” These Bronx streets are ruthless.”
A week after his passing, J.Lo posted a clip from Junior’s funeral with a short caption saying, “#justiceforjunior.”
Cardi B showed support early on, with a heartfelt caption.
T.I. who is quite vocal about social justice spoke to the press candidly when asked what our communities can do to avoid these types of situations: “It starts
with a dream[…]What you dream you can accomplish tomorrow will keep you from making [bad] decisions.”
Ebro hopped on Twitter to share some of his thoughts.
Your killers will be found.
You will not be forgotten.#RIPJunior
Love & Light.

Monie Love also took to Twitter in support of the movement, posting a letter addressed to the New York City Commissioner of Consumer Affairs. The text asks for the store owners to be held accountable for “standing idly” while the 15-year old was dragged out of their shop moments before being stabbed repeatedly with a machete. It emphasizes the “good moral character required by law” that could have prevented this loss of life.
The owner of this store could have saved Juniors life 🙁 This boy was afraid, and scared and they still told him to get out! Mind you, the owner has known Junior all his life… Even when he came back after being stabbed multiple times they did nothing #JUSTICEFORJUNIOR
such a sad day man, makes me wanna call my little cousins and tell them to stay home for the weekend! #justiceforjunior 15 years old! stabbed to death, & no one bothered to help, Lord Please Send Love & Protection to his mother! we’re losing the kids faster & faster everyday!
Heartbroken by the violence that I’ve been seeing these last couple of months. Mis condolencias a la familia de Junior. Let’s talk about LIFE NOT DEATH https://www.instagram.com/p/BkVf3rmh2SE/?utm_source=ig_twitter_share&igshid=1fqk3f646uw2k …
And this may or may not be Cardi B, but the support is appreciated either way.
Cardi B donated $8000 to #JUSTICEFORJUNIOR and didn’t even brag about it. Amazing.
