Gucci Mane turned the Internet upside down (with laughter) today when a photo started circulating which depicted the rapper mouthing off with “Bitch I might be” to a judge when asked if he was guilty in court–but is it real?
Hollywood.com points out that the photo of the alleged outburst, which quickly went viral, is more than likely fake since Fox News wouldn’t display the word “bitch” uncensored on its banner. Good point. To add to that, the phrase was definitely pulled from Gucci’s old track “Pillz (Bitch I Might Be)” which seems to add up to one big joke.
Gucci was indicted after assaulting a soldier allegedly at a nightclub. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a soldier accused the Atlanta rapper of hitting him in the head with a champagne bottle in Atlanta last month after he just tried to be a fan. “I’m in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it OK?” the soldier reportedly said to Gucci’s security and then was attacked. The victim said he received 10 stitches following the assault.
The “Spring Breakers” star turned himself in to police on March 26 and was denied bond. He was held behind bars for two weeks while awaiting the court’s decision. Meanwhile, fans on Twitter are still having a grand ol’ time with this photo.
