Dozens of celebrities, athletes and politicians have taken to social media reflecting on life in the wake of Nipsey Hussle’s tragic death. Toya Wright is the latest to pen a message following the senseless act of violence. However, she took a different approach from the others by sending a message to her fans in the wake of the tragedy.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, the reality star posted, "Give people their flowers while they can still smell them," using the rapper's shocking murder as an example.
Of course, Toya is no stranger to the toll of gun violence. Her brothers Joshua and Ryan "Rudy" Johnson were both tragically murdered in New Orleans in 2016.
Meanwhile, Toya's older daughter, Reginae Carter, also shared a heartfelt post of her own, criticizing the senseless shootings that have been taking place lately.
“This world is getting scary! Too much killing, clout chasing is at its finest, and don't nobody wanna support one another. Honestly, my heart can't take,” she began.
The influencer and reality star offered a suggestion on how to improve things. "We gotta change y'all! It stars with this generation! You guys gotta start raising our kids how you want the next generation to be like. Teach them unity, respect and how to love. Make sure you tell your loved ones you love them every chance you get because you never know when it will be your last."
Tackling the beast of social media and the role it plays, she continued, "I understand social media has a lot to do with what's going on in the world. Understand this tho... You don't have to fake it to kick it, you don't have to put someone else down to stand up, and you definitely don't have to take someone else's life because you're not happy with yours."
The 20-year-old concluded, "When people start realizing this... life would be better."
Nipsey’s tragic death at age 33 certainly has those who loved him reflecting on life.
