The family of slain civil rights icon Emmett Till is furious at Lil Wayne over a verse on Future’s remix to “Karate Chop.”

In the song, Weezy raps, “I pop a lot of pain pills / beat that p*ssy up like Emmett Till.”

Till was a 14-year-old African-American from Chicago who was tortured and murdered in Mississippi in 1955 for allegedly flirting with a white woman. Till’s death galvanized the Civil Rights Movement after Till’s mother decided to showcase Till’s horrifying fatal wounds by holding an open casket funeral so the world could see the reality of racism and the brutality of her son’s murder.
