The tragic story of 15-year-old Lesandro (Junior) Guzman-Feliz has touched a lot of people. The teen was killed in a Bronx bodega in a horrible case of mistaken identity.
The story has shaken the internet to its core, with individuals and celebrities alike reaching out to his family. Bronx native Cardi B has stepped up and donated $8000 to the family via GoFundMe. The family has received over $150,000 for Junior’s funeral expenses.
Cardi also wrote a scathing message on Instagram criticizing police for non-action in this incident with the #JusticeForJunior.
#justiceforjunior 🇩🇴R.I.P. .These Bronx streets are ruthless .What piss me off the most is that these BX cops be harassing the shit outta people then they see a boy bleeding to death and ask what happen ?“uuuummmmmmmm😤😤😤 How bout you call the ambulance like ya be calling for back up when ya see nikkas smoking in front of a building !!!!! People be like”call the police!” Call the police!!” But for what the operators be asking you questions for like 4 minutes on the phone with an attitude and the cops come maaa lateeee.
Since the incident, thanks to the internet, all 6 murder suspects have been caught and charged with murder in NYC. There is also a petition going around asking to shut down the bodega where the incident occurred because the owners refused to help the young teen during the assault.
