Earlier this week, Joey Bada$$ took to Twitter, bragging that he was staring at the Great American Solar Eclipse with the naked eye, without protective glasses.

After this, reports came in that he was forced to cancel three stops on Logic’s “Everybody’s Tour”, citing “unforeseen circumstances” and sparking rumors that he severely damaged his eyes from the eclipse.

Well, the internet was talking, so Hot 97 gave Joey a call on “Ebro in the Morning” to clarify the rumors. “I’m legally blind,” he joked, before later confirming that it was a joke. “I’m OK, guys.

Despite the admission, Joey decided to troll fans on Instagram anyway, posting fake updates about his eyes on Instagram.

“Doc said I gotta keep these on in the daytime now,” Joey wrote in one post, while wearing a pair of glasses. “A lil annoying but they’re pretty fire.”

In another, he let em know its all a joke. “Yep, haha, jokes is on me. It is true. I can now see the future. In fact, I am now legally blind… to the bullsh*t,” he concluded
