Jaylin's mother believes her son's death was swept under the carpet, and the family will only rest once DaBaby, real name Jonathan Kirk is behind bars for murdering her son, per HipHopDX. She said:

“I feel like they just swept it up under the rug. Kirk knows what he did. I’m not doing this for no fame or anything because, at the end of the day, Jaylin Craig is gone."

Social media users shared their thoughts after the video. Many suggested that investigators should look into the case again to determine whether or not Baby acted in self-defence.

@_chriskrasniqi commented:

"If you start a confrontation that turns into a physical altercation between you & a single another person while other people try to stop it, it is not self-defence."

@MasterNarf99 wrote:

"This clearly isn't self-defence. Dababy hot temper/ short man syndrome caused him to attack one of the guys, so his friend pulled the gun out in the midst of it. Clearly, they weren't trying to rob him in the middle of Walmart."
