Since many of his fans have turned against him for “snitching,” 6ix9ine has lost his respect and on Friday, it was evident during a baseball game with a video of a Puerto Rico fan throwing a beer can at him viral
The World Baseball Classic game between Mexico and Puerto Rico took place at LoanDepot Park in Miami, and the rapper, better known as Tekashi69, was present. Also, he looked to get into an argument with other fans and came dangerously close to getting smacked in the face with a beer can.
When the can whizzed by him, the 26-year-old was waving the Mexican flag. In the video down below, a man throwing the item is seen donning a red jersey and a black hat. According to reports, park staff later moved 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, to a different seat. Yet he might also have been booted from the game.
Prominent baseball reporter Aram Leighton remarked that the argument started because 6ix9ine was just despised.

6ix9ine meets Big Papi
The Puerto Rican legend was pleased to greet 6ix9ine, who was obviously an outsider in the throng. David Ortiz was glad to meet Tekashi even though he wasn’t well-liked by fans when they ran into each other in an elevator. In a congested elevator at the game, David “Big Papi” Ortiz recognised 6ix9ine and he did not think twice to say hello.
As soon as Ortiz recognised him, Tekashi immediately saluted him and showed signs of relief. With Mexico’s thrilling comeback victory to eliminate Puerto Rico later that same night, it’s likely that a cocky Tekashi got into more problems.

Puerto Rico is eliminated by Mexico.
Puerto Rico jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, which they held for the duration of the game. Nonetheless, Mexico steadily made progress before taking the lead in the seventh inning with three RBIs in two at-bats. The Mexico squad, who took first place in Pool C, tenaciously held onto its hard-earned lead late in the game to win 5-4.
On Monday at 7 p.m. ET on FS1, Mexico will play Japan in the World Baseball Classic semifinals. Japan, the winner of Pool B, will be making its sixth consecutive appearance in the semifinals after defeating Italy in the quarterfinals. This will be Mexico’s first-ever match against Japan as a team.
