YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has published his theory as to why American rapper Daniel ‘Tekashi 6ix9ine’ Hernandez is facing from 32 years to life in prison.
PewDiePie Tweeted out this theory on November 21, humorously speculating that the rapper would rather go to jail than host an episode of his ‘Meme Review’ show.
“Did [6ix9ine] just put himself in prison to avoid a Meme Review collab?” PewDiePie wrote. “Smh 😭”

PewDiePie asked Tekashi to host the show in an episode of Meme Review on November 7, should he reach his goal of 69,696,969 million subscribers. While he has since met his goal (now sitting at over 71 million subs), Tekashi has yet to respond - likely because the rapper is now in the general population of the Metropolitan Detention Center of Brooklyn.
Tekashi faces 32 years up to life in prison for six federal charges of gang-related offenses, including racketeering and armed robbery - just a month after he managed to avoid charges of sexual misconduct with an underage girl.
Tekashi is now undergoing jail time for his crimes, and faces a particularly dangerous prison population in the process. However, prosecutor Michael Longyear claimed that the rapper was a major target before being taken into custody, stating that his crew wanted to “super violate” him (here meaning to harm, shoot, or even kill).
Tekashi was taken in after a planned trip to a Connecticut casino, where Longyear feared for an attempt on the rapper’s life that could have placed bystanders in danger.
