As Gunna has been out, many more are joining the bandwagon of unfollowing Gunna on social media. Over the recent weekend, fans that observe noticed Meek Mill had unfollowed Gunna on Instagram, shortly after they discovered Lil Baby had unfollowed him as well.
All the pent-up animosity stems from the backlash that erupted after Gunna took an Alford plea deal in court. He admitted his guilt while also protecting his innocence. Gunna was released from jail on December 14th of last year, after the Atlanta rapper pleaded guilty to a single charge in his RICO case.
With Young Thug still behind bars, a video surfaced online of Gunna saying YSL is a gang. This statement does not help Thug’s current situation, as prosecutors pinpoint him to be the leader of the gang.
What’s interesting is Meek Mill had Gunna’s back when the YSL crew had gotten arrested, even dedicated a whole tweet stating “Free Gunna ASAP.” Given that Meek Mill has had his own experiences with the system, he even wrote that “everybody deserves a bail.”
With Gunna’s actions under high surveillance, his first post on Instagram since his release certainly didn’t help the situation. Posting a photo of himself in what appears to be his living room, Gunna writes in the caption: “N*ggas acting like they switching to a side But it’s only one side . #YsltheLabel #FreeThug&Yak GUNNA BACC!!!!!”
If that’s not enough, Lil Durk recently posted a video snippet of an unreleased song, leaving the fans concluding a subliminal shot at Gunna.
Lil Durk raps in the clip: “What happened to Virgil he probably gon’ tell, I let him go because Timo ain’t selling. Thank 7 and Booka, I’m bragging on Melvin. When lil boo and them mad, it ain’t nothing you can tell them. I can tell you what I did for the streets. You got the paperwork, did it and reached. I got on Clubhouse and got in the beef.”
Lil Durk and Gunna previously collaborated on a song called ”What Happened to Virgil,” released in 2022. Durk’s lyrics also pointed to the fact that Gunna may be a snitch, and that he may have other names in the YSL RICO indictment.
The most surprising unfollow comes from Lil Baby, mostly because the two were a duo in the beginning and collaborated on endless hit records and even created a whole mixtape together (Drip Harder released in 2018). Aside from cutting social media ties, Young Thug’s sister and brother seemingly did not support Gunna’s Instagram post either.
While the judge sentenced Gunna to five years with time served, the remaining time was suspended. Gunna’s current deal includes serving 500 hours of community service.
