Lil Uzi Vert Accidentally Injures Wireless Festival Attendee After Throwing Phone
During Wireless Festival last weekend, which took place on July 1, Lil Uzi Vert hurled a fan’s cellphone into the massive crowd. This was understandable as multiple attendees threw their phones on stage toward Uzi upon his entrance. We’ve seen many concert fanatics attempt this new trend hoping for a featured act to create a moment on social media. Unfortunately, the phone Uzi threw in the crowd struck a fan in the face and caused a pretty bad injury. The fan who goes by the name “Drilla G” shared a video on her TikTok page of what happened:

Drilla G’s Response Video Following The Injury
She gave tons of insight on the unfortunate incident in a follow-up Tok Tok video. While Uzi didn’t mean to injure anyone, it probably wasn’t the best idea for him to toss the phone into the crowd. Drilla G explained that it was near impossible to dodge the phone because of how densely packed the crowd was. Additionally, there isn’t any information that’s come out about the severity of her head injury yet. The owner of the phone Uzi threw off stage did get the phone back apparently, “Yes, there was some damage caused, but the guy got his phone back and everything is being dealt with.” Hopefully, Drilla G is doing okay and is in a decent enough condition following the situation.

The Dangers Of Attending Shows In 2022
It seems as though headlines like these keep appearing in recent years since the Pandemic regulations for live shows lightened. During a performance yesterday, July 5, Travis Scott stopped fans from endangering themselves as they climbed ladders, trusses, etc. It’s refreshing seeing Travis take initiative and control his crowd better than he did during his festival disaster last year. With this new information surrounding Uzi’s performance, how will live shows be moving forward? Read more of FM Hip-Hop’s featured articles today.
