Rapper faces backlash after releasing music video which shows him hanging a white child

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.

He insists he is trying to demonstrate what the lasting effects will be on the younger generation if the same violence continues. At one point, he points to the black child and tells him something before wrapping the noose around the white child's neck

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.
