Wiz Khalifa's home became the target of a daring burglary while the esteemed Taylor Gang leader was away on tour, leaving fans and the rapper himself stunned and concerned.
In a shocking revelation on Twitter last Sunday night (July 23), Wiz disclosed that not one, not two, but three audacious burglars attempted to infiltrate his residence while he was captivating the audience at Clarkston, Michigan's renowned Pine Knob Music Theatre. “3 n-ggas wit Pooh shiesty masks tried to run in my crib while i was on stage,” Wiz khalifa wrote.

The incident occurred during his highly anticipated High School Reunion Tour, where he was sharing the stage with the legendary Snoop Dogg, making it an even more distressing event for the celebrated artist and his loyal fans.
In a tweet that quickly garnered widespread attention, Wiz described the perpetrators as individuals donning "Pooh shiesty masks," a reference to the notorious black ski masks that have gained notoriety due to their association with criminal activities. The choice of these masks by the burglars has raised eyebrows, highlighting the escalating trend of using them in criminal endeavors.
As the news unfolded, fans and the media eagerly awaited further details about the attempted home invasion, yet Wiz has remained tight-lipped, leaving everyone to wonder if the culprits managed to make off with any of his prized possessions.
The uncertainty has sparked an outpouring of support and concern from his devoted followers, hoping that he and his loved ones are safe and unharmed.
Interestingly, this incident brings attention to a broader issue surrounding the use of ski masks, not just in Wiz Khalifa's unfortunate situation but also in other regions.
Philadelphia, for instance, took a decisive step in May by implementing an ordinance that prohibits the wearing of "Shiesty masks" on SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) buses, trains, and stations.
The measure came in response to a tragic event where a 15-year-old student lost their life on a SEPTA bus due to an assailant wearing one of these masks. This devastating incident has led authorities to address the seriousness of the matter, with SEPTA Transit Police Chief Charles Lawson candidly expressing concerns over the growing prevalence of full-head coverings, even during sweltering 80-degree weather.
The Chief firmly stated that there is no legitimate reason, pandemic notwithstanding, to don such masks in public.
