LIL Nas X clapped back at trolls who slammed his “pregnancy” announcement.
The singer, 22, debuted his fake “baby bump” on Thursday to promote his new album Montero.
While most fans praised the bold move, some critics expressed their discomfort at the TikTok video of his bump on social media.
One troll posted: “I really tired of lil nas .. his ugly a** to much … fkn roach.”
In his trademark tongue-in-cheek way, Lil Nas X hit back: “You really on here calling a young mother to be ugly?”
Another troll wrote: “Dr Umar said they will use lgbtq to distract us from black civil rights and then they birthed lil nas x who is just a puppet for whatever label he is signed to.”
The rapper shot back: “Oh yes a pregnant n***a, the greatest threat to black civil rights.”
He then tweeted: “N***as be like “you desperate for attention” then proceed to give it to me.”
Another troll wrote: “Lil Nas X goes from one outlandish antic to the next. You will never see a white, Asian, Hispanic or Arab equivalent to him in the entertainment industry. Those communities would not tolerate that c**p. Black people sooner or later we are going to make an example out of black.”
The Old Town Road rapper responded: “One day y’all will learn i am not a representation of anyone but lil nas x.”
He added in a separate tweet: “Let me get offline, all of this negative energy is not good for the baby.”
His silence didn’t last long as he shut down comedian Donnell Rawlings, who posted: “I’m all for freedom of whatever.
“But at this point, Lil Nas is f***ing with the minds of kids. What are your thoughts, how do I explain this to my son?”
Lil Nas X replied: “N***a said ‘how do i explain this to my son’ i’m screaming.”
LIL NAS IS ‘PREGNANT’
He announced he was “pregnant” with his album on Thursday, while going shirtless and displaying his huge “baby bump” in a TikTok clip.
He looked straight into the camera as text above him read: “I have an announcement. Baby ‘Montero’ is due September 17, 2021.”
Lil Nas X also took part in a maternity shoot, showing off his “bump” while wearing a white robe and flower crown.
He captioned it: “SURPRISE! I can’t believe i’m finally announcing this. My little bundle of joy “MONTERO” is due September 17, 2021.”
Fans couldn’t help but notice that his “pregnancy” seems to echo Drake’s Certified Lover Boy album cover – which features 12 emojis of pregnant women and was released on Thursday.
Montero is the third album from Lil Nas X, though it is his first studio album.
