Later in the evening, CJ hopped back on Instagram to give his thanks for all the love and support following his scary attack:

“I’m getting so much love right now on Instagram, Facebook, text message, phone calls — everyone that’s reaching out to me with positive regards, I appreciate you. I appreciate all the love. This is something that if I would have passed away, I wouldn’t have been able to see, so it’s a very warm feeling that I get to embrace all this love, and I get to still be on this earth, which only means that God has a plan for me.”

He continued:

“I just want everybody watching to know this is not fake, this was not staged, I don’t wish this on anybody. Getting shot is not a joke, it’s not a game, especially while you’re just trying to sleep. I literally was awakened out of my sleep by two people trying to kill me. For what? I don’t know. I never did anything to anybody. I never did anything wrong to anybody.”

He concluded:

“But I’m just grateful to be here and I’mma get back, I’mma get better.”
