Tekashi 6ix9ine Hospitalized After Attack Inside Gym Bathroom
We’re sending up a prayer for Tekashi 6ix9ine.
The rapper was brutally beaten by a group of men inside the bathroom of a Florida gym Tuesday.
The 26-year-old musician was rushed to the hospital after the attack inside the restroom of an LA Fitness.
A video posted to Twitter shows two men towering over 6ix9ine as he lies on the bathroom floor, trying to protect his head from the blows.

The men yell at him to “shut the f–k up” as one kicks his stomach and the other punches his head.
Tekashi, legal name Daniel Hernandez, can be heard as he walks out of the restroom with a bloodied face saying some men jumped him. The cameraman tells him he’s a fan but doesn’t appear to help.
The Brooklyn native was inside the sauna when he was attacked. He did not have security with him at the time, his attorney told TMZ.
The rapper was taken to a hospital in an ambulance after police and EMS were called. A photo obtained by the outlet shows the rapper’s face red and bloodied. Tekashi also suffered injuries to his jaw, ribs and back, according to the site.
He was sentenced to two years in prison in 2019 for his role in the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.
He was facing decades in prison on racketeering and other charges but took a plea deal that lowered his time in exchange for helping the feds take down his former Bloods associates.
The assistant US attorney said at the time that 6ix9ine “will forever have to look over his shoulder.”
It’s unclear if Tuesday’s attack had anything to do with the rapper’s cooperation with the feds. His lawyer told TMZ that he plans to call the feds to ensure he gets proper protection.
