Kanye West recently shared a photoshopped picture of the late Queen Elizabeth II as a tribute after her death. Yet, is it really a tribute or mockery? The queen left the mortal world on September 8, 2022, and was succeeded by King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla. Among the ones that mourned the death of the Queen was Kanye who revealed that it reminded him about how fragile life can be.
Kanye West Gives Up Past Grudges After Queen Elizabeth’s Death
In a post on Instagram, the rapper paid tribute to Her Majesty after it was confirmed on Thursday that she passes away at the age of 96 at her Balmoral Castle residence located in Scotland. As the news shocked the globe, Kanye spoke about how this incident changed him as a person and even encouraged him to give up his grudges.
The 45-year-old wrote, “Life is precious. Releasing all grudges today. Leaning into the light.”
As per Style Caster, his post had two striking headshots of Queen Elizabeth wearing her crown during her reign.

Now, as another tribute, the record producer shared a picture of Queen Elizabeth II wearing his signature Yeezy sunglasses.
He superimposed the image with massive, silver shades from his Yeezy x Gap collaboration collection. More so, these shades are yet to be out on the market. This alien-like eyewear has been promoted in the past by his ex Kim Kardashian and daughter North West in the past.
He also posted several pictures of people wearing his Yeezy sunglasses after attending the NY Fashion Week. This includes names like Vogue editor Anna Wintour and actor Chris Rock.

A third asked, “What’s everyone’s favorite tribute to the Queen so far? Gotta be Kanye’s YZY glasses edit on Instagram or Ray Parlour’s Cobra bomb for me.”

“Sometimes I look at Twitter the second I wake up and later wonder if I was dreaming or not, did Kanye post on IG the queen photoshopped with YZY glasses or was I still between realms,” wrote the fourth user.

However, this isn’t the first time Kanye has posted this picture on his Instagram Story. Right after the Queen’s death, he posted this very same picture on Instagram but later deleted it after backlash from fans. So, why did he re-upload the photoshopped picture once again? Was it a tribute or a mockery of the departed soul?
