Fans of Bobbi Kristina were left fuming after a video claiming to show preparations for the 22-year-old's funeral emerged online, six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.
The 15-second video, entitled Bobbi Kristina Brown Funeral Service 7/30/2015, was uploaded by a user named BLACKNEWS and shows an open casket with someone standing beside it.
While the viral clip, which is likely to be a fake, has provoked a strong response from members of the online community, who have insisted that it is of poor taste.
Bobbi Kristina was found in a bath at her home in Roswell, Georgia, on 31 January 2015, shortly before the third anniversary of her mother's death. It was reported on 25 June that she had been moved to hospice care, having spent two months at Georgia's Emory University Hospital and a further 10 weeks at the city's DeKalb Medical facility.
"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," read a family statement in June. "As of today, she has been moved into hospice care.
While the aspiring actress remains in hospice care, speculation continues to grow about her condition. Family members were recently forced to deny reports that it was bad news after a white tent was erected outside and a hearse was spotted at the back door of the Georgia facility.
The funeral video surfaces days after family friend and Hollywood filmmaker Tyler Perry slammed the rumours about Bobbi Kristina's health and urged fans and the media to give the Brown family some privacy.
"For some reason, it has become human nature in our society to look for, seek out, and celebrate darkness, glory in tragedy, and enjoy reading and reporting it," he wrote in an emotional Facebook post.
"It makes me sad to know that everybody wants to be the first to report something awful. So much so, that they find it OK to speak death onto those who are still alive. May I ask you all to please show some decency and respect? Not only to Krissi's family, but also to the other families that are there in this place."
