XXXTentacion is being remembered on the one year anniversary of being gunned down while shopping for motorcycles … by a bunch of fans who have flooded to his gravesite.
Waves of people made their way to the Gardens of Boca Raton Memorial Park on Tuesday … where XXX — real name Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy — was buried. There’s a massive mausoleum there erected in the rapper’s honor.
TMZ reports that immediate family members also arrived and went inside the mausoleum and closed the doors behind them. The public was not let inside the structure for the private moment.
As was reported … XXX was shot dead exactly 1 year ago when 2 men wearing hoodies rolled up on XXX at a motorcycle dealership in Pompano Beach, FL and opened fire. The deadly shooting was caught on video.
The suspects — who made off with a Louis Vuitton bag and $50k in cash — are now awaiting trial.
X’s girlfriend gave birth to the rapper’s son 7 months after his death. He chose the name for his firstborn son — Gekyume Onfroy, who was born 3 days after what would have been the rapper’s 21st bday.
BTW … X’s official Instagram account just posted a video announcing that a documentary on the rapper has been in the works and is coming soon. Check it out.

Bhad Bhabie has nothin’ but her love of McDonald’s and Twitter to thank for getting her fired from a show she was set to play in the Middle East … but this ain’t even her fault.
The young rapper responded to a tweet last week that had tagged her in between a bunch of Arabic text, which she playfully answered by saying … “why yes, I do like McDonald’s fries. They be tasting good as f*** sometimes. I appreciate u asking bich. Much love.”
Standard Bhad Bhabie banter, right? WRONG!!! … according to the Jordanian promoters who canceled her upcoming show there, anyway. They said the Bhad Bhabie concert for July 8th was being axed for her insensitive comment, which they considered a breach of contract.
Turns out, the tweeter was a prominent Palestinian marathon runner who was actually saying that would-be ticketholders in Jordan should boycott BB ’cause he believes she supports Israel. Unclear what he was basing that on, but that’s what he tweeted.
Now, according to TMZ the whole thing is a major overreaction on the part of the promoters, because the kid didn’t even know what the hell she was reading.
Bhabie hasn’t taken a stance on, or pledged allegiance to either side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
To that point, she has a Tel Aviv gig scheduled for the day after her now-canceled Jordan show.
Her team doesn’t really get why she was accused of being pro-Israel, or why the promoters felt her jokey tweet was anything but that — since it seems pretty clear she had no clue what the initial tweet meant.
