The order came over Sunday morning in an Instagram video, according to CBS Los Angeles.
It was filmed by Daz Dillinger, former member of Tha Dogg Pound duo.
“Yo national alert, all the Crips out there, y’all f–k Kanye up,” he said in the since-deleted clip, referring to the infamous street gang.
“Better not ever see you in concert,” the rapper added. “Better not ever see you around the LBC. Better not ever see you around California.”
Mentioning the city where West lives, Dillinger said: “Stay in Calabasas, ya hear me? ‘Cuz we got a Crip alert for Kanye…All the Crips out there — you see him, bang on his ass, f–k his ass up. ”
Dillinger posted other messages aimed at West on Sunday and Monday, but it was his threat involving the Crips that drew the most attention.
“Really? Threatening Kanye because he supports Trump?” wrote one upset IG user. “You are a disgrace & a repulsive loser. Hope he sues your pathetic ass.”
Another person said, “This isn’t the message we should be sending. We don’t wish harm on Kanye…instead if we disagree we should stop promoting/supporting him…delete this clown post.”
In response to the backlash, Dillinger — whose real name is Delmar Drew Arnaud — posted a caption Monday on IG saying: “FREEDOM OF SPEECH FUC KANYE THIS CRIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP THE REVOLUTION IS ON NOW.”
He had numerous people praise him on his stance toward West, and others ridiculing him.
