Rapper 6ix9nine (real name David Hernandez) admitted in court that he filmed the illegal sex act and uploaded it online. He boasted that he made pelvic thrusting motions behind a naked 13-year-old girl while filming.
Theculturechronicles.com reports: In a separate video, the naked 13 year old girl is seen sitting on Hernandez’s lap while another man gropes her breasts. According to court documents, Hernandez was 18 years old at the time.
So one needs to ask, why is someone who admitted to filming a 13 year old girl in a sex act being promoted by Instagram? Facebook owns Instagram, and when someone searches for rappers, the account of 6ix9ine can up as a “suggestion”.
So not only is Hernandez not banned from the platform after distributing videos of naked 13 year old girls, he is actually promoted on the platform.
6ix9ine also has an active channel on YouTube, his latest video posted has over 125 million views.
It would seem is this bizarre Orwellian world, discussing alternative narratives for national news events is grounds for internet-wide banning by social media companies. However, filming a 13 year old girl performing oral sex and posting it online is grounds to have your Instagram and YouTube accounts promoted by those same companies.
