Toya Wright Responds To Backlash After She Films Court Trial For Man Who Killed Her Brothers
Toya Wright finally addressed the critics. This year, Toya was targeted by online trolls for televising the murder trial of the man responsible for the 2016 shooting death of her two brothers.
BET claims that, in September of last year, Antoine Edwards was held responsible for the shooting death of Wright's brothers, including Joshua Johnson, 31, and Ryan "Rudy" Johnson, 24. Mr. Edwards was sentenced to a lifetime behind bars.
The outlet claims that cameras were present in the courtroom as part of Toya's narrative on her very own series, Toya: A Family Affair. During a conversation with Page Six, Toya said she didn't have an issue showing off the trial to the world. It's part of her "reality."
Wright claimed many of her friends were shocked that she chose to document the trial, but her explanation is that its part of her life and her reality. If she's going to have a reality TV series about her life, then it's best to show what's really going on.
As it was previously reported, Wright's two brothers were killed in New Orleans, Louisiana, back in August 2016. Page Six reported at the time that both men were discovered in a car on a Saturday night in the 7th Ward of New Orleans.
The Times-Picayune reported that they had been shot and killed. At the time of their report, there was no explanation for their killing, but Wright, 32, took to her Instagram to ask God for help and included several anti-violence hash-tags.
Fans of the reality star know she has a lucrative career on TV. For instance, she starred in Tiny and Toya, Toya: A Family Affair, and then Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars, on WeTV. Toya was married to Lil' Wayne for two years from 2004 until 2006. They have a daughter named Reginae "Nae" Carter.
Wright and the wife of TI, Tiny Harris, are very good friends. On Instagram, Tiny shared her condolences for her close friend, stating that she knew her brother, Rudy, well, and he was a "really cool dude." TI expressed his condolences for Toya as well.
