6ix9ine, despite pleading guilty to one felony count of use of a child in a sexual performance, continues to rise in popularity. The highly controversial rapper even has a song with Nicki Minaj, "FEFE," currently in the Billboard Hot 100's top ten, but understandably, not everyone is a fan. ABC's WFTV9 reports that 6ix9ine's forthcoming show at the CFE Arena on the University of Central Florida campus on Sept. 22 will be met with protests.
Student Noemi Teutsch is helping to organize the protests and says that so far, any effort to have the concert canceled has failed. "People are just as outraged as I am, if not more," she explained. "Universities are supposed to be upholding certain moral standards and certain values. I just can't believe someone like this would be considered on a university campus."
Teutsch has launched a petition hoping to receive support from UCF to cancel the show, which has so far amassed over 5,000 signatures. "As far as I'm concerned, they are endorsing and they are condoning his behavior because they're allowing him to come on campus to perform," she added. "I honestly think it's ridiculous. It makes no sense whatsoever. Because at some point, you have to draw the line somewhere."
6ix9ine will be sentenced on Oct. 1, only nine days after the planned date for the show on the UCF campus.
