitter account, a menacing-looking Queen Elizabeth II pins Meghan down with her knee. The image is a cartoon recreation of George Floyd
’s death when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes during a May 25 arrest. […]
Social media users slammed Charlie Hebdo over the drawing, with some calling it racist.
“Words cannot describe just how disgusting I found that Charlie Hebdo cover. Punching down and constantly drawing racist caricatures it’s not satire. It’s called being a d---,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Charlie Hebdo is a disgusting newspaper that promotes Racism, Xenophobia, Islamophobia and sexism. For years it has made fun of many serious social issues that exists in the world, whilst making millions of dollars,” another posted.

Maybe somebody should go to Hebdo’s office and...oh, never mind.
Where’s the cover showing BiXiden kneeling on the neck of Lady Liberty?
I think it’s hilarious...LOL
The Queen should have encased the losers harry meghan in the tower instead of Frogmore, lol.
A healthy drug free George Floyd would be alive today after an HOUR of a knee on the back and partial side of his neck. It’s not possible to choke a person’s windpipe or pinch major arteries from behind the neck. It would require an object underneath the neck, such as a parking slot curb, to close those critical areas of air and blood flow.
Note the stubble on the Queen’s legs, LOL. I’ll bet King BaiDen would get a thrill over that.
When that mag got on the wrong side of Muslims they tried to kill editors, have it banned, etc. Do you think brits will do the same, or figure “she probably has it coming?”
So, what is implied is that Meagan Markle died of a Fentanyl overdose? Wait, What?
they have got a real nightmare on their hands
now she is demanding to see all things related to the claims she bullied staff
this is the kind of woman I warn young kids in my family about...it’s fine when its turned towards someone else but just you wait until things start to get rocky and it’s aimed at you. get a prenup
Just reading the headline caused me to LOL.
Even without the actual Charlie Hebdo cartoon, that is a perfect Babylon Bee article headline.
Must be my white, male, non-royal privilege laughing.
It would be funnier if she had her own leg on her back.
I saw that!!! ROFL...
BaiDen probably drooled when he saw that...
Meghan Markle is hardly a victim of anything.
Its ridiculous to portray her in this fashion.
George Floyd wasnt a victim either. He was flipping high and combative.
Does Harry realize what he has done?
Dont marry at all
You want government out of your life?
Dont give them the in via “family” court.
Tell me, whats in it for men, in modern marriage? Absolutely nothing good.
I detest Markle, but that is pretty funny just the same.
