DJ Akademiks wasn’t gone for long. Just one day after claiming he could be going to jail for five to 10 years, the Everday Struggle host returned to social media.

“First Day Out…. mumble rap tape otw,” he tweeted on Thursday (January 4).

The tweet put an end to a string of wild speculation and misinformation, which included Akademiks allegedly facing a gun charge. No verified details about any charges have emerged, leading many to speculate that it was fabricated from the beginning.

Naturally, Twitter was amused by the whole situation and mocked Akademiks’ speedy return. Check out some of the reactions below.

Everyday Struggle co-host DJ Akademiks got Twitter talking once again after he posted a video claiming he might be facing five to 10 years in jail. A video posted early Wednesday (January 3), finds Ak confessing he was headed to court.

“If I’m gone for the next couple weeks, listen man, it was real,” he said in the video. “I’ve never been to jail before. I’m not going to lie to you. If they take me into custody — by the way don’t videotape that if they do — because I’m crying.”

Footage of Ak walking into a courthouse also hit the web with a woman narrating every step of the way (presumably his girlfriend Angelica).

“Yo all I want to say is Free Ak,” the woman says. “This is the last couple hours that he might be out here, so hashtag #FreeAk.”

She adds, “I’m not here to lie to you, but we are about 30 minutes late to his court date. Free Akademiks. Let’s see how this rolls out.”

I’ll hold you down ? ❤️#freeakademiks
