Adoph Robert Thornton Jr, better known as Young Dolph, was assassinated on the morning of November 17. The 36-year-old rapper was killed in Memphis, where he grew up, in a shop where he went to buy cookies for his mother. An armed man appeared out of nowhere and shot him. So far, no suspect has been arrested yet. Memphis Police are still investigating what really happened.
Many celebrities such as Gucci Mane or Megan Thee Stallion have expressed their sadness through posts on their various social networks. Tributes and condolences have not stopped raining throughout this dark day. The Hip Hop community in general and Young Dolph’s friends in particular have posted photos of the rapper with heartbreaking captions.
The singer Monica, known in particular for her featuring with Brandy, has therefore decided to follow suit. She posted a screenshot from her call log from November 16 where it is seen that she has been in communication with the rapper. The public did not like it at all. Monica quickly faced backlash from people who interpreted her post as inappropriate.
The singer eventually deleted this post but left a nice photo of Young Dolph on her newsfeed. “ My heart is in a thousand pieces. I had no idea last night would be the last time I would see your face! I told you that you were my brother, you will be it FOREVER ”, we can read in the caption.
