XXXTentacion apparently pissed off the wrong people. After releasing the visuals for “Look At Me,” which showed the rapper hanging a white child, along with other graphic imagery, the KKK reportedly reached out to send a vicious warning.

X exposed the Klan in an Instagram post with a video of a voicemail that he received from a member of the terrorist group. It’s unclear how the man obtained XXX’s number, but his message was crystal clear. "Yeah. motherf**ker. listen, you got me involved now and I'm gonna hunt that a** down,” the man said in a noticeably aggressive tone. He also addressed particular imagery used in X’s video. "You want to kill white people? You want to kill Black people? You want to play with the K, motherf**ker,” he asked. “We're gonna tear your mothaf**kin' a** down, b***h. We're coming for ya.”

Beneath the Insta-video, X commented on the voicemail, stating that he made his “Look At Me” video with the purpose of causing a reaction from the KKK and others who hold similar beliefs. “The video was made to reach these people to show ‘you’ they're response, and it did exactly what it was supposed to,” he wrote in the caption. “So here my fellow friends and human beings, is a clear threat of murder over an artistic vision, here is the ‘role model’ supremacists some praise so much, here is the the hate that never stays in the public eye."

While a number of people online had mixed emotions about the effectiveness of X’s video, as well as the rapper's own dark history, many would probably agree that it shouldn’t warrant death threats from one of the largest terrorist groups in the country. Listen to the voicemail below.
