Lil Nas X hit back at a small number of people on Twitter who accused him of faking his sexuality for fame—with the perfect response.

In now-deleted posts, Nas replied: “y’all love saying i’m being gay for success but can’t name 5 successful gay male artists in the last 10 years to save your life,” Nas res tweeted.

Nas then briefly responded to another person, addressing the double standard within the music industry, where artists talking about women are left alone, but when he talks about a man, people are “up in arms.”

“it’s a million n***** in the industry that make nothing but songs about women, and y’all don’t complain. but i make my first song about a n**** and now it’s my entire artistry,” he said.

He added: “y’all crack me up man.”

The eccentric rapper got a second UK number one in March with his controversial song ‘MONTERO’. The song came under fire because of some religious elements used in the music video.

Those whose views are right-wing leaning criticized Nas for sacrilege, using scenes in the music video based on the bible, such as the Garden of Eden, and venturing “into hell “to give the devil a lap dance.

Recently, Nas’ infamous ‘Satan Shoes,’ (a Nike sneaker) in collaboration with MSCHF that allegedly contains a drop of human blood is going into a product recall after being hit with a lawsuit by Nike.
