Lil Uzi Is Unbothered by People Poking Fun at Striped Tee; Proudly Proclaims Purchase Price

Rapper Lil Uzi Vert went viral this week for wearing a pink-striped, bleached shirt that he said cost him a pretty penny.

A photo of Uzi clutching a pink Goyard bag and sporting a spiked choker circulated on social media Saturday, May 13. The top is designed by French brand Faith Connexion and can be found on Capsule by Eso’s website for $290.

But in a clip posted on Instagram, Uzi says he bought it for $2,400 after a fan compliments the unisex T-shirt.

When the image initially surfaced, reactions to the ensemble immediately poured in.

Singer Tyrese Gibson and Waka Flocka also weighed in on Instagram before deleting their remarks. 50 Cent gave his input, posting a side-by-side image of Uzi and rapper Machine Gun Kelly in the same shirt.
