Lil Uzi Vert was seen chucking someone's cell phone into the crowd when he performed at London’s Wireless Festival on Friday, July 1.
Later, a clip surfaced that showed a woman with a bloody head injury, which she says is from the phone hitting her. She gave a few details about the incident on video.

"So as some of you guys may know, there is a video of Lil Uzi Vert throwing a phone into the Wireless crowd 2022 on Friday,” the woman stated. “I am sadly that chick that got their head smashed in by the phone. There was someone else but I don’t really want to mention him in case it is not permitted, but yes, there was some damage caused. But the guy got his phone back and everything is being dealt with.”
“For those who are asking why I didn’t move out the way, if you have been to Wireless Festival before, you will know how packed the crowd is. There is no space to move, and even if there was, I think the reaction time with the phone landing wouldn’t have been enough to actually move out the way in time. And even if I did, it would have hit someone either way. It wouldn’t have hit the floor first, it was head to head.”
A source later gave a statement to XXL and said Vert didn't throw the phone at anyone specific, he was just trying to clear the stage after phones were thrown at him.
