Grenfell Township & # 39; s disgusted and shocked & # 39 ;, by burning the tower image

A viral video showing an image of the burning down of the Grenfell Tower has brought "great alarm and stress" to people in the community

The clip circulating on WhatsApp features several men carrying the tower's cardboard model, whose death killed 72 people in June last year, and burned it on a campfire.

As the sculpture begins to burn, laughter and vile comments are heard.

The police confirmed that they were investigating the video and asked anyone who had information about the people shown to contact them.

Justice for Grenfell, a community organization founded in the days following the fire, said, "The content of this video has raised grave concern and concern. We are disgusted and shocked by the inhumanity and feelings of those involved in this video.

"This was an unnecessary disgusting hate act against those who experienced the worst since June 14, 2017, through no fault of their own.

"This is clearly a hate crime, and as a society, we should never tolerate such hate crime.

"In recent years, there have been numerous calls to social media platforms and their responsibility to block and immediately remove hateful content. This is an example of the lack of moral responsibility.

"It's important to remember what the survivors, the survivors, and the community went through that night and the next 16 months.

"We expect the police to scrutinize this thoroughly and the perpetrators face the full force of the law.

In the video, one hears a man calling "help me" as he imitates the copycats last year.

Another shot says, "Did it start on the 10th floor? We should have turned it upside down. "
