J. Cole was sent a threatening tweet from a fan.

Yesterday, hip-hop artist J. Cole released his second studio album Born Sinner. Many fans were showing their support by tweeting photos of their purchased album and congratulatory words; but one user took it way too far.

A Twitter user by the name of That Aint My Kid (@_TzC_) sent out a photo of himself pointing a gun at his younger sister stating, “@JColeNC retweet me and I’ll buy Born Sinner. Don’t retweet me and I’ll kill my lil sister.”

Not having much of a choice, J. Cole immediately retweeted and responded publically saying, “Wildest s**t I ever seen on twitter.”

After getting the retweet, the user was immediately attacked with a slew of criticism and eventually cried wolf saying it was all a joke.
