Tekashi 6ix9ine’s online antics on Friday (May 8) set numerous Instagram and YouTube viewership records, but it may have come at a cost.
According to TMZ, the Brooklyn rapper was moved from his current house arrest location to a different address because of a leak online.
6ix9ine’s attorney Lance Lazzaro told TMZ the move was done for security reasons. A neighbor at the residence snapped a photo of 6ix9ine outside on the balcony and posted it on social media, revealing the address as well.
In the past 48 hours, 6ix9ine returned to his usual trolling ways on social media. In his first Instagram Live session since being released from federal prison — which drew over 1.9 million viewers — he walked out to the Cops “Bad Boys” theme song, taunting his haters.
He ultimately apologized for his “snitching” ways, but refused to feel bad about it.
“Before I got locked up, it was all, ‘Fuck that rainbow-haired kid … y’all didn’t really have a reason to not like me,” he said during the broadcast. “He’s mad, loud’ — that was your reason. Of course, the go-to is now I snitched. I can’t blame you. I’m sorry to my fans because they don’t deserve that. My family, my mother … don’t deserve it. I’m sorry, but you’re not going to break me down like I did something wrong.”
