In a now-deleted Instagram post, Sara Molina mocked the rapper’s pleas for leniency.
On Wednesday, New York Southern District Judge Paul Engelmayer sentenced Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine to 24 months in prison. In the wake of the sentence, social media users reacted to the ruling. Among those following the trial was the mother of 6ix9ine’s daughter Sara Molina.
Molina posted her reactions in an Instagram story but later deleted the posts. Screenshots quickly surfaced on social media. Molina later joined TMZ Live to clarify her stance.

According to Matthew Lee of Inner City Press, 6ix9ine mentioned his daughter, as well as other children who looked up to him as a public figure in his closing arguments to the judge. “I failed these kids,” he said, “the millions of kids, my own kids I haven’t spoken to, the whole time incarcerated.” Judge Engelmayer included 6ix9ine’s daughter in his rebuttal, saying she had “nothing to do” with 6ix9ine’s decisions. Molina highlighted that portion of the quote in her story.
Judge Engelmayer: But for your cooperation, you would get a very long sentence. When you began to cooperate in November 2018, some incidents the government didn’t know about. But it knew about a lot. The April 3 robbery. The two April 18 shooting.

In the wake of their split, Molina says 6ix9ine physically assaulted her on multiple occasions. In a February 2019 interview with The Daily Beast, she said the first incident was prompted by 6ix9ine’s assumption that his former manager was romantically pursuing her.
6ix9ine received a 24-month sentence, with 13 months already served. Additionally, Tekashi will serve five years of supervised release. He will also have to submit 300 hours of community service and pay a $35,000 fine upon his release.
