The explosive news about the arrests of Young Thug, Gunna, and 26 of their alleged associates has shocked hip-hop. Thug and Gunna have been named in a 56-count indictment that alleges the two chart-topping rappers were involved in gang activity. Queen Naija is getting the heat on Twitter after Young Thug and Gunna’s arrest.
Following the arrests of Young Thug and Gunna, the Internet’s favorite scapegoat has become a hot issue. Queen Naija is currently trending on Twitter as fans joke that the R&B singer is to blame for YSL’s bust. Thug and Gunna were among 28 people charged in Georgia for conspiring to break state-wide RICO statutes.
Thug is accused of being one of three co-founders of Young Slime Life, a “criminal street gang that began in late 2012,” according to the indictment, which is linked to the Bloods. Thug’s is accused of “Preserving, protecting and enhancing the reputation, power and territory of the enterprise through acts of racketeering activity including murder, assault and threats of violence.”
Following the news, Queen Naija rapidly became a Twitter trend. Following her colorist comments fiasco, for which she eventually apologized, Twitter was quick to point the fault at the R&B artist.
One person commented: “i saw queen naija wearing a YSL chain the other day too.”
Another person said: “Me working with Thug’s legal team to somehow blame this on Queen Naija.”
A third one chimed in: “didn’t Queen Naija invent YSL?”
During a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Queen Naija addressed the tendency of being despised on Twitter. According to the R&B artist, the overwhelming hate stems from a vocal minority who truly enjoy her. Take a look at some of the reactions below.
