Fan Who Threatened To Kill Own Sister Over J.Cole Retweet Being Investigated
Earlier this week, we reported on the super-stan teenage fan who tweeted a photo of himself holding what looked like a real gun to his little sister’s head and threatening to kill her if he didn’t get a re-tweeted from Roc Natioin rapper J.Cole, who recently released an album.
After the photo went viral and caused an uproar across the internet, it has since been reported that the boy behind the tweet is now under investigation.
The idiot who blackmailed rapper J. Cole on Twitter yesterday — by threatening to kill his little sister if J. Cole didn’t retweet him — is now being investigated by police, TMZ has learned.
A rep for the New Braunfels Police Department in Texas tells us, they have opened an investigation into the 19-year-old responsible for the tweet … after the picture (showing the fan aiming a gun at his sister’s face) was brought to their attention.
The rep says the teenager in question “is cooperating and it seems this was just a bad lapse in judgment.” Police say the gun in the picture is a BB gun, not an actual handgun.
The rep adds, “For now this is still an open investigation, and for the time being no charges are being filed.”
TMZ also spoke to the knuckle-headed teenager behind the bogus Tweet shortly after ish hit the fan. Hit the flip to hear what he had to say…
As for the teenager — we spoke to the kid, and he has profusely apologized for sending the message, telling us, “I’d like to apologize to America for the photo and to put J. Cole in that position. It was all a joke.”
He added, “It was an unloaded BB gun and my sister was in on it. I only tweeted it because I didn’t expect a response. Mr. Cole please don’t sue me.
I want to formally apologize more to J. Cole and yeah my mom made me delete my twitter until I fixed it.”
So there you have it. DON’T BE STUPID, KIDS.
Teenager or not, how in the world could he have thought this would be funny???
