Argentine TV host celebrates death of Queen ‘Old B***h’

Queen Elizabeth II’s death was celebrated by an Argentinian TV show host, who popped champagne while uttering “the old b***h is dead” live on air.

Santiago Cúneo, a member of Argentina’s ruling left-wing Justicialist Party, has faced criticism after mocking the queen’s death.

In a clip that has gone viral on social media, the Buenos Aires-based politician and TV host said in comments translated by the New York Post“She’s over for good,” adding, “Loud applause for Satan who finally took her.”

With an on-screen chyron that reportedly read: ‘The old shitbag is dead’, in reference to the passing of the 96-year-old British monarch, Cúneo added ‘the old female dog is dead’ and popped a bottle of champagne in a rude celebration.

It is likely that the animosity shown towards the widely loved monarch stems from the Falklands War between the UK and Argentina in 1982, sparked by Argentine forces invading the British Isles.

The conflict, which lasted 74 days, saw the late Margaret Thatcher order the British armed forces to eject the Argentine invaders from the islands, with the Argentines losing 649 servicemen killed, 11,313 captured and nine warships and support ships sunk before surrender.

The inhabitants of the British Overseas Territory — which is located about 300 miles (480 kilometers) east of Argentina in the South Atlantic — are mostly descendants of British settlers who began colonizing the islands. in 1841 — they were previously uninhabited — and they overwhelmingly support continued British sovereignty, as a referendum in 2013 demonstrated.

Port Howard, West Falkland: This photo released by the Ministry of Defense shows the Union Flag flying over Port Howard, West Falkland. The flag was hoisted by 40 Commando, Royal Marines. Simultaneously, another flag flew over Port Stanley, signifying the end of the Falklands War.

Cúneo was not the only person in the Americas to spit venom at the late queen, however, Carnegie Mellon University professor Uja Anya writing on Twitter Thursday ahead of news of the queen’s death: “I heard the chief monarch of a thief rape the genocidal empire is finally dying. May his pain be excruciating.

The Nigerian-born, US-based left-leaning professor’s comments were widely condemned in Britain and the rest of the world, even Amazon’s Jeff Bezos wrote: “He is someone who works self- saying to make the world a better place? I do not think so. Wow.”

The post has since been deleted from Twitter, with the platform claiming the comments violated its rules.
