6ix9ine has found himself the subject of criticism once again.
For, the director for his upcoming docuseries, Karam Gill, had a lot to say about him.
Her words below…
He told Page Six:
“I think viewers will be shocked to realize how hyper calculated the rapper is. Tekashi was someone who never did anything online on accident. Every click, word, and action online was designed with care to spark a reaction.
The public and media hates him because he is truly a horrible human being who has done terrible things. And from an overall perspective, he loves to instigate and aggravate which is something that naturally sparks a reaction.
I never really wanted to explore Tekashi’s story specifically, and actually was hesitant about the project at first because of how he has been such a toxic individual in our culture. [But] from a wider scope, I realized it’s an extremely important story that shines a light on where we are as a culture. We’re living in the era of manufactured celebrity, where people can create inauthentic online personas and rise to fame without any talent or morals. Tekashi’s story is exactly that—he’s someone who realized the power of having your own platform.”
While the director never met 6ix9ine in person, he used a feature from Rolling Stone to create ‘Supervillain: The Making of Tekashi 6ix9ine.’
Gill’s comments drew the attention of the rapper’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, who came to Tekashi’s defense. He told TMZ that Gill knows nothing about the rapper and that 6ix9ine has nothing to do with the upcoming series.
‘Supervillain: The Making of Tekashi 6ix9ine’ debuts February 21 on Showtime.
