XXXTentacion is being slammed all across the internet as a video allegedly showing him hitting a female has surfaced. The rapper, who has a history speckled with police reports and jail time, definitely doesn’t need this type of publicity, yet and still…
The video surfaced late Sunday night (March 25), reportedly showing XXXTentacion and a female hanging out. As the unidentified women is laying across a bed, Snapchatting a video of a man assumed to be the Florida rapper dancing behind her, X punches her in the back of the head.
The clip moves super fast, so viewers aren’t privy to any of the aftermath. Since no one — neither the female nor X himself — has come forward to comment on the video, speculators aren’t left with much. Fans and naysayers alike know one thing though: This is not a good look.
This bad publicity comes on the heels of the rapper getting some majorly good news. Last week (March 21), the “Jocelyn Flores” rapper’s lawyer shared that a judge approved X’s request to be taken off of house arrest. After arguing that he needed to make a living, X was awarded his freedom so that he could tour, promoting his new album ?.
The rapper’s legal troubles — 15 felony charges, which include domestic battery, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and witness tampering — are still breathing heavily down his neck though. After the charges stemming from X allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend were dropped, prosecutors got the rapper for violating the terms of his bond on the arrest.
As HipHopMyWay previously reported, at the time, DJ Akademiks pushed the notion that X was being targeted for the accidental firestorm he created when he posted info about his court date. Angry fans got in touch with a judge and frightened them so much that they recused themselves from the case. Ak explained the theory on his Instagram as follows:
“Apparently it wasn’t the 7 new felonies that got #xxxtentacion taken into custody, it was him posting his court info on instagram then his fans supposedly threatened a judge till the judge had to take them selves off the case. Also after thousands of people showed up to the court house. The new judge felt #xxxtentacion was making a mockery of the court and immediately ordered for him to be taken into custody.”
Full of Support
In spite of all the chaos — and the nature of the charges against him — several of X’s fellow rappers have spoken out in support of the “Look At Me!” star. Fellow XXL Freshman Ugly God said that he was going to show up to support the rapper in court and encouraged fans to do the same.
“I found out about X and his court date tomorrow because I watch Akademiks’ youtube channel with his ole biscuit head a**,” he wrote on Instagram. “I will be attending tomorrow in support of X, and I advise to anyone in the area if you’re able to you should too. Despite how X is portrayed, he actually has a big heart. When I hear X speak on how he feels and when he gives positive messages to his fans, its actually genuine. Me and him had our disagreements in the past, but I’m rocking with X 100% this time.”
