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.
