Playboi Carti usually keeps his social media presence minimal, particularly on Instagram. However, he made a jaw-dropping upload last week that essentially showed him bearing a resemblance to a scary clown.
A few days later, he posted a similar series of photos to the platform, showing that he’s wholeheartedly embracing this new aesthetic.
From the jump, fans were divided over how they responded to the posts, as the people’s general reactions were mixed.
Diehard Carti stans also gushed over how the rapper’s posts can be seen as him ushering in a “new era” for himself.
However, not everyone was pleased, as some said Playboi Carti was going “too far.”
While on the subject, people also began debating which phase was better: Cash Carti or Vamp Carti.
People also shared several band-based jokes, with one user comparing the rapper to an Insane Clown Posse (ICP) member.
Another fan compared Playboi Carti to Ryuk from Death Note.
While the vast majority of users were cutting up over the matter, some noted that the criticism against Playboi Carti’s new look signals how Black people aren’t given the same expressive freedom as others.
