MTV’s Dometi Pongo shares more about PnB Rock’s tragic murder following the online targeting of the late rapper’s girlfriend


We reported earlier that American rapper PnB Rock was shot dead in a robbery attempt which occurred on Monday, September 12 in Southern LA. The former Atlantic Records rapper was with his girlfriend who shared a photo of their meal at Roscoe’s including their location on Instagram moments before the tragedy.

Since then, Rock’s girlfriend has been blamed for his death and targeted by online abusers even though there’s no evidence that the Instagram post led the assailants to where they were.

iIn a 4-minute clip, MTV News’ Dometi Pongo discuses more about the backlash, citing several other cases of celebrities being targeted by armed robbers because of their expensive jewelries, including how late American rapper Pop Smoke was killed in 2020.

Check out all Pongo had to say in the short clip below.
