KANYE West was slammed for posting and later deleting an “offensive” photo of the Queen hours after her death.
Britain’s longest-reigning monarch left the nation heartbroken as she died at her Balmoral Estate in Scotland on Thursday aged 96.
While many celebrities paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Kanye chose to share a “disgusting” Photoshopped image of her.
The 45-year-old rapper posted a black and white snap of the Queen with one of his new pair of Yeezy sunglasses on her face.
Critics were horrified by the “disrespectful” picture and shared their outrage on social media.
One wrote on Instagram: “We know he loves to shock but couldn’t he have held back a day? It’s so disrespectful and so offensive to so many people.”
Another raged, “This is absolutely disgusting,” while a third posted, “He’s actually a sick man.”
Kanye deleted the photo within minutes of sharing it and replaced it with two photos of the Queen.
In another photo in the post, he wrote: “Life is precious. Release all grudges today. Lean into the light.”
Buckingham Palace confirmed yesterday that the Queen has passed away and has made her son Charles king.
The palace said in a statement: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.
Kanye’s ex Kim Kardashian shared a tribute to the beloved monarch on Instagram.
The 41-year-old reality star shared a user’s post showing three rainbows over famous UK landmarks including Balmoral.
The tweet read: “Her Majesty the Queen sent us three rainbows just as she was crossing this bridge.
“One in Balmoral, one in Windsor Castle and a double #rainbow over Buckingham Palace. She lets us know she made it and everything will be fine.”
Kim also shared a black and white photo of a young queen and wrote “rest in peace” alongside it.
The SKIMS founder filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage.
They have four children together – North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.
Last week Kanye published a long series of online rants against Kim.
In a shocking post, the rapper threatened to send her recent ex Pete Davidson, 28, to the “trauma unit.”
“Ask Pete how my kids’ tattoos are doing in the trauma ward,” he posted, referring to the tattoo on Pete’s neck he got while he was dating Kim.
The tattoo reads “KNSCP” – it represents the initials of Kim and the children she shares with Kanye.
The unexpected post came just a month after Kim and Pete split.
During Kim’s nine-month relationship with Pete, Kanye had called him a “d**khead,” threatened to “beat his ass,” and accused the actor of trying to “destroy” his family in various rants.
Last week, the musician also threatened his Kim with legal action as he continues to lash out at the private school his children attend.
Kanye fumed, “I went crazy before I stopped going crazy. It’s not Calabasas or Hulu where my kids go to school.”
He continued, “I’m not the crazy guy here. It’s over!
“I will not stop until I have a say in my children, no matter what the law requires.”
He captioned the post: “Come and get me, I’m a man of God. Dad’s job is to be the bad guy sometimes.”
He also lashed out at Kris Jenner for getting Kim and Kylie Jenner to pose for Playboy magazine.
