Phoebe Bridgers shares grief after “all the injured lives destroyed during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II”.

Phoebe Bridgers shared a social media post mourning “all lives” that were “destroyed” during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen died in Balmoral on Thursday (September 8) at the age of 96, prompting a spate of tributes from the likes of Mick Jagger, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John.

However, indie rocker Bridgers shared a post on Instagram criticizing Britain’s imperial history.

The post was originally shared on the RISEindigenous account, an initiative of indigenous artists.

It said: “Today we mourn the loss of all the stolen, injured and traumatized lives that were affected and destroyed during the reign of Qween Elizabeth II.

“Today is a brutal reminder that war criminals are honored while entire populations and societies bear the scars of colonial genocide, invasion, religious persecution and white supremacy.”

Bridgers shared the post with followers on her Instagram Stories page without further comment.

While the worst atrocities of the British Empire were committed before Queen Elizabeth’s reign, the Queen was nonetheless criticized throughout her reign for some alleged failings of the monarchy.
