A judge has ordered rapper Meek Mill to attend etiquette classes and notify his probation officer before he takes any trips outside of Pennsylvania.

Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley on Friday told the rapper, whose real name is Robert Williams, he must complete the classes before Aug. 4

The judge first told him to take the classes in May, after, she says, messages he posted on Twitter prompted some of his 2.5 million followers to send threats to her, the assistant district attorney, and Mill's probation officer.

"He has to watch what he puts on social media. It can affect his freedom," said the assistant DA at a recent probation status hearing.

The orders came at a probation violation hearing for Williams, who is on probation for a 2008 gun and drug conviction for which he was sentenced to 11 to 23 months in prison. He served eight months in jail and began five years of probation in the fall of 2009.
