Now that the coronavirus pandemic is finally starting to die down, we can start counting all the celebrities and personalities in the entertainment industry who have tried to get out of prison because of the pandemic.
In case you missed it, stars such as R. Kelly, Bill Cosby, Tekashi 6ix9ine, and even former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen have asked for early release due to fear of COVID-19.
Although judges generally deny their release request, Tekashi 6ix9ine, however, was the one who was allowed to serve the remainder of his sentence in house arrest. Judge Denies Martin Shkreli’s Request For Prison Release To Find COVID-19 Vaccine
Another popular figure who calls for early release is Martin Shkreli, a man who made himself known as an “evil genius” who found himself behind bars on charges of security fraud. Hot New Hip Hop reported this week that even though Martin has placed himself in a penitentiary, he still manages to get media attention.
For example, Shkreli claimed that he had an unprecedented diss-track from Drake to Pusha-T; he said he was still running his business behind bars, and now he thinks he can help create a cure for coronavirus. Martin asked a judge to allow him to leave to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
