The behavior of the newly crowned King of England, King Charles III, toward a black man during the funeral of his mother has drawn criticism from some Nigerians.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, King Charles may be seen in the viral video avoiding shaking hands with a black guy in the audience at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on September 19th.
Social media users were outraged by the incident and many wondered what the black man was doing there.
While some argued that the King had not intended it to be thus, others thought the new monarch might be a fervent “Racist.”
