Earlier today, Rapper J. Cole got his weirdest fan tweet to date when a disturbed fan threatened to shoot his own sister if the hip hop artist refused to retweet him, even attaching a photograph of himself with his little sister at gunpoint to prove that he's not messing around.

Well, that's one way to get your point across, but let's just hope this doesn't start a bizarre trend of homicidal retweet ultimatums.
