Social mmedia users have come to comedian and Wild ‘N Out star DC Young Fly’s defense after trolls criticised his speech at his longtime partner, Jacky Oh’s funeral.

The former Wild ‘N Out cast member, whose real name is Jacklyn Smith, passed away on 31 May of an unknown cause, although many speculate it was due to a ‘”mommy makeover” she reportedly said she was going to have. She was laid to rest on Saturday, 10 June, in Los Angeles.
