Video of Justin Trudeau Singing Bohemian Rhapsody While in London for Queen’s Funeral Causes Uproar

LONDON, ENGLAND – Leaders from nations around the globe have flocked to the United Kingdom to mourn the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Prime Minister has spent the last few days in London attending the funeral of Queen Elizabeth and marked the event in a unique way.

A video showing Trudeau singing along to Queen’s “Bohemian Rapsody” while standing by a piano has gone viral. Some people are mocking the Canadian leader, while others are confused as to the context surrounding the video.

“How drunk do you have to be in order to think singing Queen songs is a tribute to Queen Elizabeth?,” said one person on Twitter.

“Trudeau Singing at the bar on the Eve of the queens burial is a complete embarrassment to Canada. Fitting tho him singing “easy come,easy go and nothing really matters to me,that’s his motto in life #TrudeauMustGo #TrudeauHasGotToGo #IAmNotABot,” posted another. 

While some Canadians couldn’t care less!

“Everyone who’s salty about Trudeau singing Bohemian Rhapsody two nights before the funeral should come to a funeral on the east coast some time, learn to have some fun with your deaths you babies,” said one Twitter user. 

“Trudeau singing is the new Obama in a tan suit,” wrote another.

The Prime Minister’s Office has confirmed to The Brandon Gonez Show that on Saturday, September 17th Justin Trudeau was singing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody in the Savoy Hotel, just a few kilometres from where the Queen was laid to rest.
