Tekashi 6ix9ine Talks About Being Fat Shamed

By Daryl Nelson

Tekashi 6ix9ine isn't a person you'd exactly call humble, but he showed some humility in a video he recently posted. In it, he talked about gaining too much weight and how people have been fat shaming him. The Brooklyn rapper also said that he plans to shed some of those pounds and people should be seeing some results over the next month.

“I’ve been making a lot of money for the past couple of months, and I kind of let myself go," said Tekashi with DJ Akademiks sitting right next to him. " I’ve been gaining a lot of weight, and a lot of people have been calling me fat. And they’re drawing pictures of me. Instead of drawing me like the regular Tekashi, they’re drawing me like fat Tekashi. I’ve been making a lot of money and haven’t been caring about my physical appearance. So I want my fans to, like, join me."

Do you think Tekashi will be successful at shedding the excess weight?
