XXXTentacion claims he is receiving hate voicemails for releasing his controversial “Look At Me” music video.
X took to his IG account to post footage of a voicemail he received from an alleged member of the Ku Klux Klan.
“here’s a voicemail for me and my partner left by a KKK member, I have a voicemail where he owns up to being a member of the clan but he says information about my partners business location that I do not want public,
The video was made to reach these people to show “you” they’re response, and it did exactly what it was supposed to,
So here my fellow friends and human beings, is a clear threat of murder over an artistic vision, here is the “role model” supremacists some praise so much, here is the hate that never stays in the public eye”
The person in the audio threatens X, saying, “Yeah m-----------, listen. You got me involved now and I’m gonna hunt that a-- down.” He says, “You want to kill white people? You want to kill black people? You want to play with the K, motherf****r? We’re gonna tear your mothaf***in’ a-- down, b----. We’re coming for ya.”
XXXTentacion’s laid a heavy visual on his fans with the release of his “Look At Me” music video. X’s visual contained imagery of props and lynchings in addition to socio-political commentary at the music video’s conclusion.
X took to social media to speak on the meaning behind the visual.
“The significance of the ‘Look At Me’ video of me knocking out the teacher is because I was teaching a lesson just in case you didn’t catch onto that one,” X said. “That one would probably be hard to catch. But it’s all basically a part of the plan, a sequence.”
X went on to explain the hanging scenes in the visual.
“One more thing too. About me hanging the child, if you don’t remember there’s three people hanging in the beginning,” X said. “There’s three people. I’m 19, Emmett Till is 14, Philando Castille being in his 20s or 30s, but we’re also children.”
