After rapper Silentó was arrested last week and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, he went viral on social media. But not for his arrest.
The 22-year-old rapper, who is best known for his hit "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)", was arrested after he allegedly entered a random home in the Los Angeles area wielding a hatchet, ABC 7 reports.
He was tackled to the floor by the home's occupants, but he escaped and was caught by police about 2 blocks away.
According to gossipmongers, Silentó went into the home in search of his girlfriend who leaked a vulgar image of him online.
Silentó, real name Richard Hawk, trended online after the photo went viral on Twitter.com. The photo was originally posted in a private sub on Reddit.com titled Silentó bussy. "Bussy" is a colloquial term for "boy pu**y."
The graphic image shows a young man snapping a graphic selfie after engaging in a tryst with another man.
But the person in the photo is not Silentó.
The man was identified by Twitter users as an Internet p0rn star named Da Don (not to be confused with Lori Harvey's new boyfriend, Da Donn.
Da Don (the p0rn star) is a 26-year-old male who earns a living posting p0rnograpic material to sites like OnlyFans.
Although he is 26, he looks like a teenager being sexually abused by grown men in videos.
Da Don's filthy images and videos are easily accessible to children on Twitter.com.
