The Top Ten

1 Death of Xxxtentacion

He wasn't manipulative or a bad person. Stop making assumptions based on one song lyric. Him dying just because of a petty crime was just sad..I hope his killers spend the rest of their miserable lives in jail. - CharismaticKat

I feel no remorse for Xxx - iliekpiez

He was truly an inspiration and a role model for me and others. Long live XXXTentacion. R.I.P.

Truly tragic. Me and my shadows are praying for the deceased on here. - MrUmbra
