Ivan Cantu Update

Kim Kardashian advocated to Greg Abbott, Texas Governor to save Ivan Cantu. SKIMS owner shared a petition plea stating, “Ivan has 5 days to live. Please sign the petition to demand that Collin County DA Greg Willis request to withdraw the execution date.” It is to be noted that, before this incident, Kim Kardashian advocated for several others as well.

Kim Kardashian appealed again to Governor Abbott stating, “Texas Gov Greg Abbott is last resort for a 30-day reprieve for Ivan Cantu, set to die on Wednesday, Feb 28. Urge him to use his power to allow time for new evidence in Ivan’s case to be evaluated, lest Texas execute a wrongfully convicted man.”

However, recently, the fashion model and SKIMS owner took to X (formerly Twitter) and shared a black-and-white photo of Ivan A. Cantu. The picture was of a project manager from New York, who was not Ivan Cantu, the murderer in discussion.

The conundrum escalated as both the New York project manager and Texas death row inmate’s first and last names were the same. Thus, when the NY project manager got to know about the incident, he went to Facebook and dropped a clarification.

In his Facebook Post, he wrote, “To all my friends and family, I am not getting executed, some idiot who runs @kimkardashian [socials] used my picture instead of Ivan ‘Abner’ Cantu.”

The NY manager revealed that his family told him about the wrong post by Kim Kardashian. Thus, the SKIM owner deleted her story on Instagram and issued an apology quickly in public by stating, “A wrong image of Mr. Cantu was posted earlier today and I would like to apologize to the person whose image was used in error.”

Back in 2021, a video of a 12-year-old boy screaming in pain started to gain attention and later sparked a scandal. Sylvester Oromoni was studying at Dowen College, a boarding secondary school in Lagos. His parents stated in the media that he sustained severe injuries after a school bully beat him when he refused to join a cult. Once the video started to go viral, the school claimed that he was injured during a school football match and had never been bullied.

The parents decided to file a case. They also claimed that their kid had opened up to them and told them he was being bullied right before he passed away. In April 2024, Mikhail Kadiri, a Lagos coroner, ruled that the kid had experienced “avoidable excruciating pain” due to medical and parental negligence.
