A group of Irish soccer fans are under fire for bellowing out an insensitive song, celebrating the death of Queen Elizabeth II. A video of the shocking cheer appeared on social media this week.

The video captured fans at Dublin’s Tallaght Stadium singing, “Lizzy’s in a box,” to the tune of KC & the Sunshine Band’s, Give It Up. Many were appalled at the scene from the stadium.

That’s a pretty shocking scene to witness.

Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96. A spokesperson from the palace released a statement on Thursday regarding the queen’s passing.

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the statement read. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

Queen Elizabeth’s reign lasted 70 years.
