His final video has left other TikTok stars, like Te-Erika, haunted. As a fellow content creator currently based in New Orleans, she too wonders when her last post will be.

May he rest in peace. How sad. I guess grandma must have been in the store grocery shopping while this tragedy took place? Imagine being in her shoes…. stepping outside the store into the parking lot where she has to witness what has just taken place with her beloved grandson. How awful and right before Christmas!
Sherilyn Price, Boogie B’s mother, said “He was the victim of decades of neglect.”
Sadly, this “neglect” is part of a larger agenda that many people of color (including Native Americans) are aware of. I am still waiting for the other segments of society to wake up to this reality… Hint: Study the obituaries listed in the previous 18 months.
