Many tried to drag Tira, claiming he doesn't have problems but some came to his defence to clarify what he meant by his tweet.
"Your comments guys!!! I'm certain he means "men". This tweet simply says we need to care more about men and their emotions."
"He's not talking about being rich or poor, employed or in employed, he's talking about men in general and the fact that we expected to be strong and take it like a man while we bottle pain inside and it becomes toxic till you can't handle it, does someone ask you if you ok? No."
"Funny how the people that are here bashing Dj Tira are the very same people acting all sad and shit that Ricky Rick allegedly committed suicide due to cyberbullying. We are a f****d nation."
"Don't make this about a select few people. All of us are going through something. Mental health is not designated to celebrities only."
DJ Tira also headed to Instagram to share a tribute for Riky Rick. The musician posted a video of the rapper being interviewed, suggesting that the words spoken were also a cry for help. Riky Rick ended the interview with:
"If you never hear from me again..."
