Cher’s inexplicable tribute to the Queen is causing a stir

On September 8, Buckingham Palace announced that Queen Elizabeth II had died at the age of 96 after 70 years in power. “The Queen died peacefully in Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen consort will remain in Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow,” read a statement.

On the day of the Queen’s death, Prince Charles, formerly known as the Prince of Wales, became King of the United Kingdom and 14 Commonwealth realms. “The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” he said in a statement to USA Today. “I know her loss will be felt deeply across the country, in the rich and in the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.” Per the Mirror, the royal family will now mourn Elizabeth’s death for the next 17 days. A date for her funeral has yet to be confirmed. However, the outlet notes that it was supposed to take place 10 days after her death.

Unsurprisingly, following the news from users on social media from around the world, there has been a spate of tributes. Cher, who had met Elizabeth more than once, took to Twitter to honor her health. However, her tribute makes everyone ask the same question.

Did Cher really call Queen Elizabeth II a cow?

Following the news that Queen Elizabeth II had died, superstar singer Cher took to her Twitter page to share some touching words. “Am saddened by the death of Queen Elizabeth II. I had the honor of meeting her. I was in a long line of people. I was waiting to meet her but when she got to me she asked me relevant questions and seemed really interested in talking about it.” Me,” said the “Believe” singer. However, it was the sentence after that raised some eyebrows and left people with a question. “I’m proud that she was one [ox emoji] & lucky she had a great sense of humor.”

Given that Cher’s tweet was heartfelt, fans wanted to know if she really planned on using those emoji choices. “Did Cher just call the queen a cow,” wrote one user. “You happy she was a WHAT???” another person asked. “Cher accidentally calls the queen a cow nahhh I’m on the floor rrrr,” noted a third fan. Although Cher hasn’t confirmed what she meant by the emoji, the ox is believed to be related to her and Elizabeth is, both of which are a Taurus. “It clearly represents the zodiac sign Taurus. She’s proud because they were both Taurus and their birthdays were a day apart,” noted one user.

According to Metro, Cher first met Elizabeth in London in 1988 at the film premiere of Empire of the Sun. 13 years later they met again in 2001 at the Royal Variety Performance.

Cher was appalled by Donald Trump’s treatment of Queen Elizabeth II

Ahead of former US President Donald Trump’s trip to the UK in 2018, the Evening Standard reported that he had been downgraded from a state visit, meaning Queen Elizabeth II would not invite Trump to stay at Buckingham Palace. Cher celebrated the news on Twitter, expressing her happiness for the Queen and partially writing “Hes Beneath U.”

But Trump met the Queen while walking across the pond. His arrival was met with protests in London, and one of his interactions with Elizabeth was not well received. As reported by the New York Times, he broke royal protocol by charging in front of the Queen during an honor guard inspection. Joining the chorus of Trump critics, Cher told the Press Association (via HuffPost), “Everybody hated him … For leaving her there, that’s inexcusable, that’s inexcusable.”

Perhaps Cher will be relieved to know the queen worshiped cattle

The New York Post suggests that Cher wanted to use a goat emoji, not a cow, to refer to Queen Elizabeth II in her Twitter tribute, noting that GOAT is an acronym for “Greatest Of All Time.” is. But maybe the queen wouldn’t find it so offensive to be compared to a cow. After her death, a video clip of Elizabeth’s joyous reaction to the sight of cattle during her 90th birthday celebrations went viral. As Jersey and Red Sussex cattle are led into an arena, she points to the animals and calls out, “Cows!”

Elizabeth loved cattle so much that she kept her own herd. According to Southern Living, her dairy cows were featured in a BBC Countryfile special. Not only are their pampered pets TV stars, they also get the royal treatment — the milk divas can relax on waterbeds and have special motorized brushes to scratch their itch. So the Queen clearly thought cows were the GOAT.
