During the 4th of July weekend, news broke that popular TikTok star, Matima Miller also known as Swavy was fatally shot. Many of his fans were devastated by the news after his family made the news public on social media.
The post read, “On the behalf of our family, we would like to say thank you for the continued supports and love for Matima Miller also known as Swavy or Babyface. It is with great sadness that we announce Swavy’s passing on 07/05/2021.”
It went on to say, “He was taken away from us due to a senseless act of gun violence. Unfortunately, due to legality, we are not able to provide much information on the events surrounding his passing. However, the family is working diligently to get justice for Swavy.”
TV talk show host, Wendy Williams would report on Swavy’s death during her Hot Topics segment but many viewers were not happy with how she delivered the story. During the segment, Williams had told her audience to clap if they knew who Swavy was. When they showed that they didn’t know about him, Williams turned her attention to the TikTok star having more followers than her.
Fans would take to social media to call her insensitive. See the posts below.
