Young Thug‘s sister has come to Gunna‘s defense and is asking for the public to ease up when referring to him as a snitch.
On Wednesday (December 14), Gunna reached a plea deal to secure his release from jail and some, like Freddie Gibbs, Wack100 and Boosie Badazz, believe the YSL rapper cooperated with authorities to get a favorable agreement.
“Can y’all please stop saying then people write it and this and that? It’s not making anybody better or nothing good,” Thug’s sister Dolly White said. “Nothing that’s going on is helping my brother. So can y’all please stop that. If y’all love Gunna, then y’all give him support. Why the fuck y’all over there y’all tripping. It be the internet for me.”
Thug’s sister went on to explain that she hasn’t posted Gunna on social media because they’ve legally been asked to not have any communications between the two parties.
“No, I haven’t posted him because I was just told that nobody really supposed to have communications with each other right now,” she said. “I don’t want to mess up his shit so why would I go and post him.”

Gunna pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge when he was back in court for a virtual hearing on Wednesday (December 14) which secured his release hours later.
The “Pushin P” rapper and his legal team entered an Alford plea where he plead guilty to one charge because it was in his best interest to do so as far as his freedom goes.
Gunna was sentenced to five years with one year served in prison. The four-year sentence left will reportedly be “suspended” and Gunna will serve the rest in the form of 500 hours of community service.
“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 in a statement.
“My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and ‘glorified’ urban life in the Black community.”
Gunna’s attorney, Steve Sadow, also released a statement explaining that his client didn’t cooperate with authorities. “Gunna did not snitch to get out of jail. He has said nothing and is not cooperating,” he wrote.
