Lil Uzi Vert's recent set at Wireless Festival was going great until a fan was hit by a cell phone he reportedly threw into the crowd. Now, people with knowledge of the situation are coming to the rapper's defense after the fan showed off bloody images of her injuries.
According to a report XXL published on Monday, July 4, a source close to the situation confirmed that Lil Uzi Vert did not "intentionally" throw the cell phone at the fan. The Eternal Atake rapper had received an influx of cell phones from fans who were close to the stage, and was only trying to get them out of his way so that he could continue his performance.
"During Uzi’s set at Wireless Fest, fans threw multiple cellphones onto the stage and inadvertently struck him," the source said. "He merely attempted to clear the phones from the stage, avoid slipping and safely continue his performance—he never intentionally directed it at a specific individual."
In the video, we can see Uzi pick up the phone and chuck it in the air during his performance of "Money Longer" at Wireless Festival on Friday, July 1. His statement was issued not long after videos of Uzi began to make the rounds on social media. In a TikTok video, the woman who was hit with the phone, who goes by Drilla G, revealed the bloody aftermath of her injuries. She shows her blood-soaked area where she was hit on her head and provides video of her being escorted away from the stage. Drilla G explained what happened when she was hit and said there was "some damaged caused" but didn't list the extent of her injuries.
