XXXTentacion death conspiracy theories

Yesterday, Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, also known as rapper XXXTentacion, was shot and killed after leaving a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He was shot by two assailants in an apparent robbery, in which the suspects fled the scene. He was in critical condition following the shooting and was rushed to the hospital, where he passed away.

But fans are saying that the rapper is still alive, and that there are more conspiracy theories about XXXTentacion’s death.

While many remember him as an up and coming, talented musician, others paint a picture of something more sinister. He was convicted of beating up his pregnant former girlfriend, Geneva Ayala so severely that she had to have reconstructive surgery on her face. He was also accused of rape and after being sentenced to jail, he attacked his cellmate because he was gay. XXXTentacion had openly struggled with depression and had inner demons, but that’s no excuse for these horrifying allegations.

It should also be noted despite these allegations and his conviction for being abusive, in 2017, he wanted to hold an “anti-rape” event (though this never came to fruition) during Miami Art Week. After another woman spoke out against his abuse, he claimed he pledged to donate $100,000 to a woman’s organization that helps victims of domestic violence, of which there is no record of donation.

Still, fans are adamant their beloved rapper didn’t really die and that he faked his own death. People later captured his lifeless body hanging out of his car, uploading the graphic, NSFW video to social media.

Here are some of the theories surrounding XXXTentacion’s death.

1. The tattoos on the body in the video are different.

XXXTentacion had a tattoo on his forehead but that same tattoo is apparently missing on the body. But could it just be the angle? Was the lighting off? Is the tattoo farther down on his forehead?

2. There wasn’t blood on his body.

In the video, fans allege that there was no blood on his chest, face, or body. There were apparently no bullets, either. They also claim there was no glass shattered, though his window may have been rolled down. But it’s hard to tell from the video and pictures if the blood is actually missing or just out of frame. And the same goes for the bullet shells.

3. It was a staged scene for a music video.

He had previously released a video of him hanging himself, which worried fans and outraged others. He later commented that it was a promotion for a music video, “Look At Me,” and posted on Instagram, “If you thought I would 'pretend' to kill myself for a publicity stunt you're f****** stupid.”

Fans believe he’s doing this a second time around and that footage of him dead in the car is actually just for an upcoming music video.

4. He made a video to confirm he isn’t dead.

The only problem is that this video came out months ago so it couldn’t possibly be about him being shot. It was, in fact, a response to the hanging by suicide video he released. He posted it on his Instagram story awhile time ago.

5. He foreshadowed his own death.

A few months ago, XXXTentacion released a video on his Instagram that foreshadowed his own death, saying: 

“Worst thing comes to worst, I f****** die a tragic death or some s*** — and I’m not able to see out my dreams — I at least want to know that the kids perceived my message and were able to make something of themselves and able to take my message and use it and turn it into something positive. And to at least have a good life... If I’m gonna die, or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least 5 million kids happy — or they found some sort of answers or resolve in my life. Regardless of the negative around my name.”

It’s kind of sad that with this generation so obsessed with social media and the internet, reality is hard to come by. They cannot live in denial forever and must face the facts eventually that their beloved rapper is dead. Sadly, the conspiracy theories look to be just that: conspiracies.
