Kanye West, Diplo, Louis Theroux And More React To The Death Of XXXTentacion

The Florida rapper was killed this morning in Miami.

Twitter has been flooded this morning with reactions to the death of Florida rapper XXXTentacion, who was shot dead this morning in Miami.

The 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was reportedly rushed to hospital after being shot outside a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach north of Miami on Monday afternoon, local time. He was pronounced dead at the hospital, confirmed by the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.

Some members of the music community, including Kanye West, J. Cole, Juicy J and Diplo, have taken to social media to pay respect.

 

Others readily acknowledge XXXTentacion’s alleged history of homophobia and sexual and domestic abuse, with rapper Kreayshawn saying that “death is not an answer to a cycle [of] homophobia and abuse.”
