UK Channel 5 chose ‘Emoji Movie’ Over Queen’s Funeral Telecast

One major British TV network, Paramount’s Channel 5, is the only one avoiding the coverage of the Queen’s funeral services and choosing an Emoji Movie over it.

Channel 5 came under fire on social media for choosing cartoon programming ‘Emoji Movie’ over actual history being made, as BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, and Channel 4 all continued to air footage of Queen Elizabeth II’s burial procession or related documentaries.

A common meme depicts Louis, Archie, and Lilibet, the royal grandchildren, sitting at home to watch cartoons rather than dressing up and following the parade of family members like King Charles III, Camilla, the Queen Consort, and other members of the Royal family.

“Can’t believe we are finally here, it’s going to be such a painful watch,” reads another widely circulated tweet. Good luck to everyone who watches “The Emoji Movie” this morning on Channel 5

However, other social media users appear to be a little bit more sympathetic. Channel 5 is viewed by some as performing a public service by keeping the youngest viewers occupied with Emojis and cartoon mice while others in their families participate in the more solemn events today due to the closure of schools for the Queen’s funeral.

And some were much funnier in their approach
