Director of 6ix9ine’s upcoming documentary calls rapper a ‘horrible human being’

The documentary of 6ix9ine’s rise to fame will be premiered on Sunday, February 21 at 10/9c on SHOWTIME. This documentary contains exclusive interview with Tekashi 6ix9ine after his release from prison earlier last year.

Director Karam Gill told Page Six, “I think viewers will be shocked to realise how hyper calculated [he is]” Gill said. “Tekashi was someone who never did anything online on accident. Every click, word and action online was designed with care to spark a reaction.”

“We’re living in the era of manufactured celebrity, where people can create inauthentic online personas and rise to fame without any talent or morals. Tekashi’s story is exactly that — he’s someone who realised the power of having your own platform”, said Karam.

He added, “Daniel Hernandez never was interviewed for [the docuseries], and never participated. It is interesting and almost unbelievable without ever having met the person… how [the director] characterised him,” he added. “ It’s hard to fathom. No one can comment about his talent… and how he characterised him when he never met the person.”
