(AllHipHop News) Alicia Keys took to Twitter Friday evening to reveal her support for XXXTentacion, only to delete it hours later.


The tweet was paired with a video of Keys and her son Egypt playing the piano while covering XXX’s song “what are you so afraid of.”

The caption read, “Such a vibe!! Big love to the talented @xxxtentacion !! Gone too soon.”

Unfortunately, Twitter users were not a fan of her support for the late Florida rapper, who was accused of disturbing sexual assault charges before he was gunned down in June of 2018.

Many responded with negativity and hate, in light of XXX’s track record of abuse.

View some of the reactions below.
