Even rapper Saweetie got dragged into slander concerning the "Montero" artist's Lollapalooza set.

Time and time again, Lil Nas X proves that he's always got the chops to respond artfully to online haters. Now, he faced some criticism for his Lollapalooza Chile set, although it had nothing to do with the excellent performance itself. One particular tweet made social media rounds alleging that the MONTERO artist is faking his sexuality. "I feel like he’s not really gay or not really that feminine it’s so forced," the tweet read. Of course, the brain behind "Old Town Road" and so many more hits had a cheeky response up his sleeve.

"Oh no guys it's the estrogen expert," he fired off on Saturday morning (March 18). Also, he responded to another comment that suggested a similar close-minded mentality. "One day we will realise that Lil Nas X is not gay," another tweeter expressed. "He just finessed the LGBT community and got to the bag." This time around, his response was much more elaborate. "Do I have to give head at 3:45 am behind a McDonalds in Chicago on a Friday night during the middle of pride month while streaming on twitch and IG live for y’all to realize I am really a fruitcake?" he clapped back.

Lil Nas X Responds To Trolls Claiming He's "Fake Gay"

In fact, these responses to Nas X's show initially made headlines for how another rapper worked herself into the fray. Moreover, Saweetie liked that first tweet that the "INDUSTRY BABY" singer and rapper responded to about him being "fake gay." Unsurprisingly, responses to that mere like prompted the "My Type" rapper to clarify her like on Twitter. "He was lookin fine af,” she tweeted shortly after people started noticing her like. “That’s why I liked the video I didn’t see the shadiness …. *unlikes*."

Meanwhile, most people actually took the set for what it was and praised the unreleased track that Nas X played in the clips that these tweets reference. Furthermore, it's a Saucy Santana collab titled "Down Souf Hoes" that's sure to fire up any dance floor when it drops. Honestly, people trying to get under his skin only makes his hilarious responses and personality that much more gratifying. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Lil Nas X.
