In response to the recent controversy surrounding her brother, Gunna and his alleged snitching on Young Thug, singer-rapper Dana Williams has come out and taken a strong stand in defense of him.
Young Thug's sister, Dolly White, took to social media to set the record straight and show her support for Gunna." Please don't call my brother a snitch," she wrote on Twitter. "He's not one. He doesn't snitch! He has never said anything about anyone or done anything of the sort." Her tweet was met with support from many fans, who agreed that Gunna did not deserve to be labelled a snitch. Gunna has yet to comment on the situation publicly, but it is clear that his peers and loyal followers are standing by him.
On Wednesday (December 14), Gunna reached a plea deal which allowed for his release from jail.
Yet, some in public have accused him of snitching on Young Thug's behalf to secure this agreement.
In response, Young Thug's sister has come out publicly and requested that folks show empathy towards Gunna by ceasing any slanderous remarks or insinuations about him being a "snitch".
"Can you all please stop saying then people write it and this and that? It's not making anybody better or nothing good," Thug's sister Dolly White said. "Nothing that's going on is helping my brother. So can you all please stop that? If you all love Gunna, then you all give him support. Why the fuck you all over there you all tripping. It be the internet for me."
Thug's sister further clarified that, as per a legally binding agreement, they were instructed not to interact in any way on social media between the two parties.
"No, I haven't posted him because I was just told that nobody is really supposed to have communications with each other right now," she said. "I don't want to mess up his shit, so why would I go and post him."
On Wednesday (December 14), Gunna appeared for a virtual hearing in court and pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge. His plea allowed him to be released from custody shortly afterwards.
The "Pushin P" rapper and his legal team decided to enter an Alford plea, where he pled guilty to one charge to preserve his liberty.
Gunna was given a five-year sentence, with one year to be served directly behind bars. He will complete the remainder of his four-year suspended jail time through 500 hours of community service.
"While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way," Gunna told WSB-TV in a statement.
"My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and 'glorified' urban life in the Black community."
Steve Sadow, the legal counsel of Gunna, released an official statement clarifying that his client refused to collaborate with the authorities. "Gunna did not snitch to get out of jail. He has said nothing and is not cooperating," he wrote.
On Thursday (December 15), Young Thug returned to the courtroom for a pre-trial hearing, but he is set for trial in January. Moreover, earlier this week, Thugger was charged with additional offences outside his RICO case.
Gunna’s attorney, Steve Sadow, also released a statement explaining that his client didn’t cooperate with authorities. “Gunna did not snitch to get out of jail. He has said nothing and is not cooperating,” he wrote.
In May, Thug was apprehended alongside Gunna and 26 other individuals in connection with criminal racketeering charges associated with the infamous Young Slime Life street gang. The allegations asserted that he had been racing a motor vehicle at speeds of up to 120 mph on Interstate 85, which consequently led him to be charged with misdemeanours, including reckless driving and speeding.
