Watch: Lil Nas X Shuts Down More Trolls Over Backlash of New Music Video

Monday March 29, 2021

Lil Nas X spent the weekend fighting more trolls on Twitter who took issue with the out rapper's new song and music video "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)."

Though, fans love the track and video, in which Lil Nas slides around a stripper pole into hell to give the devil a lap dance, many have voiced their concerns over the clip and track, but the musician is clapping back.

Rapper Joyner Lucas took issue with Lil Nas. "I think the biggest problem for me is the fact he don't understand 'old town road' is every kids anthem," he tweeted. "Children love him for that record. They tuned in and subscribed to his channels. So with no disclaimer he just dropped some left fieldish and all our kids seen it. Smh."

But Lil Nas, who holds the record for the longest-running number one song ever on Billboard for "Old Town Road," had the perfect reply.

Right Wing Watch also shared a clip of Pastor Greg Locke, where he's seen railing against "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" during a livestream of his Sunday service. Lil Nas again had an ideal response.

Lil Nas even took on South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. She tweeted outrage over the rapper's "Satan sneakers." Of course, he shut her down, as well. (Click here to read more about his shoes.)

He even responded to Cadence Owens.

Before that, just as the video was released Friday, Lil Nas fired back at Robby Starbuck, a Republican candidate for Congress from Tennessee, and also a video producer.

The online outrage from conservatives is similar to the one that ensued when Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion released their single "WAP." Click here to read more about that and revisit the "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" music video below.
