Rapper sparks outrage with video showing him LYNCH a boy

A rapper has been condemned over his latest music video which shows him lynching a young white boy. 

XXXTentacion's video for Look at Me shows him fitting a noose around the young blond-haired child's neck and raising him off the ground on a stage. 

The child's feet are seen twitching - a common phenomenon during hanging - before he goes limp.

Elsewhere in the video, XXXTentacion, 19, appears hanging himself along with two other black men. 

The video also includes reenactments of the historic, racially-charged killings of Emmett Till and Philando Castile. 

The recent death of Heather Hyer, an anti-protester who was killed after being run over at an alt-right march in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, was also depicted.

The rapper claims the video decries racial violence across the board and says the lynching scene  is a part of that. 

He insists he is trying to demonstrate what the lasting effects will be on the younger generation if the same violence continues.  

But critics slammed him for using a child to make his point with such 'disturbing' imagery.

'I'm actually disturbed at the video of XXXTentacion featuring a young boy being hanged. This is beyond a joke,' said one person. 

'Don't make excuses for this sickness, simulated violence towards children is not cool or progressive. Not even to make a point. Its dangerous,' they said. 

'I have a huge problem with xxxtentacion and his new video. It doesn't have anything to do with equality what so ever,' another said. 

One person accused the rapper of inciting a 'race war'.  

'If the RACIST POS xxxtentacion gets his race war, who do you think will be left standing?' one person said.
