XXXTentacion is once again trying to do something good for the people of South Florida. Saturday (April 7), video surfaced of the “Look at Me” rapper announcing an upcoming anti-gun rally and paintball “war.”
In the Instagram video, XXX stands in a room full of men, some of whom are wielding paintball guns. “Next Saturday, we’re doing an event called Put Down the Guns,” the rapper announces. “Paintball war, Broward vs. Dade County. Come.”
X didn’t give any more details on the upcoming event, making it seem like the announcement was a bit spur of the moment.
XXX has tried to put on events in the past. In November, he announced he was going to host an anti-rape event during 2017 Art Basel. When that event fell through, he offered fans a free concert. Last month, he partnered with the Miami Children’s Initiative for an event series to help local youth.
Recently, he has made the headlines again for his alleged transgressions against women. A couple weeks ago, video surfaced that shows him striking a woman in the head. He’s feels the new claims are an attempt at extortion. He says the video was made when he was 15 and a joke on both his and the girl’s part.
“This ‘terrified’ woman decides to post this video now, conveniently when [XXXTentacion] becomes famous,” the rapper’s lawyer says. “Draw your conclusions.”
