Brooke Blurton said she’s “angry and sad” over public figures’ silence on the brutal murder of 15-year-old Indigenous teenager Cassius Turvey.

**TRIGGER WARNING: The following content details assault and death and may be distressing for some readers.**

The schoolboy was beaten with a metal pole that caused injuries so horrific he suffered two strokes and brain bleeds. He died in the hospital on October 23 while in an induced coma.

While the Western Australian Police Commissioner called the incident a case of “wrong place, wrong time”, Brooke has slammed the comments as “absolute bullsh*t” and condemned “mainstream” platforms for not speaking up about Cassius’ death.

“What concerns me is the fact that no other influencer or people who have massive platforms are f*cking talking about it,” the 27-year-old stressed on her Instagram Story.

“It makes me feel angry and sad and disappointed that these people… like it’s not headlining for them, it doesn’t matter to them.”

Brooke went on to say that it feels like people don’t care because an attack on an Indigenous person isn’t “their experience”.

“But, like, this is a human experience… If this was a 15-year-old white kid, would that be making news for you?”

The former Bachelorette then revealed she and her younger brother once had a “similar experience” in which they were “abused” while walking home.

“We actually had to run because we were so fearful of what was going to happen and that just makes me feel so sick,” she recalled.

“Open your mouth, use your voices and show the f*ck up.”

Brooke’s good friend and Indigenous activist, Gabrielle Ebsworth, also condemned influencers for performative activism in recent days.

Brooke Blurton Previously Broke Down Over “Senseless Acts of Violence and Racism” Against Indigenous People

A day prior, Brooke took social media to ask when the “senseless” displays of “violence and racism” will end.

“I’m just gonna be real with you guys because I’m over it,” the teary reality star said.

Noting she was preparing for her Not So PG podcast, Brooke explained she and her co-host Matty Mills “really want to talk about things that really affect us and what we see every day”.

“Recently, a poor 15-year-old called Cassius Turvey passed away because of the injuries he sustained walking home from school from a white man who just bashed [and] hit him with a metal pole because of mistaken identity or whatever the reason.

“F*ck knows why. He’s a 15-year-old kid, for f*ck sake.”

Brooke Blurton Says She’s ‘Tired” of Seeing Young Indigenous People Dying

The upcoming The Challenge Australia contestant added that she and Matty are “so tired” of these events occurring.

“We’re just so tired of seeing these senseless acts of violence and racism, that stereotype, happen every day to the result of our young people dying,” Brooke expressed.

“When does it stop?”

In subsequent Stories, the reality star shared clips of others highlighting the brutal murder of Indigenous children. She also shared a link to a GoFundMe page started in honour of Cassius.

At the time of writing, over $352,000 has been raised for the teenager’s family.

Police allege that one of the assailants is 21-year-old Jack Brearly, who has since been charged with Cassius’ murder.
