The Cuban government is investigating 6ix9ine ever since a man impersonating the rapper threw money into the public outside his hotel, creating chaos.
According to a report released in the Miami Herald on Friday (Feb. 17), a 6ix9ine lookalike threw what seems to be cash into a huge crowd, causing a street riot to erupt. Fans of the Brooklyn, New York rapper were reportedly gathered just outside of the Grand Packard Iberostar hotel in Cuba's Old Havana neighborhood on Thursday (Feb. 16) when someone began throwing money from a car.
When this occurred, flocked to the area to obtain the accusation cash. Local media reported that the money was lobbed from a balcony at the five-star hotel where 6ix9ine was residing, but that information could not be confirmed.
A guy is standing on top of a car and flinging money in the air in a video that went viral on Twitter. Thousands of people are racing towards the spot, and what appear to be dollar notes are floating in the air.
According to the Cuban news website Informacion, Cuban officials condemned the act and called it "disrespectful" to their country.
"The Ministry stated that it was 'two people outside the singer, one of them pretending to be him' who 'in a disrespectful way and with clear purpose of provocation, threw bills at the population,'" it stated.
