Lil Uzi Vert changes pronouns to “them/them”
Lil Uzi Vert is making a change as they gear up for a new project.
On Sunday, fans noticed that the Philadelphia rapper updated his Instagram bio to display the pronouns “they/them” instead of the “he/him” that was previously shown to their 16 million followers.
Gender pronouns are used to recognize a person’s gender identity. In May 2021, Instagram added the ability for users to add up to four pronouns to their profiles, including he/him, she/her, or gender-neutral pronouns such as them/them.
Uzi’s pronouns drew a mixed reaction on social media. “lil uzi is using them/them pronouns now you’ll see a whole wave of young men being more respectful of fr pronouns thanks uzi,” one fan commented, while another user addressed allegations of past abuse of Uzi: “lil uzi fans will put up with abuse, but PRONOUNS ARE WHERE THEY DRAW THE LINE.

This comes just days after the release of Uzi’s new song “Space Cadet”, the first offering from their upcoming Red White EP, which will arrive before the long-awaited P!NK album.
Meanwhile, Uzi’s relationship with City Girls’ JT is still going strong. Uzi brought their “wife” on stage at Yo Gotti’s Birthday Bash concert at FedExForum in Memphis on Friday, where she performed her verse to Moneybagg Yo’s “Said Sum (Remix)”.
“I’m doing this for my man. I love you, baby,” JT said before Uzi told the crowd, “So as y’all can see what I’m dealing with. I’m about to go home. I will see you later.
