The rapper got into an argument with some people in the stands after he stopped by to taunt fans of his opposing team.

6ix9ine nearly got hit with a beer can at World Baseball Classic quarterfinals game between Mexico and Puerto Rico. Moreover, the controversial rapper waved the Mexican flag at fans in the stands at the LoanDepot Park in Miami, Florida on Friday night (March 17). Apparently, a lot of Puerto Rico fans were in those stands, and didn't take kindly to his displays. Baseball reporter Aram Leighton shared a video on Twitter of a beer can flying right by the provocateur's face. Also, officials reportedly moved him to another area to avoid further conflict and more wasted beer cans.

Despite the disruption, the "GUMMO" artist actually got his wish. While Puerto Rico scored four runs in the first inning, Mexico persevered and won the match 5 to 4 in the end. Furthermore, this marks the first time in Mexico's team history that they reach the semifinals of the World Baseball Classic. Next, Mexico will face Japan in what should be another nail-biting and fantastic game of baseball. From there, the team could reach a level of success never before seen by its people.

World Baseball Classic Game: Puerto Rico Versus Mexico

Funnily enough, 6ix9ine (real name Daniel Hernandez) is of both Mexican and Puerto Rican descent. As such, it looks like it was going to be a win for him anyway, so his decision to side with Mexico is curious. Maybe he's just a bigger fan of their team? Regardless, the rapper's known to cause trouble wherever he usually goes, whether instigated or incidental. Also, siding with Mexico could even reflect his beef with Puerto Rican reggaetón artist and rapper Anuel AA. Readers may remember that Tekashi recently got into an altercation with Anuel's brother.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old also caused an Internet shutdown in Cuba recently for his antics. While that's an extreme and by no means justified response to a viral video, 6ix9ine's visit seemingly took the island by storm. Moreover, clips of him allegedly throwing cash to the streets from his hotel room quickly made rounds online. Given the disrespectful display of wealth and exploiting Cuba's issues of poverty, many were outraged at the rapper's visit. Still, stick around on HNHH to see what heated situation 6ix9ine finds himself in next.
