Four months after Nike and MSCHF Product Studio settled their lawsuit over Lil Nas X's Satanic sneakers, the rapper is still wondering what really got people's blood boiling after Tony Hawk promoted a new skateboard with his real blood on them.
The canned mountain water company Liquid Death revealed on Tuesday in a graphic video announcement that the legendary skateboarder's blood would be infused with the red paint on its latest skateboard, aptly titled Hawk Blood Deck, which already sold out all 100 products. In the clip, Hawk says part of the proceeds from the limited-edition board would go toward "killing plastic pollution and to building skate parks in underserved communities."
"Now that tony hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were mad for some other reason?" Lil Nas X tweeted Wednesday (Aug. 25) in his own defense.
