The assault of 6ix9ine in a gym bathroom rocked the media and fans everywhere, and many have waited for the rapper to respond. Finally, a bit over a week after the incident, he posted lengthy messages to Instagram addressing the issue. While many saw this as retribution for his antics and for his taunting, it also opened up a much more important conversation on the dangers of retaliatory and provocative behavior as a whole. Sure, many expressed happiness, but that doesn’t get to the heart of the issue. With that in mind, the rainbow-haired MC first had some words of gratitude.
“HEY GUYS,” Daniel Hernandez wrote on Instagram. Moreover, he captioned a video of him in the hospital, around nature, and on set as a music video for his latest track “Bori” featuring Lenier. “IM BACK THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CALLED AND REACHED OUT. I LOVE YOU GUYS FOREAL. NEW MUSIC VIDEO LINK IN MY BIO. LIVING LEGEND/LEYENDA VIVA OUT NOW. GO SHARE AND COMMENT #LAFITNESS @lenieroficial.” However, that wasn’t the end of the 26-year-old’s acknowledgement of the violent situation, or of his own instigations.

“First time addressing the situation,” he wrote in a separate post along with a video of the attack. “For 2 years I been walking around with no security. Not saying I promote that BUT now you see I really never hid from anything. If you ever crossed my path or ever came to my house (you girls know who you are) ya can tell the world ‘Danny drives his own cars and be solo.’ You know how many of you people seen me in real life by myself in gas stations, supermarkets, restaurants, etc.
