We'll talk ill of you, alive or dead

Uju Anya was first out of the box with an insulting tweet about Queen Elizabeth II just before she died.
It brought much discussion and pushback.
She keeps pushing.
“Speak no ill of the dead” is a weapon that’s leveled against the oppressed to silence them, to lionize oppressors, and to sanitize their history.
Thanks to her tweet, people will speak ill of her for many years to come.
