Detroit based rapper known as Molly Brazy posted a video on her Facebook page where she put a gun to a toddler’s head. The disturbing video was shared by friends and eventually brought to the attention of police.
Now is a question whether or not she will be arrested. Brazy claims the gun was a toy, and that she was just playing with the little girl in the video. However, many of Brazy’s photos show her with different guns, and she brags about being in a gang when she was a young girl. All four of her brothers are in prison for gang-related activity.

Police in Detroit have launched an investigation after a disturbing video emerged on social media that appears to show a local up-and-coming female rapper pointing a handgun at a toddler’s head.
The nearly minute-long video depicting 18-year-old Molly Brazy and an unnamed little girl was shared on Facebook by another Detroit rapper, G’Mac Cash, on Friday.
The footage has quickly gone viral, racking up just under 177,000 views as of Wednesday morning.
It begins with Brazy talking to the toddler about candy. The little girl is seen in the video playing with what looks like a large handgun, which she then hurls at the rapper.
‘Why would you do that?’ Brazy sternly asks the girl before grabbing the gun and pointing it at the toddler’s forehead.
‘You better stop playing,’ Brazy is heard telling the child.
At that moment, it appears that someone off camera begins streaming the video to Facebook Live, prompting Molly Brazy to tell that person, prophetically, ‘you better not, you’re gonna get me in trouble.’
The Detroit Police Department became aware of the video this week and then sent it to its cyber experts to take a closer look at it.
‘It’s very concerning to see anybody point a weapon at a small child,’ Sgt. Michael Woody, of Detroit police, told Fox 2 Detroit.
According to police, their main concern is whether or not the firearm seen in the video is real.
Brazy’s manager on Tuesday insisted to the station Fox 2 Detroit that the handgun is a plastic toy, and that the 18-year-old rapper was just playing with the little girl in the video.
The manager added that the video was shot about a month ago, and that Brazy is ‘remorseful’ over the incident.
The Daily Mail on Wednesday reached out to Molly Brazy for comment and was awaiting a reply.
