Lil Nas X arrives at the Tom Ford Fall Winter 2020 Show at Milk Studios on Feb. 7, 2020 in Los Angeles.

Lil Nas X trolled "Trollz" rapper 6ix9ine right back after he took shots at the rapper's sexuality by making a public homophobic comment.

On Wednesday, 6ix9ine commented under DJ Akademiks' Instagram post about an NY Post article titled "China makes COVID-19 anal swabs mandatory for foreigners." He wrote, "Lil nas x entered the chat" with a skull emoji. In response, the "Old Town Road" rapper claimed 6ix9ine had previously slid into his DMs.

"This you ?" he tweeted Thursday with a TikTok video that juxtaposed 6ix9ine's homophobic remark with an Instagram DM from Feb. 16 that read, "Gonna be in ya city soon what you doing lol?" with the upside down smiley face and heart emojis.

But as Lil Nas X danced to his yet-to-be-released song "Call Me by Your Name" behind the receipts, 6ix9ine denied their existence.

He took to his own IG Stories on Thursday to "nip this sh-- in the bud" by navigating to Lil Nas X's account and revealing no direct messages between the two. "Stop playing with me son," he concluded.
