Tekashi 6ix9ine is known for his controversial online actions and on Friday (May 8) he set numerous Instagram viewership records, but it may have come at a cost.
According to TMZ, the Brooklyn rapper was moved from his current house arrest location to a different address because of a leak online. A neighbor took a picture of 6ix9ine on the balcony of the house he is serving his house arrest at. Not only did they post the picture online, but they also posted the house’s address.
Two hours later, 6ix9ine’s attorney Lance Lazzaro told TMZ that the move was done for security reasons. The feds were made aware of the move and police cars dispersed fans trying to get a look at the star.
6ix9ine – real name is Daniel Hernandez – notoriously testified against fellow members of the Trey Nine Gang in February 2019 in exchange for a reduced sentence on racketeering charges.
During an Instagram Live session, Tekashi ultimately apologized for his “snitching” ways, but refused to feel bad about it.
Before I got locked up, it was all, ‘Fuck that rainbow-haired kid … y’all didn’t really have a reason to not like me. ‘He’s mad, loud’ — that was your reason. Of course, the go-to is now I snitched. I can’t blame you. I’m sorry to my fans because they don’t deserve that. My family, my mother … don’t deserve it. I’m sorry, but you’re not going to break me down like I did something wrong.Tekashi 6ix9ine
