Fidel Castro’s body isn’t cold, but many surely hoping the opportunity to dance on his grave could present itself. The longtime Cuban dictator’s death has caused some to celebrate, others to mourn, and plenty to offer up commentary.
Of course there have been jokes, but plenty of the back and forth is about how much praise do you offer a guy who also murdered people and ruled with an iron fist? Also, is it a coincident that after reportedly 600+ assassination attempts, Castro finally dies after Cheeto Jesus is elected president of the United States?
See some notable reactions below and on the following pages.
Fidel Castro has died. Beloved and despised. A symbol of resistance against western imperialist oppression and labeled an oppressor himself
