Florida hip-hop artist XXXTentacion was shot dead Monday in what officials believe to have been an armed robbery. Reception to his death has been mixed - with many artists coming out on Twitter to lament his wasted potential. The death was also met with as much controversy as he received during his life.
XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, spent much of his career in jail for various felonies, and most upsettingly - severely assaulting his pregnant girlfriend. Memers do not take kindly to injustices such as this. While redditors generally avoid meme-ing the dead, XXXTentacion's sinister side makes memers feel this is an exception. And the memes are kinda brutal. Even more unsettling? The bizarre conspiracy theories that Jahseh is still alive. It seems fans have been spreading an old clip of the artist claiming he is still alive, and it has caused a great amount of confusion.
