Lil Nas X shut down a rapper’s bizarre ‘homophobic’ rant about his dominatrix cowboy look with just six words
A rapper went on a bizarre ‘homophobic’ rant about Lil Nas X and his hot pink Grammys look, but the “Old Town Road” singer responded in the best way and even turned it into promo.
Lil Nas X wore an incredible head-to-toe pink Versace look to the awards, where he won two Grammys for his viral hit “Old Town Road”.
But rapper Pastor Troy was so offended by the ensemble that he took to Instagram to rant about it, somehow managing to blame Lil Nas X’s sartorial choices for his own lack of Grammys.
In the now-deleted post, he wrote: “Welp, Guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY… If this what I gotta wear. They love to push this s**t on Our Kids… Some may say, ‘He’s making money!’ RuPaul do too, but I ain’t bumping his CD!”
Pastor Troy also expressed how proud he was of his teenage son for sharing his views.
He continued: “The other day Applebee’s had some punks kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks. First thing my 14 yr old son said was, ‘F**** Applebees’ and it brought joy to my heart!
“He sees it…their agenda to take the masculinity from Men, Black Men Especially.”
He added: “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 For real!”

Before Pastor Troy took down the post, Lil Nas X turned the homophobic rant into an opportunity to promote his new single “Rodeo”.
He commented: “This is so sad. Stream Rodeo.”
The Grammy-winner then retweeted the post and simply wrote: “Damn I look good in that pic on god.”

As well as defending Lil Nas X and his amazing outfit, many on social media were confused by Pastor Troy’s apparent hatred of gay people eating mozzarella sticks.

According to Pastor Troy, you should love thy neighbor…except when they're on a date, flirting, eating mozzarella sticks, and gay. In that case, you should get on social media and make a damn fool of yourself and expose hatred and toxic intolerance.
