Kevin Gates has been flying under the radar as of late, but he became a trending Twitter topic on Sunday (May 16) after a clip of Ugandan singer Vinka went viral.
May 15, 2021 Not long after the clip made the rounds, comparisons between Kevin Gates and Vinkas conduct began popping up left and right on Twitter. In October 2016, Gates was found guilty of batteryin Polk County, Florida for kicking a female fan during a Lakeland concert the previous year. According to Gates, the woman was attempting to paw at his penis, which he didnt appreciate. Nonetheless, a judge sentenced Gates to 180 daysin Polk County jail, with credit for any time served, and fines and court costs. He was convicted by a jury of six women after one day of testimony. The alleged victim, Miranda Dixon, admitted to tugging on Gates pants during the Rumors Night Club concert in August 2015 but maintained in court, I was trying to get his attention for my friend. Wasn't necessary for Kevin Gates to kick a female fan for touching him during his performance.
