Lil Nas X fired back at a user on Twitter for claiming that Andrew Tate is a better "role model" than him.

Lil Nas X called out a user on Twitter who compared him to Andrew Tate. In doing so, the user shared a screenshot from Nas' "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)" music video which showed the rapper dancing on Satan. They argued that Tate is a better "role model" than Lil Nas X.

"On the left, we have 'Lil Nas X' twerking on Satan," the user began, before adding, "On the right, we have Andrew Tate, who teaches young people to think critically, to take care of their physical health and build financial security. Guess which one is deemed controversial and which is hailed as a role model."

Nas fired back with two points. Firstly, he explained, "that is a cgi animated being not satan from the bible book." Then he argued, "there’s no such thing as a good role model, y’all need to find yourselves and stop looking for people to look up to." Many other Twitter users sided with Nas in the back in forth. "Gosh this is a tough one, but I’m going to have to say the accused human trafficker is the controversial one?" one fan of Nas' wrote, referencing Tate's recent arrest in Romania for alleged human trafficking and the forming of an organized crime group.

Outside of calling out haters on Twitter, Nas recently starred in a new campaign for Coach that highlights the brand's Tabby bag. The campaign features the message “what we carry makes us stronger.” Nas spoke about why he signed on for the effort with Rolling Stone. “There are definitely different sides of me that coexist at the same time,” he told the outlet. "[There’s] Lil Nas X, the pop star, all the cool clothes singing on stage, and then there’s Montero behind the scenes, who’s still growing and learning and figuring out life just like anybody else.”
