"so xxxtentacion was shot...regardless of what he did in the past no one deserves to have their life taken from them," another person said. "let's hope for the best."
Prayers for XXXTENTACION bruh.
Crazy how once you try to turn your life around and be positive niggas take you out.— VI Seconds (@visecs) June 18, 2018
"I know XXXTentacion wasn't everyone's cup of tea but no one deserves to get shot. Sure X made some bad mistakes down the road, but to celebrate his death? WTF is wrong with people...," one other Twitter user tweeted. "Prays to [XXXTentacion.]"
Many of the polarized opinions on XXXTentacion — real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy — stem from his many legal troubles, including allegedly assaulting the woman pregnant with his child.
No love for @xxxtentacion but certainly no hate. May this be a warning to the young men who listen to him that karma is real and if you live a destructive life you will be destroyed by it no matter how talented you are. RIP.— Ronald Funches (@RonFunches) June 18, 2018
"If you're happy that young 20-year-Old rapper XXXTentacion has died, then you're sick and there's something wrong with you," one person commented.
"from what I've read xxxtentacion is still alive, he has been taken to a hospital as trauma alert," someone else clarified, adding, "Also for anybody making jokes about this please just stop, nothing about anybody potentially dying is funny at all."
