Lil Nas X is fighting back on Twitter as several people made poisonous comments on Twitter regarding his new song “Industry Baby” and claimed that he is promoting “nudity on social platforms”.
In his new songs, Lil Nas X and male background singers are seen taking their pink jumpsuits off and are seen dancing naked (their genitals were blurred). After its release, many Twitter users criticized the artist and his video. On Sunday, a user posted, “Old Town Road” singer “isn’t fighting for gay rights and is marketing the sexual irresponsibility that’s causing young men to die from AIDS.”
“Being gay is one thing, but being a super spreader is another,” the user wrote. “There’s nothing healthy or helpful about that video. Especially for children.”
#LilNasX isn’t fighting for gay rights.
He’s marketing the sexual irresponsibility that’s causing young men to die from AIDS.
Being gay is one thing, but being a super spreader is another.
There’s nothing healthy or helpful about that video.
Especially for children.

Lil Nas X responds powerfully to these criticisms and wrote, “Y’all be silent as hell when n—– dedicate their entire music catalogue to rapping about sleeping with multiple women. But when I do anything remotely sexual I’m ‘being sexually irresponsible’ & ‘causing more men to die from aids’. Y’all hate gay ppl and don’t hide it.”

This isn’t the first time the artist has received harsh criticism, previously at the time “Montero” as well, people heavily accused him of “destroying society.” As in the video, Lil Nas X is seen sliding down a stripper pole to Hell and giving Satan a lap dance. The rapper in defends said, “Y’all saying a gay n—- twerking on a cgi satan is the end of times like slavery and the holocaust didn’t happen.”
Last month, when Lil Nas X on BET music awards ended his performance with lip-locking a male dancer, he stated that the reason being, “Y’all hate yourselves so much. Y’all live your lives trying your best to appease straight ppl,” he wrote. “Y’all are uncomfortable with what I do because y’all are afraid they will be uncomfortable with you. Work on yourselves.I love who i am and whatever i decide to do,” he added. “Get there.”
