Fan extorts J. Cole for a retweet.

The stuff people pull on the Internet is ridiculous, sometimes demented. Rapper J. Cole recently witness this when a fan extorted the rapper for a retweet this week, posting a message and photo of a little girl with a gun to her head … that said he would shoot her if Cole did not respond to his message.

Late Monday (June 17), the fan tweeted last night “@JColeNC retweet me and I’ll buy Born Sinner. Don’t retweet me and I’ll kill my lil sister.”

Cole did retweet the message later, and commented on it Tuesday morning (June 18), writing (@JColeNC): “Wildest sh** I ever seen on twitter.”

It’s unclear if the gun is real, or where the fan lives, but he later downplayed the message, claiming the firearm was a BBgun.

SMH… seriously people? For a retweet?
