Meek Mill is catching some heat for an outfit he posted on the night of the Philadelphia 76ers 115-118 loss to the New York Knicks in the playoffs.

In the photo, he was seen wearing what looks to be Rick Owens head-to-toe. He sported a long-sleeve sheer silk t-shirt, black baggy leather shorts, and the Rick Owens Geobasket two-tone leather high top sneakers. "I’m high so I can’t relaxxxxxxx," he captioned the picture.

The outfit drew a lot of reactions from fans, who questioned the rapper's sense of style. "Philly lost twice in the same night," joked one fan. "Why he outside dressed like Saucy Santana," joked another.

Other comments focused on the timing of the outfit, which some fans suggested was a little too "zesty" with all the speculation regarding his sexuality at the moment.

In a post on his Instagram Stories, Meek responded, "The propaganda don't even want me wearing Rick lol."

The speculation regarding Meek's sexuality flared up following a lawsuit filed by Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones against Diddy, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple people. Meek wasn't named in the suit, but people have assumed he is one of the redacted names in the document because the person in question is described as "a Philadelphia rapper who dated Nicki Minaj." The part social media clung onto is a passage that claims Diddy said he engaged in sexual intercourse with "rapper [REDACTED]."

DJ Akademiks was among those to make the connection, which resulted in the two trading shots publicly on Twitter. Eventually, Meek blocked Akademiks and said he didn't want to hear anything from him anymore. Akademiks has made several homophobic comments about rappers this year, including Lil Baby after he appeared to have painted nails in a music video.

Meek has denied the speculation regarding his sexuality. "One love to the gay people but that juicy p#%sy do it for meeeeee😁 I done ran red lights to get that feeling yall weird on here like devils lol," he tweeted back in February. Other rappers such as Young Thug have faced similar speculation for their fashion choices in the past, so this is nothing new for hip-hop, unfortunately.
