In an interview with TMZ, Swavy’s mother, Chanelle Clark shared: “I had to lay there with my son… and I asked God, why did you let me see that. And I had to think about that he wouldn’t anyone else to be down there with him but his mom. I had to see my son down there shot up. To see something like that as a mother, it literally messes you up…”
The social media star, whose real name was Matima Miller, was gunned down on Monday, and his family shared the news online, adding that they are “working diligently to get justice for Swavy.”
Chanelle went on: “… Wendy Williams as a mother, how do you put a child out there like that. Nobody knew him like that.
“… My son shouldn’t have been shot down in the street like that for someone to recognize who he is…

“… I deserve an apology. But at this point, I’m so pissed off… because you did him like like… I’m looking for an apology. I do want an apology. But at the same time, I’m pissed with Wendy.”
Swavy’s older brother, Rahkim, also told the outlet in the interview: “Wendy has always been a messy person. That’s what her life consists of- this gossip and reporting stories. But this isn’t just any other story. This is not a highlight. This is not a Hot Topic. This is our real life. We’re dealing with this in reality.
“So for her to speak on the events surrounding my brother’s death before she reached out to our family. She didn’t send condolences. She didn’t even report the right stories. It’s one thing to take public knowledge and put it out there, but you gave a false narrative you gave a false story.
“You painted him as a thug, as a drug dealer, as someone who was trying to be in the streets… and that wasn’t the type of person that he was…
“As a black woman and as a black mother, you didn’t have any empathy at all for my family… words cannot explain how I feel. I’m so angry. I’m so upset. I’m sad. It’s just a lot going on.”
