A twisted fan threatened to murder a child if J. Cole didn't retweet him last night on Twitter. The sicko said he would by buy Cole's new album if the rapper retweeted his message. If not, he wrote that he would kill his little sister. A picture of a hand holding a gun pointed at a little girl was included in the tweet.
Cole did retweet the message and later wrote it's the craziest thing he's ever seen on Twitter.
The person that made the threat just tweeted that it was an unloaded BB gun in the picture and that people should lighten up.
Obviously this idiot fails to realize that pointing any kind of gun at a child is not anyone's idea of a joke.
TMZ contacted the police in Cole's home state of North Carolina to see if they were investigating the incident. So far they haven't heard anything about it.
**UPDATE** June 19th.
TMZ is reporting that an investigation into the incident has been started by the New Braunfels Police Department in Texas. The 19-year old man who sent the tweet has issued an apology.
I'd like to apologize to America for the photo and to put J. Cole in that position. It was all a joke. It was an unloaded BB gun and my sister was in on it. I only tweeted it because I didn't expect a response. Mr. Cole please don't sue me. I want to formally apologize more to J. Cole and yeah my mom made me delete my twitter until I fixed it.
