Tekashi 6ix9ine sparked outrage on social media when he whispered “f— Brittney Griner” after landing in Russia, where he’s set to perform in concert.

A YouTube video shows the washed-up rapper dissing Griner while sight-seeing in Russia.

“You know we out here,” he said in the video. “Sh** is crazy.” He then stepped closer to the camera, raised his sunglasses and whispered “F*ck Brittney Griner.”

The WNBA star was sentenced to 9 years in a women’s prison for smuggling drugs into Russia earlier this year.

Tekashi69 flew to Russia despite a travel advisory from the U.S. State Department warning Americans to stay out of the communist country.

Tekashi69 saw his rap career fade into obscurity following his 2018 arrest on federal RICO and weapons charges.

He accepted a plea deal in exchange for testifying against his fellow gang members, the Nine Trey Gangsters.

Tekashi is blackballed in the music industry and lives in constant fear for his life. He is forced to travel out of the country to earn money to feed his family.
