T.I. Asks Why The KKK Hasn’t ‘Been Hit W/ A RICO’ Case Amid Young Thug & Gunna’s Ongoing Legal Issues

 T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr., is the latest celebrity to show his support for fellow rappers Young Thug and Gunna amid their latest legal problems.

On Wednesday (May 11), T.I. took to his IG account and shared a post with his 14.3 million followers asking why the infamous Ku Klux Klan hasn’t been hit with a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) charge. The text post he shared states,

“Why the KKK ain’t been hit wit a RICO…”

Many people flooded the 41-year-old entertainer’s comment section with remarks agreeing with the question he asked.

However, some IG users did share their disagreement with T.I.’s post.

As previously reported, on Monday (May 9) Young Thug, born Jeffery Williams, was arrested in a gang-related indictment that named 28 people, including Gunna, born Sergio Kitchens. Young Thug was taken into police custody at a Buckhead home on an 88-page indictment, including murder, robbery, and assault charges. He was also hit with 7 additional felony charges after police raided his home.

According to reports, the additional charges include; possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of firearm during commission of a felony, possession of sawed-off-shotgun, sawed-off rifle, machine gun, dangerous weapon or silencer, and three charges of unlawful participation in criminal gang activity while employed by/associated with a criminal street gang.

The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said it worked for over a year in collaboration with other agencies to put the indictment together. Prosecutors claim Young Thug is a leader of the Young Slime Life gang, which formed in Atlanta in 2012.

Following Young Thug’s arrest, Gunna turned himself over to authorities in Fulton County.
