Rapper XXXtentacion’s new music video has sparked outrage for depicting a white child being ‘lynched’ as a black child watches.
The video for his single “Look At Me!,” which was released Tuesday, covers a variety of racially-charged topics, including police brutality, protests and lynchings.
Warning: Video contains graphic imagery and language:
It shows imagery of the high profile deaths of Philando Castile, Heather Heyer and Emmett Till. XXXtentacion, a 19-year old Florida-Based rapper, according to Fox News, also hangs from a noose himself while rapping about racial violence.
Then, it shows a man walking a white and black child into a theater. The white child’s head is placed into a noose and he’s lifted into the air.
LaShawnna Stanley, the casting director for the video, told Fox News that it was difficult to find a parent that would allow their child to be hanged in the video.
“I called a lot of parents. It was a direct booking. No one was OK with their white child getting lynched,” Stanley told Fox News. “With all the racial tension in the world right now, they were nervous.”
