MUIR OF ORD, SCOTLAND: A group of angry locals surrounded a fish and chip shop after the owner celebrated the Queen's death by raising a bottle of champagne and raising a toast to the news. Jaki Pickett, the owner of Jaki Fish and Chip Shop in Muir of Ord, Scotland held up a placard proclaiming ‘Lizard Liz is dead’ in a now-deleted video, and shouted “Woohoo! London Bridge has fallen!” as she tried to spray a bottle of fizzy wine, Daily Mail reported.

The video which was taken just moments after the death of the Queen was announced, triggered a lot of people in a wrong way and a mob of locals decided to take the entire matter into their own hands by pelting eggs and ketchup at the windows of the shop. A photo of the vandalism was shared on Twitter on Saturday night showing the front of the shop with a shattered window and a hole in the middle. The angry locals reportedly vandalized the property on Thursday, September 8.

The owner had to flee the car park escorted by police to loud boos from the crowd. The shop, which has since been overwhelmed with bad reviews, is plastered with chalkboards that claim the New World Order lizards created Covid-19, 9/11 was an inside job and 5G is a brain control ray. Police Scotland was also called to the shop on Thursday evening. A Police Scotland spokesperson said on Friday “Shortly after 8.30 pm on Thursday, September 8 officers attended at a business in the Seaforth Road area of Muir of Ord following a report of a large crowd gathered in the area. Officers remained at the scene to ensure the safety of all present and the group subsequently dispersed peacefully. No further police action has been required.” 


Fortunately, no one was injured during the incident. Since the video went viral the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) revoked Jaki’s membership. They said “The NFFF has been made aware of social media posts made by one of our members that are in extremely bad taste and completely against all of the values our organization and industry hold dear. We have discussed this as a board and have taken the decision to revoke the membership of this business owner and we will be writing to them and asking them to remove all association of the NFFF from her business, social media and websites.”



David Mackay, 27, from Muir of Ord said he was angered by the post. He said "The comments on her Facebook page were disgusted and against her, quite rightly so. I heard that large crowds headed down to the chip shop and were protesting outside. Some threw eggs at her window, some squirted tomato ketchup over the windows. I drove down myself to go and see what had happened and the streets were packed and the police were there. Then, Jaki, the owner of the chip shop and the lady in the video, was driving away with a police escort and her car was pelted with rocks and other objects. The police stayed for a while longer incase there was any further vandalism to the shop, but there wasn't. It made me feel angry. It's given Muir of Ord a bad reputation. Some English people might think that we are all laughing and celebrating about the queen dying but that is not the case at all. At the end of the day, I'm not a die hard royalist myself but the Queen is an inspiration for many people.So many people take warmth and comfort from her Christmas speeches, myself included. You don't have to be a royalist to realise and understand that it's still the death of a 96-year-old woman, who has done so much for the country."
