Michael Jackson’s son Prince has shared an emotional video message following the Texas school massacre captured by his late father in 2001.
Michael Jackson’s son Prince has shared a touching video of his late father during Tuesday’s Texas school massacre that left 19 children and two teachers dead.
After 18-year-old Salvador Ramos opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, many celebrities took to social media to condemn America’s gun laws.
One of them was the eldest son of the King of Pop, who took to Instagram to demand political change, using footage of Jacko to ensure it wouldn’t go unnoticed.
This warning was recorded in 2001 – 8 years before the superstar passed away.
In the video, Michael said: “Who among us would have believed that the sounds of children in their playgrounds would be replaced by automatic machine gunfire at our schools.
“That the sound of a little girl jumping rope would be overshadowed by the shrill screams of children dodging bullets.
“However, instead of loving our children more, we install metal detectors in our schools.”
Prince, 25, captioned the video with the words: “No caption needed,” along with a crying emoji.
He continued: “It is truly heartbreaking to see all this ignorant and needless violence being carried out against innocent and defenseless people. I am still speechless and I am. I don’t know what else to do but SAD TO DO.
“Please keep the victims and survivors of these terrible crimes in your thoughts/prayers and hearts.”
Countless fans and celebrities were quick to react to the post, with Michael’s sister Latoya writing: “So sad. This deserves a re-post!” – which she did.
One fan added: “I so wish Michael was still here. He will continue to make such a difference. He’s done so much for our world. He’s foresaw. anyone the way of this world. I miss him so much.”
Another said: “But everyone seems to think it’s just getting started! This isn’t new! Your dad has worked so hard! Nice to see all you do to keep the move going! His estate continues.”
A third replied: “Thank you Prince. We need to speak up and speak on behalf of your father. He has sent so many messages. If he were here now… I can imagine. I can’t imagine it. I’m still in pain and feel really sad and helpless. Let’s speak up, act and unite to prevent incidents like this from happening again!”
Since it was revealed, Ramos has written a warning saying he will ‘shoot an elementary school student’ on Facebook 15 minutes before opening fire.
The 18-year-old, wearing armor and armed with an AR-15, started the killing spree after barricading himself inside a fourth grade classroom.
He was eventually killed by a police tactical unit.
It was the deadliest school shooting since the similarly gruesome Sandy Hook massacre nearly a decade ago in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza first killed his mother before killing 26 people.
