6ix9ine addressed the viral gym beatdown for the first time, and he didn’t hold back while discussing the men who reportedly took part in the assault.

In an Instagram post, the rainbow-hair rapper (actual name Daniel Hernandez) described to his attackers as “cowards” and said, “never knew we respected jumping people. When did that ever become a W?

But he was also quick to remark that he wasn’t “mad about being jumped” as there are “no rules” when it comes to the street life. “I can’t say they were wrong,” he said in his Instagram caption.

Moreover, 6ix9ine claimed that he “never hid from anything” and confirmed that he had been walking around without security for the past two years.

“If you ever crossed my path or ever came to my house (you girls know who you are) ya can tell the world “Danny drives his own cars and be solo,” he wrote. “You know how many of you people seen me in real life by myself in gas stations, supermarkets, restaurants, etc.”

The “GUMMO” rapper can take comfort in knowing that the suspected attackers of his assault have been arrested for the crime.

On March 30, Palm Beach County, Florida police arrested Rafael Medina Jr., 43; Octavious Medina, 23; and Anthony Maldonado, 25. According to jail records, the three was booked in the Palm Beach County Jail on charges of robbery and assault.

According to TMZ at the time, 6ix9ine was “brutally” beaten by a group of men who jumped him while he was in a sauna at a LA Fitness.

The rapper tried to fight off the attackers, but his lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, said that he was outnumbered and brutally beaten before he was able to escape. At the time, he was alone and without security.

As gym staff heard the ruckus, they called law enforcement and paramedics, and 6ix9ine was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

The controversial rapper released the music video for his brand-new track “Bori” on Friday, March 31. In the video, 6ix9ine travels to Cuba and shows off his generous side by distributing $50,000 in US currency to the locals.

He also appears to be receiving medical treatment for the injuries he got during the beating. He is never one to pass up the chance to capitalize in on a viral moment, good or bad. Shortly after the incident, video of the Brooklyn native hiking in Cuba appeared; the “Bori” video now provides further insight as to why he was there.
