Rickey Smiley revealed on his radio show Monday morning that his daughter was shot three times while waiting for food at Whataburger in Houston.
“My youngest daughter was shot last night. Aaryn, she in the hospital right now. That’s why I can’t have focus —I’m just so angry right now,” he said.
The comedian plans to take the first flight out to Houston as soon as airlines clear up.
Smiley continued sharing his frustrations on the show, adding that while he still supports and does not discredit Black Lives Matter, “there are some criminals in our community that we need to do something about.”
“I get the luxury of going to the hospital, but just think about all the parents that got to go pick out a casket this morning,” he said.
