French magazine Charlie Hedbo was blasted for its latest cover featuring a controversial cartoon of the Queen and   Meghan Markle. 

News Onyx reported that the satirical publication dropped its latest issue with a drawing that showed the 94-year-old monarch kneeling on Meghan Markle’s neck. The cover’s headline read, “Why Meghan Markle left Buckingham Palace…Because ‘I couldn’t breathe.’”

The image that referenced George Floyd’s 2020 murder by police officer Derek Chauvin sparked outrage online.

Social media went into a frenzy over the French magazine’s cover, but some people expressed that viewers of the image who are outraged– missed the point.

Charlie Hedbo is a satirical publication that’s no holds barred when it comes to taking shots at prominent figures. This situation isn’t the magazine’s first outrageous cover.

In 2015, Charlie Hedbo journalists were attacked and killed at its Paris office after two Algerian brothers overran the police officer tasked with protecting staff after threats were made. The men killed 12 employees over offensive images of the Muslim prophet Muhammed.
