Fans of Takeoff flooded the comments in rage at the tribute, one user claiming that the Prince family made the tribute about them instead of focusing on the “Jealousy” artist. 

“This is so disgusting. You trample around this man as he dies, then you set up a memorial with your name elevated in flowers and his pictures sitting below on the floor. I mean, come on! The memorial is about HIM. Not you”

J. Prince’s son, J. Prince Jr, was there at the time of Takeoff’s passing, and many highlighted he did not do anything to help.

Another user insinuated that them putting “HTOWN” in large letters had a deeper meaning.

“So cringe… basically saying Houston over everything… this has nothing to do with honoring him.”
