Previously, it was revealed that Gunna was denied bond for a third time, with the judge arguing concerns over witness intimidation. The denial happened after a co-defendant said they would “whack” someone on behalf of the rapper, with Gunna’s legal team arguing there’s “no evidence” to support the prosecutors’ claims. Now, Kim Kardashian has spoken on Gunna’s situation, bringing light to his circumstances while calling for his release.

Via Instagram, Kardashian said, “Imagine sitting in a jail cell for 155 days with no bond when the only evidence against you is a ticket for an unrelated window tint and someone saying you weren’t in a gang.” The social media personality and activist then broke down the facts of the case in another portion of her Instagram story. One of the points focused on witness intimidation, with Kardashian noting not one person has said Gunna threatened them or had anyone else threatened.

Kim K then pointed out that there’s no evidence connecting Gunna to a single crime and that although his trial is in January, it may be continued. This means Gunna may be in jail even longer. Atlanta-based station WSB-TV 2 has reports that Gunna and a group of at least 20 other people were “accused of conspiring to associate together and with others for the common purposes of illegally obtaining money and property through a pattern of racketeering activity and conducting and participating in the enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity.”

Kim tweeted out the hashtag #FreeGunna on Thursday night (October 13) after the news was revealed. She included a lengthy statement about Gunna‘s case.

“Imagine sitting in a jail cell for 155 days with no bond when the only evidence against you is a ticket for an unrelated window tint and someone saying you weren’t in a gang. That’s where my friend Sergio finds himself today after having his bond denied for the third time despite there being zero evidence that he committed a crime. Earlier this year I had the pleasure of meeting Sergio aka Gunna. He appreciated my interest in criminal justice reform and asked me to take a look at his cousin’s case. Since his incarceration, I have worked with his legal team and the facts of his case are yet another example of why the ‘justice system’ is any thing but just,” Kim began her statement.

She continued, “Some of these facts include: prosecutors alleged witness intimidation yet not a single person has said he threatened them or had anyone else threaten them; prosecutors alleged he’d had a nurse sneak him drugs yet the nurse says this is untrue and there is zero evidence it happened; prosecutors alleged he was in a gang based on a witnesses testimony but when you read that testimony it says specifically that he is not in a gang and the witness doesn’t really know him and the interview is 3 years old.”

“Even though there is no evidence tying him to a single crime, or showing that he is a risk to the community, Sergio had his bond denied once again today. His trial is set for January but will likely be continued meaning he will sit in jail even longer. Sergio deserves better and we all should demand better,” Kim concluded.
