A series of posts on social media indicated that a good number of online users celebrated the death of Elizabeth II who died on 8 September.
all jokes aside, solidarity with all those who have suffered under the colonial rule of the queen, and with their families and descendants as well. her death doesn't bring back the millions of people murdered by the british empire but hopefully it feels really fucking good anyway— — io — (@iokaraya) September 8, 2022

The Queen is dead. Long live EVERY INDIGENOUS PERSON who survived despite the British Empire's best efforts to destroy and assimilate them.— WalkingInAustin (@WalkingInAustin) September 8, 2022
