Queen Elizabeth II's passing led to many different responses. Many were positive, but some criticized the Queen and her role in Britain's history. This poster will highlight responses on social media, specifically Twitter, from university professors, many of which are negative toward the Queen. These Tweets and the responses they garnered raise many ethical questions such as "Should professors or educators be allowed to have social media accounts and share their personal opinions?" or "Does mentioning negative traits or issues a celebrity or famous person was involved in violate the notion of “don’t speak ill of the dead,” or does the practice of only positive obituaries violate the journalistic values of objectiveness, truth, and fairness?”
