SAD! US rapper 6ix9ine brutally beaten at LA gym (+VIDEO)
US rapper 6ix9ine, also known as Daniel Hernandez, was brutally attacked at a gym in South Florida on Tuesday.
The incident, which was captured on video and quickly trended on social media, showed the rapper being beaten up by a group of assailants in the gym’s restroom and sauna.
According to his lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, Hernandez suffered facial damage and bruises during the attack, which was carried out by three or four individuals.
The attackers fled the scene when gym employees heard the commotion. The rapper was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, and it is unclear whether he is still receiving care.
Hernandez, who was released from federal jail in April 2020, was arrested in 2019 on charges of racketeering, drug trafficking, and firearm violations.
He was given a two-year prison term for his association with the Nine Trey Bloods gang. However, his sentence was reduced after he cooperated with federal agents in putting his associates behind bars.
The rapper’s legal team has stated that Hernandez wants to ensure his safety and security following the recent attack.
The incident comes after Hernandez was reportedly removed from a Miami baseball stadium last week for being inebriated and causing a disturbance.
