Fans of the slain rapper were shocked that his body was displayed at a nightclub

The post of a slain Maryland rapper is going viral because of the way the man’s body was apparently displayed.

Markelle Morrow, who rapped as “Goonew,” died last month after being found shot dead in a District Heights parking lot. He was taken to an area hospital where he later died, according to WUSA TV.

Police are still looking for suspects and a motive, but Morrow’s family told NBC Washington they believe he was shot during a robbery.

On Sunday, the rapper’s friends and family gathered at Bliss, a Washington, D.C. nightclub, to honor his memory at $40 a pop, according to Hot97.com.

Video from the event shows Morrow’s presumably embalmed body, propped up on stage and wearing designer clothes and a crown.

The overall effect was like someone doing a reboot of “Weekend At Bernie’s,” a 1989 cult comedy about two guys who pretend a dead mobster is alive for a weekend.

Other people also posted photos on social media.

Many people were shocked by the video.

The reaction was strong enough that the nightclub posted an apology on social media on Monday, saying it had been contacted by a local funeral home for a celebration of the rapper’s life, but had no idea ” what would happen”.
