As the death of Queen Elizabeth II was announced by Buckingham Palace, an Argentine TV host, Santiago Cúneo popped open a bottle of champagne live on air while announcing the passing of the British monarch.

In footage from the live show, the Argentinian journalist appears surrounded by white and blue balloons the colors of Argentina’s flag uncorking a champagne bottle and eating finger sandwiches.

Newsweek reports that Cúneo broke the news of Queen Elizabeth II’s death with incendiary words, announcing that “the old b**** has died. She’s done for good. Loud applause for Satan who has finally taken her.”

The controversial announcement by the Argentinian journalist quickly became viral in Argentina, with the hashtag #Cuneoalmediodia starting to trend on Twitter.

Many in Argentina criticized Cúneo’s bad taste and criticized those supporting his flamboyant performance on air.

A user wrote on Twitter: “I am Argentinian and this guy doesn’t represent me. We are sorry for this loss.”

Another user wrote: “What a horrible thing… how much bad taste.” While the journalist celebrated the death of the 96-year-old queen, the Argentinian government posted a tribute and said the country ‘accompanies the British people and her family in this moment of grief.

Edujandon.com reports that this is not the first time Cúneo has sparked controversy. He was fired in 2019 from a Cronica TV after he allegedly spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
