Previously, YK Osiris offered to pay the funeral costs for a teenager named Tyre Sampson, who reportedly fell to his death from a free fall ride at Icon Park in Orlando. The tragic incident was caught on camera and unfortunately spread around the internet. Via social media, the rapper went on to say “If anybody knows his family, tell them to DM me because I want to pay for his funeral cost.” Now, the family of Sampson has called out YK, saying he used the young teen’s name for clout, as he never paid the costs to help the family, despite saying he did.
Tyre’s brother—Jrocc Jr. addressed the matter during a Facebook post, even providing screenshots to prove what YK Osiris didn’t do. “YkOsiri or whatever dude name is canceled. Used lil bro for pure clout,” said Tyre’s brother. He continued saying, “Didn’t pay a dime but told the world otherwise. Even posted a fake screenshot of a GoFundMe donation. Stop pretending you about giving back to the community just to get your sales up. Lame as hell.”
Another Facebook post found Jrocc providing an actual screenshot of donations on the GoFundMe page for his brother while addressing people who wanted to argue about the alleged YK Osiris donation. Jrocc said, “I’m not even gone argue about it. Top donation is $500, as shown. We didn’t ask, [Osiris] volunteered. Stop lying to these people. He used my bro for clout.. thas that. The services were covered, and it was beautiful. That’s all that matters ??.” Take a look above.
