In his Instagram Story, Lil Durk addresses the practice of shaming celebrities, especially rappers and athletes, for sporting fake jewelry. The "Broadway Girls" emcee shifts the blame from the stars to the jewelers, asserting, "Don't blame the rapper or athletes nomo. Blame the jeweler for selling them that bogus ass shit."

Durk's message follows his earlier advice to potential buyers, cautioning them about purchasing authentic pieces. He emphasized the prevalence of fake and overpriced jewelry in the market and recommended sticking to a trusted jeweler to avoid scams. "I'm telling you, y'all ass gone be pissed when the truth come out," he added.

While Lil Durk aims to guide consumers with his warnings, his collaborator Lil Baby experienced firsthand the pitfalls of purchasing jewelry. Last September, Lil Baby exposed a New York City-based jewelry retailer, Rafaello and Co., for selling him a fake Patek Philippe watch. In a video caption, Lil Baby asserted, "Ain't no such thing as a mistake when that money involved! Don't Fuccin Play Wit me Cause when I'm on that I'm on that."

Later on, Rafaello and Co. issued an apology, recognizing their lapse in researching the legitimacy of the watch. They emphasized that the error was unintentional and, to demonstrate accountability, offered Lil Baby four rings at no cost along with a complete refund.

Lil Durk's stance against shaming celebrities sheds light on the responsibility of jewelers to ensure the authenticity of the products they sell, emphasizing the need for transparency and accountability in the jewelry industry.
