When Young Thug, Gunna, and several other YSL affiliates were arrested under the Georgia RICO Act, the hip-hop industry was shaken. The case is still ongoing and making headlines. Gunna was recently denied bail for the third time, and Kim has now spoken out about it.

Kim Kardashian has spoken out in response to the news that Gunna has again been denied pre-trial release in the YSL case. “Imagine sitting in a jail cell for 155 days with no bond when the only evidence against you is a ticket for an unrelated window tint and someone saying you weren’t in a gang,” Kardashian said in multiple-part posts shared to Instagram Stories and Twitter on Thursday night.

That’s where my friend Sergio finds himself today after having his bond denied for the third time despite there being zero evidence that he committed a crime.

This week, Gunna’s third bond motion was rejected. A judge asserted the same witness intimidation argument used in prior rejections. Meanwhile, Gunna’s legal team has consistently stated that there is “no evidence” against their client that would justify holding him until trial.

The State has presented no evidence to support its claims of dangerousness and has dismissed the only serious overt act (75) that was present when the first bond hearing was held.

In her statement, Kardashian emphasized various aspects of Gunna’s mistreatment since the case began, including the witness intimidation argument. “Since his incarceration, I have worked with his legal team and the facts of his case are yet another example of why the ‘justice system’ is anything but just,” Kardashian said. Elsewhere, Kardashian raised the possibility of the trial being continued, extending Gunna’s incarceration.

She also urged the public to “demand better” than what is currently being shown in this case. “Sergio deserves better and we all should demand better,” Kardashian, who previously showed public support for Gunna with a “Free P” post, wrote. The practice of criminalizing creative expression has been a frequently discussed topic in the wake of the YSL case.

The nationwide issue is at the heart of the Protect Black Art petition, which was launched earlier this year. Let’s see how the case proceeds. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
