Tekashi 6ix9ine claims he is not allowed to speak out against the police in the brutal murder of George Floyd and insinuates it’s because he is still under house arrest.
In a new video, Tekashi 69 addresses the death and protests going on all over the country in reaction to the murder of George Floyd — and the rainbow rapper appears to be saying he can’t say negative things about the cops because of his legal situation.
In the clip, Tekashi starts by addresses why with his huge platform he has been silent up until this point.
“I want to start out this video by saying that I see what i going on globally, and I see the outrage, I see the chaos. I know everyone knows my situation I’m still not a free man, I’m home under supervised release,” he begins.
But, the rainbow rapper then says he isn’t allowed to say anything more and points the camera to his ankle monitor. In insinuation, of course, is either he can’t talk negatively about the police — or anything he says could be inciting violence. (which could violate his parole.)
“I can’t speak on certain topics, but I want to do and what I am going to do is send out my deepest condolences to the Floyd family,” he said.
He continued, “Unfortunately when stuff like this happens and in the situation I’m in right now, not being able to speak on certain topics the best thing I can say is let’s stick together. The way we been doing. Again, my deepest condolences.”
Tekashi 6ix9ine captioned the video, “RIP George Floyd ? WE MATTER! #endracism.”
As you know, Tekashi has gotten heat in the past for saying the N-word in his music — considering he is not an African-American.
One fan pointed it out, saying, “How are you gonna say black lives matter when you say the N-word all the time and you’re not black that makes no sense.”
Another person pointed out that Tekashi seems to be slowing down on social media after he was warned about violating probation. “I hope you guys can tell his whole attitude is changed so much since he heard he could get sent back if he keeps messing up,” someone wrote.
The ‘FeFe’ rapper has made headlines in the past few days after his ‘Gooba’ music video was temporarily taken down off YouTube due to a copyright complaint.
But, fans say they appreciate him addressing George Floyd’s death, instead of ranting about the music video situation. “I’m glad that you are talking about this instead of your music video “Gooba” taken down from YouTube. This says a lot about you. ♥️??” a fan said.
