Alicia Keys called out by upset fans for video playing XXXTentacion song on piano https://t.co/j6LYeTOU0U— XXL Magazine (@XXL) January 5, 2019
She posted video of herself and her son playing an XXX song on piano on social media.
The video showed her and her son Egypt tickling the ivories with a rendition of XXX's song “What Are You So Afraid Of.”
She wrote “Such a vibe!! Big love to the talented @xxxtentacion !! Gone too soon.”
A number of Keys' fans were not feeling the gesture considering allegations of assaulting a woman that have been levied against the rapper.
The backlash was such that Keys deleted the post after a few hours.
