Another investigative installment into the (now) two year-long horrifying domestic abuse saga of Florida rap star XXXTENTACION entered the digital space on Tuesday (May 5) with The New York Times, fittingly titled The Real Story of South Florida Rapper XXXTentacion.
The lengthy feature written by journalist Tarpley Hitt explored the former and current life and times of the 20-year-old rap star, who is famously known for his radical sound, but infamously controversial for the alleged heinous violence against his former girlfriend, Geneva Ayala. The details of the reported abuse are familiarly grotesque and cringe-worthy, as Hitt explores testimonies from Ayala, XXX, witnesses, and other sources close to the “Look At Me!” artist. As if already-surfaced incidents from the alleged domestic violence, such as a 142-page claim from Ayala with details alleging that he sexually penetrated her with a barbecue pitchfork, weren’t revolting enough, the feature also includes other violent propensities that XXX himself recollected. Not to mention, his own repugnant statements following the publicized news of the allegations.
“I was gonna kill him," he said of his former juvenille inmate who was gay and that he “repeatedly calls a ‘f**got’,” Hitt wrote. "Because of what he did, because I was naked. He was staring at me. I started strangling him."
In his gory description, XXX claimed that he eventually beat the inmate to a pulp.
"The guard hears him, and I've got his blood all over my hands, all of my chest, literally,” he reportedly revealed. “I was going crazy. I smear his blood on my face, on my hands. I got it, like, in my nails. I got it all over me. I was going f**king crazy."
Fans and detractors alike have read the explicative, comprehensive feature piece of XXX’s troubling rise to manhood and fame, notably at the alleged bloodshed of people like Ayala.
And they’re not taking the disturbing disclosures of the NY Times narrative lightly whatsoever.

XXXTentacion’s friends and fans ruined a woman’s life after he physically and mentally tortured her. But his music is great so who fucking cares right??? https://t.co/l6X7JQfB8H pic.twitter.com/Vhip1U0w8F— BlockBoy JB (@JBlock49) June 5, 2018
STOP SUPPORTING ABUSIVE PIECES OF TRASH. XXXTENTACION IS AN ABUSIVE RAPIST. If you support him or listen to him, go ahead and unfollow me. If you can read these and not wince or not have any empathy, you’re inhumane and sick. Stop making people like this famous. pic.twitter.com/6mN8lmZdQ2— kt💐 (@ktiedarling) June 6, 2018
The great thing about XXXTentacion being a shit human being is that his music is crap anyway so we don't have to separate the art from the artist, they can both go in the trash.— Dirk Action (@dirk_action) June 6, 2018
“Perhaps most disturbing, after he allegedly beat her in the apartment near FIU, Ayala found herself in need of surgery to repair nerve damage and a fracture near her eye.”— Frederick Joseph (@FredTJoseph) June 5, 2018
A difficult read for many, but I suggest you do. XXXTentacion is an animal.https://t.co/WEeL2CAJM7
Problematics(his fans) defend him by separating his "art/music" and him. They are able to enjoy it despite the things HE continuously says he does or has done. I am tired. pic.twitter.com/C1gL3FMq3p— Adultish Gambino (@TALLCHIHUAHUA) June 6, 2018

Oh and for all of you defending xxxtentacion because his music’s “heat”, if you like heat you should be a real fan of hell then. pic.twitter.com/GBy3heM6Ik— Judy of the booty (@MiliaMiliarox) June 6, 2018
I thought Xxxtentacion getting blindsided on stage would have knocked some sense into him but clearly it didn’t. pic.twitter.com/qpXTwjO6fy— Swae Les (@LesIzMore) June 6, 2018
