On X, the reactions were similarly harsh. Dylan Loomer, founder of crypto prop firm Breakout Prop, said:

Your crypto grifts are as bad as the music you make. The good news is you are so bad at both you can't make money doing either. [REDACTED]

This incident emerges during a trend of declining value in celebrity-endorsed crypto projectsTokens associated with former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner (JENNER) and rappers Rich the Kid (RICH) and Iggy Azalea (MOTHER) have recently seen price drops, falling by 4.69%, 9.11%, and 14.23%, respectively, in the last 24 hours.

Adding to the frenzy, controversial internet personality Andrew Tate promoted a new Solana-based memecoin called Daddy Tate (DADDY) on June 11, which has increased by nearly 13% despite facing insider trading allegations.

The rise and fall of celebrity-backed tokens have drawn criticism from prominent figures in the crypto community. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has voiced concerns over the craze, emphasizing that financial projects should provide societal value rather than purely speculative ventures.

Overall, Lil Pump's latest stunt reflects the influence of celebrities in the crypto market, where hype often leads to declines.
