My heart dropped when I heard about @xxxtentacion , I feel like we only got to see a glimpse of his artistry. I didn’t know him personally but I respect how passionate he was about his music and message. Nobody deserves this kind of ending. gone too soon, damn! RIP

Others responded to the the fact that the rapper was awaiting trial for domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. Prosecutors accused XXXTentacion of witness tampering as he awaited trial for more than a dozen charges.
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.
