Lil Uzi Vert is one of rap’s true characters. Uzi says he got his name from a crackhead. A recent viral video captured him nearly getting into a fight. Uzi would also like to have his own jetpack. You never know what to expect when it comes to Lil Uzi Vert.

The latest outrage is over a video Uzi posted on social media. The tweet in question saw Lil Uzi Vert claim that he was bleaching his skin. The fan reaction was quick and not particularly kind.

“This ain’t it , especially during black history month”

“During Black History Month?”

“On Black history month you have a black man making fun of another black man who had a skin condition that he had zero control of. N*gga you need to wise up and stop acting dumb.”

“it’s the second day of black history month.”

Many fans believe he was most likely making fun of Vybez Kartel. Either way, it was a bad look, especially given the fact that it’s Black History Month. We’ll see if Lil Uzi Vert explains his bizarre tweet.
