“Chicago bridge is NOT down. I repeat; Chicago bridge is NOT down!”
In case you don’t get it, this is referring to the American rap singer Queen Latifah being alive and well. She is well known for the musical ‘Chicago’.
London Bridge is down
September 8 is a somber day for the whole world when Buckingham palace announced that Queen Elizabeth II had died peacefully in her sleep.
The palace phrase to signal everyone that the Queen is gone is “London Bridge is down.” So therefore, TDM is reminding you that London Bridge is down, not Chicago.
In a tweet, the palace announced that the Queen passed away at 96 years old after reigning for 70 years.
“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.”
Queen Latifah is alive
When people learned about the Queen’s passing, a lot of people took to social media to give their good wishes and condolences to the Royal Family.
However, Queen Latifah unexpectedly trended when her name got associated with the tweets.
It started when a Twitter user with the handle @JadeForeverr tweeted how her mom mistakenly thought that it was Queen Latifah who passed away and not Queen Elizabeth II.
The tweet quickly went viral, with people retweeting it. I wonder how Queen Latifah will react when she founds out. Another Twitter user with the handle @jrbland tweeted a similar scenario when he told his friend about the Queen’s passing.
Here are other tweets jumping on the Queen Latifah trend:
Someone also said to protect Queen Latifah at all costs. I guess it’s true that no matter how dark the day is, you can still find ways to chuckle, right?
