Juice Wrld’s Friends Say He Was Racially Profiled By Police

The world is still trying to make sense of the unfortunate passing of #JuiceWrld including his friends who believe the ultimate reason for the young rapper’s death was due to police racial profiling.

According to TMZ, sources who were close to Juice believe all of the run ins and pop up surprises he had with cops over the past year are more than suspicious, and the fact feds just happened to show up at multiple airports where he and/or his private jet were searched is enough to believe the situation might have something to do with race and rappers.

Law enforcement however say this is not the case and told TMZ in the past they’ve simply responded to calls for “prohibited items.”

In 2018 at NYC's La Guardia Airport Juice was arrested after a small amount of marijuana and bottles of codeine cough syrup were found in one of his checked bags. He was initially charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, and possession of a controlled substance but pled to a much lesser, non-criminal offense.

It’s been reported that 70 lbs. of marijuana was seized from Juice’s most recent and sadly his final flight to Chicago where sources say he had planned to throw a massive party on Sunday night to celebrate his 21st birthday.
