Tekashi 6ix9ine snitch memes dunk on and reprimand the rapper for snitching on fellow members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang. Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez pleaded guilty in January to charges including racketeering conspiracy. Since then, he has become a star witness for prosecutors, testifying in trials against other gang members and describing the inner workings of the Nine Trey Bloods. Because he has offered this testimony, prosecutors have agreed to lobby for a shorter sentence than the 47 years to life he currently faces. In court last week, Tekashi 69 named prominent rappers Jim Jones and Cardi B as members of the Nine Trey Bloods as well.

Tekashi 6ix9ine In Witness Protection

Since Daniel Hernandez has received death threats related to the gang members he testified against, prosecutors have suggested that he could enter the witness protection program. However, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s fame, signature rainbow hair and numerous tattoos including a large “69” on his face might make it difficult for him to discreetly disappear. Thus, a number of memes joke about 6ix9ine attempting to blend in despite his highly recognizable appearance.
