Her name isn’t Lil Tay, it was Claire Hope.
She was a little girl exploited and potentially abused by her family for fame, wealth, and influence.
It’s a shame that the vapid, influencer persona will be her legacy when her life barely began.
Genuinely, rest in peace Claire. pic.twitter.com/b485OXdHDT
