Lil Nas X Thanks Jack Harlow With Film Premiere Fashion

Jack Harlow is a busy man right now. He just released his third studio album, Jackman. Furthermore, he just hit up his hometown of Louisville to launch his charity and attend the Kentucky Derby. Additionally, he was walking the red carpet for the premiere of his film debut, Hulu's remake of White Men Can't Jump.

However, jumping back to 2022 for a second, Harlow made a statement on the red carpet for the BET Awards. After Lil Nas X was not invited, Harlow rocked up to the ceremony in a Lil Nas X t-shirt. The pair have previously collaborated on "Industry Baby" and are reportedly close friends. Well, Lil Nas X was sure to thank Harlow with his red carpet fit for White Men Can't Jump.

Lil Nas X Wears Jack Harlow T-shirt

Lil Nas X's choice of red carpet fit was a meta-reference to the BET Awards snub. He arrived at the White Men Can't Jump premiere in a black t-shirt that said "JACK" and had a picture of Harlow from the BET Awards. To put it another way, it was a t-shirt of Jack Harlow wearing a Lil Nas X t-shirt. It was a touching gesture between two close friends. While neither has publicly commented on it, the pair were photographed together at the event. While Lil Nas X is yet to break into acting, he does have an eye for comedy. Last year, he did a series of skits to promote the League of Legends World Championship. He also created the tournament's anthem, "Star Walkin'".

White Men Can't Jump stars Jack Harlow as Jeremy, a streetball hustler whose grift relies on his opponents discounting him because he's white. He reluctantly teams up with Kamal (Sinqua Walls) to compete in a $500,000 streetball tournament. It's a remake of the 1992 film of the same name, which starred Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes. Music video director Calmatic makes his directorial debut, while the script was written by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. White Men Can't Jump is set to release on Hulu on May 19. What do you think of Lil Nas' t-shirt? Are you looking forward to White Men Can't Jump? Let us know in the comments.
