In a now-deleted tweet, Puth wrote that "if 6ix9ine gets out and is able to make another record i'll produce it for free."

It's unclear what exactly prompted the tweet itself. Needless to say though, fans were not pleased with Puth's apparent co-sign of the rapper and some have been asking for an explanation or an apology.

However, the vast majority of reactions online are far more critical.

Charlie Puth fetishized Rihanna, victim blamed Kesha, supported Dr. Luke openly, dissed Selena Gomez just because she refused to have sex with him and now this.

6ix9ine is currently in federal custody after pleading guilty to federal racketeering and firearms charges. He potentially faces 32 years to life. Previously, 6ix9ine was also sentenced to four years of probation for the use of a child in a sexual performance.
Puth has yet to respond to the backlash.
