On Friday, August 31, those who knew and loved her gathered for Aretha Franklin's funeral. During the service, Bishop Charles Ellis II singled out Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who was present in the congregation, bringing attention to her repeated insults from President Trump on Twitter:

Everybody just point over there and tell her 'We got your back. Come on, say it so everybody can hear you out there, 'We got your back!'

Waters acknowledged Ellis's message by standing and giving the Wakandan salute from the mega-hit Marvel movie Black Panther. The crowd went wild!

Twitter most definitely had Congresswoman Waters's back.


There's nothing quite like one icon referencing another.



"Auntie Maxine" giving the salute was one of many memorable moments from the Queen of Soul's funeral.



Some online doubted her gesture was actually a reference to Wakanda.



But, either way, Congresswoman waters is a winner in Twitter's books.


(Plus, many continue to believe she's Wakandan royalty, no matter what the sketpics say.)

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
