In August UFC bantamweight Sean O’Malley accompanied controversial rapper 6ix9nine to UFC 265 in Houston, TX. The pair have seemingly become friends, as evidenced by O’Malley getting the rapper’s logo tattooed on his shoulder.
During the event 6ix9ine was involved in a minor ruckus with some fans. Check out what happened below.
Cellphone footage from a fan shows the rapper walking past rows of seats. Then, what appears to be a can of beer is thrown at his back. As the can is thrown you hear someone off camera say: “Hey 6ix9ine, you a pussy n****, you a bitch, I’ll beat the shit out of you fuck boy. You’re a fuck boy bitch!”
6ix9ine responds by appearing to throw his drink towards the camera and lash out at someone nearby. Security then swarms and pulls him away, to a chorus of more insults.
If you research 6ix9ine’s past it’s not surprising that he would be publicly derided in this fashion. The rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, was charged with child sexual performance in 2015 for acts committed against a 13-year-old girl. He accepted a plea deal in this case with resulted in him registering as a sex offender in the state of New York.
In 2019, after multiple separate legal issues, he was put on trial for his purported involvement in a street gang. This lead to a plea deal where instead of a 47 year sentence, he was given 13 months under the condition that give testimony against other alleged gang members. He was released to home confinement in early 2020 and was released from those restrictions last August.
