Lanez grins as he seems to be wearing a similar pink blazer and white turtle neck outfit like the one he wore to trial.
Online, many users claim to believe it’s his mugshot because of his fresh edge-up and outfit choice. The tweets and comments rapidly grew to make the post viral and people were quick to spew jokes about his happy demeanor.
“Bro tryin so hard to smile behind that smile is a man scared asf going to one of the worst prisons in the USA,” one tweet read.
“LA Prisons ain’t no joke, lol. The gang politics in there is STRICTTT,” another person wrote.
I don’t know if he’s going to jail, or if he just started second grade. That’s the kind of picture your mom stole the proof from the school and put it in a picture album.

Lanez was convicted last month for his involvement in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting case.
According to MSN, Lanez was found guilty on felony charges of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, possessing a concealed, unregistered firearm and negligent discharge of a firearm.

Tory was supposed to be sentenced on Jan. 27 but will reportedly be sentenced on Feb. 28 by Judge David Herriford.
The decision to push back his sentencing comes after he hired new layers. Attorneys David Kenner and Matthew Barhoma replaced George Mgdesyan and Shawn Holley following Lanez’s guilty verdict.
In a month, a decision will be made and it’s possible that Lanez could face a 22-sentence.
