Rapper XXXTentacion, 20, was shot to death during an apparent robbery on Monday outside a motorcycle shop in Florida, authorities said.

While many fans mourned online, other Twitter users were quick to bring up his legal trial that was ongoing at the time of his passing, where he was arrested for ultimately 15 charges for allegedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend.

His music was recently removed from Spotify's official playlists and recommendation features, amid a new policy targeted at "hate content and hateful conduct".
