During his headlining performance at U.K.’s Wireless Festival, Lil Uzi Vert threw a phone into the crowd and it allegedly hits a woman in the head, leaving her with a bloody injury.
On Sunday (July 3), TikTok user @ccornonmycob (aka Drilla G) posted a series of videos showing the bloody aftermath of Lil Uzi Vert throwing a phone full speed into the crowd during his performance at the Wireless Festival on July 1. In the first clip, you can see the Eternal Atake artist hyping the crowd up before he performs his 2016 song “Money Longer.” As he turns around, Uzi bends down to pick up a phone and throws it high and far into the crowd.
In another panel, a series of photos are shown of the woman's bloodied head which she claims was from the phone that Lil Uzi Vert hurled into the crowd. There’s also a video of her being escorted by security, presumably to a medical facility.
A source close to the situation has issued a statement to XXL. It reads: "During Uzi’s set at Wireless Fest, fans threw multiple cellphones onto the stage and inadvertently struck him. 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."
