What did Ronnie Radke call Playboi Carti out for?
The lead singer of the metal band Falling In Reverse called out Playboi Carti on his Instagram stories after spotting the phrase “falling in reverse” on the rapper’s new merch.
Radke writes over a picture of Carti’s new T-shirt designs: “Bro the first shirt is a bad religion album and the second is my band. This unoriginal ass dude got 24 hours.”
He also told fans he wasn’t suing Carti but he didn’t want anyone selling his copywrited band name on merch.
