The massive news immediately generated a ton of social media reactions. People have lit up their Twitter pages to share mixed thoughts on 6ix9ine getting out of prison.
Before You Go
In March 2020, Tekashi’s legal team requested he get released from prison. The request came after coronavirus started to spread across the nation at a rapid pace.
6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, wrote a letter to the judge Sunday night citing serious concerns for Tekashi’s wellbeing behind bars. Lazzaro says Tekashi suffers from asthma — making catching coronavirus that much more serious — and he wants him out ASAP. In the letter — obtained by TMZ — Lazzaro also reveals Tekashi was diagnosed with bronchitis and sinusitis late last year and was hospitalized for treatment. (TMZ)
