AceShowbiz - Lil Uzi Vert has debuted new tattoos on his forehead and tongue. However, some people were not happy to see the fresh ink since they fueled controversy around the MC being a "Satanist."
The 27-year-old showed off his new ink in a video surfacing online. The first one is some sort of tribal design, which covers his forehead where his $24 million pink diamond once was. The second tat, meanwhile, is an upside-down cross.
Unimpressed by the tattoos, fans didn't hold back from offering their two cents. "I can't listen to Lil Uzi's music no more he on some weirdo s**t," one person wrote on Sunday, April 9, while another argued, "I am God's warrior, I will beat him up if he on some devil or anti God energy. This is disturbing."
A different user tweeted," Lil Uzi Vert = Lu Ci Fer. He's a devout Satanist." The other commented, "It's getting corny now uzi, we get it u love satan." Someone else then chimed in, "deez rappers sold their soulds. for quick fame. Lil Uzi is possesed lol. will be blocking most rap music in my life from now on. except 50 cent."
Uzi came under fire in early March after suggesting on his song that he has converted his girlfriend JT to Satanism. At that time, he spat, "I make a City Girl believe in Satan."
Uzi, however, declared that JT had no problem with it because it's not literal. When speaking to TMZ, he claimed the lyric wasn't a reference to satanism so people must not take it too seriously. "Basically, I make a girl do whatever I say so," he said.
Asked how the City Girls member felt about the line, the "Just Wanna Rock" spitter said, "She really didn't think much of it." He also divulged that she was in the studio when he created the song, saying, "She knows what I really mean."
