NEW YORK (AP).- The family of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot by a white officer in Ferguson, is suing the rap star Kanye West over his comments on Twitter and Instagram that the killing was justified by police.

The Brown family and the Rev. Al Sharpton have each filed lawsuits against West accusing him of making a “callous and reckless” response to a protest against police brutality in Ferguson and a viral hashtag that called for the killing of a young black man by police.

West is a musician and rapper whose latest album, “The Life of Pablo,” was released Friday. West has rapped about killing police, the recent shooting of unarmed black men by police and on President Donald Trump’s controversial plan for a proposed wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

West said Friday in a tweet that he plans to issue a statement later in the day and will not be commenting
