Sick Pop Smoke fan snuck into funeral to take pics of rapper’s open casket
Pop Smoke's family was left in distress after a fan snuck into the late rapper's funeral and took pictures of his lifeless body in an open casket.
Fans lined the streets of Brooklyn to pay their last respects to the rapper as his coffin was carried through his hometown in an elaborate curtained hearse pulled along by two matching white horses.
And the rapper's brother Mike Dee has spoken out about the disrespectful ordeal, calling out the behaviour "clout chasing".
He took to his Instagram story following the unfortunate incident, writing: "Who TF sat in the funeral and took a pic of my brother in the casket?"
He added: "Like n****s got no life, no morals, why even show up to the funeral if you gonna be on some fan s**t?
"The f***ing world we live in son n***s wanna sit on social media and do anything to gain clout."
Despite barricades being lined along the pavements of the residential neighbourhood of Canarsie to keep fans at bay, some heartless fans stopped at nothing to take a snap of the casket.
The up and coming musician was gunned down at his Hollywood Hills home on February 19.
He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but despite best efforts to save him, the star died of a gunshot wound to his chest.
While a private funeral was held for close friends and family, the procession allowed fans to say their final goodbye before his coffin is laid to rest in a Brooklyn cemetry.
It was initially reported Pop's death was the result of a robbery gone wrong, with the rapper posting photos and videos of his designer goods and stacks of cash hours before the shooting.
In one of his last Instagram clips, Pop accidentally flashed up his home address to his thousands of followers .
So far no arrests have been made on the case.
A statement from the rapper's record label Republic Records confirmed the sad news of his death Twitter , telling fans: "We are devastated by the unexpected and tragic loss of @POPSMOKE10.
"Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family, friends and fans, as we mourn this loss together."
