On Tuesday night, 6ix9ine was in dire need of security as he was attacked by a group of men at a local gym in Florida. According to TMZ, 6ix9ine was at LA Fitness at the time and was enjoying some time in the sauna. That’s when the men popped out and started beating him. As Tekashi’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro explained, he attempted to fend off these attackers, but to no avail. Furthermore, the whole thing was captured on video, with clips hitting the internet. As you can imagine, the whole thing has gone viral.
As TMZ reports, Lazzaro has every intention of calling the feds. This is because he wants 6ix9ine to have some sort of protection, moving forward. Although 6ix9ine has been very antagonistic towards others, this is the first time he has been touched in such a way since his trial. Ultimately, this could be a wake-up call that he does need security, as anything can happen to him at any time.
