Rihanna on Tuesday called for an end to gun violence as she mourned the loss of her cousin, who was reportedly gunned down after Christmas in her homeland of Barbados, hours after the two were together for the holidays. In an emotional Instagram post, the singer recalled how she had just seen her cousin before he was shot and killed and ended the Instagram post with the hashtag #endgunviolence. She did not name her cousin, but she tagged his Instagram account in one of the photos; he was later identified as 21-year-old Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne. Citing police, the local news outlet said Alleyne was shot multiple times while walking around his house.
