Gunna Makes 1st Public Appearance At Heat-Celtics Game 6

Gunna made his first public appearance since taking a plea deal in the massive YSL RICO case on Saturday night. He was in attendance during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. He sat courtside for the event with Nechie. Diddy and Yung Miami were also both at the game together.

Watching on as the Celtics won 104-103, Gunna rocked dark shades with a sleeveless top and pink and black pants. When NoJumper posted a picture of Gunna at the game, fans were quick to bring up his accusations of snitching. "Didn’t he snitch or something?" one commented. Another wrote: "He out there too. Not hidin or nun." Many more shared images of rats.

When Gunna first accepted his plea deal, he received tons of backlash online. Rumors that he snitched on Young Thug and his YSL associates in doing so quickly spread. While Gunna denied the accusations in a statement at the time, it may not have been enough for many fans. “While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way,” Gunna told WSB-TV. “My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and ‘glorified’ urban life in the Black community.”

As for the game, the Celtics took home the victory with a last-minute put-back by Derrick White. They will have a chance to make history by overcoming a 0-3 deficit in Game 7 on Monday night. Check out a picture of Gunna during Game 6 at the link below.
