Memphis Comedian Derrion ‘DMuney’ Childs Gunned Down Just Days After Joking About Young Dolph’s Death

Some are speculating that a Facebook post sparked retaliation.

Memphis comedian Derrion ‘DMuney’ Childs was gunned down in Memphis just days after Young Dolph was killed in the city.

According to SaycheeseTV, DMuney posted a couple distasteful posts on Facebook, following the news of Young Dolph’s tragic death.

“MANEEEEE THEM FOLKS JUST KILLED YOUNG DOLPH,” wrote the 21-year-old in a since-deleted post. “I LOVE MEMPHIS CUH WE SO GANGSTA,” adding laughing emojis at the end.

He then made a separate post, saying, “MANE CUHH IF YEEN FROM MEMPHIS OR IF YEEN THE POLICE JUST QUIT TRYNA SOLVE YOUNG DOLPH MURDER. THESE FOLKS DONE CAME & LOCKED MY GMA UP.”

According to The U.S. Sun, cops responded to a shooting that occurred on November 23 in Memphis. One of the three victims found was DMuney. One woman suffered non-critical injuries, and cops say another man was not injured.

Many are speculating that DMuney’s loss of life is related to his Facebook posts about Young Dolph. Just one day after Dolph’s murder, DMuney said, “if the news don’t post me as a Memphis legend when I die then they HATEDDDDD.”

Dolph, 36, was gunned down on November 17 at Makeda’s Cookies in Memphis. Both DMuney and Dolph’s murders are ongoing investigations.
