A black rapper XXXTentacion has sparked outrage after he released the video for his latest track “Look At Me!” , which shows him lynching a young white boy.
XXXTentacion’s video shows him fitting a noose around the neck of a child and raising him off the ground on a stage. The child’s feet are seen twitching before he goes limp.
The controversial video showed reenactments of historic, racially-charged killings of Emmett Till, Philando Castile, and depicted the death of Heather Hyer, an anti-protester who was killed after being run over at an alt-right march in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month.
XXXTentacion, who was recently charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness-tampering, also included a scene of himself being hung from a tree along with two other actors.
The rapper claims the video decries racial violence across the board and insists that he is trying to demonstrate what the effects will be on the younger generation if the same violence continues.
At the end of the video, the musician delivers message on racial violence and calls for it to come to an end for the sake of younger generations.
People however slammed him for using a child to make his point in such a way.
Watch the outrageous video below.
