Lil Nas X is celebrating the success of his bottoming banger “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” by casually clapping back any conservative calling the song “depraved” and “evil”.

As countless fans welcomed Lil Nas X, who both invented private property and Spongebob Squarepants memes, as their saviour, the singer picked up on a few who weren’t as happy about the song.

For some reason, giving Satan a fiery lap dance after pole dancing down to Hell itself has irritated some conservative commentators on Twitter.

Across a series of tweets, the hitmaker hit back against some of the blasphemous backlashes his sensational music video stirred up.

Lil Nas X reminds conservatives calling his music ‘evil’ that there are ‘mass shootings every week’

Director and self-proclaimed “free thinker” Robby Starbuck showed how much of a free thinker he is by tearing down Lil Nas X on Twitter.

He decried the video as “pushing out intentionally evil content to kids”.

“Many of these people are evil,” he added, “I say this having directed a lot of these celebs.”

We’re not sure if “these celebs” are going to hire him again after that comment.

Lil Nas X simply responded “satan 😍😍😍” to him.

In a since-deleted tweet, author Matthew Betley shared an opinion that absolutely nobody asked for.

“It’s just sick and depraved and an attempt to destroy our society,” he said of the video, according to screenshots.

“There is a mass shooting every week that our government does nothing to stop,” the 21-year-old songwriter replied.

“Me sliding down a CGI pole isn’t what’s destroying society.”

He does have a point there.

Rapper Mint Chip, who has 8,000 followers, was next on Lil Nas X’s radar, who has 5.7 million followers.

Mint Chip shared video footage of the “Old Town Road” musician performing in a school assembly hall, dozens of cowboy hat-wearing children jumping and singing along with glee.

The system is targeting kids,” Mint Chip wrote. “Lil Nas X’s fanbase is mostly children.

“They did the same thing with Miley Cyrus after Hannah Montana.”

“There was no system involved,” the internet personality replied.

“I made the decision to create the music video. I am an adult. I am not gonna spend my entire career trying to cater to your children. That is your job.”
