No, Soldier Kidd Did NOT Tweet That He Shot & Killed XXXTentacion

“Did Soldier Kidd tweet that he shot and killed XXXTentacion?” is a question that many fans of the slain rapper are asking after a screenshot of tweet surfaced from an account purporting to be Soldier Kidd yesterday.

Social media has been filled with rumors that South Florida rappers Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo were responsible for XXXTentacion’s shooting death, but both have denied having any involvement.

Now internet sleuths have reportedly uncovered tweets that many believe were sent out by Soldier Kidd on a now-deleted Twitter account with the username @SniperGangRed.

“Bruh I really just shot XXXtentacion… I’m finna go viral,” read one tweet. An earlier post shows a man pointing a gun at the camera.

However, there is no evidence that the account ever belonged to Soldier Kidd, as he has his own active Twitter account with the handle @soldier_kidd. The @SniperGangRed account, in fact, belonged to someone who doesn’t even live in Florida. Check out a screenshot of the tweets below:

In one tweet, @SniperGangRed says along with a photo of himself with blunts in his mouth, “Finna smoke these blunts like I smoked X … goodnight twitter.”

The account has since been deleted from Twitter, but before @nSniperGangRed took it offline, he tweeted that he wasn’t Soldier Kidd and posted a photo of himself for proof. You can see the cached version of those tweets for yourself here.

Apparently, whoever was running the @SniperGangRed page was just a so-called “clout chaser,” or, in other words, someone trying to get famous off an actual famous person’s name. He (or someone else) has since started posting on another account under the name @SniperGangRedd, which only has one tweet (below) but has been active since April 2013. The account’s bio has the URL “just-for-clout.com” and the location says “Deerfield Beach, Florida.”

Unsurprisingly, that hasn’t stopped folks from accusing Soldier Kidd of posting the tweets, saying that the @SniperGangRed is a dummy account for Soldier Kidd, who is using fake photos of someone else. I’m not entirely sure why someone would “joke” about murdering someone, but we do live in a strange world.

After XXXTentacion was officially pronounced dead, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office released a description of the suspects and the shooting, which read in part: “At least one of the suspects fired a gun striking [XXXTentacion]. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-colored SUV. Investigators say it appears to be a possible robbery.”

According to The Blast, police say the suspects were “two black males, both wearing purple hoodies with long sleeves” and “the shooter allegedly wore a red mask.”

Soldier Kidd and Soldier JoJo posted a number of photos and videos on social media on Monday, some of which included a red mask seemingly matching police’s description of the mask XXXTentacion’s shooter(s) wore.

Also, a “Boomerang” photo posted on Soldier Kidd’s Instagram story showed that he had picked up food from Hook Fish and Chicken, a popular restaurant in Deerfield Beach, about three miles (a 7-minute drive, according to Google Maps) from RIVA Motorsports, where XXXTentacion was gunned down. The timestamp on the post just so happened to be just one hour before XXXTentacion was shot.

After the murder allegations started gaining traction on social media, Soldier Kidd went on Instagram Live (above) to clear his name and also posted a video (below) to his account saying that he had nothing to do with XXXTentacion’s death and that he didn’t even know the rapper.

So far, investigators into XXXTentacion’s shooting death have no clear motive and no arrests have been made.

Police have asked anyone with information to contact homicide detectives Walt Foster or John Curcio at 954-321-4210 or you can call Crime Stoppers with tips anonymously at 954-493-TIPS. Police have also said they’re offering a $3,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.

Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo Claim Innocence in XXXTentacion Shooting Death

Two rappers from Miami—Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo—have been accused of being involved in the shooting death of XXXTentacion, but they’re both are saying they’re 100% innocent and had nothing to do with XXX’s murder.

After the shooting death of XXXTentacion, internet sleuths went to work to find out who was responsible. Florida officials are still looking for a motive and the suspected shooters, leaving speculation to run rampant on the internet.

Shortly after XXX was pronounced dead, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office released the following description of the suspects: “At least one of the suspects fired a gun striking [XXXTentacion]. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-colored SUV. Investigators say it appears to be a possible robbery.” According to TMZ, police said the suspects were “black males wearing hoodies” and the “shooter was wearing a red mask.”

Earlier today, just hours before XXXTentacion was shot and killed, Soldier Kidd and Soldier JoJo posted this photo on Instagram, along with a caption including what many believe are threats against XXXTentacion:

“Triple X but we banging like we BD @soldier.jojo ON THE X,” reads the caption, which also includes a target emoji. If you look closely at the photo, you’ll notice a red mask (similar to the police’s description) sitting on the headrest of the car’s seat.

Also, a “Boomerang” photo posted on Soldier Kidd’s Instagram Live showed that he had picked up food from Hook Fish and Chicken, a restaurant in Deerfield, Florida, not too far from where XXXTentacion was killed. If you pause the moving photo, you can clearly see a gun sitting in his lap, along with a plate of food.

Soldier Jojo also posted a picture to his IG story with a seemingly identical red mask. The picture, which shows a timestamp of June 2nd, shows Jojo crouched beside a car with the red mask on top of his head and extending his middle finger toward the ground. Oddly enough, the image also has the letters “XXX” in red type. Another photo shows him posing in an undisclosed parking garage with Soldier Kidd.

Fans of XXXTentacion were quick to jump to conclusions and accused Soldier Kidd and Jojo of being behind XXX’s death, but both Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo are apparently a part of a group/rap collective called “XXX.” It’s not clear whether there’s any connection between the group and XXXTentacion or if it’s just pure coincidence.

After rumors emerged that Soldier Kidd and Soldier Jojo were responsible for XXXTentacion’s shooting death, Soldier Kidd jumped on Instagram live to clear his name. He denied having anything to do with XXX’s death, saying that he was at his house “all day popping Xanax and sh** like that.”

Soldier Kidd also posted the following video on Instagram, saying that he didn’t even know XXXTentacion.

“I seen a lot comments on social media saying I had something to do with XXXTentacion’s passing,” Soldier Kidd said in the video. “We all got love for Florida. I got love for Broward [County]. I ain’t even know who the man was, you feel me? We out here handling business, we out here getting money, we don’t got no time for none of this sh** that’s going on.”

Soldier Kidd also offered his condolences to XXXTentacion’s family before closing his video out by reiterating that he “had nothing to do with” XXX’s murder.

For his part, Soldier Jojo uploaded a video on his own page also denying any involvement in XXXTentacion’s murder.

For what it’s worth, police believe the shooting was the result of a robbery, and detectives are reportedly offering a $3,000 award for any information that leads to an arrest.
