Instagram users mercilessly mocked rainbow-haired rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine after a group of thugs beat him down in the bathroom of a South Florida gym Tuesday night.
On his latest post on February 12th, one user joked about going to the gym to exercise but ending up getting exercised themselves. The comment was made in reference to 6ix9ine’s post.
One individual remarked, “Did you hear about Bro getting ambushed while sporting his revealing booty shorts?” They were alluding to the snug and short shorts worn by 6ix9ine as he roamed around the exercise center, still reeling from the assault.

There are those who believe that the recent attack was a result of 6ix9ine’s past actions of informing on members of the Bloods gang during a court case a few years back.
One user on hubbasandblunts.usa exclaimed, “Isn’t this the infamous rat that was untouchable? They even turned it into soup with your behind.”
User 99mich.privat chimed in, declaring that the rat had finally received its comeuppance.

According to a video posted online by OnlyInDade, a brutal assault took place in the sauna of an LA Fitness. Fortunately, gym staff intervened and locked the victim in a room for their own safety, as TMZ reports. If not for their quick thinking, the outcome could have been even worse.
It seems that 6ix9ine is a regular at the gym, heading straight to the StairMaster and spending around 20 minutes there, all while keeping to himself, according to TMZ.
As per NBC Miami, Lance Lazzaro, the attorney of 6ix9ine, attempted to defend himself against the attackers who attacked him, knocked him down, and assaulted the rapper while he was in a vulnerable position.
The 26-year-old rapper garnered no sympathy from Instagram users.
Freshly released surveillance footage has revealed a pack of unidentified men entering the Palm Beach gym before the assault took place. The video, which was acquired by TMZ, showed one individual conversing on the phone before granting access to another person by opening the door.
After conversing with the front desk attendant, the duo confidently enters the restroom where they reportedly assaulted the frequently embattled rapper, as seen in this footage.
A particular Instagram account found humor in the fact that 6ix9ine was spotted without any companions during his outing.
The investigation into the attack is still ongoing by Palm Beach authorities.
The user stated that despite their conspicuous display of wealth, they are unable to hire a security guard.
Once the brawl was discovered by staff members, the culprits made a quick getaway. The rapper was subsequently taken to a medical facility by officials, where he received care for his facial wounds, which were not deemed life-threatening.
The case is currently under investigation by the police as reported by WPTV News.
Witnessing the aftermath of the attack on 6ix9ine, it was clear that his face had been badly bruised and cut. The physical damage to his appearance was evident and startling. While the incident was certainly a traumatic experience for the rapper, he has since recovered and continues to make music. You can read more about 6ix9ine’s music and career on his official website.

The recent assault is yet another addition to the list of challenges faced by the rapper hailing from Bushwick, as reported by Billboard.
Last week, Tekashi 6ix9ine was causing a commotion at a Miami baseball stadium, resulting in his removal from the premises due to his excessive drinking.
Back in 2019, Tekashi 6ix9ine found himself serving a two-year prison sentence due to his involvement in the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang. While he could have faced even more jail time, he decided to cooperate with authorities and expose his fellow Bloods members.
According to an assistant US attorney, 6ix9ine will always have to be vigilant and watchful, as stated in this source.
The connection between the recent assault and the court case remains unclear.
