The child was continuously abused due to the non-intervention of the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper took to Twitter to share, "Motherf*****s on that Gabriel Fernandez Doc telling their lil stories and what they remember but NOBODY HELPED HIM! They failed him sooo bad! Poor baby! I wish I could hug him and spoil him with love."

In the documentary, Gabriel's school teacher, Jennifer Garcia, revealed that the child had asked her some very concerning questions that led her to call the social services. The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services have been slammed for their failure to save Gabriel and remove him from the harmful environment he was in.
