NBA YoungBoy is being dragged online after a photograph of him with a male fan began making the rounds — in it, their arms seem to be intertwined.
The photo was shared by a Twitter user named @1kWalter on Saturday (February 10) and it immediately began turning heads.
“Why I just ran into nba yb and mabu at Target,” he wrote with a photo of himself with each rapper. In the picture with the Baton Rouge native, the two can be seen standing next to each other with their arms touching.
“LMAO not they tryna slick hold hands,” one person wrote with laughing emojis under a repost by The Neighborhood Talk, while another added: “Why the arms doin criss cross apple sauce?”
When one Twitter user responded to the original poster directly and said, “yall locking arms is sending me,” he wrote back: “Talk to him bout it, not me. Hugging n holding my hand u think ima be fruity.”
He’s since made his Twitter page private, though he later shared the image to Instagram with the caption: “Crying on the net bout a pic twisting the narrative, sounds like a bunch of insecure bums who gets no money.”
Earlier this month, NBA YoungBoy left fans concerned for his wellbeing after posting a photo of himself in which he appeared to have overdosed on drugs.
In the image, the Louisiana rapper could be seen lying on the floor next to a bottle of prescription pills and a Styrofoam cup full of what appeared to be lean. In the caption, he wrote:“& that’s why I don’t pick up my phone when it ring”
The alarming photo sparked immediate concerns from his followers, with many flocking to the comments section to express their worries about his health.
“Please get help,” one person wrote, while another said: “yb i love you and if you crash out or die i’ll cry please stop it.”
Others, assuming the photo was staged, criticized him for sharing such a troubling image considering the number of rappers who have died from drugs in recent years.
“Who set up the pic tho .. y’all wild. he actually got down on the floor and said …’take my pic, wit all these pills around me’. N-ggahs wanna be depressed and moody for likes,” a user replied.
This isn’t the first time the 24-year-old has left fans worried about his wellbeing. Last summer, he made a post via his pet cat’s Instagram page about his “scary” drug use and mental state. Despite that, the father-of-11 recently said that he isn’t really a heavy drug user despite and that he recently spent time in rehab.
