West Coast rapper Game, Cardi B, La La Anthony and Fat Joe are in a world of pain right now. The foursome have expressed their sadness and frustration following the mistaken identity slaying of 15-year-old New York student Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.
The high-profile celebs went to Instagram this past Sunday and poured out their emotions of Guzman-Feliz’s fatal stabbing.
I just landed from LA & came straight to the Bronx to say a prayer & pay my respects to Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz. I had chills in this spot. So much love out there tonight for him. This innocent boy and his family have been on my mind & my heart nonstop…it’s heartbreaking what happened to him. I’m posting this because I have a platform to spread love and light on his life because most of what u see on the gram is the horrific way he died. Praying for you Junior and your mom and your whole family. Would love to help his family in anyway I can. If anyone can connect me pls do. There is also a go fund me account. This hurts 💔🙏🏽Rest in heaven & be at peace Junior 🕊💔🙏🏽😢 #justiceforjunior #justiceforjunior
While I’m up & starting my day… I remembered someone sending me a photo of a mother & her child Lesandro “JUNIOR” Guzman-Feliz, a 15 year old who lived in the Bronx, New York that was mistaken for someone else & brutally attacked by 5 cowards, drug out of a corner store in his own neighborhood & stabbed repeatedly with 2 machete’s & 3 knives. 15 years old… I watched the video & wished I hadn’t & im still in disbelief… I can only imagine how terrified, confused & alone he must’ve been during what would be the last few minutes of his life & that alone hurts even me deeply !!! & the pain his mother & family must feel right now has to be tremendous. I am utterly disgusted with this story & how a life can be taken away from a child in that manner. My heart goes out to his immediate family & definitely to his mother. I am so sorry for your loss. I really hate the blind ignorance in this country especially when it takes a childs life. Losing a child is my absolute worst nightmare & this has sincerely touched me. Also sorry for feelings or pain brought back about with this post as I was just made aware of this tragedy this a few days ago & forgot to post 🙏🏾 #JusticeForJunior
It’s been a sad week for the Bronx. God bless Junior and his family, this is every parents nightmare. i grew up with maybe 45 kids and no lie at least 30 got killed before they even experienced life. I pray every night for them , unfortunately violence seems normal in the hood but its not. All these kids are future Kings and Queens in my eyes. may God bless the youth. RIP Junior bx love

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.

Guzman-Felix’s death ultimately came as a result of mistaken identity.
