On Thursday, Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, and Uju Anya, a Nigerian academic living in Pennsylvania, had an argument about Queen Elizabeth II.
After learning of the British monarch’s passing, Uju said some harsh and degrading things about her.
In a now-deleted tweet, she wrote; ”I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.”
Bezos, who came across her tweet and thought it was distasteful, made reference to her being a lecturer that is supposed to make the world a better place.
He quoted her tweet and wrote; ‘This is someone supposedly working to make the world better? I don’t think so. Wow.”
But in response, Uju rained insults on the Forbes billionaire, both in Igbo and English language.
”Otoro gba gbue gi. May everyone you and your merciless greed have harmed in this world remember you as fondly as I remember my colonizers,” she tweeted.
Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, died Thursday at Balmoral after 70 years on the throne.
She was 96.
The Queen ascended to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.
A statement by Buckingham Palace on Sept. 8 said: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.
“The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
Following her demise, Prince Charles, her eldest son and the former Prince of Wales, will lead the country in mourning as the new King.
