6ix9ine has joined in on the recent trend of eating bugs. The TattleTales rapper shared a video of himself stuffing down a handful of insects on Instagram, earlier this week. In the clip, he's surrounded by a group of friends. The post comes after the release of his new single, "Y Ahora.”
The video was eventually reposted by No Jumper, where fans had plenty of responses to the move. One shared a conspiracy theory on the trend: "More celebrities are doing this so people can follow eventually this is what they will try to incorporate and feed us when the next food pandemic hits …. It’s already a good shortage don’t be fooled." Another joked, "Chasing grasshoppers with tequila is crazyyyy ole bro lost a few brain cells in that bathroom beat down."
6ix9ine On Stage In Miami
That user was referencing the recent attack on 6ix9ine at a Florida gym. The rapper had been at a sauna in an LA Fitness when a group of men attacked and robbed him. He spoke about the incident with NBC Miami afterward. “For me, it was tough to watch because it was so unexpected. It’s cowardly," he said. "When I look at it, I just see hate, right? Imagine being someone who doesn’t know someone from a hole in the wall. I’ll give you an example: today is the first day that I meet you, I don’t know you from anywhere, I could have heard something about you that I may have an opinion on, but I don’t know you to hate you.”
For the attack, three men were eventually arrested and charged with the assault. However, the charges against one suspect, Anthony Maldonado, were dropped, earlier this week. “I literally am so confused by the whole situation,” Maldonado said during an interview with 1090 Jake on Instagram Live. “I walk out the house and literally they have six detectives outside, everybody with assault rifles, German Shepherds and stuff, walking me out like a killer in front of all my neighbors. They take me to the police station, and they don’t even do a proper investigation. The didn’t ask me who I was with, where I was at that night, none of that. They just said, ‘You look like the guy and that’s you.'"
