The internet went wild after Young Thug posted a photo of himself hooked up to what he alluded was a “Lean IV.” Several Twitter users captured Thugger’s post on Friday (December 1), which included the words, “Fuck a double cup I wanna feel it faster” plastered across it.
The liquid running through the IV was a purple tint, leading many people to jump to the conclusion that, yes, Thugger was really putting his life in jeopardy.
Considering the opioid epidemic is seemingly at its peak, fans of the Jeffery rapper weren’t impressed. Reactions ranged from shock and amazement to ridicule and doubt but Thug has yet to address whether the stunt was real or not.
As one Twitter user pointed out, it could be a new Beauty Drip treatment, which is intended to improve a person’s skin condition. Whatever’s going on, the stunt seemed to have backfired.
OK, so I think I just cracked this "young thug injecting lean" Snapchat conspiracy. Prettyy sure he's just doing a lil' beauty drip treatment. Calm down, everyone. https://t.co/Kz7aANEENa … pic.twitter.com/SrgdvDTwOZ

Young Thug really has a Lean IV drip setup in his crib and honestly I'm worried. Drugs made for Oral use shouldn't be taken Intravenously. Also who tf put this shit in for him? pic.twitter.com/Mgzv5FS5XQ
