Y'all know who Lil Nas X is — a rapper and gay icon in the making. He needs no introduction because his name is probably all over your timeline, so let's get right to it.
Earlier this year, Lil Nas X released his controversial Satan shoes in correlation with the hit song "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)." The shoes, which contained one drop of human blood, led to a lawsuit and settlement between Nike and the cooperating shoe company MSCHF.
Flipping a controversy and negative news coverage on its head, Lil Nas X released his latest music video, "Industry Baby," which features him satirically being imprisoned for selling the Satan shoes, and WHEW. Twitter is in shambles over this video.
Whether it be the one-liners in court, the shower scene, the Colton Haynes cameo, the MEN, or just enjoying watching Lil Nas X flip what straight men have done with women in their videos for years, there is A LOT to talk about. So, here are some of Twitter's best reactions:
Lil Nas X every time he drops a music video
Me after hearing industry baby by lil nas x
I think this accurately describes all our faces on this scene. #LilNasX
That new Lil Nas X got me liking MEN
“Lil Nas X doesn’t represent me”me:
Lil Nas waking up all the other inmates to dance in his music video
jack harlow walking on to the set and seeing lil nas x butt naked
lil nas x after the director asked him to get naked for the industry baby video
The fact that Lil Nas X can deliver whole bops while consistently making homophobes mad
why am i watching this lil nas x video feeling so proud like he's my son? I think it's the audacity for me. I will always give it up for someone willing to play at that level
She would have broke Lil Nas X out of that prison facility faster
~@LilNasX is DIFFERENT. In the best possible way. Out and proud, killing the social media game, giving back to important causes and living his best life. It’s amazing to watch. I hope the people around him continue to uplift and protect him. I’m a fan.
i like the lil nas x video, alright now.
I really love Lil Nas X not because of his brilliance but because of his intention behind his work. He managed to turn the controversy/his chaos into not only a smash hit with “Industry Baby” but it also doubles as a philanthropic effort for the Bail Project. He’s here to stay.
