MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - As a college student, Ashely lives on a pretty tight budget, but she never imagined she'd be living out of her car one day because she's too scared to go home. Nor did she expect this to be possibly the fault of Chief Keef the rapper.
"It’s really not safe to be in the neighborhood anymore. There's a lot of suspicious activity going on and it’s not in our best interest to put ourselves in harm’s way,” she said.
On Friday, Chief Keef tweeted out the address of the house Ashley rents with two roommates in north Minneapolis, telling his 1.11 million followers to "throw eggs and sh-- in a bag and rocks and all that at this address Ima repost it." By that afternoon, so many people showed up to take selfies and videos, which Chief Keef promised to retweet, Minneapolis police had to park squad cars in front and back of the house until the commotion died down.
"There are rumors about previous tenants, someone talking smack about him during a video game,” she said.
Ashley's next-door neighbor says he was robbed at gunpoint by two men looking for the home's occupants in his yard on Sunday morning and he believes they were prompted by Chief Keef's beef on social media.
"It’s heavier than just their little tweets someone types with their hands. You got all these knuckleheads running around looking for their five second of fame,” the neighbor, who asked not to be identified, said.
"For someone to be so influential over a million followers, it saddens me that you would take time out of our day to screw up someone else’s life, and not even making sure it's the person you want to screw with,” Ashley said.
