Victim of Remy Ma (AND REMY MA!) Speaks OutMay 16th, 2008
Makeda Barnes-Joseph, the victim in the Remy Ma shooting, speaks out in a radio interview with Miss Jones on NYC Hot 97’s morning show. In a passionate interview, the victim was crying and giving her side of the story. “It was me and Remy in that car. I know who shot me,” she said. Though Makeda says that she was advised not to do interviews, she went on to detail the incident. “Because I didn’t give up my bag, she shot me. I’m, like, ‘Remy you shot me!’ ”
“I sat in the hospital for three weeks and 1 day, Miss Jones. The scars on my stomach are crazy. I don’t even know if I can have kids. You can’t say 8 years is excessive. She got a kid. I may not be able to have kids,” Makeda passionately cries. On Monday (May 12), Remy was sentenced to 8 years, after she was convicted for assault for the shooting.
The victim continued to speak out. “Everyone who was there know what happened, Miss Jones…I’m not out for no money. I wouldn’t steal from Remy, that was my girl. If you see her anywhere, I was with her. We was cool. I never asked Remy for anything. I would never steal from nobody.”
Remy called the station a few minutes later to talk to Miss Jones and assert her innocence. “I don’t care if 12 million said guilty. I was there. She was there. I’m not agreeing to this.
Miss Jones asked Remy how she was holding up. Remy replied, “I’m okay. Everybody is wondering why i’m not on the floor crying my eyes out.”
