David Bowie’s funeral may be set in America based upon the latest reports. The news indicates that Bowie’s wife, Iman Abdulmajid, may be planning to hold the funeral procession somewhere in New York City. The Bowie family has maintained a Manhattan apartment for years, so the reported funeral plans make practical sense, but some fans in England are hoping the funeral would be held within the United Kingdom. In addition, having the Bowie funeral location in NYC also creates another problem: The Westboro Baptist Church is quite thrilled that they could be given the chance to protest and picket the controversial rocker’s funeral.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer,” the statement from the family read. “While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”

As might be expected, the Westboro Baptist Church will not honor that request at all. Within hours of the announcement, they were asking for the details of Bowie’s funeral, and now that reports are claiming it may be held in NYC, the WBC is already practicing their lines.
