I'm calling publicity stunt till I have proof otherwise
Like the angle where Tommy Dreamer blinded Sandman, and Sandman was going around through town for weeks with bandages over his eyes. That was back when kayfabe meant something.
I guess publicity's publicity, but ostensibly the whole thing is like "fuck you sun/scientists/humans have looked for thousands of years" so why would he fake having all the stuff that the scientists warned about? That's more dumbass than badass, kids!
And yeah, wrestling's a good example but this is pretty much like people who don't wash their hands during flu season and then cancelling because they got the flu, only they never had the flu?
I mean, if his shows weren't selling, but cancelling multiple shows seems like a bit of hit to take for a headline.
I haven't really followed hip hop since the days of the Ultramagnetic MCs and even I still recognize the name from at least a few tracks, and he's more recognizable to me as a recurring Mr. Robot character, so his career's probably not in the shitter. I guess since this video he's tweeted about having to wear special protective eyewear during the day to prevent further damage and possibly reverse some of the damage, which does kinda remind me of the old saying, "if you're going to stare at the sun during the eclipse, remember to make a lot of money with your hip hop/become President of the USA."

I glanced at the sun during the eclipse too, but wearing sunglasses (yeah, I know, insufficient protection) and only for a second or two at a time. But we only got about 61% coverage, which really wasn't enough to make all that much difference to the naked eye other than how the sun looked a little less intense than usual for 2:30 in the afternoon. It was still enough sun to drown out the moon, although I could tell that the moon was in position from the crescent shapes that pinhole gaps between leaves were casting on the ground.
You could always take the Amsler test
The problem with that test is that I do indeed have serious damage to one eye, but it has nothing to do with glancing at the sun for a second during the eclipse. (It's a corneal ulcer I've had for nearly a decade now that I most likely incurred from rubbing my eyes when there was some kind of abrasive grit in it.)
