In the wake of Queen Elizabeth dying yesterday at the age of 96, tributes have been pouring in for her from all over the world. One of the most bizarre ones, however, came from the pop star Cher, who strangely called Her Majesty a cow.

Cher Calls Queen A Cow

“Am Sad About The Passing Of Queen Elizabeth II,” Cher tweeted. “I Had Honor Of Meeting Her. I Was In Long Line of Ppl Waiting 2 Meet Her, Yet When She Got 2 Me, She Asked Me Pertinent Questions, & Seemed Genuinely Interested In Talking 2 Me.”

“I’m Proud She Was a [cow emoji] & Happy She Had a Great Sense Of Humor,” she added.

The New York Post reported that it seemed Cher had been trying to use a goat emoji so that she could call the Queen a GOAT, an acronym that stands for “greatest of all time,” but she mistakenly used the cow emoji instead.

Social Media Users Respond

Social media users were extremely confused by the post, with one asking, “What’s with the cow emoji?!”

Others thought that Cher was making a reference to the fact that both she and the Queen have the star sign of Taurus, which is represented by a bull.

“I first read it as cow and thought to myself I know Cher is not calling the queen a cow. So I thought about it for a second and realized it was the astrological sign Taurus,” commented another user, with a third asserting, “Taurus queens!”

Cher has yet to clear up any confusion about her tweet. She met the Queen multiple times over the years, first doing so in 1988 at the premiere of premiere of Steven Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun. The artist later met the Queen again when she sang at the 2001 Royal Variety Performance in London.

Queen Dies ‘Peacefully’

The Queen died “peacefully” at her Balmoral home in Scotland on Thursday after suffering from various health and mobility issues in recent months. Her son Charles will now be taking the throne, and he will hence forth be known as King Charles III.

“The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” Charles said in a statement shared on The Royal Family’s official Twitter account.

“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother,” he added. “I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”

Queen’s Final Months

In her final months, the Queen experienced various health problems that included a battle with COVID-19 back in February. In the weeks leading up to her Platinum Jubilee, which was meant to celebrate her record-breaking 70 years on the British throne, back in June, she took part in fewer royal events because of mobility problems. She then missed a service that was held during her Jubilee celebrations because of “some discomfort.”

Taking the throne in 1952, the Queen was the longest-serving monarch in British history, and the second-longest-serving monarch in world history, following France’s King Louis XIV, who ruled for 72 years and 110 days.

The Queen is a true legend, and there will never be another one like her. Cher should really delete that tweet and post another one, because nobody should be calling Queen Elizabeth a cow, even if it was a mistake.
