Tekashi 6ix9ine Addresses His ‘Snitch’ Reputation On Instagram

His attorney previously claimed that the federal government is monitoring his social media use (by the way).

In an odd-defying twist of fate, Brooklyn rap artist Tekashi 6ix9ine was released from prison ahead of his planned August 2020 release date.

  • The polarizing 23-year-old was released from prison last week after a judge granted him the option to finish the remainder of his sentence under house arrest in consideration of his pre-existing asthma condition in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak. 

    Upon his release, Tekashi wasted no time announcing his return to social media in his trademark fashion. Poking at his  “snitching” reputation that now precedes him since he turned federal informant amid his federal racketeering case, Tekashi slid into the The Shade Room comments under a post about the Los Angeles mayor encouraging citizens to report anyone  violating the city’s shelter-in-place order. “Coming to the rescue,” he joked. 

     

  • And now, the “Fefe” rapper has changed his Instagram profile picture to a cartoon drawing of himself sitting on top of a rat trap nibbling on a block of cheese. Additionally, he updated his biography on the social platform with another joke, writing “Why everybody callin’ me a snitch? I’m missin’ something...?”

     

  • This comes after Tekashi’s legal team insisted to TMZ that the Dummy Boy rap artist would be leaving his old trollster ways behind him in the past and using discretion and common sense. Additionally, they told the celebrity outlet that a probation officer and the federal government would is monitoring his social media activity.
