King Charles' Fiery New Portrait Roasted Online for Looking Hell-ish

KING CHARLES PORTRAIT DRAWS FIERY COMPARISONS Pits of Hell, Satan, Blood?!?

King Charles proudly unveiled the first official portrait of himself since his coronation last year — and let’s just say … the internet’s reaction is more fire and brimstone than royal praise.

HRH was at Buckingham Palace Tuesday with Queen Camila, where he pulled down a massive curtain to reveal the highly-anticipated portrait — which features a fiery red backdrop, to much shock from royal fans and normies everywhere.

Even Charles’ finest Welsh Guards uniform for the painting couldn’t distract from the real star of the show — that bold, brash backdrop, which led to a tidal wave of online critiques/jokes.

One X user tweeted, “Who approved King Charles III’s new portrait cuz it looks like he’s in hell?!” Others echoed a similar sentiment … saying it looked like he’d accidentally wandered into in the fiery pits of Dante’s inferno.

In fact, you could argue the whole thing was a full-blown roast session … with some saying Charles looked “villainous,” while others saying he appeared to be drenched in blood … some even going as far to say the whole thing looked satanic.

Obviously, it’s probably not the feedback Jonathan Yeo wanted after the 3 years it took for him to paint it at his London studio — which also included 4 sit-downs with Charles himself.

Nonetheless, King Charles’ portrait in all its fiery glory will be on display at London’s Philip Mould Gallery for a month-long exhibit. After that, it’s off to the historic Draper’s Hall, once owned by none other than King Henry VIII himself.

Looks like this painting’s getting the royal treatment … whether anyone likes it or not.
