Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine broke his silence about ‘cowardly’ gym beatings for the first time on Friday — just a day after it came to light, the suspects have been arrested.
The 26-year-old rapper (Daniel Hernandez) was attacked by a group of men inside the sauna at LA Fitness in South Florida last week.
“First time he addressed the situation,” he wrote on Instagram via a stunning video of his assault. For two years I’ve been walking around without security. Not saying I’m promoting it but now you see I’ve never hid from anything.
‘If you cross my path or come to my house (you girls know who you are),’ he declared, ‘you could tell the world, ‘Danny drives his own cars and is on his own.’
Moreover, he said: “You know how many people in real life have seen me by myself at gas stations, supermarkets, restaurants, etc.”
