Alicia Keys bounced on Twitter to co-sign the late XXXTentacion on Friday, and the web was dazed. X-X’s legacy is complicated. Before he was killed in Florida in June X-X was anticipating trial for domestic violence charges.
In spite of the fact that the artist’s supposed history of maltreatment ought to never be pardoned, his musical talent is hard to disregard. Alicia Keys recognized X-X’s talent when she tweeted, “Such a vibe!! Big love to the talented @xxxtentacion !! Gone too soon.” She went with the caption with a video of her and her child Egypt playing the piano while singing “What Are You So Afraid Of.”

Only a couple of hours after Keys posted the tweet, she erased it. The web was not satisfied with her support of X-X, refering to his history of maltreatment as a purpose behind his abrogation from the culture.
“Honestly, of all the days for Alicia Keys to give that X-X abuser a shoutout, why today??” tweeted one user. “Oh man alicia . we believed in you,” shouted another. Alicia Keys presently can’t seem to react to the kickback, other than erasing the tweet being referred to.
XXXTentacion’s after death album Skins dropped in December and hit number one on Billboard’s 200 chart. It’s as of now sitting at the #35 spot following three weeks.
