Mark Wright is a famous English TV presenter and soccer expert. He was slammed by fans for dressing up as the problematic rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine. He shared a number of photos and videos from his wild Halloween-themed night out on his Instagram. They were not received well.

Mark’s costume sparked controversy due to the fact the rapper pleaded guilty to ‘the use of a child in a sexual performance’ back in 2018.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, also pleaded guilty to nine charges including conspiracy to commit murder and armed robbery in 2019. He also snitched on all of his friends later on.

Mark has since admitted that he knew nothing about the rapper’s vile offences. He insisted that he had only been familiar with Tekashi’s music.

“Had I known, it would not have been my choice of costume.”

He posted the apology on his Instagram story on Sunday. Check out the Photo in question below. Obviously, this goes to show that you have to watch your Halloween costume decisions. So, burn all of your Cosby sweaters to eliminate that temptation.
