These hooligans in Detroit must’ve lost they damn minds!!! Eddie Franklin, the son of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, suffered a brutal beatdown Monday night at a gas station. SMH. What the hell is wrong with people???

Aretha Franklin’s son was severely beaten at a gas station in Detroit, the singing legend’s spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Eddie Franklin was attacked Monday night and was undergoing surgery at a hospital, Gwendolyn Quinn said in a statement. She said three people may have been involved in the attack, but did not address a possible motive.

Quinn told The Associated Press she didn’t have any additional information beyond the written statement.

Detroit police spokeswoman Eren Stephens said a female acquaintance was with Franklin just before the beating took place. The woman walked into the gas station, and when she returned, the assault had taken place, Stephens said.

Police said the woman then drove Franklin to the hospital, dropped him off and headed to a police station to file a report.

Stephens said investigators want to talk to Franklin about the circumstances of the attack once he’s able to speak to them.

SMH at “once he’s able to speak to them”. They have beaten this man until he required SURGERY!!! Are we human beings or animals???

We’re praying for a full and swift recovery for Eddie Franklin.

This is some damn mess.
