Tupac Shakur, a woman from Flordia, has been charged and arrested for hitting a man with a baseball bat.
Yeah, we should stop giving kids the same names as famous people, especially someone who was on the level of Tupac.
What the woman did is actually pretty brutal, so we won’t go into too much detail, but it involves an elderly man sitting outside a hospital and a baseball bat.
New York Post reports that the man managed to wrangle the bat away from Tupac before running inside the hospital. When inside, Tupac tried to claim she was the one being attacked with the bat. The cops did not believe her.
People on Twitter reacting to the news had the same questions as us. Why did the parents name her that, and how could you dishonour that legendary name?
“Her parents need to be arrested for naming her that,” said one tweet.
“Tupac would be disappointed in her,” said another.
“If Tupac was alive he would not like that sh*t,” said one more.
The incident comes on almost exactly the same date as the transcendent rapper died - September 13th, 1996.
Since that date, a conspiracy that the rapper is still alive has endured the test of time and has become much more prominent in the age of the internet.
NME reported back in 2011 that PBS posted a (now deleted) news story saying that “prominent rapper Tupac has been found alive and well in a small resort in New Zealand, locals report.”
Faaar, which one of you told them you saw Tupac?
It turned out to just be some hackers trolling in the case of him living in NZ, but the theory that Pac is still alive is widespread.
