Tekashi 6ix9ine, the rapper with a history of rule-breaking and disturbances, was removed from his section at LoanDepot Park in Miami for being heavily intoxicated and causing a disturbance during a World Baseball Classic game between Mexico and Puerto Rico.
He was reportedly disrupting other fans’ experiences and bothering families in attendance.
A source who witnessed the incident described him as “drunk” and “out of control.” Video footage of Tekashi shows him standing up, waving a large flag, blocking other fans’ views, and pulling on the net.
He was also seen falling over and losing balance in another video. Officials eventually intervened and asked him to leave, which he did while still waving his flag and greeting fans.
The incident occurred towards the end of the game, and Tekashi had been causing trouble for several innings. It is unclear if he has been banned from LoanDepot Park. The sold-out crowd of nearly 300,000 people was able to witness Mexico’s 5-4 victory over Puerto Rico after Tekashi left.
This is not the first time Tekashi has been removed from a public place for being too drunk. In January, he was thrown out of a Miami restaurant for pouring bottles of tequila into patrons’ mouths for free. In 2019, he was sentenced to two years in prison for racketeering conspiracy and eight other charges.
The World Baseball Classic has attracted big names over the past week, including Daddy Yankee, Marc Anthony, and Flo Rida. A source told Page Six that everyone else has been having a good time representing different countries, and the event has been flawless.
Tekashi’s representatives did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment on the incident.
