Tekashi69 is part of a new campaign with Romantic Depot.
Just last week, details of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s alleged abuse against his daughter’s mother, Sara Molina, were reported in an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast. His ex-girlfriend told the publication that he had previously beaten her bloody, abused her in front of their daughter, and forced her to have sex with him. The accusations are troubling and extremely difficult to imagine. With 6ix9ine currently being held behind bars as he awaits his trial, a new commercial has just surfaced for a sex shop called Romantic Depot with the rainbow-haired rapper as the star.
In the clip, Tekashi walks into the shop with his girlfriend and says that they’re ready to “spice things up.” The employee then challenges him, asking him if he knows that he should be aware of his partner’s limitations. It should be noted that at the beginning of the video, there is a disclaimer that the store does not condone any of 6ix9ine’s past activities. “I agree,” says the artist. “When I was younger I used to make a lot of stupid mistakes but I’m ready to learn more.”

The advertisement closes with Tekashi69 saying that thanks to Romantic Depot, he now knows “how to treat women with dignity and respect.” If only he would have gone shopping for toys before he met Sara Molina…
The CEO of Romantic Depot told Jezebel that it was 6ix9ine’s idea to be in the commercial. “He really insisted on being a part of this. We actually filmed him in the store, and he was really nice with the staff.” He says that Tekashi “wanted to make himself a better person by showing women that he wants to change his past behavior.”
