Rapper J. Cole Blackmailed by Fan on Twitter
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

be newsRapper J. Cole was blackmailed by a fan who tweeted a photo of a little girl with a gun to her head and claimed he would shoot her if Cole did not “retweet” his message.

The fan tweeted last night “@JColeNC retweet me and I’ll buy Born Sinner. Don’t retweet me and I’ll kill my lil sister.”

Shortly after the threat,  Cole did retweet the message.

It’s unclear if the gun is real or where the perpetrator actually lives. The account claims to be in Saudi Arabia and has since been taken down.

“Wildest s**t I ever seen on twitter.” J Cole tweeted this morning, referring to the bizarre incident.
