XXXTentacion to Host Anti-Rape Event at 2017 Art Basel in Miami
XXXTentacion has announced that he'll host an anti-rape event during this year's Art Basel in Miami.
The Florida rapper says the event will encourage rape victims and allow them to share their stories and receive support in a safe space.
"At Art Basel this month, I will be hosting an anti-rape event where basically rape victims can come to this event and tell their stories and help others, and support others who have been through a similar instance," he said in a video posted to social media. "I ask that if you come to the event you come bearing no type of negative energy and you make sure you come with the full support in your heart to those that have experienced any sort of post-traumatic experience or event."
While no further specifics about the event were shared, Art Basel is scheduled to take place in Miami Dec. 7-10.
The rapper is set to go on trial for domestic abuse in December but as of late has seemed to be trying to clean up his image. Back in October, the Florida rapper announced that he's donating $100,000 to women's rights organizations.
"I want to apologize to every single woman that I've ever disrespected or made feel violated, by me, saying I am 'insensitive'," he wrote in an IG story. "I would never intentionally try to make a woman feel uncomfortable or in danger by my own conscious will so in order to show progress in my life and show remorse for my remark to the people that support me I want to let you know, that I will be donating over 100 thousand dollars, to domestic violence prevention programs!"
XXXTentacioin will begin trial on Dec. 11. Take a look at his announcement below.
