Lil Nas X Responded to A Fellow Rapper's Homophobic Comment, And It Was Perfect

Twitter also let loose on Pastor Troy after he said Lil Nas X and other members of the LGBTQ community "love to push this sh-- on our kids"

Even though Lil Nas X is currently on yet another career high following his two Grammy wins, there are still people in the world who want to bring him down. Lucky for us, he refuses to let them. 

On Wednesday (Jan. 29), Down South Georgia Boys rapper Pastor Troy posted a photo of Lil Nas in his pink leather Grammys outfit on Instagram and unleashed a homophobic tirade against the "Old Town Road" rapper. "Welp, Guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY...If this what I gotta wear," he wrote. "They love to push this sh-- on our kids!!"

He continued his rant, talking about how he and his son recently saw a gay couple "kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks" in an Applebee's commercial. "First Thing My 14 yr old Son said was, 'F**** Applebee’s' And It Brought Joy to My Heart!!" he wrote. "He sees it...their agenda to take the masculinity from Men, Black Men Especially. Some may say, 'He Making Money!!' Rupaul do too, but I ain’t bumping his CD!!! Integrity is Priceless. Y’all Better open that 3rd Eye and let your Sons Know What Is Real...Or They Ass Gone Be Headed Down That Old Town Road Foreal!!"

Turns out that Lil Nas X saw the post, but instead of ignoring it, he decided to focus on what he liked about the rapper's post -- his look. "Damn I look good in that pic on god," X wrote.

Shortly after Lil Nas X made his post, Pastor Troy's name quickly started trending on Twitter, with multiple Lil Nas X fans taking their turn to roast the rapper for his offensive comments. "Ask anyone under 30 who pastor troy is," one user wrote. "Pastor Troy cracked his knuckles and typed that long message to let us know his breaking point is 2 men enjoying mozzarella sticks. Lmao," another wrote.
