A New York tattoo artist is suing Tekashi 6ix9ine for stealing his title and for defaming his character.
In Hulu’s documentary, “69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez,” it states, “a Japanese tattoo artist named Takashi would encourage Danny’s new persona, Tekashi 69.”
The tattoo artist’s title is Takashi Matsuba. He’s primarily based in Brooklyn. In one other documentary, “Supervillain: The Making of Tekashi 6ix9ine,” Tekashi mentioned that Matsuba “did heroin to create.”
Matsuba denies the rumors. He says he has by no means taken heroin in his life. He says Tekashi has ruined his picture.
“Due to the vulgarity of the imagery related to plaintiff, and of the numerous tattoos on defendant Hernandez’s physique, as proven within the movie, acquaintances and patrons of plaintiff have already requested him whether or not he’s related with defendant Hernandez,” the courtroom papers learn per Web page Six. “He isn’t.”
Matsuba is suing Tekashi and Showtime for unspecified damages. Matsuba shouldn’t be suing Hulu.
