Tekashi 6ix9ine Pleads Guilty to 9 Counts

So if there was ever a case to make for cultural appropriation, I guess it would be fair to say that Daniel Hernandez, better known as Tekashi 6ix9ine might actually fit the bill of cultural appropriation.  But unfortunately for him, his cultural appropriation appears to have gone severly wrong.

So we all know who Tekashi 6ix9ine is by now and we all know that he was arrested a few months ago, but an update just came out in regards to his case and it’s probably fair to say that the next time we see Tekashi 6ix9ine galavanting across America trolling people, he’ll probably be an old man with white hair instead of the colorful hair he now sports.

According to TMZ, Tekashi is facing a minimum of 47 years in prison.  But they are also saying he might be able to get some time shaved off due to his cooperation and if that happens, I still predict he’ll do at least 30 years.  So that means the next time the current 22 year old Tekashi 6ix9ine sees freedom he’ll either be about 52 years old if he gets 30 years or he’ll be coincidentally…the age of 69 years old.  Either way, if he makes it to see freedom, he’s not coming out until he’s an old man.

I think the lesson that can be learned from this here is that Tekashi 6ix9ine is an extreme case of when chasing clout and trying to pretend to be somebody that you’re not on social media goes wrong.  Sadly in this day and age, a lot of people are guilty of this, just not to this extreme, but this is what social media has allowed for society to devolve to. Everybody wants to be famous and hold money phones up to their ear on Instagram and Facebook and some people are so desperate to put on that illusion of being successful in life that they will literally do anything, even if it means to risk spending the rest of their lives in jail just to create the illusion.  Another example of this has to deal with one of those dudes who killed rapper XXXTentacion. Don’t know if you all recall, but after they robbed and killed XXXTentacion, one of the killers was flexing on Instagram holding up the stacks of money they killed him over literally within hours after XXXTentacion’s death.

This is what’s popping these days in the world.  Everybody wants to be seen and will do literally anything to make a name for themselves just so they can increase their status on social media in hopes of converting that status into financial gain.  I have a 12 year old son, he’s about to hit that age of becoming more active on social media, so I have to start paying attention to his internet activities even more, but regardless of how much I monitor him, I can’t fully control that stuff.  I just hope my son doesn’t do any dumb shit that’s uploaded to social media that will follow him around for life. I guess that’s part of the beauty of me being an 80s baby and spending my preteen and teenage years in the 90s and even my early 20s in the early 2000s before social media became a thing.  All of the dirt that I did, there is no evidence of it floating around on social media to haunt me for eternity, unless they find a way to download the memories from human beings onto computers, then I’m pretty much good for the most part. But young people these days, it’s like they can’t wait to tell on themselves so that they can potentially go to jail or become infamous for some outlandish unnecessary shit.

Your favorite mulatto.
