Tekashi 6ix9ine speaks out after the gym attack | Entertainment

Tekashi 6ix9ine is grateful to be alive after being violently assaulted at a Florida gym.

The 26-year-old rapper broke his silence on the incident last month and uploaded a video of the assault to Instagram in his “first time addressing the situation”.

Tekashi – who was early released from federal prison in 2020 after admitting involvement in gang activity and becoming a witness for the prosecution – captioned the post: “First time addressing the situation. For 2 years, I walked around without security. I’m not saying I promote this BUT now you see I really never hid from anything.

“Anyway, what happened here was nothing but cowardice. I’m not sorry it happened. On the street, there are no rules, so I can’t say they were wrong. Obviously it wasn’t fair, but then again, the street has no rules. Just imagine having nothing to do with a situation and feeling have to make it his business. (Very weird) I’m glad I’m still here. And I want to say I love my fans. Thank you (sic).”

Three men were arrested earlier this week on suspicion of assaulting the rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, at the LA Fitness sauna.

The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office spokesperson confirmed to TMZ that Rafael Medina, Jr., Octavious Medina and Anthony Maldonado were arrested on Thursday (30.03.23).

The trio were convicted of assaulting and robbing the musician and jailed in the county jail.

It’s unclear if the suspects have any connection to the gang members the heavily tattooed Tekashi has previously testified against.

The ‘Trollz’ hitman was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and video footage circulating online showed the rapper trying to shield his face as a man stomped on his side and another was kicking him.

The video was first shared on social media and partially captioned: “F*** a rat”.
